• CRITTER CONTROL

    The sprawl of suburbia, destruction of wildlife areas, overregulation of game animals, and reduced popularity of hunting and fishing have resulted in more people coming into direct contact with wild animals on a regular basis. In this invaluable do-it-yourself guide, veteran outdoorsman Larry Grupp gives readers a comprehensive toolbox of specific devices and strategies to deal safely, legally and effectively with more than 30 common North American pests, including deer, bears, raccoons, rabbits, beavers, porcupines, skunks, foxes, coyotes, rats, squirrels, bats, birds, fish and reptiles. Understanding these critters and how to best control them is the basis of this information-packed manual. You will learn when to be cautious, when to be accommodating and when and how to take direct action if the animals must be eradicated. The primary tools for dealing with unwanted creatures are fences, repellants, fumigators and traps. Grupp examines each solution and tells the reader how to most effectively and economically use them. He also provides a helpful table for using specific baits and lures to trap various varmints. City and country dwellers alike will find the answers they need to rid their homes and properties of destructive wildlife once and for all.
