The Glen Lake Association is experimenting with drone technology to combat swimmer’s itch. The objective is to locate common merganser nest cavities in the trees so we can learn more about their natural history that might give us a better handle on controlling their populations and thus reducing swimmer’s itch. GLA has partnered with Zero Gravity LLC and are finding that with drones, we can get a “bird’s eye view” of the forest and better analyze where nest cavities might be located. So far, we are making modest progress. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Rob Karner firstname.lastname@example.org.
