Hydrilla on boat's motor and trailer

To prevent spreading aquatic nuisance species:

  • Inspect your vessel and trailer, and remove any plants and animals you see before leaving the area.
  • Clean your boat and trailer by removing all visible plants or animals. Wash the boat with soapy water, preferably with a sprayer that heats to 140°F.
  • Drain all the water from your boat by removing all plugs and running the bilge pump.
  • Dry the boat by allowing it to sit out at least five days if possible before going on to a new waterbody.
  • Empty your bait bucket on land. Never release live bait into a body of water or release aquatic animals from one body of water into another.
