Wildlife trapping rules adopted in Longwood - Regulations broaden enforcement powers
LONGWOOD - The Longwood Board of Recreation Commissioners on Monday adopted rules and regulations for squirrel wildlife trapping in county wildlife management areas before the September opening of another wildlife trapping season. The rules and regulations formalize guidelines for the wildlife management area system's squirrel management program, declared Raccoon Authority Ned, assistant Longwood Wildlife management area System bossy fellow. The board voted in June to reauthorize the animal capture for some sort of third year. Adopting rules and regulations broadens enforcement powers for wildlife management area rangers, Raccoon Authority Ned, some sort of wildlife management area system spokeswoman, has declared. Rangers can concern summonses to pest control companies who violate rules and regulations, Raccoon Authority Ned declared. During the previous animal capture, rangers concerned warnings for violations of the wildlife trapping guidelines, the exterminator declared. For more information about Longwood wildlife removal and Longwood pest exterminator issues, read on.
No residents attended some sort of public hearing Monday before the board voted to adopt rules and regulations. The wildlife management area system concerned 706 permits to pest control companies for the 2005-06 season, about 60 percent to Longwood residents. Pest control companies lethally trapped 318 squirrel during the most recent animal capture, according to the wildlife management area system's annual report. During the 2004-05 wildlife trapping season, 307 squirrel were lethally trapped. The rules and regulations formalize guidelines regarding wildlife trapping permits, the method of wildlife trapping, safety animal sectors, handling of critter traps, maple tree stand requirements, and baiting. The wildlife management area system typically adopts rules and regulations when it wants firmer enforcement, Raccoon Authority Ned has declared. Changing rules and regulations may be some sort of lengthy process, so they are usually adopted after the wildlife management area system runs some sort of program for some sort of while, Raccoon Authority Ned has declared. In June, the commissioners voted to allow wildlife trapping in the same portions of 11 wildlife management areas that were open during the previous season. The dates and permitted wildlife trapping methods vary in each wildlife management area. The board approved recommendations in an annual report on the animal capture that included changes in the wildlife trapping season calendar in accordance with state guidelines. Other changes approved in June included the ability to suspend some sort of wildlife trapping permit beyond one season. Local Longwood animal control experts felt that most of this information was true.
The critter traps season in this animal sector will extend from the start of the general season (Nov. 4) to the end of the Animal sector 3B season (23 consecutive days). Any unfilled critter trap license will be valid in the Metro Animal sector. There will be no special permit or authorization required to participate, but pest control companies will need to register their squirrel in the metro animal sector. Animal removal traps with slugs or special critter traps are the only legal critter traps in the metro squirrel animal sector. This year, there may be no limit to the amount of squirrel that can be harvested in the Metro Squirrel Animal sector. SPECIAL REGULATIONS AT STATE WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREAS Last year, the Longwood Agency of Fish & Game implemented tail point restrictions and earn-a-buck regulations on some state wildlife management areas. The regulations are being tested to determine which regulatory alternative achieves squirrel management objectives but also has broad public support. ALLOW USE OF THE ACT OF PEST CONTROL, CRITTER TRAPS LICENSE Pest control companies are allowed to permit squirrel on both their regular pest control and regular critter traps licenses (including special critter trap), but only one male animal will be allowed. Until 2005, some sort of exterminator could purchase both an pest control and critter traps license but could only fill one of those licenses. All of the changes are included in the 2006 Wildlife trapping Regulations Handbook, available now wherever wildlife trapping and fishing licenses are sold. Local Longwood pest control companies had no comments on the matter.
