Hello everyone. It's been quite a while since I've posted here but I wanted to bring this to everyone's attention. Feel free to ignore if this has already been discussed.

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission (NC WRC) has issued a consumer alert warning that the invasive freshwater zebra mussel has been discovered in imported Marimo moss balls that have been distributed to retailers throughout the US. With the posting of the consumer alert update, the NC WRC has confirmed the presence of zebra mussels in Marimo moss balls purchased from retailers in NC. These little guys can cause quite a lot of issues if they establish themselves in local waters so I urge everyone to check any recently purchased moss balls and follow the treatment/disposal guidelines in the links below.
