No, they aren't edible. They'll ruin just about everything they touch, though -- clogging drains, filters, piping and equipment. It's a nightmare.

What are they doing to try and to stop this invasion? I heard they are washing boats as they go in and come out, how is this effecting the invasion? Or is it at all?
