Living with Wildlife

As there are more and more humans, with our buildings and infrastructure and claims on resources, there are fewer places for wildlife to exist in peace, and more opportunities for conflict. We encourage you to look for ways to minimize your impact on wildlife, enhance the habitat around your home, and when conflicts do arise, seek the most humane ways to mitigate them. We are here to help!

See the suggestions below for recommendations for some of the most common conflicts. If your question isn’t answered, call BEEC at 257-5785, or email .

The Humane Society of the United States is a first stop when shopping for answers to wildlife problems.
