Gardening in the Mountains presents:
Controlling Nusiance Wildlife in Your Garden and Landscape
Presenter: Phil Roudebush, Extension Master GardenerSM Volunteer
Unwanted wildlife can devastate a landscape and cause a headache for gardeners. But what is a gardener to do? This series of nine short videos cover the basic techniques used to discourage and cope with many types of nuisance wildlife.
Four videos cover mammals by size categories: largest, large, medium and small. Bees, Birds and Snakes are featured in another video. Learn the differences between voles and moles, including their physical characteristics, habitats, and “dining” preferences. Deer can quickly devastate a garden, one video pays special attention to these herbivores. Learn a variety of methods gardeners can use to minimize plant damage and make the landscape less hospitable to nuisance wildlife.
Products promising to rid your garden of voles, rabbits, deer, raccoons, and snakes fill garden store shelves. But which to use and are they effective? One 20-minute video, leaves the viewer with an assessment of the most effective repellents and a better understanding of their usefulness.
Controlling nuisance wildlife can be frustrating. Be much better prepared by viewing the video covering wildlife resources, integrated pest management and legal considerations for control in North Carolina.
