Coyote Control

It is difficult to completely eliminate coyotes and the damage they cause to livestock. Through careful observation of livestock, maintaining fences and the use of a good guard animal, you can effectively reduce the negative impacts of the coyote population.

When these management techniques are not enough the Agricultural Service Board will investigate incidents of predator kill or harassment and implement control as necessary.

The ASB has available:
1080 tablets (Sodium Monoflouroacetate)
M44 Sodium Cyanide Guns (These guns will only be installed by certified ASB employees.)

Beaver Control

In cases when a beaver dam is causing flooding that is negatively affecting agricultural land or County right-of-ways the ASB will remove the dam free of charge.  Please notify the County if you come across a culvert that is plugged by beavers.

Norway Rat Control

Every year the ASB receives 2-5 reports of rat sittings. Every report is investigated and to date there have been no positive sittings of Norway Rats within the County borders. We appreciate the public concern with these destructive pests and encourage any possible sittings to be reported.
