Pest Bird Identification

What are birds?

Birds like pigeons, sparrow, starlings, and other problem birds are often described as pest birds. In large populations, these birds, have the potential to become very problematic for both home and business owners. They cause damage, pose health risks, are difficult to control and get rid of, and in general, are a nuisance to contend with day after day.

Are birds dangerous?

Birds can contaminate food, water, and anything else they come into contact with. They release airborne spores in their feces that, when inhaled, can cause illness. These birds also carry disease-carrying parasites that spread their own set of diseases to people and pets. 

In addition to the health risks they pose, birds are also very damaging pests. In fact, pest birds are responsible for millions of dollars in damages to properties every year. Bird droppings are corrosive and eat away at roofing and other structural material. Their feathers and nesting debris can clog machinery and cause electrical shorts and fires.

Why do I have a bird problem?

Pest birds have come to expect people and our properties to provide them with easy access to food and shelter. Outdoor eating areas, parks, trash cans, gardens, and bird feeders attract many species of pest birds. They nest and roost on the roofs of our buildings, and they drink from our clogged gutters, dripping outdoor faucets, and birdbaths.

Where will I find birds?

Pest birds live and cause problems for people, whether you live in the heart of the city, the suburbs, or a farming community. They roost, forage for food, and become a source of economic loss in a variety of places including:

  • Yards and homes

  • Warehouses

  • Barns

  • Under bridges

  • Parks

  • Crop fields

  • Golf courses
