BOZEMAN – Montana State University Extension has a new 24-page booklet for sale about wildlife damage control for organic farmers.

Organic farmers of any size production can have challenges without using chemicals for wildlife or pest control. This color booklet was created to provide alternative controls appropriate for both traditional and organic farming. Written by retired MSU Extension wildlife specialist Jim Knight, the book describes how specific traps, methods and timing of control can be more efficient and cost-effective than the traditional use of toxicants.

“Wildlife Damage Control for Organic Farmers” highlights control methods for ground squirrels, gophers, voles, rabbits, woodchucks, birds, deer, skunks, raccoons and coyotes.

The free booklet (EB0220) can be picked up at the MSU Extension Distribution Center at 135 Culbertson Hall, or shipped for a nominal charge. Order online or call (406) 994-3273.
