Cray Day in Michigan
Yes – I left my crawfish in Michigan (LOL) . We lived the last 18 years in Michigan and we moved back 6 years ago to my home state to help my elderly parents. I came across this in the news and thought I would share,.
Michigan – has a crawfish problem.
The DNR said it is the first case of a live red swamp crayfish to be found in the wild in the state. Another of the invasive crustaceans was found in a retaining pond in Novi days later, the DNR said.
Now, they’re trapping the critters to try to get a handle on the infestation, but officials say totally eliminating them from the lake may not be an option.
That’s an issue because the crayfish can burrow and cause damage to bridges, dams and other structures, the DNR said. Ka;Kalamazoo News
