Finch Removal Strategies
Finches, also referred to as house finches, are small songbirds native to many parts of the southwestern United States. The birds prefer to live in outdoor environments, but are known to create nests in attics and garages which offer excellent conditions for their nesting. Since house finches live off of various fruits and seeds, they can cause damage to these plants if you have them in your yard. They can also cause damage in the form of droppings and nesting scraps scattered on your property.

Dangers of Finch Infestation
While these birds are not aggressive, their consistent chirping may become annoying and attract more finches, thus increasing the noise level. Additionally, the pests can carry airborne diseases such as Mycobacterium avium complex. This tuberculosis-like illness causes abdominal pain and unhealthy weight loss and is especially dangerous to immunocompromised individuals.
Humane Finch Removal & Control Strategies
Entry into property
House finches are often found near residential areas. They prey on garden weeds and seeds found in birdfeeders. If the pests sense a steady food source, they’ll set up nests in trees or bushes, vents, light fixtures, and roof ledges.
Trapping & Removal
Native to America, finches are protected under federal law and it is illegal to harm them or disturb their nests. Also, due to the possible health risks of coming in direct contact with infected nests or droppings, it is best to employ trained professionals for safe removal of house finch infestations.
Prevention & Exclusion
Homeowners who do not wish to draw finches to their homes should be mindful of their landscaping choices and avoid fruit-, seed-, and nut-bearing trees. Eliminating sources of water and playing bird distress calls may also deter the pests from making residential yards their home.
