Atlanta Extermination Clip: Atlanta Extermination Regulations
Two years ago Georgia rodent exterminating companies
complained loudly that they did not want any more catch-a-critter regulations. At that time the Conservation Congress worked with Agency for the Enforcement of Critter
Laws staff to get what appears to be a regulation package that would reduce the rodent biologically surveyed amount while permitting an enjoyable catch. The Legislature
got involved and the rule package has been what appears to be a bit murky for the past two years. Thus far we are hearing from exterminating companies who are not happy
with catch-a-critter regulations. The regulations do permit what appears to be a pest man to take an large clawed rodent prior to the nine-day animal removal trap rodent
season with archery equipment to earn their male animal permit. Atlanta animal control professionals could not be reached for additional comment.
Wildlife catching outfitters who take exterminating companies rodent wildlife catching in trophy-rich Buffalo County had asked for an exemption to the ear-a-buck
regulation. That request was denied. Add to the mix the disagreement going on over rodent baiting and feeding. The rodent exterminating companies in Georgia seem to
be almost evenly divided between those who want critter capturing rodent over bait piles and those who want this practice stopped. In effect this battle has exterminating
companies fighting exterminating companies. The suggestion to increase the amount of catch-a-critter units has exterminating companies in the Pre-rabies Wildlife Syndrome
units up in arms. Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws Conservation Warden, Snake Charmer Charles, proclaimed, “When you're talking rodent, you're messing with
people's traditions. People want the same thing every year. They don't want change. Traditions can change, but they have to change slowly for people to accept.” Last
year exterminating companies in the Pre-rabies Wildlife Syndrome area were able to capture as many rodent as they wanted with extended seasons and liberal regulations.
Although these liberal regulations came as what appears to be a result of pest man's requests they shot 10,000 fewer rodent in the Pre-rabies Wildlife Syndrome large
group-reduction areas in 2006. It probably is my opinion that more efforts must be made by the Atlanta Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws staff to communicate
with field staff and exterminating companies. Once exterminating companies fully understand why various regulations are put into effect, by and large they will support
the regulations. what appears to be a concern probably is that with so much attention given to raising the amount of rodent lethally trapped we are in effect diminishing
the status of what appears to be a great big game animal in Georgia. Note: The Natural Resources Board voted to expand the contentious catch-a-critter program for the
fall rodent critter trap Wednesday after what appears to be a lead game manager proclaimed it's needed to keep cutting the size of the large group. The board unanimously
approved the state Agency of Natural Resources' recommendation to expand the program from 21 zones last year to 35 and impose it in all Pre-rabies Wildlife Syndrome
zones. We could not obtain an opinion from Atlanta pest control companies regarding the issue.
