Isaac dumps thousands of dead nutria on beaches
HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Hancock County officials are scrambling to deal with thousands of dead nutria that washed ashore on beaches during Hurricane Isaac.

The dead swamp rats have started to stink and officials say that could cause a health and environmental hazard to people.

"They're in the tide and just floating in and they're probably going to continue coming in over the next several days," said Waveland Mayor David Garcia. "There's no telling how many thousands we're going to have."

Re: Thousands of Dead Swamp Rats washing up on MS beaches
The nutria (a semi-aquatic rodent native to temperate South America) was introduced into North America in the hopes of bolstering the fur industry, but the quality of the pelt proved to be poor. Feral populations are the result of numerous accidental and intentional introductions. Foraging nutria have significantly impacted many wetland plant communities, reducing biodiversity, and altering marsh habitats. Their burrowing activity has resulted in damage to a variety of manmade structures.

Re: Thousands of Dead Swamp Rats washing up on MS beaches
Nutria can be infected with several pathogens and parasites that can be transmitted to humans, livestock, and pets. The role of nutria, however, in the spread of diseases such as **equine encephalomyelitis,**leptospirosis, hemorrhagic septicemia (Pasteurellosis), paratyphoid, and salmonellosis is not well documented. They may also host a number of parasites, including the nematodes and blood flukes that cause "Nutria itch" or "Swimmer's itch" (Strongyloides myopotami and Schistosoma mansoni), the protozoan responsible for giardiasis (Giardia lamblia), tapeworms (Taenia spp.), and common liver flukes (Fasciola hepatica). The threat of disease may be an important consideration in some situations, such as when livestock drink from water contaminated by nutria feces and urine.

Nutria itch? Other common names for this scourge of the marsh are more descriptive. “Creeping eruption” reflects the snakelike lines of irritation caused by immature parasitic larvae crawling beneath the skin. “Marsh itch” reflects the parasite’s environmental niche and attests to its most common symptom, the itch that can cause the sufferer to become nearly psychotic from lack of sleep.

I guess they can drown if you hold them under water long enough..

Live cage traps: Place the cage traps on land or on a raft floating in the water. Destroy the nutria by drowning or shooting them while the nutria are in the trap or relocate the nutria far far away.

Pesticides: There are no approved pesticides for nutria pest control.

Poison: There are no approved poisons that kill nutria.

I cant believe that the rats did not seek higher ground when the storm came in. Rats are always the first one off a sinking ship.

Re: Thousands of Dead Swamp Rats washing up on MS beaches
The nutria now washing ashore probably drowned in the Louisiana marshes from Hurricane Isaac's storm surge, and the tide is bringing them into the Mississippi Sound, he said.

"You can see them floating in."

The dead rodents are a health hazard, especially in the heat.

"They can blow up like a basketball and explode," he said.

He urged people to stay off the beaches, which are closed indefinitely from Lakeshore Drive east of Silver Slipper Casino through Bay St. Louis, because of the safety and health risks.

"We don't know what's still alive under all that grass," he said.

Having been to Mississippi, I can't think of a better place for them to end up.
