Core Principles of Wildlife Control with Wildlife Species Information

WCO Training Manual

The NWCTP covers the fundamental information and skills needed to become a wildlife control operator (WCO). Unlike other training, we discuss wildlife damage management theory, safety (disease and injury), inspection, animal handling, euthanasia, carcass disposal, and laws. This training is accepted by by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources, Oklahoma, New York State, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee for licensing wildlife control professionals.

The NWCTP provides damage management information for an additional 29 species and animal groups that frequently cause conflicts with humans. The book covers alligators, armadillos, beavers, black bears, Canada geese, cormorants, coyotes, crows, deer, foxes, gulls, hawks, house mice, moles, muskrats, Norway rats, nutria, opossums, owls, pocket gophers, rabbits, venomous and non-venomous snakes, thirteen-lined ground squirrels and chipmunks, voles, vultures, wild pigs, woodchucks, and woodpeckers.
