As a result, wildlife control has now become the number one add-on service to existing pest control operations. The meeting agenda will cover licensing requirements. Participants will learn how to trap, transport and dispose of the major animals: squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, moles, bats, snakes, etc. There will also be a demonstration of the latest tools for trapping, handling and personal protection.

During the 2012 New York Pest Expo, Alan Huot presented Adding Wildlife Control to Your Existing Business.  He pointed out that it seems to be a natural progression to any PCO’s operation.
