Strange Noises

Birds have a distinct chirping sound that nearly anyone can recognize. Birds chirping are loud enough to wake you up in the morning and continue to annoy you until bedtime. You might be able to handle one bird chirping in your attic, but birds will reproduce or more will gather in your attic. If you’re only hearing the chirp from one bird now, rest assured others are coming soon. 

Urine and Droppings

Another sign that birds are living in your attic is urine and feces present in the attic. It goes without saying that not only is this a sanitary concern, it’s also a health concern. Bird urine and feces can promote bacteria and mold growth. Both of those things are harmful to the health of humans. 

Tick, Mites, and Other Insects

Another health concern that comes along with birds living in your attic is the possibility of insects entering your home. Birds can carry insects on their body, and once they’ve settled into your house, these insects will unlatch from the bird and roam around your home. 

Parasites are known to carry an abundance of diseases including:

  • Lyme Disease
  • Tularemia
  • Ehrlichiosis
  • Borrelia Miyamotoi
