Integrated Pest Management for Urban Wildlife

Wildlife Damage Management, Pest Management In and Around Structures February 12, 2016 Print Friendly and PDF

Urban wildlife is wildlife that can live or thrive in urban environments. Some urban wildlife, such as house mice, are ecologically associated with humans. Different types of urban areas support different kinds of wildlife. One general feature of bird species that adapt well to urban environments is they tend to be the species with bigger brains, perhaps allowing them to be more adaptable to the changeable urban environment. 

As we urbanize the land, radical changes occur to sources of food, water, and shelter for wildlife. Some animals respond very well to the changes urbanization brings. In some cases, these animals may become a nuisance.
