Recycling Fishing Line to Protect Wildlife
Published on 05/14/2021 under News A tangled line for anglers can be a nuisance, but for animals fishing line can be life threatening. As more people are hit the water to fish this summer, officials are reminding anglers to properly dispose of their discarded fishing line. Monofiliments can last for up to 600 years in freshwater, meaning a threat for generations. Wildlife rehab centers frequently treat diving birds and other animals that become tangled or ingest the line. Of course, lines should never be discarded in the water or left on shore. Even line tossed into an open garbage receptacle can can be picked out by scavenging birds. Rather than throwing the line in the garbage, there is a growing trend to recycle it. Specialized recycling programs melt the line into plastic pellets that can be turned into tackle boxes, spools, and fish habitat structures. Many lake organizations have established line recycling containers at their boat launches. The DNR provides instructions for those that would like to build their own using several sections of PVC pipe. They have additional information on their website.

Elevated Fire Risk Continues in Northwoods
Published on 05/14/2021 under News In what is has been an extended wildfire season here in Wisconsin, the DNR is again warning of elevated fire risk. While the foliage is beginning to green up, the northern two thirds of Wisconsin is again at risk of wildfires due to temperatures, winds and a relative lack of humidity. As of Friday morning, our entire listening area is in the "very high" fire danger category. This week alone, the DNR investigated more than 50 wildfires around the state. Debris burning continues to be a leading cause of grass fires. Locally, crews were busy with more than a half dozen fires. There were two each in Lincoln and Taylor Counties. A fire in Oneida County burned approximately three acres. Up in Vilas County crews responded to three wildfires including one Monday that burned 13 acres.

Gypsy Moth Trapping Begins this Month
Published on 05/14/2021 under News A state agency will be monitoring for gypsy moths in more than half the state's counties through the use of traps. The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection announced this week, that they will be setting more than 10,000 gypsy moth traps across 47 Western Wisconsin counties. That includes Lincoln, Oneida, Taylor and Price Counties. Michael Falk is coordinating the program for the DATCP. He says, "The data we gather from these traps provides an estimate of the state's gypsy moth population and is used to plan for next year's spray treatment." It also helps with their Christmas tree and tree nursery inspectors. The traps are small green boxes tied to tree branches. The traps contain the scent of a female gypsy moth, undetectable to other insects, but attractive to male gypsy moths. They'll monitor the traps throughout the summer until August when the male moths stop flying. At this point the traps will be removed. Those monitoring the traps will wear fluorescent vests and carry identification cards. Each trap is labeled with a phone number that property owners can call if they have questions or decide they want it removed. The DATCP has additional information on their gypsy moth webpage.
