Abstract/Contents:Discusses the control of different species of animals, including racoons, bats, snakes, and wood peckers, that may become nuisances on golf courses. States the raccoons can be controlled by using traps. Notes that bats can fit through openings as small as 3/8 of an inch, and that all openings into a building must be sealed off to prevent a bat infestation. States that while snakes are an important part of the environment and can take care of other pests, if necessary, can be trapped using glue board. Explains that woodpeckers can be scared away by loud noises and will often leave if sheet metal is placed over areas where they have been drilling. Notes that woodpeckers are protected in many states, and the use of lethal traps often must be approved by a local government.
