Consulting & Review

The Wildlife Management Activity Consulting & Review is a great way for landowners that currently have a Plateau Wildlife Management Plan to assess their current wildlife management activities to ensure compliance for a future Central Appraisal District (CAD) site inspection or annual report request. A Plateau biologist will visit with you on your property and document all of your current wildlife management activities. We will discuss your specific CAD’(s) requirements and answer any questions you may have about your activities and collecting documentation. We will also discuss current wildlife management activity improvements and/or future additional activities that address your needs, budget, and vision for your land.

For landowners seeking specific assistance with wildlife control, brush management planning & solutions, and native or invasive plant species, we provide a wide range of services to appeal to every landowner.


Imported Red Fire Ant Treatment and Control

Imported Red Fire Ants, an invasive species from South America, first arrived in the U.S. in the 1930s and have been wreaking havoc ever since. In addition to being a nuisance to humans, these pesky critters compete with birds for food sources and prey on young wildlife. Plateau’s Imported Red Fire Ant Treatment and Control uses GPS technology and aerial imagery to accurately locate treatment areas and eliminate fire ants with an effective, compliance-ready dual action insecticide treatment.
