Two Michigan men, calling themselves the "Itch Busters," have proposed solutions
Two Michigan men, calling themselves the "Itch Busters," have proposed solutions for "swimmers itch" that is experienced by Belgrade Lakes residents. The rash is caused by a parasite that is believed to be spread by the common merganser duck and by a particular type of snail. The Belgrade Lakes Association is considering the pair's solutions. The men proposed to inject the ducks with a serum to kill the parasite, move them to the Kennebec River, and eventually perform some form of birth control on them, a procedure they say they have not yet perfected.
