Bird Removal

maryland bird removal

Most birds like to build their nests in trees, but as wildlife habitats have been eroded over the years, many have taken to nesting in homes and buildings. There are many different species of birds that will nest in your home for a variety of reasons. Often times homeowners will be able to see birds flying into and out of their home’s attic or chimney, and may even be able to see parts of a nest. You can also usually hear birds if they’re nesting in your home, as baby birds especially can be quite loud.

Birds in Your Attic or Chimney? We Can Help.

One of the most important parts of removing a bird from your home is to figure out what kind of bird you are dealing with first. Here are some of the more common birds we’ve dealt with:

  • Pigeons – The old “rats with wings”. Pigeons are among the most common birds we find living in people’s homes. They like to roost in ledges, beams, sills, attics, A/C units, etc. You name it and a pigeon will try to roost in it.
  • Woodpeckers – While not quite as common as pigeons, woodpeckers can be much more destructive. As their name suggests, woodpeckers like to peck at the wood. This may be harmless when they’re pecking at a tree, but can be very dangerous when they’re pecking at your home.
  • Canadian Geese – This would apply to any kind of goose, but the most common goose in our region is the Canadian goose. They often fly in large flocks and can cause serious damage to your yard, tearing it up, and leaving behind large amounts of excrement.

How We Address Bird Removal

Bird removal is significantly different from other types of animal removal. The primary reason behind this is because the live capture of birds is highly difficult since they are a winged species and tend to fly far out of reach when confronted by a perceived threat. If there are birds nesting in your attic or chimney, our experts suggest installing exclusionary barriers.

These barriers allow the birds to leave or escape your home but disable them from getting back inside. Another solution to prevent birds from invading and nesting indoors is to seal all holes in your home’s exterior. Birds are capable of squeezing themselves into very small holes, so sealing them completely is key.

If the birds are roosting on the outside of your home, it can be a bit more tricky to permanently remove them. These animals often build their nests on ledges and beams around your home’s exterior, and the most effective option for keeping the birds away is by making these spaces uninhabitable for them. We commonly recommend bird barriers that include spikes, netting, and shock tracks.

What You Need to Know About
Bird Removal

Living with a bird in your home can make you feel bird-brained, but don’t lose your mind, you just need some assistance from an experienced bird removal specialist. We’ve helped countless people over the years and have removed flocks worth of birds. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we’ve gotten from our customers:

Can I Use a Repellent to Rid Myself of Birds?

There are many methods out there that claim they can repel birds, but they’re all snake oil. Many people put out scare devices such as pinwheels, streamers and the famous plastic owls. We’ve all seen those plastic owls, and while they’re intended to scare birds away, they aren’t very effective. The only real proven methods of removing birds from your home are the ones used by trained bird removal specialists.

Can Birds Be Relocated?

When conducting most animal removals, we finish them by relocating the animal, but this is not possible with birds. Most birds have very long homing ranges and no matter how far away you take them, they will be able to find their way back.

What Kinds of Diseases do Birds Carry?

Different birds carry different diseases and bring with them different problems. Pigeon droppings can grow fungus, and breathing in the fungal spores can lead to the lung disease histoplasmosis. Many birds are also prone to carrying salmonella.
