Moss Ball / Zebra Mussel (Background)
There has been concern that zebra mussels, an invasive species, have been hitchhiking on moss balls recently imported into North America. On the afternoon of Friday March 26th, we were ordered to not sell livestock for about 2 weeks from any water which have come into contact with recently received moss balls (Order has since been lifted - see above).
