Birds are an important part of our natural environment in the Salt Lake City area. As predators, they feed on insects, rodents, worms, fish, and countless other animals. Game birds, songbirds, hawks and other bird species contribute to outdoor recreation and the overall enjoyment of nature. However, when birds start to gather in large numbers or accumulate extensive droppings, they can become a serious hazard to businesses and homes. Call Critter Control of Salt Lake City as soon as you suspect a bird problem!
Because of these contributions, birds are afforded considerable protection by laws, regulations and public sentiment that controls what kind of bird control can be implemented. Public relations are an integral part of any bird proof and bird control project and Critter Control in the area will educate our clients and the public why a particular bird control or bird proof program or method is necessary.
The three birds that most often become pests in the United States in urban areas are pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows. Other birds, including hawks and swallows, may occasionally cause unexpected and unusual pest problems and require professional control.
- When blackbirds and crows roost in suburban areas, they become pests.
- Woodpeckers may peck holes into house siding while searching for insects, to make nest cavities and as a social activity with other woodpeckers.
- Seagulls can feed on food-plants, and they roost and nest on large flat roofs with crushed stone.
Birds may be beneficial, neutral or harmful to man's interests, depending upon time, location, and activity. Certain birds (sparrows, woodpeckers, waterfowl, pigeons and black birds) are more likely to become pests and require bird proofing and bird control. Pest bird situations that require bird control and bird-proofing include:
- Feeding on agricultural products
- Roosting or nesting around human habitations
- Destroying vegetation and contaminating foods
- Noise, droppings, odor, and feathers
- Diseases or ectoparasites affecting man including histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis
- Unpleasant or hazardous working conditions
Full-Service Bird Proofing Solutions
It can be difficult to control birds. Their mobility and high nests are a challenge for most people and businesses to deal with themselves.
The secret to controlling birds is to deny them places to land and nest on and around your building. Another method of controlling birds is to trap the current roosting birds, and releasing them miles and miles away. It is more likely, however, that our experts will do both of these things to ensure that we can control your bird problems.
The best bird control and bird proof approaches emphasize deterrents, exclusion or modification of buildings. Critter Control’s knowledgeable technicians have several bird control methods to bird proof your home or help to get rid of birds.
