How Do I Identify A Bird Problem?

Birds can become a nuisance by causing property damage when building their nests, wrecking your garden for worms, grubs, and vegetation, and leaving behind unsightly and corrosive droppings all over your home and car. A bird problem can spiral quickly out of control.

Additionally, birds are known to spread many serious diseases, including West Nile virus which can cause severe harm to you and your family.

To determine if birds have become a problem at your home or business, look for signs of damage and a lot of bird droppings. Noticing nests and more activity with birds around your home are also signs that you may need bird control.

Why Could I Have A Bird Problem?

Since birds are looking for places to call home, they like wooded areas with a lot of trees to build their nests. Certain types of birds will make nests on exposed supports on porches and garages.

If your residence has awnings or openings into the safety of an attic, then a bird infestation may be imminent.

Why Should I Treat My Bird Problem Immediately?

bird removal should be handled by a professional bird removal technician because many bird species are protected, and they can spread many harmful diseases. It is highly recommended that you do not attempt to remove, trap or shoot problem birds yourself.

Prevention instead of removal is a good idea for homeowners, and there are many DIY tactics homeowners can employ (like hanging CDs from trees or using a decoy) which can help keep birds at bay. Make sure any holes or other ways into your home that birds will find are sealed up so that they cannot get inside.

Although it may be tempting to take the matter of bird removal into your own hands, it is not worth it. Local, professional bird removal technicians will humanely and efficiently tackle your bird problem.

  2. You hear lots of bird noises.
    Birds make noise. Many birds have beautiful calls that are nice to listen to. But constant loud bird noises indicate a problem. This is especially true if you hear the birds in your home.
  3. You notice too many droppings.
    Bird droppings happen occasionally, especially if you have feeders set up. If you notice an increase in droppings, though, you might have a bird problem. Often droppings will accumulate underneath nests, which is a good way to find out where the errant birds live.

How to Prevent Birds

Birds can be a great animal to have visited your yard. They are fun to watch, and many have beautiful songs. Birds can also help take care of an insect problem. However, when birds are nesting all over your property and staying in large numbers, that's when things get out of hand.

Preventing birds from invading your home and yard is a good idea. As a visitor, birds are a fun animal. As a flock, birds can be a major pest.

Why Do I Have Birds?

To prevent birds, you first have to know why they are coming into your yard. The good news is that there are only a few reasons why you may have a bird problem.

  1. There are a lot of insects, grubs, and worms around.
    Birds eat grubs, insects, and worms. If your yard provides these things, then it will have a lot of birds. Some bird species also eat berries, fruit, and corn. So, yards with gardens or fruit trees will also attract birds.
  2. Your home and outbuildings provide nesting places.
    Birds need a secure place to build their nests. They especially like trees, under the eaves of your house, and in porches. The more secure, secluded places there are for nests, the more birds will live on your property.
  3. There is a ready source of water.
    Birds, like all living things, need water to survive. Some people try to attract birds to their yards with birdbaths. However, you don't need a birdbath to attract birds. You just need an easy source of water. Pools, ponds, streams, and other standing water are all acceptable sources for birds.

How Do I Prevent Birds?

Preventing birds from gaining a foothold in your yard is the best solution. It will save you the damage and annoyance caused by lots of birds in your yard. Plus, you will not have to try and figure out how to remove the bird problem.

Bird prevention can be a little tricky. But the following tips may help.

  1. Install motion-activated sprinklers.
    Most bird species are prey. They are easily scared. So, motion-activated lights or sprinklers are a good way to keep birds off your lawn. They will turn on when the birds land, which should scare the birds away.
  2. Use a bird-repelling decoy.
    Traditional scarecrows are not as helpful in repelling birds. But owl decoys often work very well. Other bird-repelling decoys include kites and sonic cannons. Your local farm and home or home improvement store will likely have many options to choose from.
  3. Put wire meh over common bird nesting locations.
    Birds have likely been nesting in your yard for a long time. You should know where their most common nesting areas are located. Put a wire mesh over these locations to prevent this year's birds from building their nests. That should break the cycle.
  4. Contact a bird removal expert.
    Your best bet in preventing a bird problem is to contact a bird removal expert. They can help you with bird-repelling tactics. At GoLocal Pest Control, we will find you the top bird exterminators in your area.

It is estimated that there are between 9,000-10,000 bird species worldwide. There are 1107 bird species in the United States. A lot of those birds live in Alaska, 521 species to be exact.

That is where the similarities end though. Birds can come in a variety of colors, sizes, and even shapes. Take the most common birds in the United States, for example.

  1. Cardinal:
    Cardinals have a bright red body, a red bill, and a black face. They are usually between 8-9 inches.
  2. Pigeon:
    Pigeons are plump birds with small bills. They are grey with black stripes on their wings and a green head and neck.
  3. Chicken:
    Chickens are distinguished from other birds by their comb and two wattles. There are many different varieties of chicken.
  4. American Robin:
    Robins have a red breast and are grey on the rest of their bodies. Their heads are dark. They are one of the most popular songbirds in the country.
