As much as we all might love seeing birds in the wild, some of them can cause problems when they get too close to your home. Birds such as pigeons, starlings, and sparrows can build unwanted nests on your property, make a mess with their droppings, and even spread diseases. Fortunately, professional bird control services can help keep your commercial property clean and prevent these pests from causing too much trouble.
What You Need to Know About Bird Control Services
In most cases, having a few birds fly around near your property won’t cause many problems. However, some birds such as pigeons and starlings can be a nuisance. They can sometimes be loud enough to cause a disturbance, and they can leave unsightly droppings and feathers everywhere. They can also carry parasites such as fleas, ticks, and mites, all of which can spread disease. Naturally, their roosting and nesting can damage your property, whether that means damaging your roof or blocking drainage gutters with their nests.
Fortunately, there are ways to stop birds nesting on your property. These include bird netting that prevent birds from getting too close to parts of your home, bird trapping to remove them humanely, and bird spikes that prevent them from roosting on railings and the edges of your roof. Bird removal and prevention services can also clean and disinfect parts of your property once the birds themselves are gone.
How Do You Know if You Have Birds Living on Your Property?
You probably see birds fly around and perch near business every so often. While this isn’t always a sign of an infestation, frequent sightings can be cause for alarm. Other signs that you have birds living on your commercial property include feathers and nesting material on rooftops and balconies, excessive droppings on and directly underneath your roof, and frequent chirping, cooing, and scratching coming from the roof.
How Can I Prevent Birds from Roosting on My Commercial Property?
The best way to prevent birds from roosting on your commercial property is to contact a pest control company that specializes in pigeon prevention. These companies can install anti-bird spikes where birds like to roost, bird netting around areas where they like to build nests and identify anything that could be attracting birds to your property. After that, it’s up to you to maintain your property and keep birds away, which isn’t that difficult once you know how to do it. Trim any tree branches that are hanging over your property, keep the surrounding area clean and clear of any possible nesting material, and promptly remove anything that could be used as a food source such as seeds, corn, and any discarded food. This means keeping any garbage secured until it can be collected.
