Birds are an important part of our natural environment. As predators, they feed on insects, rodents, worms, fish and countless other animals. Game birds, song birds, hawks and other bird species contribute to outdoor recreation and the overall enjoyment of nature.
Because of these contributions, birds are afforded considerable protection by laws, regulations and public sentiment. Public relations are an integral part of any bird management project and Critter Control will educate our clients and the public why a particular bird control program or method is necessary.
The three birds that most often become pests in the United States in urban areas are pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows. If you have ever tried to get rid of pigeons, you know just how difficult pigeon control can be. Other birds, from hawks to swallows, may occasionally cause unexpected and unusual pest problems. When blackbirds and crows roost in suburban areas they become pests. Woodpeckers may peck holes into house siding looking for insects and to make nest cavities. Seagulls can feed at food plants, and they roost and nest on large flat roofs with crushed stone.
Critter Control has extensive experience in geese control and removal, pigeon control and removal, sparrow control and removal and more. We can get rid of birds and repair bird damage, and we know how to get rid of pigeons, sparrows, starlings or other pest birds in a manner that will keep them from coming back. We use humane practices, and can handle trapping and relocation of sparrows, pigeons, geese or other bird pests.
Common pest bird situations include:
- Feeding on agricultural products
- Roosting or nesting around human habitations
- Destroying vegetation and contaminating foods
- Noise, droppings, odor and feathers
- Diseases or ectoparasites affecting man including histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis
- Unpleasant or hazardous working conditions
The best bird control approaches emphasize deterrents, exclusion or modification of buildings.
