Sometimes, birds make their way into buildings, where they can become a nuisance due to loud noises, structural damage, and messes. Birds are an important part of our natural environment, playing a key role in seed dispersal, plant pollination, and even pest removal. In the United States alone, there are 1,100 avian species. Birds are afforded considerable protection by laws, regulations and public sentiment that controls what kind of bird control can be implemented.

In these cases, it’s important to know about your options while abiding by the federal, state, and local laws regarding bird removal. Some birds require different removal strategies, otherwise, the problem might worsen. Critter Control can humanely and legally solve your bird control problems.

Inspection for Birds

Every bird removal begins with a thorough inspection of the area of concern. Critter Control Wildlife Technicians first aim to discern the specific species causing issues for the homeowner, and whether they are federally protected. Wildlife Technicians use their knowledge of bird nests, visual identification, auditory calls, and bird behavior to identify the species in question. Their expertise in avian ecology informs them of the subsequent steps to solve the problem and prevent reoccurrence.

Bird Removal and Control

After identifying the bird species, we may start by physically removing the species in question. In rescue situations, such as chimneys or basements, birds can be released on-site if the entrance has been secured properly. Occasionally, live traps will be used, especially if flocks of birds are involved. For persistent birds and larger flocks, several advanced techniques may be applied simultaneously including spikes, mylar tape, scare tactics, and more. 

The most effective method of bird control is prevention and exclusion. 

Bird Exclusion and Prevention

Once the bird or nest has been successfully removed, Critter Control wildlife technicians will seal openings and apply caps on vents or chimneys where necessary. If a bird has occupied the area, Critter control agents will clean any bird messes and apply sanitization agents to ensure the safety of the home. 

For exterior areas such as roofs and trees, any combination of habitat modification, exclusion architecture, and repellents. The primary objective is to make the property unsuitable or unattractive to birds. We can also provide suggestions to maintain the property so birds do not continue to be problematic.

Excellent communications, execution and friendly. I highly recommend this company!
The Critter Control team went above and beyond to make sure that NO CRITTERS could get into my home. We thought we had conquered the problem, but we still heard squirrels getting in, so they returned to reassess and finish the job. They actually pulled up our deck boards and found that the critters were getting in because of a rotted board underneat the cantilever. They replaced the insulation, rotted boards, and put a metal sheeting over everything so NO squirrels or critters could chew their way in! If you need critter control - you need to contact them. They stand behind their work 100%.... Thank you Rodney & Team!! Great Job. Ellen R. Haslett, MI
