Other Precautions

Do one or more of the following before you take your boat to another water body:

  • SPRAY it with high pressure to remove stuck AIS
  • RINSE it with very hot water: These water temperatures kill zebra mussels and some other AIS:
    • 140°F for at least 10 seconds
    • 120°F for at least 2 minutes
  • DRY the boat for at least 5 days
