Bird Control

Birds are an important part of our natural environment. As predators, they feed on insects, rodents, worms, fish and countless other animals. Game birds, song birds, hawks and other bird species contribute to outdoor recreation and the overall enjoyment of nature.

Because of these contributions, birds are afforded considerable protection by laws, regulations and public sentiment. Public relations are an integral part of any bird management project and Critter Control will educate our clients and the public why a particular bird control program or method is necessary.

The three birds that most often become pests in the United States in urban areas are pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows. If you have ever tried to get rid of pigeons, you know just how difficult pigeon control can be.  Other birds, from hawks to swallows, may occasionally cause unexpected and unusual pest problems. When blackbirds and crows roost in suburban areas they become pests. Woodpeckers may peck holes into house siding looking for insects and to make nest cavities. Seagulls can feed at food plants, and they roost and nest on large flat roofs with crushed stone.

Critter Control has extensive experience in geese control and removal, pigeon control and removal, sparrow control and removal and more. We can get rid of birds and repair bird damage, and we know how to get rid of pigeons, sparrows, starlings or other pest birds in a manner that will keep them from coming back. We use humane practices, and can handle trapping and relocation of sparrows, pigeons, geese or other bird pests.
Common pest bird situations include:

  • Feeding on agricultural products

  • Roosting or nesting around human habitations

  • Destroying vegetation and contaminating foods

  • Noise, droppings, odor and feathers

  • Diseases or ectoparasites affecting man including histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis

  • Unpleasant or hazardous working conditions

The best bird control approaches emphasize deterrents, exclusion or modification of buildings.  Critter Control’s knowledgeable technicians have bird-proofing and bird control methods for any nuisance bird situation - especially to get rid of birds that congregate on municipal and commercial buildings.  For more information, please contact us at 1-800-CRITTER.

Inspection for Birds

Every bird removal begins with a thorough inspection of the area of concern. Critter Control Wildlife Technicians first aim to discern the specific species causing issues for the homeowner, and whether they are federally protected. Wildlife Technicians use their knowledge of bird nests, visual identification, auditory calls, and bird behavior to identify the species in question. Their expertise in avian ecology informs them of the subsequent steps to solve the problem and prevent reoccurrence.

Bird Removal and Control

After identifying the bird species, we may start by physically removing the species in question. In rescue situations, such as chimneys or basements, birds can be released on-site if the entrance has been secured properly. Occasionally, live traps will be used, especially if flocks of birds are involved. For persistent birds and larger flocks, several advanced techniques may be applied simultaneously including spikes, mylar tape, scare tactics, and more. 

The most effective method of bird control is prevention and exclusion. 

Bird Exclusion and Prevention

Once the bird or nest has been successfully removed, Critter Control wildlife technicians will seal openings and apply caps on vents or chimneys where necessary. If a bird has occupied the area, Critter control agents will clean any bird messes and apply sanitization agents to ensure the safety of the home. 

For exterior areas such as roofs and trees, any combination of habitat modification, exclusion architecture, and repellents. The primary objective is to make the property unsuitable or unattractive to birds. We can also provide suggestions to maintain the property so birds do not continue to be problematic.
