If I leave the birds alone will they just go away?
Not before they do significant damage. Once birds live in a wall or in an attic they will usually stay. Once the birds are removed, their nest and droppings need to be removed and sanitized, and usually bird spikes and bird repellent placed to prevent further infestations.
There is a bird in my attic. What do i do?
Birds are nuisance animals. They create their nest, leave tons of droppings which can turn to mold, and mold can release spores into the air which affect your families health over time. Its important to quickly call a wildlife expert who can tell you about the process of getting rid of birds from your home.
Why is bird removal important if they are in my attic?
Birds come in pairs, and also live in families of birds. So once you have one bird in your home, you are likely to have many others. Birds fly in flocks, and you dont want a whole flock living in your home rent free. On a serious note, birds carry diseases, salmonella, and leave bird droppings that carry even more diseases. They are a nuisance and need to be removed by a wildlife professional.
Professional Bird Control Methods
About the Animal
Birds aren’t the first thing you think of when you hear “nuisance wildlife”, but these animals can cause a lot of problems. They affect both residential areas and commercial ones.
Their droppings are acidic, and they can slowly damage anything around. This will slowly wear down the building and ruin nearby cars. Their waste also has a bad connotation, which can sully a business’s reputation.
That’s not even mentioning the diseases and parasites they carry, or the damage they cause to ducts and a building’s HVAC system.
We value animal lives at Nuisance Wildlife Rangers, which is why we use exclusion techniques whenever possible. This involves sealing up all gaps the birds use, ensuring they can never get back into your home.
By timing when we seal these holes, we can let the bird leave on its own accord, making this approach one of the most humane.
Another popular control method involves bird spikes. The idea is to place uncomfortable spikes on ledges where birds normally rest. This makes the area uncomfortable for them, so they’re less likely to stay there. Over time, this makes the birds leave your home and search elsewhere for a place to stay.
Bird wires have a similar philosophy to bird spikes. They’re designed to make parts of your home uncomfortable for birds. These have certain advantages over spikes, as they’re less visible to the human eye so won’t negatively impact the appearance of your home or business.
Netting is one of the best control methods out there. It’s simple, effective, and humane.
The idea is to cover an area with the net, which creates an impenetrable barrier for the birds. This puts some distance between the building and the birds, which helps reduce the amount of damage they cause.
Traps are one of the oldest ways of controlling animal populations, and they’ve only gotten better with time. There are several great traps out there that make capturing and relocating birds a breeze.
These traps allow us at Nuisance Wildlife Rangers to effectively control bird populations while remaining humane and ethical.
The best way of controlling any nuisance wildlife is by stopping it from showing up in the first place.
Remove Standing Water
Birds love being around standing water. It provides them with what they need. By taking the time to remove small puddles, clean gutters, and take care of other sources of standing water, you’ll drastically reduce the chances of them showing up.
Remove Food Sources
Food is another major necessity for birds. You can prevent them from showing up by cutting off their food supply.
Go around your home and remove any pet food and fruits around. You should also cover your trashcans so birds can’t gain access.
Just a Call Away
Nuisance Wildlife Rangers has five years of experience handling birds and other wildlife. We’re experienced in all these different bird control techniques, so give us a call! We service many areas in Southern Florida.
If you’re a homeowner, then you’re probably familiar with many of the ways that birds will try to share your home with you. It’s common to find birds nesting inside the eaves of your roof, in your attic, or even in your gutters. It’s a difficult thing to prevent because many bird species are tiny and can easily fit into holes that we might overlook.
At Nuisance Wildlife Rangers, there are a few effective methods for bird prevention and bird removal that we recommend. If you would like to learn more about bird removal visit bird-removal.com. In general, prevention is your best option. If done correctly, you’ll not only remove pesky birds from your property but also keep them away for years to come.
Bird Prevention Techniques
Prevention is really the key when it comes to removing birds from your home. If you can get rid of the reasons the birds want to be there, then they will leave on their own!
