When Animals Come to Dinner

Do you have  nuisance animals in your yard, garden, or farm?  This presentation will give you some ideas for developing your own animal control strategy!

You’ll learn tips for dealing with above-ground pests, below-ground pests, and fliers.  Specifically, you’ll learn about deer control and exclusion and repellents to help you control feeding damage.
