Is Bird Control Really Necessary?

bird control servicesWhile birds can certainly cause damage to your home, they are also known carriers for many diseases that are dangerous to animals and humans alike. In order to help keep your family and pets safe, bird control services may be necessary.

What Diseases Can Birds Spread?

Diseases spread by birds can include:

  • Histoplasmosis
  • Brachyspira hyodysenteriae (swine dysentery)
  • Salmonella spp.
  • Escherichia coli
  • Campylobacter spp.
  • Listeria monocytogenes
  • Cryptococcosis
  • Psittacosis

Humans are at risk of becoming infected with these organisms through poor standards of hygiene, after being in contact with bird droppings, or by consuming bird-contaminated food or water. High levels of birds can introduce new strains of Salmonella and re-circulate existing infections.

Controlling Birds

Our Wildlife X Team® bird control specialists will work to identify the bird species, behavior, frequency, and habits of any birds on your property. Additionally, they will also look to determine the bird pressure—which refers to the number and density of birds—in particular areas. Using this information, your specialist will be able to select the most appropriate bird proofing strategy.

Once the bird droppings have been removed and the situation fully evaluated, your specialist will be able to begin applying bird proofing strategies on your property. Your specialist will work to remove bird droppings before installing any type of bird deterrent, anti-perching product, or another treatment strategy. These droppings can pose a health risk to your customers, leading to salmonella, psittacosis, and E-coli. Droppings can also cause insect infestation, damage to your products and equipment, and more.

How to Keep Birds out of your Home

Because birds can fly, it can be challenging to keep them off your home. Some of the exclusion methods the team at Wildlife X Team® use include:

Vent Screens

The vents around your home make for a safe and warm location for birds to make their nests. Common locations for birds to reside in your home are your chimney and gable vent. If the screens on these areas are damaged or missing, then they are welcoming the birds in the area to build their nests.

The team at Wildlife X Team® will install the proper chimney cap and gable vent to ensure the birds stay in the wild where they belong.

Bird Spikes

Bird spikes are a great solution when birds keep perching on an area you do not want them to, often resulting in droppings on your items. Bird spikes are also a great option to install around your gutters to keep them clean.

Bird Netting

Bird netting is a bird exclusion method that can be used for a variety of applications. It can keep birds from making their nests in your home, it will keep birds from entering your home through different vents, and can keep birds from landing on any other areas of your home, yard, or garden. Bird nettings is a humane way to encourage birds to find another place to live.

Birds can be quite the nuissance for your home. Contact Wildlife X Team® today for professional bird control and exclusion!
