Bird Removal and Pest Bird Deterrence

The singing of the birds in the morning is one of life’s most delightful experiences. However, some bird species can be invasive, destructive- and even dangerous.

Know the Bird Species

Many of the birds in North America are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty and the Endangered Species Act.  Other types of birds are known as flying pests and enjoy no federal protection.  They are the house sparrow, the pigeon, and the European starling.  These birds are known to carry and transmit disease. Their droppings are corrosive to structures and unsanitary, and their nests often interfere with public infrastructure.

If you believe you are being plagued by one of these invasive bird species, your first step is to identify which type of bird it is.

Pigeons (or Rock Doves): The largest of the three types of pest bird, pigeons live in both rural and urban settings.  They commonly infest manufacturing plants and grain mills.  Doves are dependent on human activity and will not leave the area willingly.  They are approx. 11 inches tall, are grayish with red feet and striped wing tips.

House Sparrows: Aggressive and active all year long, these birds are known to keep homeowners awake with their persistent cheeping.  They prefer grains, can decimate gardens, and can contaminate livestock feed.  House sparrows are about the size of a mouse and light brown or reddish.  They can carry and spread West Nile virus to animals that attack them and anyone who comes into contact with their feathers.

European Starlings: These pest birds travel in massive flocks that swirl and flow through the air like a single massive entity. They are known to descend on an area and effectively take it over through their sheer numbers.  European starlings are between six and 8 inches in length.  They are dark in color with speckles of white and streaks of green and brown.  Their droppings may transmit encephalitis and histoplasmosis.

How to Remove Pest Birds

Getting rid of these airborne pests can be a challenge depending on your location and what is attracting them.  But there are a few effective options open to you.
