Bird and mammal control
For several years now, municipalities and government agencies in Québec have been relying on us to implement wildlife management programs directed at “pest” species. These programs are adapted to meet the needs of each client after a thorough analysis of the issues they are facing as well as their specific objectives. Our experts also take care of obtaining the permits necessary to perform the wildlife management operations.
The species for which we have developed considerable expertise include the Canada goose, ring-billed gull, mallard, pigeon, European starling, snow goose, wild turkey, American beaver, white-tailed deer and coyote.
Large populations of birds in public places can require targeted interventions in order to minimize disturbance caused by their presence. Since many bird species are protected at the federal level by the Migratory Birds Convention Act or at the provincial level by the Act respecting the conservation and development of wildlife, it is important to be well informed and leave the management of “pest” birds in the hands of professionals.
Our biologists and technicians can elaborate and implement a bird management program targeting problematic species at your site according to your objectives, after a thorough analysis of the issue. Population monitoring is also integrated in the program.
We offer a combination of methods that has already proven itself to several clients: awareness workshops for citizens, bird abatement (canine team, trained birds of prey, remote-controlled vehicles, pyrotechnics, lasers, etc.), egg sterilization, installation of exclusion material (nets, fences) and more.
Our biologists and technicians can elaborate and implement a mammal management program targeting problematic species at your site according to your objectives, after a thorough analysis of the issue. Our methods have proved effective and meet the Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks’ applicable standards and recommended practices.
When managing a problem species, we use preventive and active methods according to the needs of each client. In the case of the American beaver, for example, these measures can range from simple habitat management measures to restore normal water flow, to the sterilization of adults or the capture of problem individuals in order to rapidly resolve emergencies.
Some of the methods we recommend include:
- Awareness workshop for citizens
- Population monitoring
- Capture and relocation of problem individuals
- Marking and telemetric monitoring (transmitter collars)
- Sterilization program
- Scare tactics
