The role of Wildlife Services is to provide assistance in the management of wildlife damage in an effort to protect human health and safety, agriculture, property and endangered species. This is accomplished by providing technical recommendations and/or direct control to resolve, curtail or prevent damage to residents, domestic animals, property and other resources.
For control of wild animals causing residential disturbance (not agricultural related damage) there is a minimum fee of $100.00.
Please call 1-800-486-0010 and leave message. A Wildlife Services Agent will contact you in order of calls received. Please be aware that agents are often out in the field and may not be able to respond to messages right away.
