Can You See It?
Wildlife damage isn’t always obvious to those that aren’t trained in what to look for. But if you look carefully for elements that don’t fit, you can see the signs. Can you see it?
Consider the photo at the right. Look closely. Try to avoid reading the caption. What do you see? Can you see it?
One of the problems with modern life is we have lost the ability or should I say discipline to truly look at something. Too often our eyes simply glance from one spot to another in a very cursory manner without ever truly looking. Thus we often don’t see it. Now for most people, this isn’t a big deal. But for a wildlife control operator or pest control professional it can be devastating because if you miss the signs you miss out on helping your client in a timely manner.
