For wildlife and rodent control operators

The BC SPCA has developed a series of reference sheets on best practices for wildlife and rodent control operators.

These documents clarify which methods are legal and illegal in B.C., and which of the legal methods are recommended for use by the BC SPCA. They also answer questions about humane pest control.
