Birds are a lovely part of the natural environment. However, they certainly do not belong inside a home. Sadly, some birds make their way indoors, creating nests in the attic or rafters overhead. These birds then spread disease, drop their food and feces everywhere, and generally cause undue stress. Your best option is to call for professional control services. You’ll want someone who can safely and humanely remove any birds in your home quickly.
Three well-known birds are considered pests in the United States: pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows. If you’ve ever attempted to rid your home of pigeons, you know how difficult the task at hand truly is. Other birds, such as swallows, occasionally enter homes, though less often.
These birds, once inside, can cause damage. Some birds will peck holes in your siding, make nest cavities, and feed on indoor plants. Some can spread disease and illness to your family. Damaging situations that require bird control services include:
- When birds are feeding on agricultural products
- Roosting or nesting near/inside a home
- Destroying vegetation or contaminating food
- Noise, droppings, feathers, and odd smells indoors
- Disease or parasites that affect humans
- Unpleasant working conditions
Proofing Your Home
If you notice a bird problem indoors, the first step is to remove the problem. The second phase is to proof your entire home to prevent further infestations. Controlling birds is an arduous task – sometimes impossible. Their high rate of mobility and nesting habits make them a challenge.
The secret to controlling birds is to deny them a spot to rest or nest. Deterrents and modifications to your structure are humane methods to prevent roosting birds.
