Most people don’t view birds as traditional ‘pests.’ However, some birds, such as pigeons, geese, and sparrows, are native to regions throughout New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut. These birds aren’t so much the problem as their waste. Bird droppings are not only unsightly, but they also carry diseases that can spread to humans. This is why we need bird pest control!
Birds and their flocks create nests that are a safe-haven for other pests that include mites, ticks, fleas, lice, carpet beetles, carrion flies, and more. These safe-havens are created in gutters, roofs, and within the trees throughout the property. Animals, such as dogs and cats, may interact with these disease-carriers and potentially can get detrimentally ill and spread this disease to humans, often resulting in dire consequences. A good way to deal with this is to limit the source of the disease providers.
If the threat of disease is not enough to convince you to use bird pest control services, the other reason is potential property damage. Bird droppings are acidic and, therefore, can be corrosive toward the elements of your property – destroying aspects of landscapes, roofs, and gardens. This sort of damage can require time and monetary resources to repair. Additionally, these bird droppings are incredibly unsightly to look at and can ruin the overall aesthetic of the property.
Bird pest control is bird control strategies designed to, humanely, keep birds off your house or residential property. While no humane method is 100% effective at permanently preventing birds from entering properties, these strategies are employed to mitigate the impact of birds. Some of these strategies include bird netting, spikes, shock systems, and more. These strategies can be customized and altered based on the consumer and the level of protection needed from the birds. They can also be applied to both residential and commercial properties.