First and foremost, it pays to keep your yard clean. There are thousands of bird species out there – each one eats something different so in general, removing waste and debris is a good call. It’s also a good idea to remove anything that might collect standing water because to a bird, this will look like a great place to get a drink.
It’s also a good idea to secure your garbage cans with tight lids, or move them inside a garage or shed. Additionally, if you feed your pets outside, don’t leave any of their food or water out.
How to Keep Birds Out of Your Attic
Birds are generally pretty small, so they can squeeze into gaps that you might not have even considered as entry points. If you are hearing birds in your attic or crawlspace, it’s likely that they have exploited a small gap in your roofline or found a way through the eaves.
The first step to keeping birds out of the house is to inspect the outside of your home. At Nuisance Wildlife Rangers, we are bird removal experts so we know exactly what to look for. For an untrained eye, it can be difficult to account for every single potential bird entry hole.
In general, check the roofline of your house for any small gaps between shingles. Look for small areas around the roof where there are gaps in your siding. This is especially true for multi-story homes. You might want to use a ladder to get up on your roof for a better view, but please use caution.
As you identify potential bird entry points, you must seal them up. At Nuisance Wildlife Rangers, we use and recommend wire mesh with holes no larger than 1/2 inch. Birds cannot chew through this material. Additionally, it’s pretty low profile so it won’t spoil the appearance of your home.
How to Scare Birds Away
Birds are generally pretty skittish, meaning they are easily scared away. As a homeowner, you can use this to your advantage. It’s easy and cheap to set up a few decoys around your property to discourage birds from ever getting near. You can also use any shiny objects you have lying around – simply hanging them from your trees will help to deter birds.
Our top recommendation for scaring birds away is a predator decoy. There’s a pretty wide range of these available, from simple plywood dog cutouts to highly realistic plastic or stone figurines.
If you’re concerned about how your property will look, we suggest going for higher-end decoys because they’ll look better. When used well, these can actually add to the aesthetic appeal of your property.
We have also seen some instances where a traditional scarecrow works just as well as these store-bought options. This is a cheaper alternative and can be a fun project if you have kids!
Specifically, for scaring away birds, we suggest using coyote, snake, and owl decoys because these are natural bird predators. You should set them up around the area you want to keep birds away from.
Just be aware that birds are pretty smart, so if you leave the same decoys out in the same spots for more than a few days they’ll probably catch on. We suggest keeping up the variety and moving your decoys around at least every three days.
Protect Your Gutters
Birds and other animals like to get inside gutters because they’re high off the ground and relatively protected. To prevent this, we suggest that you cover your gutters in mesh to keep birds from making nests inside them.
This is all-around a good idea because it will also keep your gutters cleaner for longer and prevent nasty clogs and leaf buildup. It’s really a win-win, but we strongly advise you to get a professional to do this work. It’s difficult, time-consuming, and if not done properly, it won’t be effective.
You can also use bird spikes or porcupine wire around your gutters to keep animals away. You have probably seen this on the outsides of businesses – it’s basically like a bunch of small nails sticking straight up. This will keep birds from landing on or nesting in these areas.
Our Professional Pigeon Removal Services
Pigeons are one of the most common birds in cities around the world. Their abundance and filthiness have led many to call them the “rats of the sky”. Like rats, pigeons are a host to countless diseases and parasites. These birds also multiply rapidly, much like rodents, which is why they’re difficult to get rid of.
Problems Caused by Pigeons
Pigeons cause a lot of problems. These affect both residential and commercial areas. Here are some of the most common:
Spreading Diseases and Parasites
Pigeons carry many diseases. These range from harmless to deadly.
- Salmonella: This is a common disease that leads to stomach aches and diarrhea. It’s what causes food poisoning when birds or other carriers infect food stores.
- E. Coli: This disease is similar to salmonella, and leads to stomach aches, bloody diarrhea, and vomiting.
