MONTEREY COUNTY — Humane Wildlife Control Inc., based in Monterey County, has received an award from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation for its leadership in reducing pesticide use via Integrated Pest Management. The company uses live-trapping, one-way exits and biological control to remove and exclude rodents, rather than using rodenticides for structural rodent and wildlife management. According to the co-founder, the company’s non-chemical methods are effective long-term and prevent re-infestation.
