March Seminar:
Repel Rats, Stymie Squirrels...Outwitting Pests

March 18, Sunday, 4:30pm • Wild Birds Unlimited, 2510 Willamette Street, Eugene OR 

Dan and Barbara will present a seminar offering ideas to help you repel, stymie, rout, discourage, and prevent rats, squirrels, and other pests from accessing food or causing damage around your feeding station...and home. 

In the United States, more than 81.1 million people feed birds and watch wildlife in their yards. Birdwatching and feeding is second only to gardening as the most popular hobby in the US. Feeding birds has so many positive effects for both people and birds that it would not be as popular as it is with millions of homeowners if it truly created problems with nuisance wildlife on a regular basis. 

Bird feeding has been a Eugene hobby of thousands of residents for easily 50-70 years, so it's not a new residential practice. When done responsibly, feeding birds does not attract rats, mice or other “pest” animals. At Wild Birds Unlimited, we have a number of options available to help you prevent rats and other pests from accessing bird feeders and bird food.

Join us as we discuss the many steps home-owners can consider to keep bird food from being reached by rats or other unwanted pests, from cages, domes, or baffles, to "hot" food, there are lots of options to help you! 

Pre-registration is REQUIRED. Call to pre-register -- we can fit 35 in chairs... 541-844-1788.

The very best way to know what events are occurring is to sign up to get our news and announcements... We won't overwhelm you as we only send 2-3 emails a month to announce new events as they are known.

Our usual leaders are Donna Albino & Rachael Friese and each destination is chosen early the week of the walk. All will be in the Eugene Springfield area, and the leaders send directions to each participant a day or so in advance. Participants then meet at the chosen destination for the bird walk...
