Castle Pines Wildlife Control Services
There are ethical, economic, and social aspects involved in removing wild animals from residential and commercial properties. However, by selecting a trusted provider of wildlife control services, you can ensure that the animals are removed, relocated, or eliminated in a way that prioritizes animal welfare while minimizing damage to property or animal habitats. Fortunately, the trained wildlife control professionals at OMNIS effectively solve problems relating to wildlife damage, nuisance wildlife situations, and general pest control.
MOST Wildlife Are Not Pests
Understand that wildlife and pests are two separate things. Animals are not pests until they create a direct conflict with people, human habitats, resources, or values. Therefore, a bird’s nest on your property that causes a lot of noise would not be an example of pests. Instead, the birds would be a wildlife nuisance issue that wildlife control operators resolve via the relocation of the animals. In many cases, operators resolve wildlife issues in this manner.
If you are wondering about the difference between wildlife and pests, these are some habits that qualify animals as pests:
- Animals cause damage to food, crops, buildings, vehicles, landscapes, or natural resources
- They cause safety issues, such as wildlife attacks and other threats to human health, like diseases
- Animals cause excessive noise, odors, excrement, and other unwanted behaviors
If wildlife displays unwanted behaviors, they are pests. Depending on the type of animal in question, this may alter the approach taken to control the situation.
What Is The Purpose Of Wildlife Control?
Through wildlife control, you can reduce the damage caused by wildlife to a minimum. Technicians do this by implementing control mechanisms that specifically alter the wildlife habitat in a way that prevents wildlife from becoming a nuisance on your property. In many cases, using an integrated wildlife damage management process achieves this goal.
What Is Integrated Wildlife Damage Management?
Pest and wildlife control experts can use all appropriate wildlife control strategies to reduce the amount of access that wildlife has to your property. The method by which wildlife control operators achieve this is formally called integrated wildlife damage management. This process involves setting reasonable goals, then proposing a solution that will effectively aid in integrated pest management and wildlife control.
Through this process, wildlife control operators can reduce fear in their clients and help them understand why wildlife is on their property. For example, you may be worried if you see an opossum walking through your backyard. Well, wouldn’t you be more concerned if that same opossum was in your home? By offering an integrated approach to wildlife damage management, wildlife control operators ensure that homeowners have adequate education. They learn about wildlife while also constructing cost-effective, safe, humane, ethical, and legal solutions.
The framework for the integrated approach to wildlife damage management is as follows:
- Identify the species that is causing problems
- Determine what damage there is
- Implement the least harmful, most cost-effective strategies
- Monitor the problem
- Assess the effectiveness of the solution
Through this framework, wildlife control operators can ensure that they satisfy the needs of their clients while also remaining legally and ethically sound. This benefits you, the customer because you don’t have to worry about someone causing problems on your property.
Here’s How Wildlife Control Operators Reduce Wildlife Damage
Now that you know about the framework we will use to eliminate your wildlife concerns, you should learn about the principles of wildlife control. Generally, you can expect our efforts to reduce wildlife damage to fall into four different categories. They include:
Here is more information about each category.
Animals are attracted to resources like food, water, and shelter. By eliminating these resources, wildlife control operators can limit the number of animals to survive in a given area. As an example, imagine someone who is dealing with a wild rat problem. These rats are likely attracted to the food, water, and shelter readily available around their property. While trapping these animals aggressively is one option, it would be wiser to clean the area and reduce the number of available resources. This is because, with tons of options for food and shelter, the rats will reproduce much faster than you can trap them.
By preventing animals from finding access to your property, you can stop them from causing damage. This act of preventing access is exclusion. Exclusion offers long-term protection because animals do not often have the means to bypass the exclusionary devices put in place by wildlife control operators. Some examples of these devices include bird nets, which cover trees and fences, stopping ground entry. Filling entry holes in buildings also qualifies as an example of exclusion. Typically, wildlife control companies have the expertise needed to implement exclusion-based solutions involving minor building skills.
Reduction involves using lethal methods to decrease the population of animals in your area. This often leads to populations decreasing rapidly, though lethal control often fails to reduce long-term damage. This is because, as long as food and resources are available, animals can repopulate quickly, then resuming business as usual.
Keeping animals out is one option, but driving them away is another. Using pain, fear, touch, or conditioned aversion to repel wildlife is a common approach used by wildlife control operators. There are a variety of devices that technicians use to this end, including repellants and frightening devices. Frightening devices are systems designed to scare animals away. The most famous example of frightening devices would likely be the scarecrow. Similarly, many devices are available that spray a jet of water whenever an animal enters a particular area. This water can confuse animals and make them run away.
Diversion is another part of repulsion. This method involves luring animals away using an attractant, like food. This way is less common in residential wildlife control. However, OMNIS Pest Control may provide you with a solution in this vein.
