DNR treating Rose Lake for Zebra Mussels

Email News Alerts

The Minnesota DNR was out at Rose Lake between Frazee and Vergas this morning (Thursday) treating a small section of the lake for zebra mussels after somebody brought an infested boat lift into the lake. Now, they're hoping a quick response and plenty of copper sulfate will kill the invasive species that have been spotted in that immediate area. This has homeowners around Rose Lake and other local residents crossing their fingers that the treatments will be effective.
