Common House Finch Issues
- Yards with easy access to seeds and other dietary favorites are frequently used as house finch hangouts.
- Most house finch damage is the result of their food-seeking behaviors.
- The birds will peck at ripe fruits and eat seeds from several types of plants. Large finch flocks can decimate crop yields for farmers.
- House finches also eat budding blossoms and knock off flowering petals, which is frustrating for horticultural workers.
- Vineyard owners also deal with house finches as they target grapes.
Controlling House Finches
- Control methods often require the use of nets to keep house finches from reaching crops or flowers.
- Limiting possible nest sites, such as woodpiles and overgrown shrubs, also helps limit populations.
- House finches are protected by federal law, which means it is illegal to kill them.
