The Damage Birds Can Cause to Your Home

Birds, if left unaddressed, can inflict significant harm on your property. Their presence poses risks like these: 

  • Structural damage: Bird droppings, when accumulated on surfaces like rooftops, gutters, and ledges, contain uric acid. The acid can corrode wood, metal, paint, and concrete, leading to structural deterioration.
  • Illness: Bird droppings are a breeding ground for harmful bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Inhaling dried bird droppings particles can trigger respiratory issues, particularly for those with asthma or allergies. 
  • Nesting habits: Birds often seek shelter in chimneys, vents, and attics. This can result in blockages that impede proper ventilation or chimney function. Nests in chimneys can also create fire hazards due to the accumulation of nesting materials near heat sources.
  • Noise and disturbance: Persistent bird activity, especially during mating or nesting seasons, can produce disruptive sounds that interfere with residents' sleep, concentration, and overall comfort. 

Bird Mites

Also sometimes called “chicken mites,” bird mites are a type of pest that lives on the skin of wild birds. These pests are very small, often measuring no larger than one millimeter, and typically can be found in wild bird nests. Once birds leave these nests, any mites left behind can sometimes enter homes looking for shelter and a new food source.

Bird mites are not typically classified as parasitic for humans, as human blood does not provide them with their dietary needs. However, that doesn’t stop them from biting and feeding on blood as a temporary measure. Bird mites have been known to cause redness, swelling, and itching that can become severe. Keeping birds and bird nests away from your home is a good way to prevent bird mites from becoming a frustrating and potentially painful pest problem for your home. 

Our Commitment to Humane and Eco-Friendly Bird Control

We focus on utilizing eco-friendly methods of managing bird activity. Our methods are meant to be safe, effective, and sustainable for the local ecosystem. You can also be confident that our control methods are humane to the birds themselves while still giving you the effective control you need and deserve. 

For instance, we can utilize bird netting and mesh barriers to prevent birds from accessing vulnerable areas, allowing their safety while protecting your property. Our techniques ultimately focus on gentle persuasion rather than harm. By promoting coexistence through understanding and respect for these creatures, we aim to achieve effective bird management while upholding ethical standards of wildlife conservation.

By opting for humane and eco-friendly bird control measures, you are not only safeguarding your home but also contributing to the preservation of a balanced ecosystem. These strategies prioritize safety, sustainability, and compliance with environmental regulations, promoting a harmonious coexistence between wildlife and human habitats. 

The Signs You May Have Bats

Detecting signs of a bat infestation early on is a part of timely intervention. Look out for these common indicators that bats may be present in or around your home:

  • Squeaking or chattering noises: Bats communicate through vocalizations, producing high-pitched squeaks or chattering sounds.
  • Guano accumulation: Bat droppings, known as guano, may accumulate in areas where bats roost, such as attics or eaves.
  • Stains on walls or ceilings: Dark, oily stains on your walls or ceilings could result from bat activity.
  • Visible entry points: Check for openings or gaps in your home's exterior where bats could enter to roost.

Effective Ways to Keep Bats Away From Your Home

Preventing bat infestations calls for proactive measures. These strategies may be able to deter bats from your property:

  • Seal the entry points: Close any openings or gaps in your home's exterior to prevent bats from entering.
  • Install bat houses: These are an alternative roosting option that encourages bats to settle in designated areas away from your home.
  • Outdoor lighting: Bright lights can deter bats, as they prefer dark, secluded roosting spots.
  • Trim your trees and foliage: Keep trees and bushes near your home trimmed to reduce potential roosting sites for bats.
