Wildlife Control Operators and Charity
With the holidays fast approaching, (how many days till Christmas?), it is time for wildlife control operators (WCO) to think about giving back. WCOs, like most business owners, have plenty of options to help their favorite cause. They can give money, volunteer their time, assist in advertising, or raising money.
As good as these options for giving are, I suggest that WCOs consider a different approach. I think WCOs should contribute their wildlife control skills to an organization or person in need. Your contribution can be as simple as installing a chimney cap or vent screen to as complex as a bird or bat exclusion.
Whether your contribution is preventative or corrective, the economically disadvantaged need your expertise to restore their dignity and protect their property from wildlife damage. I hope you consider it this holiday season.
