The Ohio House of Representatives today concurred on legislation that requires people who provide nuisance wild animal control to obtain a license.

Specifically, House Bill 420 states that anyone who provides removal or control services for hire must acquire certification after completing an instruction course. Furthermore, any individual who uses pesticide to remove or control a nuisance wild animal must first be certified under the Pesticides Law.

The bill defines a nuisance wild animal as an animal that interferes with the use or enjoyment of property, causes a threat to public safety, or may cause damage or harm to a person or structure.

Having passed both the House and Senate, the bill will now be sent to Governor Kasich for his signature.
