| February 16, 2012

Steven Vantassel  announces the publication of The Wildlife Damage Inspection Handbook: A guide to identifying vertebrate damage to structures, landscapes, and livestock, 3rd edition.

Written for pest and wildlife control professionals, Vantassel  has thoroughly revised and expanded this edition to provide more detailed information on wildlife and their damage. The book contains 180 letter-sized pages and is accented by more than 300 full-color photographs, along with drawings and black and white images.

The Wildlife Damage Inspection Handbook, 3rd edition is divided into two parts.

Part 1 contains 12 chapters which detail the theory and practice of inspection and provide strategies to identify animal sign such as feces, bones, eye-shine, predation, and much more.

Part 2 covers 25 of the most common nuisance wildlife species in the continental U.S. Each module reviews signs and symptoms essential in identifying their presence, including behavior, diet, reproduction, damage to structures and gardens. Extraneous information and excessive wordiness have been removed to enhance the usability of the book for quick identification in the field.

Copies can be purchased at Lulu.com, Amazon.com, and Wildlife Control Supplies. Dealer inquiries are welcomed. Contact the author at stephenvantassel@hotmail.com.
