Bird control and removal in spring when they are looking to nest will help prevent future, larger problems down the road. Three of the most common nuisance birds in our area: starlings, pigeons and house sparrows, which all happen to be non-native and invasive. Birds can be a real problem for homeowners when they try to build their nests, they will invade chimneys, roofs and can even get into ventilation systems, and nests can become a fire hazard if they are in your dryer vents. Not only are birds an annoyance by being noisy and messy, they can carry diseases and parasites and their droppings can lead to damage if not cleaned up. Our technicians can also install bird deterrents and do prevention services to keep birds from nesting in your home.
Pigeon Sparrow Starling
Pigeons are an invasive, destructive species that have no fear of humans. They are sociable birds that tend to stay in flocks and are common in cities because of access to food and water. They are dirty birds that carry diseases and parasites and cause lots of damage with their acidic droppings. A common trait of pigeons is that they can always find their way back home, so they are not an easy bird to get rid of on your own.
Starlings are an invasive, noisy, destructive bird. They compete with native birds for nesting places and are aggressive with food. They push out native cavity nesters like bluebirds, owls, and woodpeckers. Large flocks can damage crops, and their waste can spread invasive seeds and transmit disease.
