Alexander is a former associate editor with American Vegetable Grower® and currently a contributing writer in Denver, CO. More than half of all farmers and ranchers experience damage from wildlife each year.

WS works to reduce this damage by providing producers with both technical and direct management assistance to resolve wildlife confl icts. Technical assistance -- the information, advice, and materials to resolve confl icts on their own -- enables producers to independently reduce wildlife damage.

WS provides. Fencing deer out of the orchard is the most efficient way to reduce damage when deer density is high and damage extensive. The conventional 8-foot woven-wire fence effectively excludes deer by forming a barrier around the orchard.

The fence consists of two widths of 4-foot woven wire and foot posts. Human-wildlife conflict management Human-wildlife conflict can be managed through a variety of approaches. Prevention strategies endeavour to avoid the conflict occurring in the first place and take action towards addressing its root causes.

Protection strategies are implemented when the conflict is certain to happen or has already occurred. Three basic forms of management strategies exist for wildlife disease, as follows: prevention of introduction of disease, control of existing disease or eradication.

Management may be directed at the disease agent, host population, habitat or be focused on human activities. These manuals focus on all aspects of wildlife damage management (WDM) that are essential for Master Gardener volunteers. The first volume covers core WDM principles important for all species.

The second volume contains species-specific information for reducing wildlife conflicts. To order either book, contact @ the damage, it is wise to learn all you can about the animal’s habits.

Knowing what an animal eats, where it hides and when it is active can help you in planning your strategy. PLAN YOUR STRATEGY or a USDA APHIS Wildlife Services office. Be sensitive to the values of others.

People have a wide range of feelings about wildlife. A serious. The cost-effectiveness of habitat manipulation as a management strategy for the control of rodent pests in Australian macadamia (Macadamia integrifolia) orchards was investigated in a 3-yr study that combines a pest management strategy with a conservation manipulation involved the total removal of exotic weeds from an adjacent non-crop riparian habitat, which.

Reducing Wildlife Damage to Forest Resources By DALE NOLTE Wildlife is an integral attribute to forest ecosystems. However, wildlife can cause problems. Severity will depend on the species and numbers of animals present, along with existing habitat conditions.

An IPM approach to deer damage would include careful monitoring and the use of one or more of the following strategies, depending on the nature of the problem: population management, fencing, repellents and vegetation management (Figure 2).

and evaluate a range of potential mitigation actions for reducing risk to natural hazards and disasters. The focus of this document is mitigation, which is action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to hazards.

Mitigation is different from preparedness, which is action taken to improve emergency response or operational preparedness. Acid rain is one of the major environmental threats since 19th century. This paper reviews the progress report of US EPA () and summarizes the issue in various environmental aspects.

Habitat modification to control voles includes mowing, reducing thatch, maintaining vegetation-free strips near the base of tree trunks and eliminating potential cover around orchard borders. Hardware cloth barriers exclude meadow voles from gnawing on tree trunks but are ineffective in controlling root damage by pine voles.

The most effective way to reduce bird damage to small orchards and isolated trees is netting. You can prevent access of birds to ripening fruit by placing 1/4- to 1/2-inch mesh plastic netting over the plant.

A small subset of bird species was observed foraging on apples yet the effect of birds as agents of fruit damage appeared rather minor and birds did not reduce C. pomonella damage. Our results demonstrate that organic apple orchards have the potential to provide habitat for diverse bird communities, including species typically sensitive to.

Human-elephant conflict is a major conservation concern in elephant range countries. A variety of management strategies have been developed and are practiced at different scales for preventing and mitigating human-elephant conflict.

However, human-elephant conflict remains pervasive as the majority of existing prevention strategies are driven by site-specific factors that only offer short. 13 Wildlife PoPulation Control Understanding both the habitat and wildlife found on air- ports is critical in effective integrated wildlife population management.

Wildlife is present at airports because of the availability of food, water, and shelter. As a result, remov- ing, reducing, and eliminating these key habitat attractants is paramount. One strategy for reducing deer damage is to harvest crops as early as possible to reduce the period during which crops are vulnerable to deer.

Another is to plant crops that are favored by deer as far from wooded cover as possible to reduce the likelihood deer would be willing to travel across highly exposed areas to access favored crops. Wildlife response strategies are categorized as primary, secondary, and tertiary.

The primary strategy is to control oil release and spread at the source through mechanical containment and recovery, protective booming, in situ burning, and/or dispersants.

alfalfa fields, vineyards, and orchards in close proximity to deer or elk habitat, likely will require a permanent 8-foot-tall woven wire fence. The Oregon State University Extension publication The Wildlife Garden: Reduce Deer Damage in Your Yard, ECoffers some good suggestions for deer and elk repellents and exclusion devices.

Dogs can protect orchards, Christmas tree plantations, or vineyards from deer or turkey damage. Dogs within an invisible-fence system may reduce deer damage to home garden and landscape plantings. Hazing involves the use of dogs, hawks, falcons, or radio-controlled aircraft or boats to drive nuisance animals from a site.

There are two alternative control strategies for meadow voles. First, if the damage is extensive, immediate treatment of the planting with a rodenticide may be necessary.

Second, following successful rodenticide treatment, you can reduce or remove grass thatch to. experts from the IUCN SSC Task Force on Human Wildlife Conflict, and Chester Zoo. The workshop comprised presentations, site visits and breakout sessions wherein working groups discussed key issues and strategies for reducing damage by bats and improving lychee productivity more generally.

Resulting recommendations focused on: 1. invasive or over-abundant wildlife to reduce negative ecological effects, or reduce human-wildlife conflicts.

This is wildlife control. An example is the reduction of white-tailed deer, Canada geese, and Snow geese in localized areas well below carrying capacity to reduce crop, garden, and lawn damage.

The NWRC Research Gateway contains research articles, reports, factsheets, technical notes, data and other materials authored or co-authored by NWRC scientists and colleagues.

The majority of the entries are journal articles but the database also includes conference proceedings, tech notes, book chapters, and other research publications.

Organic tree fruit quality and yield are often reduced (10 - >80%) because of insect and pest damage. No effective control measures exist for many of these pests.

This increases economic risk and can reduce growers’ motivation to develop organic production. Usually, it is more cost-effective to respond quickly to signs of damage than to wait until damage becomes severe.

The complete elimination of rodents from ag systems is neither necessary nor feasible. Additional resources and acknowledgements.

Pheromones, plastic mulches, and row covers all allow us to reduce pest damage and control weed populations.

IPM is a proactive approach to growing crops. Support Local Agriculture: It offers multiple benefits to the consumer & the environment: fresh, nutritious. Some landowners with small orchards, vineyards, and gardens have reported solving deer damage by using dogs trained to stay within an invisible fence system installed around the periphery of the plantings.

As with repellents (below), it is difficult to predict accurately where and for how long frightening strategies may work. Repellents. of wildlife damage is higher when (i) crops/livestock are unconfined and/or unprotected, (ii) natural prey is scarce or well-defended, (iii) landscapes provide ade-quate cover for predatory wildlife (e.g.

In IPM, pesticides are used in combination with other crop management approaches to minimize the effects of pests while supporting a profitable system that has negligible negative effects.

The following strategies are intended to contribute to preventing and reducing human-wildlife conflicts. Stakeholder representatives have been closely involved in the development of this document.

This strategic approach will build on that interest and source of knowledge and encourage stakeholders to be actively involved in the development and.Great tits can reduce caterpillar damage in apple orchards.
