Properly planned management can still encourage
wanted wildlife species while minimizing nuisance wildlife problems.
Specifics vary on a case-by-case basis. However, successful plans
include taking steps to prevent damage before the damage occurs,
monitoring for signs of new damage, and minimizing further damage
through a combination of approved techniques. You will rarely
be able to eliminate nuisance wildlife, and minimizing nuisance
wildlife is an ongoing process. For information on managing nuisance
wildlife problems, contact the USDA
Wildlife Services/IDNR wildlife conflicts hotline at 1-800-893-4116.
If you have a nuisance wildlife problem, you will find that many
of the nuisance animals are regulated and protected by federal,
state, and/or local regulations.
