Say Goodbye To Bird Infestations: The Benefits Of Professional Bird Control Services


When you think of pest control, you might not think about birds. But if you find a bird nest above your front door or in your attic, you’ll need to call a good Vero Beach pest control company. Homeshield Pest Control offers bird removal and pest control services for Vero Beach homes, so you don’t need to worry about the harm caused by these pests

Signs Of A Pest Bird Infestation: Recognize The Presence Of Pest Birds

The most obvious sign of a bird infestation is seeing the birds or their nests. But how can you know if you have a pest bird infestation or just a single, harmless nest? The answer lies in the number of birds and how much they affect your life. One bird nest in a tree probably won’t impact you too much. If it’s in a location where the nest could fall or bird droppings become an issue, you’ll probably want it moved professionally, but the birds themselves might not be as much of a problem. Sometimes, though, birds will move onto your property, and they will cause significant issues. Pigeons are likely culprits; they infest urban and suburban areas and won’t want to leave.

If a bird nest is in your house but out of sight, such as inside the chimney, you’ll probably hear the birds before you see them. Listen for chirping and rustling sounds coming from wherever you suspect the nest to be. 

Safety Considerations: Protecting Your Environment From Pest Birds

There are a few issues that can result from a bird infestation. Pigeons, in particular, carry diseases, including toxoplasmosis and salmonellosis. Their droppings can spread histoplasmosis and damage structures and statues. Bird droppings can also cause accidents as they make walking surfaces slippery. Some birds carry fleas, ticks, lice, and mites, which can then move to other animals or people.

Birds are wild animals, and you should treat them like that. If you find a bird nest near your home that you want to remove, it needs to be taken care of safely so you and the birds aren’t harmed.

Preserve Property Aesthetics: Enhance Visual Appeal With Bird Control

The most important part of preventing pest bird infestations is making it more difficult for birds to build nests around your home.

Try these steps to prevent birds from moving in without installing guards or spikes yourself:

  • Fill in any holes or openings to your house so birds can’t get into the walls.

  • Make sure to keep all window screens in good condition and no doors are left open.

  • Avoid leaving open spaces on flat surfaces where birds could build nests.

  • Keep food, water, and garbage in containers with tight-fitting lids so birds can’t get to them.

  • Do not feed birds around your house.

Birds aren’t quite like other household pests. They won’t always get into your home, but they can still cause problems from outside. These exclusion tips can go a long way toward keeping birds away from your house, making it more difficult for them to find nesting locations on, in, or near your home. These tips also eliminate other attractants, such as food.

It’s vital that you remember that birds are wild animals. Removing a nest without proper training can be unsafe for you and the birds. Homeshield Pest Control is your best option for pigeon and bird control in Vero Beach
