Nuisance Wildlife Control
is a specialty business. It requires a unique set of skills and more knowledge than most people realize. It is also a field
with unique risks. Nuisance wildlife control operators take care of difficult problems that few people can properly or
safely handle. I am not some backwoods bucktoothed yokel trapper. I am a college educated and state licensed professional.
People seem to have no problem paying the electrician or plumber for their skills, and you won't find them crawling in a hot
attic to remove a litter of raccoons with an angry mother raccoon lurking nearby!
Many people have the mindset
that wild animal problems should be taken care of for free. This stems from the time when state and county agencies did indeed
take care of wild animal problems. However, as the problem grew, they stopped providing this service, and it is now in the
hands of the private sector - the nuisance wildlife trapper. I don't get state funding. No one is giving me a truck, traps,
equipment, gasoline, insurance, phone service, advertising, and the myriad of other expenses necessary to run a professional
operation. I must pay for these things myself. Some people seem to understand this, and others don't.
I feel a little exasperated
when a surprised person on the telephone utters, "You mean I got to pay for this?". Yes, you do, but please
be aware that you are paying for a special service. I find that all of my customers feel that they have received a very good
value, after they talk to me in person, and get their problem quickly and professionally taken care of.
