Signs a Swallow is on Your Property
Swallows are small birds common across the United States. During the winter, these birds migrate from North America to Central and South America. Their migration typically begins at the end of June or beginning of July. Swallows typically have red faces and blue and white feathers and enjoy living in fields, barns, and other man-made structures.
Dangers of Swallow Infestation
Once established indoors or on house exteriors, swallows build messy mud nests, attaching them to available walls or sills. Nests can ruin siding as well as pose health risks to homeowners as these spaces often host various infectious parasites such as ticks and mites. Likewise, swallows in homes or yards can spread harmful bacteria through their droppings.
Humane Swallow Removal & Control Strategies
Entry into property
It is common for swallows to use empty attics or sheds for nesting grounds, as these areas provide protection from predators and the weather. Breached attics and chimneys or broken window screens present opportunities for the pests to get indoors.
Trapping & Removal
Due to federal laws that safeguard migrating species, trapping swallows or removing their nests is illegal. Because these birds can pose potential dangers to homeowners, Trutech wildlife specialists are trained to carefully remove swallows from houses and yards. Homeowners struggling with infestations can contact Trutech for aid with trapping and prevention.
Prevention & Exclusion
As swallows migrate south for the winter, homeowners can deter them from returning the following season by barricading eaves and ledges with mesh or netting. This eliminates the flat, stable surfaces these pests need to build their nests and may prevent infestations. When protecting barns, attics, or sheds from swallows, check that all entry points and window screens are fastened shut.
