Birds in your house?
Birds can be beautiful, but once birds enter your home, it’s not so pretty. The most common birds to enter a home are pigeons, swallows, and starlings. These birds will enter attics, chimneys, gable vents, roof vents, and bathroom vents to find a warm, safe place to nest. Once inside the home, it becomes unsanitary quickly. Bird droppings can carry up to 60 different diseases. The mites and lice they carry can cause an infestation in your home, and often they use your home’s insulation or electrical wiring to build their nests, which causes fire hazards. All in all, it’s best to avoid this situation.
How do you know if you have birds in your home?
If you suspect that you have birds in your home, here are some things to look for:
- Droppings on the side of your home
- Chirping, scratching, or cooing
- Holes in the roof
- Nesting materials
How can you remove birds from your home?
If you have discovered a bird or birds in your home, the most effective and safe way to remove them is to call a professional Wildlife Control Operator who is trained and licensed for this type of work. We have a number of qualified companies that we can refer you to for help. However, a simple internet search will work too.
Once you have decided which wildlife removal company to hire, they will begin the process of removing the birds/nesting and begin to formulate an exclusion & remediation plan for the bird damage in your home. This plan will include sealing up any entry points to prevent/deter future birds from making their way back into your attic and cleaning up the mess they left behind.
