It was an educational and highly enjoyable hour as Mike Mengak, a Certified Wildlife Biologist and the Wildlife Outreach Specialist at the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources at UGA, spoke about “Nuisance Wildlife” at our August 19th monthly meeting. He had lots of tips and ideas for discouraging nuisance wildlife from our property. He pointed out the many popular things that don’t work…. as he said, remember, there are no rules and wildlife can’t read anyway!
In addition to teaching at UGA, Mike trains and works with landowners and extension staff to help manage the damage that wildlife can do to our property. He has authored or co-authored over 95 publications in peer-refereed journals, proceedings, technical reports, and extension publications on a wide array of wildlife ecology, wildlife damage management, and natural history topics.