- West Nile Virus: Birds spread this disease to mosquitos who then pass it on to people, resulting in rashes and aches.
- Histoplasmosis: A deadly fungus that ruins the lungs when inhaled. It’s often found in bird stool.
These birds also carry parasites like bed bugs, mites, and worms.
Ruining Companies’ Reputations
Because pigeons are dirty animals, the places they’re found are assumed to be filthy. This can be problematic for businesses who want to leave people with a good impression. This is like a rat being found in a building.
Pigeons have surprisingly corrosive droppings. Their waste will quickly eat through any material it lands on, resulting in major damage. This is particularly troubling for cars, as the droppings can corrode the paint — forcing you to pay a fortune to get the original color back.
At Nuisance Wildlife Rangers, we seek to solve all your wildlife problems. Our work revolves around being humane and effective, as we value the lives of animals. That’s why we only use the safest and most ethical techniques to control pigeon populations. We’ll ensure your home or business is free of these pests, without putting the animals in unnecessary harm.
Identifying the Cause
The first step of our service involves identifying the source of the problem. We try to find important information about the pigeon, such as its breed, the location of its nest, and its food sources. These give us crucial information about the bird’s habits, allowing us to remove them in the most effective way possible.
Trapping the Pigeons
We’ll often try to trap the pigeon, especially if there are a lot of them in the area. This involves bringing the right type of live trap for the pigeon species. We may also place some bait if needed.
The trap is placed near the bird’s nest or in the area they like to sit. This increases the chance of them being caught. Once the bird is captured, we’ll work to relocate the animal far away. This ensures the pigeon cannot find its way back to your home or business.
Installing Bird Deterrents
We’ve found that the best way of removing pigeons is by installing bird deterrents. These are a variety of devices specifically designed to irritate birds and force them to leave the area.
Some commonly used deterrents include bird spikes — which are installed on roofs and other areas frequented by pigeons and poke them until the birds leave — and birds wires, which perform a similar task but with a thin wire across those areas. Once we’ve installed them, the birds won’t have anywhere to land on. That’s why they’ll slowly give up and leave you alone.
Another popular choice is bird netting, which is set up to create a physical barrier. This stops the birds from entering some areas, which can be used to protect sensitive equipment and preventing the birds from disturbing your customers. With this setup, your home or business will soon be bird-free.
Cleaning the Area
Even after the birds are gone, they’ll leave a lot of waste and debris behind. This is full of bacteria and viruses, so it should be removed to prevent you from being harmed. We’ll help remove the nests and other debris, which will stop pigeons from coming back. It also gets rid of the source of disease.
Once the pigeons are gone and the area is clean, we seek to prevent pigeons from ever bothering you again. We’ll guide you through some simple steps you can take to keep your home or business free from these flying animals. The most important step is to remove any standing water in the area. Birds and pigeons are attracted to these, so they should be removed at once. This gets rid of the birds’ source of water, so they have no reason to show up in the first place. Another crucial step is to remove all sources of food. This means stopping anyone from feeding birds if they already do so. It also involves securing garbage to prevent the animals from eating from the trash can.
Birds are no doubt adorable animals, and they come in different beautiful colors. But these colorful creatures can be a nuisance when they show up where they are not wanted. Like every other animal, birds are all for survival and procreation. They search for the ideal place to build their nests and when that place happens to be on your property, then that can be the beginning of a serious bird problem. To learn more about Bird Control and Removal visit bird-removal.com
Bird removal and control is not an easy task, and it requires both skill and experience. Some bird species are protected by either federal or state laws or both, and handling such species requires the appropriate certification.
However, most of the nuisance bird species that invade homes and properties including pigeons, starlings, and sparrows are not protected, but they still require delicate handling. Every animal problem needs a professional to reduce the risk of hurting both humans and animals, and birds are no different.
What Problems Do Birds Cause?
