How do you keep birds away from your home or business without harming them? It’s a challenging question with a surprisingly elegant solution when you use the right bird control service. Let’s go through the bird removal problem step-by-step:
Birds aren’t too much of a nuisance in most situations. However, when they flock and adopt a particular area, they can cause damage and deter customers. Just earlier this year, a pair of Northern Mockingbirds made their home nearby. Their territory encompassed several houses on that side of the block. Anytime anyone stepped out of the door, they’d immediately have to fend off swooping birds aiming straight at their head. Their warning cry was also shrill and could be heard most hours of the day. The mockingbirds didn’t hurt anyone, but they did make you paranoid the moment you stepped outside.
Even worse than that, a flock of pigeons can make quick work of particular areas with their droppings. Droppings carry disease and can spread infection. They’re a particular danger to children and pets. They can also wear away paint, finishes, and protective coatings, quickly amassing a serious need for home or business repair. The result looks ugly, can damage your home or building, and is a health hazard.
Avoiding Harmful Methods
Nonetheless, this is a bird’s habitat and the last thing we want to be doing is killing them off. The only thing that’ll get worse word of mouth than a business covered in bird droppings is a business that kills birds. Plus, it’s illegal to kill many birds in Massachusetts, and for very good reasons.
Neither can birds be effectively trapped and removed except in very particular circumstances. Bird removal is a precise measure aimed toward single birds or families, and can’t address an entire flock. It also requires moving birds a considerable distance, lest they simply fly back and re-nest in the same place. Even moving a bird several miles may not have a lasting effect. What might be several days’ journey for a nuisance pest on land becomes the work of a few hours for some birds. Furthermore, it’s impractical to move the large flocks that usually pose the most immediate problems. That leaves us with one option – deterrence.
