Bird Control, Trapping & Removal Services

We can rid you of Bird problems safely and efficiently

One of the most prolific animals on earth, birds are vital contributors to various ecosystems around the world. However, some species cause substantial problems for homeowners, business owners, gardeners, and farmers alike. Besides taking up residence in houses and other buildings, birds are considered nuisances for their propensity to destroy harvestable crops such as fruits and nuts. Not all bird species require the same control techniques or cause the same magnitude and type of damage, so proper identification is essential to effective control.

APPEARANCE

Although species vary in size and color, birds typically have the same shape. Common features include two wings, two legs, and beaks that assist with food acquisition. Covered in feathers, birds are often seen flying through the air, nesting high in trees, and rummaging for food on the ground.

DIET

Different bird species favor different foodstuffs, though most avian diets are similar in overall content. For example, crows deplete apple harvests by leaving triangular damage holes on the crops, robins eat cherries and grapes, and flocks of the invasive European starling are particularly detrimental to yields of small fruits. Birds also eat seeds, insects, and worms, while predators like owls feed on small mammals and even other birds. Larger predatory birds feed on fish and snakes, as well.

HABITAT

Birds inhabit several different climates and regions, and many species migrate at the onset of cold weather. Species found in the western hemisphere regularly travel from North America to South America for the winter and then return as spring begins. Some species of birds prefer to live in close proximity to humans, while others keep their distance. Pigeons, house finches, and crows are often seen inside city limits, while eagles, herons, and woodpeckers are mostly found in wilder habitats.

TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

Favorable bird living conditions include prime nesting locations, cover from predators, abundance of food sources, and nearby water. As many residential areas offer most, if not all, of these features, birds frequently take up residence on private properties. House eaves, chimneys, gutters, and rooftops all serve as excellent nesting sites. It is rare for birds to enter buildings, and most avian home invasions occur when windows or doors are left open.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

In addition to crop destruction, birds damage property with their droppings. Their chirping and mating calls, which can start early and last through the day, are also considered bothersome. Some birds of prey such as hawks target small pets as food. Additionally, wood-boring birds like woodpeckers can cause extensive damage to buildings with their intense foraging techniques.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Various methods exist to deter birds from ruining crop productions. Farmers and gardeners can employ protective netting, which restricts unwanted bird pests’ access to crops. Frightening devices can be effective, as well. To inhibit bird activity around manmade structures, individuals can cover favorite roosting areas with spikes. Caution should be exercised in order to avoid legal repercussions as some species are protected under local, state, or federal laws.
