Personal Author N/A
Abstract This synthesis provides direct wildlife population control techniques for reducing wildlife collisions with aircraft. This report synthesizes the various direct wildlife population control techniques available to airport personnel and their relative effectiveness. In addition, the ecological foundation of wildlife population control and management is also summarized. A literature review and survey of individuals involved in wildlife management at airports was conducted. The 15 airports surveyed (100% response rate) were representative of a broad range of biological habitats and conditions across the United States from all nine FAA regions. These airports were surveyed to obtain quantitative and qualitative information on existing wildlife population control methods and integrated management approaches currently used in the United States and their perceived effectiveness.
