Job Description

Full Time:
Yes
Number of Workers Requested:
6
Job Duties:
Prairie dog trapping. It is seasonal work since we can't have traps out while we are grazing and or harvesting the fields during the summer growing season. Traps need to be placed over the holes which are located in perimeter and within the field boundaries. Prairie dog networks are extensive underground, if traps are placed over all holes in the community they will exit though holes without traps and trapping will be ineffective. Prairie dogs are a major issue in organic production and extremely difficult to control. The best method we have found is trapping but it requires daily observation, setting, and resetting of traps. Late fall through early spring we have had excellent luck in controlling the population.
