giving info does not mean the person who gets the info can use it. I have been giving squirrel control talks for over 20 years and have never been hurt by giving them. what I find is that most people are so set in their ways and bull headed that they will never use what you gave them in the first place, LOL then if they do try to use the info they only listened to part of what they think they should listen to and come up with some off the wall notion of what I said it won't work any way. LOL I will not tell everything.

information makes the industries stronger. every service industries gives a ton of information, mostly from the manufactures and the like,that is why the pest control fields are so strong. the information does not guarantee success. only the person or company that is using it controls success or failure.

The real nuts and bolts of this biz is not really shared on here . Reading animal sign and movement could never be typed . Just trapping few animals really is just temp fix . The key to getting referral biz is to stop the animals from coming back . Sure its good to get repeat biz but when they tell there friends they can see its just temp fix . The reason I get on here its to talk to people that do the same things I do . Kinda hard to get that other places . And what do we talk about wildlife control . Most people think I'm nuts in the head to crawl threw animal urine soaked things . It's nice to know that im not the only one who enjoys his job . Sharing ideas on here helps fine tune tec that I use . I've learned and shared ideas on here I know I have helped some and I know I've been helped as well so it's a two way street .

Because of people like you and many others that contribute to this site and other sites I have gained enough knowledge and confidence in my abilities to start my own ADC business. Without the people who contribute I would be years behind. I don't have much experience and don't contribute a lot but as I gain knowledge I will freely share it with others (probably not my competitors) because others are willing to share with me. If my ADC business works out like I think it will I will be able to quit my job I hate and do something I actually like to do.
Thank you! To everybody who contributes.

To better the industry. Sharing info does not reduce the amount of business available. However, it may cause you to compete at a higher level.

One thing I know for certain. A person with a passion for something will find that passion even though they may not even know what it is just yet - age does not matter.

The other two you listed are in the Raliegh Durham area. That's two counties away, so, still not any competition for me.

I checked the yellow pages. There are NO listings for wildlife services of any kind. The word "wildlife" isn't even in our yellow pages. The word "animal" is only used in correlation with animal hospitals.

On the NCWRC website, my name and number are the only ones listed for Wayne County.

There are several trappers listed but no other damage control agents.

I've done the web searches before and found nothing. My customers get my name from the local animal shelter or from the NCWRC web site.

I went to the animal shelter and asked the superintendent if they get many calls for this kind of thing. He was more than happy to receive my card telling me that they get calls all the time and he has no one to refer them to. Same goes at the Agriculture Extension office. They had no idea who to refer farmers to when they had a problem.
My conclusion, after all the evidence that I've seen and investigated, is that when it comes to Wildlife Damage Control in Wayne County,... I'm it!

I believe most post and "help" to get publicity, look smart, and other hidden motives lol. Sorry, thats just my take on it. Or i could lie to ya for better publicity lol.
Either way, however, there are some really good folks on here who are giving out good information that is useful. So i suppose everyone wins. The outcome - Who knows??

Another reason I post is to brag about the big fish, put my manliness on display for the ladies, and be the poster boy for humility, cleanliness and the effects of having good thoughts.

I must answer your question with a few questions.
First, how did you learn to trap? Spend alot of time re-inventing the wheel?
Second, do you make all your own traps? Do you buy traps and lures from people who know how to do these things?

The best way for any trade or idea to be passed on and built upon is to,

In my experience, not just trapping but everything else I have done in my life. I have found that learning from others successes and failures has put me farther ahead in everything I do. I don't have to spend my very precious days figureing out how some things should be done. I spend my time (which none of us have an endless supply of) learning what others have done and to improve upon them, or just use their techniques because they work.

The info I give is worth what ya paid for it. However, if I give wrong info out it can hurt us all by giving (to some) a sensitive topic another black eye. Maybe by teaching the bob and weave I can help somebody avoid the black eye.
