All the years I trapped, I never advertised in the Yellow Pages or , (of late) the internet.
I had a business card, I had a truck and I had a lot of traps.
Did I mention knowledge ?
There's a lot of blowhards that show up, with hired help out of the temp agency, with more more trapping skills than the man in the moon !
You don't need to be a 'real' trapper today...All you need is a web -site and people will hire you, because, well...you have a g d web site !
That's it ! You can google "how to trap" any animal or watch it on YOU TUBE and you're a g d expert !
And that my friends, is how you and I, get ran over by the big name, big corp animal control companies and the good ol' USDA !
All of which, if you can't already tell, I despise !
I think I've always been a fairly good trapper.
I've trained guys in 20 states to be just as good as I am.
I feel reputation can carry you only so far.
If I were to stay in wildlife control, today I would have a web-site and I would state how it is :
ARE YOU PAYING TOO MUCH FOR WILDLIFE REMOVAL !?
And I've have to hire help...help that I trained ! I'd have so much work, why I wouldn't have time to even talk to you . LOL
Why, I'd turn the world upside down.
