We don’t usually think of birds as a nuisance, but if you have birds that have flown into your home or are nesting or roosting on your house or property, they can become a serious problem that requires bird control. While spring birds bring music and color to our yards, they can also create a racket and a mess. Flocks of birds create a hazard with their droppings, cause damage to your roof and siding, and can rob your trees of fruit.

How do you rid your property of birds that fly up into the air and then settle back down again? With over 100 offices throughout the U.S. and over 40 years of experience, Critter Control offers bird pest control solutions that are safe, humane, and effective.

Common Pest Bird Types

There are a handful of bird species that are commonly considered nuisances:

  • European Starlings gather in large flocks. Not only do starlings create noise and messes, but they also compete with native birds for nesting sites and food.
  • Canada Geese are large birds that can land in large numbers and rest before continuing with their migration. Unfortunately, their droppings create a mess, and they are aggressive.
  • Pigeons are common nuisance birds in more urban areas where they roost in large numbers on buildings.
  • House Sparrows are small but build nests in your vents and eaves and take over bird feeders.
  • Crows are intelligent birds with a loud call. Once they find a consistent food source, they call in their friends.

Critter Control has the experience and expertise to effectively and humanely solve bird control issues for every type of bird.

Nuisance Bird Inspections

Every bird control service begins with an inspection of the area of concern. Critter Control’s first task is to identify the specific bird species using their knowledge of visual identification, bird nests, auditory calls, and behavior. Your wildlife specialist will engineer a plan to solve the problem and prevent any recurrence based on species, federal, state, or local laws, and the severity of the infestation.

During your inspection, Critter Control will thoroughly examine areas such as your roof, chimney, vents, decks, garages, soffits, and sheds, as well as the conditions around your home that may have attracted the birds to your property.

Bird Removal and Control

We consider the safety and well-being of you, your family, your pets, and the birds when doing removal. Unless birds are trapped in a vent or your basement, they are difficult to capture and remove. Because they take flight and land again, the best bird control solution is to make the area less attractive to the birds by deterring them from landing, roosting, or nesting.

Critter Control’s wildlife specialists are expertly trained and can make informed decisions about methods and materials that are right for your specific situation.

Once the birds have been dispersed, Critter Control will clean the affected area and apply sanitizing agents to ensure any health and safety risks to you and your family are eliminated.

Commercial Bird Control Services

In commercial circumstances, birds roosting on rooftops, behind neon signs, and nesting in warehouses pose health hazards, compliance and financial risks, and loss of reputation. For commercial properties, an overall bird control management plan that includes removal, regularly scheduled monitoring, and maintenance is essential.

Bird Proofing, Exclusion, and Prevention

The strategy for bird-proofing, exclusion, and prevention is to make the space the birds are occupying difficult to access and make the surrounding environment less attractive to them.

For areas outside of your home or business, such as roofs, soffits, and trees, tactics can include sealing gaps, adding mesh and caps to chimneys and vents, and installing spikes to keep birds from roosting and nesting. Reflective objects, decoys of predators, and auditory deterrents can be placed in and around your trees.

Critter Control might also recommend habitat modification techniques, such as removing food, water, and shelter from your property. Removing bird feeders, trimming trees and bushes, and netting fruit trees are a few examples.
