Birds are commonly seen feeding in the park or perching on a power line. When large numbers of birds collect, they can quickly create problems. Birds can be noisy and roosting habits and their frequent defecation may cause damage to structures and their contents. Starlings and pigeons are the two most common problem species in buildings. Starlings may cause nesting debris problems in warehouses, and pigeons have been known to carry multiple diseases that are dangerous to human beings. They have also been proven to carry several ectoparasites that are dangerous to people and pets.
Pigeon waste can accumulate in massive quantities in a short period of time. This may occur in building overhangs, rooftops, signs, highway overpasses, bridges, and barns. Generally, birds are attracted to a food source or nesting cover. If you believe this may be the case, call us immediately, as our wildlife biologists are experienced bird removal and bird control professionals. Exclusion is the best method of control for bird problems. Bird netting, bird spikes, and roosting deterrents are effective methods. Although they may roost nearby, they will generally leave the area if the food source or nesting cover is removed or made unavailable.
If you have a bird problem, our bird removal and bird control experts can handle your situation in the following ways:
- Trapping /Removal – Bird removal will be conducted through trapping using existing behavior patterns.
- Sanitary Cleanup – All areas will be treated with a sterilizing agent, and in some cases, a pesticide if the presence of ectoparasites is identified. Our certified wildlife biologists understand the life cycles of the bacteria and ectoparasites associated with the species and will properly protect your property. Damaged goods and all debris associated with the birds will be removed for disposal.
- Exclusion/ Repair – Bird control will be conducted using bird spikes, bird netting, bird wire, bird repellants, or bird deterrents. Any structural contamination or damaged or contaminated insulation will be repaired by Forest and Wildlife’s licensed building contractors (SCDLLR).
Our biologists and technicians are experts in bird ecology, bird removal, bird control, and the life cycles of bacteria, ectoparasites and residual pest species associated with bird colonies. We are the experts in this field, as we have designed our own hanger system and have installed just short of 1.5 million square feet of bird netting on over 140 structures, over 751,000 linear feet of bird wire and over 200,000 feet of bird spikes. Our biologists have sanitized over 785,000 square feet of contaminated areas.