Birds don’t seem like they can cause a lot of problems but don’t be deceived because that’s not the case. Bird problems can be very serious and if left untreated can quickly get out of hand. When birds become attracted to your property and decide to make their nest there, watch for litters of bird droppings around your lawn and in no time you may have piles of bird droppings on the roof and in your attic.
Birds can also be very noisy with their chirping noises and flapping of wings as they come and go. Weird bird sounds can be an inconvenience, but the droppings are the greatest damage these animals will do. Plus, bird droppings can attract other animals and insects to the property, and pose health risks for those living on the property.
Getting birds out of your property can be a challenge, but getting them to continue to stay away from is even tougher. However, our team of bird removal and control professionals will safely remove birds from your property and also install bird deterrents such as netting and spikes to ensure that the birds never come back.
What Happens if Birds Get into the Attic?
Birds will usually hang around the roof and ledges or on trees, that’s if you have trees on your property. But sometimes, these birds can find their way into attics and chimneys, and when they do, the birds will not hesitate to make their nests to fully enjoy the comfort the attic provides. Birds in the attic will also have babies in their nests which they will fiercely protect and defend.
When birds get into an attic and build their nests, they will certainly create an incredible amount of mess by tracking filthy droppings around the attic. They will also bring in waste from outside when they return from their foraging trips. And the longer these creatures roost in an attic, the more established they become, the more mess they make, and the more difficult it gets to exclude them and clean up the place.
To exclude birds from the attic, our bird control professionals at Nuisance Wildlife Rangers use a one-way exclusion device. We will take a good look at the condition of the place and identify the exit and entry point, then install a one-way exclusion door which will permit the birds to successfully fly out but will prevent them from coming back in.
How Can You Deter Birds?
Removing birds is one thing, getting them to stay away from is another. However, there are certain installations that can be used to discourage birds from coming around some places. Bird deterrents are not all the same, while some are certainly more effective than others, how you install each one and the place and area where it’s installed also contributes to how effectively it deters birds.
For instance, bird slopes are anti-perching deterrents placed on ledges and eaves to prevent birds from landing or roosting there, and they are very effective when installed properly. Here are some other bird deterrents:
- Bird netting: this is one of the most common bird deterrents. It is placed over an area to prevent birds from perching or landing there. For instance, you can install bird netting over your garden to protect your vegetables from birds. Bird netting can also be installed on roofs building facades and ledges to deter birds.
- Bird spikes: when properly installed, these are also effective at deterring birds from perching where they are installed. The long spikes effectively keep birds away.
- Bird slopes: these bird deterrents will prevent birds from landing and roosting on eaves, ledges, window sills, etc.
- Electric bird deterrents: when installed in a place, this system delivers small electric shocks to any bird that perches on the area. The shock is mild and doesn’t cause any real harm to birds, but it scares them away for good.

How to Clean Pigeon Feces? Are They Dangerous to Touch?
There seems to be quite a bit of heavy debate around pigeons, with people either taking sides that are wildly against them or love them to the moon. Regardless of what your own, personal opinion about pigeons is, it’s important to understand that before anything, pigeons are, after all, wild birds that can expose you to a wide array of different diseases. In this article, our team at Nuisance Wildlife Rangers sets out to talk to you about pigeons, and more specifically pigeon poop.
Now, most urban areas are crawling with pigeons, which is why pigeon droppings have become a constant sight. On the sidewalk, on your car, in your backyard, on your porch, and pretty much everywhere else you look. Hey, it sometimes even gets on you, so this is why you need to know how to properly clean off pigeon poo, which is what we’re going to show you now.
First of all, is it dangerous to touch pigeon feces?
Actually, pigeon feces are less dangerous than you might think. Pigeon poop carries all sorts of bacteria, which can result in a human being becoming infected with Histoplasmosis, Cryptococcosis, or Psittacosis. While all three of these human diseases are associated with pigeon feces, the chances of actually becoming infected are fairly low.
Psittacosis is a very, very rare disease, with not even one case per year. As for Histoplasmosis and Cryptococcosis, you would have to be exposed to very high amounts of pigeon feces before either disease might actually develop. So generally speaking, no, you won’t get sick if you clean a bit of pigeon poop off your window.
