Washington D.C. Bird Control Experts

Washington, DC, the capital of the United States, is home to many iconic monuments and buildings. The capital building stands as a symbol of democracy for all Americans and it's important that we protect these historical sites from birds who would use these buildings as roosting or nesting areas, causing irreparable damage.

While not commonly seen at bird feeders, this bird can often be heard singing, and are widely believed to have the most beautiful song of all North American birds. 

The Washington D.C. Bird is the Wood Thrush, a.k.a. Hylocichla Mustelina


In areas with dense populations, bird control will always be an issue. there are so many buildings with ledges and overhangs that offer them shelter and food and water sources that can be found if even just one building has an open dumpster. Not to mention the lack of predators or competition that they would find if they went back into their natural environment. The Potomac River, bordering the southern part of the city, also draws in more pest birds, since fish are a main staple among sea birds, the biggest pest of them being the seagull.


Many of the historical government buildings in this city are at risk for damage and infestation due to pigeons. A bird control company with prior experience removing them from these types of environments is required to ensure that any building they service will be safe, clean, and free from pest birds without damaging the building exterior.

Why Bird Control Is Necessary

If you see any birds on your roof, it is crucial to get them out before their numbers increase from 3 to 30. If the birds are in warehouses or large commercial buildings--which most often don't have actual predators or competition for these creatures --then this problem will only worsen over time and become more difficult to fix later down the line.


Birds are a common pest that will continue to grow in numbers until they're dealt with. If you notice one or two birds near your home, it is important to act quickly before the nest attracts more of them and begins affecting other aspects of life such as our property value.


With their droppings, noise and potential disease carriers, pigeons can be a nuisance to have around. Many of us have had to deal with a pesky bird at some point. The reason for this is that the birds are opportunists and they will take advantage if given an opportunity. Thankfully, there's help! Bird control companies exist which provide services such as installing nets over ledges or other spots where these winged creatures like to perch; most importantly though, these knowledgeable technicians enable you and others in your area peace of mind knowing their property is safe from harm by tricky little pests.

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.
