Got Pest Birds? Hire a Bird Control Professional

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

Written By: Alex Kecskes

Pest birds cause millions of dollars in damage every year. They destroy building facades, paint finishes, statues, food, crops and private property. In the past, keeping birds off property was a huge challenge. Poisons, guns, cannons, and various culling methods offered only limited success. These “solutions” were, for the most part, inhumane, often injuring birds, pets and people. The other problem with these methods was that pest birds just kept coming back. Sometimes in larger numbers.

Enter the Bird Control Professional

Here at last is someone who really understands birds, their habits and how to humanely and effectively deal with them. Someone who is more than just a supplier of bird deterrent or bird repellent devices, but an expert who gauges his or her success by how effectively they solve your pest bird problems. This was a true professional who understood bird control and the many devices that were becoming available to achieve a satisfactory result.

The point is, anyone can sell spikes, netting or sonic deterrents online.  The fact is, some companies have switched to e-commerce, leaving you alone to purchase and install a bird control product using instructions you have to hunt for online.

Birds on Buildings

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Written By: Dr. Rob Fergus

Many people are surprised to find birds causing problems on buildings in urban areas, but birds are actually very common in cities and many species may potentially create problems on buildings.  Fortunately, by understanding the birds that most often cause problems, as well as the architectural features that attract them to buildings, nuisance bird problems can usually be addressed by making the building less attractive to the birds.

Problem birds

While any bird can potentially cause a problem on buildings, most problems in American cities are caused by three bird species introduced from Europe—pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows.  These birds adapted to living in European settlements and cities for thousands of years, and found an easy life living in and around our buildings when first brought to America in past centuries.  Early colonists first brought pigeons to America as a food source, while 19th Century enthusiasts brought over starlings and house sparrows in a misguided effort to control caterpillars (house sparrows) or introduce to America all the birds mentioned in the works of Shakespeare (starlings).  All three of these species readily eat discarded human food and nest on buildings—making them the perfect urban invaders.  In addition to these non-native birds, a few native birds may cause problems, especially when large numbers congregate on rooftops (crows, gulls, and occasionally vultures) or nest on exterior walls (swallows).  In fact, birds that are urban invaders do so well that there are usually more individual birds per square mile in cities than in the countryside!
