Dealing with Wildlife Conflict in the Garden

Hello Wild Side Readers!

I’ve been getting A LOT of questions lately on critters around homes causing problems. I recently gave a few webinars on this topic. Below you will find my presentation slides from Hardin County’s ‘An Evening Affair’ webinar on Monday, June 22, 2020. I’ve also recorded the same presentation here, for the Master Gardener Horticulture Lunch and Learn Series, in case you’d like to watch it.

In addition to my presentation slides, you will find additional resources that I referenced during my presentation.

Websites, articles, and more:

Enjoy and good luck finding your level of coexistence with our backyard furry and feathered friends.

  1. Thank you for the info on the sparrow spooker. We tried the fishing line to prevent them making a nest in the boxes. That did work We had bluebirds and four babies and a sparrow attacked again and again and killed the male and babies. So I’ll take a picture of what my husband makes and hope the new babies and parents survive. Another parent took over very quickly.

    • Hi Chris! So sorry to hear you lost your bluebirds. Yes, please let me know if the sparrow spooker works for you. Success stories are always great to hear about.
