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.

APPEARANCE

House finches are similar in size to sparrows, measuring an average of five and a half inches in length. They have long brown tails and dull-colored bodies. Most adult males have red highlights on their heads. This reddish color is attributed to their diet, which includes lots of berries. Typically, the redder the male, the more successful it is at finding mates. Other species of finches may be yellow or purple.

DIET

Though it’s rare in the bird world, these pests are strictly vegetarians. While most birds feed their young meat for protein, finch diets consist of grains, seeds, and berries. They also forage on the ground for weeds such as nettles, dandelions, asters, and mistletoe.

HABITAT

Found all over the U.S., finches prefer city parks, backyards, and urban centers as nesting sites. They are also attracted to plains and fields with plenty of weeds. Since fruit-bearing trees are another favorite food source, house finches are considered agricultural pests.

TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

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.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

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.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

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.

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

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.
