Hi, everyone, Stephen Vantassel here living the wildlife for the Pest Geek podcast. Thanks for listening today. Hey, I wanted to talk about those of you who are inventors.
Yes, there are a lot of wildlife control operators who are tinkerers. They like to toy around with things and manipulate things to make things better. Their idea people, it’s one of the fascinating aspects of the wildlife control industry. I suspect it also occurs in the pest control industry. But you also have major corporations behind the production of new items in the pest control industry. So I think some of that sort of kind of tamped down some of that ingenuity. But on the wildlife control field, which I certainly know more about, we don’t have those multi-million up to billion-dollar companies to have, you know, trained engineers developing materials. So we’ve had to develop stuff on our own. And the challenge, of course, is, is that wildlife are complex creatures in the sense that they do things differently in different environments. And plus, the mobility that they have requires equipment and tools that often can’t be cookie-cutter in approach.
