Control of Vertebrate Pests of Agricultural Crops.
Wingard, Robert G.; Studholme, Clinton R.
This agriculture extension service publication of Pennsylvania State University discusses the damage from and control of vertebrate pests. Specific discussions describe the habits, habitat, and various control measures for blackbirds and crows, deer, meadow and pine mice, European starlings, and woodchucks. Where confusion with non-harmful species might exist, the identification of the species is emphasized. Control methods described for each species range from hunting and poisoning to fencing and frightening. Black and white pictures are presented for most pest species. A table of suggested chemicals is also included. (MR)
