Pest Bird Identification

What are birds?

Birds like pigeons, sparrows, starlings, and other problem birds are pests. These birds can become problematic for home and business owners in large populations. They cause damage, pose health risks, are challenging to control and get rid of, and are generally a nuisance to contend with daily.

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. Pest birds are responsible for millions of dollars in property damages 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.
