Get the Help You Need to Remove Birds from Your Home & Protect it from Future Infestations
In nature, birds look for sheltered areas that are near food and water to build their nests, such as pigeons. This could be in trees, a bush, or on the ground.
Birds will also take advantage of sheltered places on your home and will potentially build nests. The roof overhang, for example, is a spot birds will build a nest.
In addition to birds being irritating, bird droppings can be home to a fungus whose spores trigger histoplasmosis, an infection with flu-like symptoms. Birds infested with fleas, ticks, and mites can bring these parasites into your home and potentially spread them to you.
In extreme cases, the weight of nests can cause portions of the roof or attic to collapse.
Catseye Pest Control will help give you peace of mind and ensure this does not happen to your home, business, or other structure. Protect your home from birds and nuisance wildlife today.
Removing Birds from Your Property
We have to coexist with birds and other nuisance wildlife critters, but not in our homes.
Most of the birds found in the United States are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty and Endangered Species Act, making professional bird removal even more important.
To prevent an infestation or damage to your home, nesting spots must be eliminated, and points of entry need to be sealed.
Tree branches can act as shelter or a place for birds to build a nest. And even though they can fly, branches can also act as an easier way for birds to access the roofline. Keeping the limbs trimmed back can act as a deterrent but isn’t the total solution.
More importantly, damaged areas of the roof, fascia, soffit, or chimney will need to be repaired.
Birds will use these damaged areas as a place to build a nest or access the home in search of shelter.
Eliminating the points of entry will encourage the birds to seek solitude elsewhere.
Cleaning Up the Mess Left Behind by Birds
Bird droppings are not only unpleasant to look at, but the droppings could damage the structure. Additionally, as the droppings accumulate, it can lead to fungus growth and potentially spread diseases.
Breathing in dust or particles that contain bird droppings can lead to potentially inhaling several diseases, including psittacosis and encephalitis.
Once our wildlife professionals have safely removed the nest and sealed the points of entry, it’s imperative to perform a thorough cleaning of the impacted area.
Proper ventilation, cleaning, and disinfecting of the entire area will help you sleep soundly at night. Our process will help defend against the spread of disease while also repairing any damage caused by birds.
Signs of Bird Infestations
Observing an unusual amount of bird activity or finding nests on your house are the major signs that your home may have a bird problem.
You may also find a substantial number of droppings on your siding or near your home. Birds chirping, or, in the case of woodpeckers, loud pecking noises in or near your home are also signs of an infestation.
Bird Nest Removal
To remove birds from a home or business, Catseye uses an eviction process that begins with an in-depth inspection of your home and property.
This allows our wildlife technicians to identify where the birds are roosting, find out what’s attracting them, and if they have caused any damage to your house.
Our bird control service is specifically designed for removing bird nests, as well as deterring them from frequenting your property in the future.
Depending on which species of birds have infested your home, we start with a trapping program to reduce the number of birds.
The areas that have seen bird activity are then disinfected, their droppings, and nesting material are removed.
Bird Deterrents for Your Home
Next, we use a variety of visual and sound deterrents to encourage the birds to leave and not return. These include bird spikes, bird netting, and predator bird call boxes.
This equipment makes it uncomfortable for birds to rest, eat, and nest on your home and property.
We also perform minor home repairs to prevent the birds from getting inside or nesting on your house or other structure.
