Lake Dunmore group taps weevils in fight against milfoil

Posted on May 28, 2012 |
By John Flowers



SALISBURY/LEICESTER — The Lake Dunmore/Fern Lake Association (LDFLA) wants to enlist the help of some tiny insects to accomplish a feat that has thus far eluded hail divers and heavy marine equipment: the eradication of Eurasian milfoil.

The LDFLA has applied for permission from the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources to introduce thousands of Euhrychiopsis lecontei — aka milfoil weevils — as another weapon in removing the nuisance aquatic weeds that have been steadily encroaching on the lakes.

Law bans popular fertilizers: No more 'P' on Vermont lawns

Posted on April 23, 2012 |
By Andrew Stein

VERMONT — When Gene Nolette, owner of Leicester-based Gene’s Property Management, went to buy the popular fertilizer mix “10-10-10” for lawn application this month, he was surprised to find that he wasn’t able to.

The fertilizer, aptly labeled for its three main nutrients, is comprised of 10 percent nitrogen, 10 percent phosphorus and 10 percent potassium. But a Legislative act passed in 2011, which took effect Jan. 1, has outlawed the application of phosphorus fertilizers on lawns, with a few exceptions.

By Christian Woodard



LEICESTER/SALISBURY — When the last ice melts off, the annual battle for Lake Dunmore will begin again. On one side: an army of volunteers, paid divers and milfoil specialists. On the other: an underwater invasive plant called Eurasian watermilfoil.

The population of milfoil in Lake Dunmore and Fern Lake has grown tenfold since 2009, and is expected to double again this season, according to Jay Michaels, a trustee of the Lake Dunmore and Fern Lake Association (LDFLA)

Sugaring.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — In his 34 years of maple sugaring, Starksboro’s Dave Folino has encountered few winters like this one.

“It’s not really a winter,” said Folino. “It’s pretty much a perpetual sugar season.”

MIDDLEBURY — French inventor François Isaac de Rivaz created one of the first internal combustion engines at the beginning of the 19th century. It ran on hydrogen gas. Around that same time, a nascent Middlebury College hired its first mathematics professor, expanding its offerings into the sciences. Now, more than 200 years after the onset of these seemingly unrelated events, their historic ripples have collided.
