Keeping Birds Away
There are three common bird pests in the United States: pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows. Blackbirds, crows, gulls, swallows, and woodpeckers are also known to cause trouble. All these bird species are capable of causing damage to your home and property, whether through destructive nesting habits or social activities (like woodpecker drilling).
It is widely known that birds are clever and persistent; both of which are unfortunate for you as a homeowner since they can be quite hard to get rid of. Some more common examples of bird damage that call for bird-proofing methods include:
- Stealing and eating crops
- Nesting in unfortunate places like chimneys and vents
- Noise, droppings, odor, and feathers
- Diseases or parasites that affect humans, including histoplasmosis
Methods of Bird-Proofing
Trying to control Ann Arbor bird populations can be hard. Their ability to fly and create high nesting areas can make it hard for you to access or catch them. The best way to keep birds away is to make their landing places uncomfortable—a combination of bird deterrents, bird spikes, and bird repellents can be effective.
Both bird deterrent methods and bird-proofing can make for a proven bird control plan. Critter Control of Ann Arbor will work closely with you to complete successful and humane bird control and take back your property and business from birds.
