Why Bird Control Is Necessary

Birds might seem like wonderful additions to any garden or yard until the pest birds cause bird feeders to start spilling over with seed every morning and before long, all your carefully tended plants are being eaten by hungry birds that never leave because they know they can get all their food from you. Keep these pests away by eliminating food sources: toss out old seed husks; clean up spilled seeds on sidewalks where pigeons congregate; cover windowsills so no droppings fall into the gap in your windows. Preventing birds from developing bad behaviors, to begin with, is the best way to handle a bird infestation.


Birds leave behind their proverbial "calling card" in the form of droppings. These little packages contain many diseases and can even corrode surfaces when left to sit on them alone, so you should be mindful if a bird starts making its home near your building or other property. It's essential that you call professionals who specialize this field as soon as possible for help! If these droppings are disturbed by rain, a gust of wind, or other animals, it can send said diseases through the air for far distances. No matter where the bird problem is present, for yours and others safety and health it is important to address the issue quickly.


Even better than that--eliminate the problem before it even happens, with a few tips we have outlined below, as well as a list of other effects bird infestations may cause. 

Common Effects of Pest Bird Infestations

  • Bird droppings can cause the breakout of several diseases and the multiplication of parasites like mealworms, chicken mites, and even bed bugs.


  • Large populations of birds can be noisy, especially at night when they are right on your roof.


  • Nests can clog your drains and that will lead to a big problem with water drainage.


  • Food contamination is highly likely if they are around food processing outfits or eateries.


  • Pest bird presence can lead to penalties from public health officers.


  • Bird droppings on sidewalks can result in slips when they are mistakenly stepped upon.


  • Bird droppings can stain, corrode, and cause other damages to the building materials.

Avoid Developing Bird Infestations Around Your Home or Building
  • Clean your gutters and eliminate other forms of standing water in your areas. Availability of water to drink can attract them.


  • Avoid all kinds of projections like ledges around your wall. Birds can easily roost on them.


  • Trim all trees and prune them very regularly. The more leaves they have the more they can provide shelter for birds.


  • Cover all trash cans, as they can attract not only pest birds like pigeons but other unwanted wildlife as well.


  • Clean all outdoor surroundings consistently. If your pet mistakenly upsets your trash can, quickly clean it up as some of the food remnants can attract birds, and once they know where the food is, they stay there.


  • Avoid feeding pest birds at all costs, as it is a form of encouragement for them to stay even longer. This includes bird feeders that arent weight controlled.


  • Seal all openings through which small birds can enter your building.


  • Ensure all vent, loft, and eave openings are permanently blocked.


  • Install door strips on any exterior doors, to prevent the entrance of all birds.
