Strategies for Reducing Wildlife Damage in Orchards
Robert K. Swihart et al
When choosing a control strategy, an understanding of the behavior and ecology of the pest species is helpful. Past techniques which have ignored these facets of a species' biology often have failed. In addition, an understanding of the pest population as a dynamic, constantly changing group of individuals is important. For instance, dispersing animals may quickly settle into an area following a population decline. Because of this, removal techniques usually offer only short-term solutions. Modifying the animal's behavior and devising ecologically sound control measures offer considerable promise for long-term solutions to pest problems in orchards.
