A bird stuck in a vent or roosting in an attic can be very frustrating for a homeowner. While birds are beautiful in the wild where they belong, when they begin damaging property and creating messes, birds become pests. Luckily, professional wildlife removal technicians have a variety of techniques to remove bird pests and keep them out of the home for good.
Common bird pests are pigeons, crows, seagulls, swallows, and woodpeckers. These birds can make a nuisance out of themselves by building their nests inside and around houses or by flocking to areas where they can find food. Bird pests can leave droppings everywhere, create holes in walls, and bother people with loud noises or aggressive behavior. Birds may also spread diseases, such as toxoplasmosis, salmonella, and encephalitis.
Homeowners who find themselves with an infestation of bird pests can call a professional wildlife removal technician. These technicians have many techniques to remove the birds. A common way to remove birds from the home is trapping in humane cages. Bird pests can also be gotten rid of or prevented by a method known as exclusion. Exclusion involves sealing any openings by which birds enter the infested area or using netting over rafters, which are attractive nesting sites for birds. Other methods include repellents, spikes, and
predator decoys to frighten the birds. These methods keep the birds away without wounding them. Some technicians also offer repair services to help repair the damage left by the infestation.
While bird pests can be a huge annoyance for any homeowner, calling a professional quickly after an infestation is discovered cuts down on the amount of property damage the pests can cause. Since professional wildlife removers have a wide variety of humane techniques, people can rest assured that their bird pests can be removed without being harmed.
