Eighty-seven percent said they remove plants from their boat before leaving the land in 2010 compared to 76 percent in 2009. Adopting this practice is important because boat traffic between lakes is the primary way that aquatic invasive plants such as Eurasian Water Milfoil and Curly-Leaf Pondweed spread to new, uninfected lakes.
