There's a war going on out there, and humans are losing ground'literally. The first book to look squarely at the subject, Backyard Battle Plan takes a stand on the fastest-growing threat to our gardens: animal damage. Ecological imbalance and overzealous protectionist policies have produced a skyrocketing population of problem animals. Deer alone number thirty times what they did a century ago. With animal-related property losses totaling $3 billion a year, America's summer backyard'suburban and urban'is under siege. But our romanticization of wildlife, argues Backyard Battle Plan, blinds us to our need for a balance of preservation and control, even elimination.A godsend to any gardener whose cherished crops are regularly destroyed, this complete A-to-Z guide defines the enemy: from beaver to problem birds and coyotes to woodchucks; their habitats and the diseases they carry; and control methods from fencing to poison to hunting. Complete with fascinating boxes and sidebars, this is an honest and long-overdue primer on an issue we dare not keep taboo.
