More sea lamprey controls are planned for area river systems. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plan to kill lamprey larvae burrowed in the stream bottoms. The larvae live in certain Great Lakes tributaries and transform to parasitic adults which can migrate to the Great Lakes. Lampricides will be applied starting Tuesday to the Black River and Pipestone Creek systems in Allegan and Berrien Counties. The treatment should last about six days, depending on weather and stream conditions.
