The Difference Between Wildlife Extermination & Management

Get a Quick Quote



When it comes to wildlife, a lot of homeowners mistakenly use the words “extermination” and “management” interchangeably. So, if an animal invaded your home, how would you know whether to call for wildlife extermination or wildlife management?

Although they both remove unwanted animals, there is a key difference between wildlife exterminators and wildlife managers: humane treatment. To help you understand the most effective ways to take care of your pest problem, let’s explore these wildlife options a little bit more.

Post-Infestation Practices

Many people wonder what happens to an animal after a wildlife professional removes it from their home. Some fear the worst, while others hope for a happy relocation. The real fate of the animal, however, depends on which type of specialist receives the call.

Rather than addressing long-term effects, exterminators simply use pesticides or other toxic materials to eliminate animals immediately. These tactics not only fatally harm wildlife, but they also leave your home exposed for more animals to return in the future.

Wildlife management, on the other hand, uses environmentally friendly materials to safely keep animals away. Turning to integrated solutions, humane wildlife managers limit the use of chemicals and put a greater focus on determining the root cause of the infestation.

Long- vs. Short-Term Solutions

Again, the big difference between wildlife extermination and management is the degree of humane handling. Exterminators are quick to use harmful chemicals and pesticides. These damaging treatments might get the job done in the short term, but animals are almost certain to come back later.

Alternatively, those working in wildlife management rely on humane strategies to guide prevention and removal. For example, instead of dousing your home with a chemical solution, wildlife managers will identify the source of interest for wildlife, safely exclude the animals, and repair the openings they used for entry.

By restoring parts of your home that animals use for entry, wildlife management teams play a crucial role in preventing future infestations in your home. And because wildlife managers use such a comprehensive approach, you can count on these professionals as a long-term wildlife partner, rather than a one-time call.
