Seminars abound for helping you learn to deal with difficult people, but few are readily available when the offending creature is a wild animal or insect. Our chapter is filling in that gap this month with a presentation on nuisance creatures in the facility environment and how best to deal with them.

Canada goose attack leaves cyclist Kerry Surman with ...

It's just a harmless goose...or is it? Canada geese are ubiquitous in our area, but they have been known to attack and injure people when protecting their nests and young.

Rodents are a common pest in buildings, but did you know that bedbug infestations can occur outside of lodging places like hotels?

Gulls too have a reputation for becoming aggressive when food is at stake, and they and the rest of the bird community have a tendency to leave undesirable evidence of their presence everywhere they congregate.

Bats provide a welcome insect patrol service, but they are sometimes misguided in where they try to roost, and as protected species, must be handled properly.

Recommendation | Virulent Word of Mouse

Learn the best approach to these unwelcome guests and others from our presenters. Bill Paape from the City of Green Bay comes to us with years of experience in problem rodent and insect infestations. For the other creatures on the list, we will hear from the expert staff at the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary.

If you have a critter problem, join us and learn what to do. If you don't, join us anyway and learn how to prevent one. As a bonus, the knowledge you gain here could come in handy at home...sort of like killing two birds with one stone (all puns intended).
