MONTE DRAPER | BEMIDJI PIONEER
Pat Rooney, owner of Denny's Resort on Lake Winnibigoshish, stands beside his private harbor holding non-native Chinese and banded mystery snails. The snails, long established in the lake, do not seem to do any harm but zebra mussels -- larvae of which were discovered this winter in Lake Winnie -- are more concerning. Rooney points out that where the snails take up residence -- dozens cover each of his dock posts -- are the prime locations for zebra mussel infestations.
