Stop Killing Birds As A Form Of Pest Control

Porter and Blayne Reed have done an exceptional job identifying and documenting the potential threat of these two Coreid bugs to peas and possibly other legumes. White-lined Sphinx Caterpillars The caterpillar stage of the white-lined sphinx (Hyles lineata) has caught the attention of a number of folks north of Amarillo. Again, John Quillin sent a photo of the caterpillars feeding on weeds in a pasture and Robert Bowling e-mailed asking about them. I came across these caterpillars a couple of years ago while working on a potato project in Dallam County. These caterpillars were feeding on a specific weed along the edges of potato fields and in pastures. White-lined Spinx Moth Photo credit: Whitney Crenshaw, Colorado State University, The moth is commonly known as the hummingbird moth and the hawk moth and the caterpillars are known as hornworms.

This, in turn, sparks rapid reproduction among the survivors and leads to a spike in overall numbers. Essentially, those who employ extermination inadvertently increase the local bird population. Humane pigeon control company PiCAS (Pigeon Control Advisory Service) offers free education and bird control services yet continues to be ignored by lazy state and city officials. Rather than killing or relocating birds (which makes them another citys problem), PiCAS addresses the two key factors in controlling pigeon population: roosting and feeding zones.
