Bird Control in Overland Park, KS

Request Wildlife Control

You’ll likely notice signs of a bird’s nest along grooves in your roof, within your chimney, or in cracks in your siding.

Although you may be hesitant to call a wildlife control company in Overland Park, it’s essential to consider these services. Bird droppings can carry histoplasmosis, which can have negative effects on the lungs.

Legal Bird Control

Because of these contributions, birds are afforded considerable protection by laws, regulations and public sentiment that controls what kind of bird control can be implemented.

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 protects most birds, their eggs, and their nests from being killed or destroyed. Disturbing bird nests may be considered a federal crime carrying steep fines and possible prison sentences.

Chimney Swifts

Chimney Swift nest
Chimney swifts in attics are easily identifiable. Home residents may notice birds flying into vents or gaps. Nests assembled of twigs, sticks, grass, and other plant materials may be spotted in rafters. Additionally, birds leave accumulations of droppings, which are malodorous.

Both adult birds and chicks make a variety of sounds such as chirping, shuffling, and scratching. Finally, damage to attics, like insulation that’s been ripped from walls, can alert individuals to the presen

We often find chimney swifts inside chimneys. Homeowners usually hear the bird noises and mistake them for squirrels. While these nests aren’t a fire hazard, nests interrupt the airflow of smoke and carbon monoxide. Moreover, young birds may slip and fall out of chimneys into your home. Nests of baby birds inside chimneys will make audible rackets of chirping sounds as the hatchlings call to their mother.

Bird Nest in dryer vent

Vents are attractive locations for birds to build nests as they are off the ground, away from predators, and enclosed for protection from the elements. However, vents do come with their own set of dangers for young birds, which sometimes fall into the vent exhaust pipe, where they’re unable to escape.


Once pigeons have infested an area, it can be difficult to force them to leave. Homeowners often start with inexpensive methods such as setting up sprinklers or playing loud music and high-frequency sounds. However, unless these techniques are used often and at varied times of the day, pigeons will begin to ignore them.

This commercial property in Kansas City had a well established pigeon flock. The most common pigeons traps are the loft traps, funnel traps, and bob-type traps. All three of these traps are often baited to attract pigeons. Special formulas are available, though cracked corn will also work.

For this property, we used the bob-type traps. These large pigeon traps have a small access door to remove the trapped birds. The key feature is the free-swinging bars that allow birds to enter. When the bars fall back into place, the birds are kept inside.
