Recently we at Loomacres Wildlife Management have been flooded with all sorts of calls and online requests for wildlife removal help. In Phoenix, AZ for example we have been at war with pigeons taking over people’s attics, their roof tops, and decimating yards and sidewalks with feces. In New Jersey and New York, we have had several nuisance geese issues on golf courses, town parks, and of course residential areas. The list keeps going and going but we do not mind as long as its what we do which is Wildlife Removal not Pest Control. Though they are similar in many ways there is a few big differences you should know before you reach out to a pest control company or a Wildlife Removal or Wildlife Management company like Loomacres.
Pest control is defined by the process of preventing or managing any unwanted animal from invading your home or place of business. Pest Control typically uses spray techniques and chemical repellents or deterrents to keep pest or unwanted creatures away. Many pest control cases include dealing with insects, mice, rats, roaches, bats in the attic, etc. from taking residence in your home. So, if you are having trouble with bees, ants, or small rodents give your local pest control guy a call.
Wildlife Removal or Wildlife Management is simply using techniques and equipment like trapping or depredation to remove an animal that has become a nuisance by either causing a threat to humans, pets, agriculture, or livestock. Most cases when dealing with a nuisance animal a depredation or removal permit is needed in which we will obtain from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
These nuisance animals typically are causing damage to crop fields or gardens, property structures like barns and sheds, or other animals. An example of this would be if you had a nuisance fox, coyote, raccoon, bear, mountain lion etc. that was eating your chickens, or your cattle and needed to be removed. Nuisance Geese that are over grazing in your yard or in your local park. We have worked with multiple municipalities when a deer herd is out of control and causing vehicle accidents and damage to residential property. One very popular service lately is crow management or crow hazing which for some cities in the U.S. is out of control (Click Here For Full Story)
I am sure you can see the difference now. Wildlife Removal is a growing need especially in growing cities and suburbs. As we continue to develop land and continue to minimize wildlife habitat, more and more cases of nuisance wildlife will occur.
