We are going to discuss the new Bird Management Manual that the National Pest Control Association has put together for its members and those of you in the bird management business who would like to have such a manual. It covers bird management from the standpoint of people working under the rules and regulations of bird control in North America. It deals with the laws of the North American Treaty, the different state regulations, and those local and regional regulations that we are aware of. The manual is a basic working tool designed to help persons trying to determine if bird management is something to be included in service activities, helping them to make decisions on that additional service and giving them a good bit of initial guidance on how to provide those services. It assists in many ways in understanding the materials, tools, and devices that are presently available and appropriately registered (in the case of pesticides) for bird management. It is in a 3·ring binder put together in that format so that we can remove things that no longer are appropriate and can add new items that come to the industry and the bird management area. We had hoped that you would be able to use it both as a reference manual and as a training tool.
