Is The USDA Wildlife Services Unfairly Competing With The Private Nuisance Wildlife Control Industry?

(Fort White) Many do not know it but as fedral and State Budgest are shrinking and every government agency is being asked to make deep budget cuts in staff and services provide a little known agency is not only growing but actually flourishing in these tough economic times.

Local business's are being shuttered down and government growing in a sector that even the agency states as a policy directive that it will not compete yet their actions speak volumes and putting more and m,ore local business's out of work and needing public assistance in some cases.

George Cera back in 2007 began trapping the iguana on Gasparilla Island for Boca Grande Charlotte County Florida. To his credit he trapped over 12000 iguanas and well documented as one of the top iguana trapping experts in the country.

Listen to Cody Baciouska who offers specialized wildlife and bird control to federal airports and now losing business to USDA Wildlife Services.

Join us in our grassroots efforts to stop USDA Wildlife Services from taking more work from the private sector. If State legislators need something to cut by all means look at the matching state fund expenses that can be cut by discontinuing doing business with USDA Wildlife Services.

Every state in the union can cut budget money by longer having to match federal funds for USDA Wildlife Services. Every governor in the US can find money by simply stop matching federal funds for wildlife control projects that can be done by local business. George Cera put it best when he had the contract he put the money back into the community. The new truck was never purchased from the local dealer and the hiring of USDA in the end has hurt the local economy in many ways!

From Bat Conservation International

Dear Members,

I'm sad to report that White-nose Syndrome has been confirmed in two additional states: Indiana and North Carolina.

Last week, I wrote to tell you the Geomyces destructans fungus that's linked to WNS was found in Indiana. Since then, lab tests have confirmed the WNS disease, not just the fungus, has reached Indiana.

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission announced yesterday that the disease has spread to their state as well. Bats found in an abandoned mine in Avery County and a cave in Grandfather Mountain State Park, both in western North Carolina, tested positive for White-nose Syndrome disease.

WNS or its associated fungus is now documented in 16 U.S. states and 2 Canadian provinces. You can view a map showing all confirmed WNS locations here. Mortality rates approaching 100 percent are reported at some of these sites.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we suspect Indiana and North Carolina are only the beginning of this year's emails reporting new states that face White-nose Syndrome. Over the next few months I'll be sending updates to BCI supporters as they come in — and hopefully a little good news, as well. Bat Conservation International and its partners, with help from friends like you, are searching tirelessly for solutions to this devastating disease.

WNS Fungus Spreads to Indiana

Subject: [SPAM][2.9] WNS Fungus Spreads to Indiana
To: <>

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources reports that a bat from Washington County tested positive for the fungus associated with White-nose Syndrome. Additional bats with signs of WNS were discovered during bat counts at other Indiana caves, as well. Indiana is now the 15th state to face this devastating disease or the fungus that's tied to it. This represents a significant spread into the upper Midwest.

Many states are conducting surveys at bat-hibernation sites this winter and the results are just beginning to appear. In addition to the discovery of the fungus, Geomyces destructions, in Indiana, Virginia has reported White-nose Syndrome in two additional counties, and Pennsylvania confirmed the disease in Lawrence County.

P.S. Researchers are working desperately to find a way to stop this devastating disease before it is too late. Bats need our help more than ever. Please support WNS research and other critical bat conservation programs now.
