NUISANCE WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT SERVICES AND SOLUTIONS
“Nuisance Wildlife Management” is a term that describes the removal of certain pests of specific nature. Some of the key features and characteristics that lead to the appearance of wildlife nuisances take place in the form of fragmented habitats. Some pests are not tied to specific food sources, habitats, and/or landscapes. This means they are able to survive in areas that you might not want them to, such as your backyard or under your porch. Removing these pests can be problematic, but it’s definitely possible.
When understanding how to control nuisance wildlife, you must understand that there are several moving parts to the process. When removing nuisance wildlife, the objective is to do so in a humane, environmental, and constructive manner. Some methods may harm wildlife, yourself, or other animals. It’s important that four appropriate steps are taken for successful wildlife control:
The key factor in removing and controlling wildlife damage is pest identification. Only after understanding a pest, can one even hope to remove it for good. The good thing about pest identification is that it does not take an expert. Anyone with an internet connection and willpower can succeed in removing pests for good. If you still are stumped as to what type of pest is disrupting your way of life, pest control experts are here to answer any of your questions.

Control methods include repellents, toxic bait, and traps. The concept in wildlife control is to either introduce or remove something that is displeasing to the pest(s). Odor repellents are good to deter wildlife pests from feeding on plants and materials around the home. Other repellents such as tacky substances may deter birds from landing on objects. The problem with some repellants is that animals may grow accustomed to the odor and presence and perhaps learn to ignore them.
Now that a control method has been introduced, it’s time to monitor the location in question for potential reoccurrence. Pest control monitoring is a very important and integrated step in Nuisance Wildlife Management. The general rule is that if no pest is located, no pesticide is required. There are several methods of pest monitoring such as insect pest signs, site logs, and monitoring tools.
Pest signs include anything that the pest or questioned invader may leave in their wake. These signs include things such as droppings, frass, wings, pest-damaged wood, and many other types of trails. Site logs are basically a record of pest occurrences and observations. Pest locations and their behavior can tell a lot about the colony in which it came from. Eliminating or removing the colony is key to removing pests from your home for good. The final form of monitoring is with monitoring tools. There are several pest monitoring tools that attack pests in both passive and active manners. Passive monitors include devices such as glue traps or pitfall designs. These passive monitors are engineered to capture pests throughout their regular routine. Active monitors are devices or tools that detect the presence of a pest intentionally and actively. A good example of this is either Canine Inspection or Thermal Remediation.
