Rats And Other Vermin Control On The Farm (online)

February 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

When wildlife invades livestock facilities and grain storage, they can cause major losses. Rats, mice and other rodents can infest grain and livestock feed and make it unsellable and unusable as feed. Wildlife such as raccoons, foxes and weasels can invade poultry houses and kill and maim birds. Pastured animals are subject to predation by a number of wildlife species.

Learning how to reduce wildlife losses on the farm to feed, grain and livestock mortalities with recommended practices will help improve farm profitability. UMaine Extension is sponsoring this Zoom session with Kathy Murray, IPM entomologist with Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry (MDACF), along with Adam Vashon, wildlife biologist with USDA Animal and Plant Health, Inspection Service (APHIS) Wildlife Services.

Cost: $5 suggested donation
