Bird Control & Bird-Proofing Programs
Pittsburgh, like any major city, deals with its fair share of birds. As predators, these winged critters feed on insects, rodents, worms, fish, and many other animals. Game birds, songbirds, hawks and other bird species contribute to outdoor recreation and the overall enjoyment of nature. Many of these birds are protected by local and state laws, so we do not recommend DIY bird removal. Trust Critter Control of Greater Pittsburgh to remove your bird problems for good!
Bird Damage—The Most Common Bird Pests
The three most common pest birds are pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows. Several other types of birds can cause destruction of their own, but these are the most common. Other birds that may be an issue include sparrows, woodpeckers, waterfowl, and blackbirds. Pigeons, sparrows, and starlings will likely require bird proofing and bird control. Pest bird situations that require bird control and bird proofing include:
- Feeding on agricultural products
- Roosting or nesting around human habitations
- Destroying vegetation and contaminating foods
- Noise, droppings, odor, and feathers
- Diseases or ectoparasites affecting man including histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis
- Unpleasant or hazardous working conditions
Getting Rid of Birds: Bird-Proofing
Bird removal and removal of other winged creatures is a unique challenge due to their ability to fly. They can also reach high places and often nest out of reach of humans. The secret to effective bird control is to make sure they don't have any appealing landing spot; they won't want to roost there, either. Trapping and removing the current roosting birds is a quick fix, but it is likely that your Critter Control of Greater Pittsburgh technician will utilize several different methods to keep your bird problems under control and help you get back to your routine, whether it's your home or business.
