When a bird tries to share your house with you, a professional bird removal service will know how to remove it without harm. We know how to keep them from returning and whether or not a particular bird species can be removed at all. Some bird species are protected and cannot be disturbed. As cute as they are, wild birds can carry and transmit as many as 60 parasites and diseases, including respiratory, pulmonary, nervous, digestive and even yeast infections, making them a health hazard.
There is also the matter of damage the birds can cause to your property. Their droppings are difficult to clean and can become a health hazard. They can quickly become a breeding ground for dangerous fungal diseases like histoplasmosis. Some bird species, like woodpeckers, peck into wood and stucco to catch bugs living inside or to nest in the side of the house, potentially damaging it.
All of our pest control technicians are registered and have years of field experience. They utilize humane methods when removing birds and keeping them from coming back. First, your property will be inspected for potential nesting sites. Any birds will then be safely removed if possible. Next, our technicians will engage in habitat modification to keep the birds away. This includes installing exclusion devices to annoy birds that try to come back to roost, as well as screening off potential nesting sites.
Our pest control technicians will also remove insulation, seal your property's roofline and gaps to prevent birds from sneaking in small holes. Our service also includes vacuuming any bird droppings to eliminate the risk of disease. Birds like to nest in insulation and smaller birds, like sparrows and starlings, can fit into holes just over an inch in size. Bird droppings can provide an environment that produces toxic fungus, posing a serious health hazard to you, your family and your customers.
Birds come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so identifying common bird species will give you an idea of what you are up against if you find one on your property. Some of the most common birds in America include the Northern Mockingbird, the Mourning Dove and the House Sparrow. Most birds build a nest each spring. Once the nest is complete and a mate is found, a pair of birds can produce young several times a year. Typically, smaller birds are herbivores and larger birds are carnivores. Smaller breeds tend to live 2-3 years on average.
Let our knowledgeable, registered technicians remove the birds safely and humanely from your property. Never try to remove an unwanted bird on your own; you could harm both the bird and yourself. We will work with you to develop a bird control plan that's right for you. Call us today to have your bird problem taken care of.
