How to Get a Bird Out of a Warehouse

Birds fly into warehouses, disturb people, and can't find their way back out. They might even make nests in the warehouse, which poses a fire hazard problem and their nests and droppings spread diseases like Salmonella.

So, how do you get a bird out of a warehouse? This article will present a few bird control solutions.

The first solution is the homemade option. First, make a clear exit path for the bird to get out. Remove any obstacles that would block its path to the nearest exit.

Next, shut off all light sources except a light at the exit you want the bird to leave through. Turn off all other lights and make the exit light source the one thing the bird can see. At this point, wait. In complete darkness, the bird should make its way to the light of the exit and find its way out. You can also try coaxing it out towards the exit with a large bedsheet.

The next option is to hire a live capture bird control service. Bird control specialists can coax a bird out of your building themselves. They can also solve any bird infestation issues in the area, which is often just as important as removing the bird inside the warehouse. Birds can keep coming in without proper outside deterrence.

AviAway offers professional bird control services throughout the United States, including live capture bird removal. We use only humane methods to excavate birds from warehouses and other buildings.

Often, if a bird enters a warehouse, this is only a symptom of a more extensive bird infestation outside. It makes sense to hire a live capture bird removal service once, but not if the problem persists. For this reason, we recommend installing bird deterrence methods to keep birds from coming back into the warehouse in addition to getting them out the first time.

There are many options when it comes to bird deterrence. Bird netting is often the first line of defense. Bird netting excludes birds with close to 100% effectiveness and is used to block off areas birds would otherwise fly into. It can be used in warehouse rafters to prevent birds from flying in and nesting in the building.

Bird spikes are another bird control option for warehouses. Birds tend to perch and congregate on ledges, railings, and other surfaces. Bird spikes can prevent birds from landing on these surfaces and thus keep them away from buildings. These are especially effective if birds land on a warehouse roof and enter through a docking bay.

Electric shock tracks can also stop birds from perching on surfaces. Shock tracks give birds a small electric shock when they try to land, dissuading them from staying on that surface. Birds soon find somewhere else to land. Neither bird spikes nor electric shock tracks hurt the birds but rather keep them from landing on surfaces.

In summary, the best ways to remove a bird from a warehouse include coaxing them out by making an exit door the only light source or hiring a live capture removal service to remove the birds for you. If birds come into your warehouse often, we recommend installing bird deterrence methods like bird netting.
