Wildlife Damage

Deer-proof Garden

 

While most people enjoy and encourage wildlife on their property, occasionally damage is caused by various wildlife species. This is an issue for both agricultural and urban settings. There are several broad categories of wildlife damage control including: exclusion, repellents, fear provoking stimuli, habitat modification, and lethal control. Effectiveness varies between species and methodologies, and no one control method will be best in all situations. Detailed information for various wildlife damage scenarios, can be found at the following links.
