Best Practices for Wildlife Control Operators is the only manual of this scope written with the needs of the private contractor in mind. This practical how-to training manual focuses on the best practices for wildlife control, the prevention of wildlife damage problems and realistic assessment of job risks for wildlife control operators. It is currently the only comprehensive manual that offers a step-by-step approach to the practical application of the theory of integrated wildlife damage management.
This manual gives readers the tools they will need to think critically and creatively, so they can choose successful solutions for the many different situations they will encounter in their work. The manual describes a broad array of tools, techniques, and resources backed by an easily understood decision-making model. The basic biology and natural history of the species most likely to cause nuisance problems, with specific management recommendations for each species is included. The safety, ethical, and legal issues related to wildlife control activities is also included.It can be used to train a broad range of people from those with little familiarity of the subject to experienced operators who have used other approaches to their work.
The material is far superior to anything we have. This project is well done and should do well in the marketplace. The content and organization of the material is excellent, the amount of information is appropriate, and the reading level is suitable for the market.
