The Good, The Bad and The Hungry: Controlling Nuisance Wildlife in the Home Landscape

While the growth of cities and suburban areas can displace some wildlife, many species actually thrive in these areas. Viewing these species as they travel through your backyard can be enjoyable, but sometimes conflict arises—usually in the form of some type of damage such as eaten plants,
dug up bulbs, or holes in the lawn. Fortunately, most wildlife damage can be managed with the right techniques and strategies.  Learn tools to manage and lessen the damage that can occur living with deer, geese, rabbits, skunks, bats, moles, voles, raccoons, woodchucks, and urban coyote. THis program is offered through the Ohio Woodland Stewards.
