The county of Dorset is located in the south of England and its coastline forms part of the Jurassic coastline with Devon. It is an area with no motorways and contains stunning scenery and award winning beaches. It is a very popular area for tourism as it is full of historical interest from many periods including the Roman and Saxon eras. The eastern part of the county contains the larger towns of Verwood, Ferndown, West Moors, Wimborne, Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole.

Dorset still retains a lot of the lowland heath and woodland and is rich in wildlife of many native and migrant species that enjoy the mild climate.

Since the 1970s populations have quadrupled and large amounts of land have been taken for housing but Dorset still retains its urban feel with the main industry being Agriculture.

With all this wildlife around it is only natural that conflict between man and nature will occur and depending on the location, how often it will happen. In mainly rural areas, rodents such as Mice and Rats will follow a seasonal pattern and live apart from human interference and find enough food and suitable lodging in the local landscape. The same can be said for Squirrels, Rabbits, Moles and Birds, but it is when circumstances change that they may seek refuge in properties. It could be seasonal and cold weather is the cause, or flooding of a local river drives them off the land in search of dryer areas, or maybe development removes cover like trees or hedges or even a large fire and the habitat cannot sustain them any longer, this is when conflict will occur and some form of pest control or pest prevention will be required.

In urban areas such as larger towns there maybe established populations of rodents living largely unnoticed in buildings or drains and problems arise when numbers grow and damage is caused to infrastructure or Mice and Rats are suddenly seen on a regular basis. Squirrels are very good at setting up home in lofts and roof voids without being seen, but the occupants of the property soon become aware of the uninvited guests at very early or late times of the day or notice a large hole chewed to gain access, time to think of pest removal!

Wasps and birds living in a rural environment can live in harmony with man if certain lines are not crossed, occasional visits by either for food, can be tolerated but if a visit becomes permanent then trouble is sure to follow. In urban areas there are not a lot of choices for nesting as trees or bushes could be far and few between, so suitable properties are used. When Wasps come into close contact with man, some form of Wasp control or Wasp removal will be required.

Moles in rural environments may spend their time in areas that do not affect man, but if conditions change they will construct new tunnels that will directly cause conflict. It is the same in urban areas if building encroaches on previously safe areas for Moles. The lure of a lush lawn or playing field, rich with worms, is hard to resist, to alleviate the problem Mole removal or Mole control will be required.

Rabbits can be more of a problem in rural areas due to larger numbers and damage caused can be quite dramatic. In urban areas, it will normally be properties that border onto open land that will suffer more, especially if there is a garden full of plants and shrubs available or a good sized lawn.

Foxes will thrive in both rural and urban environments and will continue to do so as they can be very adaptable.

If the correct pest prevention or pest management measures are taken, then man can live in harmony with nature, but if not then the correct pest control or pest removal, will be needed to re-establish the balance.
