Market Opportunity

As lethal trapping and harvesting methods become increasing unacceptable to the environmentally friendly public, humane wildlife control industry is growing. The Wall Street Journal reports that hundreds of millions of dollars are spent annually on nuisance wildlife control. The opportunity for success is already there. It is just waiting for you to grab it. Wildlife Control is a recession proof business. Animals don't realize the economy is tough. Homeowners in times of recession retreat to their castle and spend less on vacations and luxury items. They protect their main investment, their home. When animals threaten that investment they must take care of the problem.

"The Economic damage in the U.S. from all forms of wildlife damage is conservatively estimated to be about $22 billon" - National Wildlife Management Professional Association

"Urban expansion is also encroaching on wildlife habitats everywhere. Increasingly people live and work in close proximity to wild animals whose native habitats have been lost or broken up. Many animals—from mice and cockroaches to pigeons and squirrels—have adapted to city life, taking advantage of abundant food and warmer temperatures." - National Geographic

"Humans are helping these animals evolve and are pressuring them to survive our environments. And it turns out that raccoons are just these perfect little urban warriors" - Suzanne MacDonald, York University

"A lion might be the king of the jungle, but in the urban jungle, it's all about the raccoon." -National Geographic

"Raccoon populations in some cities are roughly 150 per square kilometre Raccoons use up to 20 den sites at a time Raccoon territories average around three square blocks. They prefer backyards to parks." - CBC "The Nature of Things with David Suzuki"

"Some estimate about 100 raccoons per square kilometre, but that's probably a bit low. Contrary to popular belief, raccoons aren't lonesome animals, and if you think you have one, you probably have 10. "There are way more of them than you think," - Suzanne MacDonald, York University

"Raccoons have no predators, except cars. But through studying the creatures, she has learned that raccoons are smart enough to rarely cross major roadways and mostly spend their whole lives in their (our) neighbourhoods. They're using fences as highways, and they're all on the highway at the same time," - Suzanne MacDonald, York University

"Male and female rats can have sex 20 times a day and can potentially produce 15,000 offspring a year." - National Geographic