How should you clean pigeon feces?
However, while the chance to become infected is really small, it’s always best to err on the side of caution. This is why we recommend wearing disposable rubber or latex gloves when disposing of pigeon droppings. These will, at the very least, protect your skin from the harsh chemicals included in cleaning ingredients.
When scrubbing off pigeon poo, regardless of the surface, you will want to use a strong disinfectant to make sure you get all the waste off. You might also want to wear a protective mask, as ingested pigeon poop can cause diarrhea, infection with Salmonella, as well as the other diseases mentioned above. Again, the chance of infection is low, but it’s not uncommon to touch the waste and then, without thinking, touch your nose, mouth, eyes, or other sensitive areas. It’s also possible to breathe in the dry particles of pigeon feces, which carry all the same types of bacteria and disease risks.
So we recommend wearing personal protective equipment that includes a mask, gloves, and ideally, even protective glasses, to avoid transporting the bacteria into your eyes.
You might also want to be mindful of the cleaning agent used. Remember that pigeon droppings are highly acidic in nature, which means they can be very harmful and have a corrosive effect on your furniture, or the surface you are cleaning. You will probably want to pick a cleaning agent that doesn’t cause any more damage to your property. You’ll also want to make sure that the fabric of your gloves, or other protective gear, works well with the cleaning solution used.
A good DIY option for removing pigeon waste from something is using bleach or laundry detergent. Vinegar can also be effective in negating the health hazards posed by pigeon feces.
At the end of the day, the proper method for cleaning pigeon poop is doing it with enough care, and taking appropriate protection methods!
How To Keep Pigeons Off Of The Roof?
Pigeons are a common nuisance animal. These birds are so filthy and riddled with disease that they’re occasionally called the rats of the sky. Like rats, pigeons also carry many parasites, so you should keep them away from children and pets.
These birds are known to leave their droppings everywhere. This may simply seem like a minor inconvenience, but the droppings can ruin a business’s appearance leading to lost customers. These droppings are also corrosive in nature, so they slowly damage the items they land on.
No one wants to deal with these problems, so you should find ways to keep pigeons away from your roof and home. Try some of these tips:
Remove Food And Water
Pigeons, like all animals, need to stay close to a reliable source of food and water. So if you find yourself constantly dealing with pigeons, then they’ve probably found something near your home.
You should remove all bird feeders and birdbaths. All they do is incentivize pigeons to stay, so you would be better off without these items on your property. Even if you like having other birds around, you should remove these items — especially since pigeons often prevent other more pleasant birds from accessing these feeders.
Harvest plants early, especially if they grow fruits and vegetables. Any grown food attracts these birds, so quickly collect the food for yourself before the pigeons get their beaks on it.
Keep pet food indoors. Pigeons aren’t picky eaters, so they’ll eat any food leftover by your pets. If you keep this food indoors, you take away one of their meal options and give them one less reason to stick around.
Scare The Pigeons
Another way to remove pigeons from your home is to try and scare them away.
You could try to give the illusion of movement using shiny objects, like reflective tape and silver streamers. When the sun shines on the reflective material, it looks like something is moving to a bird.
You could also try to scare the bird away with something big, like a scarecrow or a decoy bird of prey. These objects can trick the pigeons into thinking they are in danger, so they will avoid your home.
One other option is to use odd sounds, which could be from a radio or from wind chimes. The sudden noises would put pigeons on edge, which will make them less likely to stick around.
Unfortunately, scare tactics are not always effective. Pigeons will quickly grow used to these things, and they’ll eventually return. This only works as a short-term solution.
Often, you’ll have no choice but to install new items on your home. These either block off the pigeon’s access to your roof, or they will constantly irritate the birds and force them to leave.
One option is to install anti-perching or bird spikes. These items poke and prod any pigeons who land near them, causing severe discomfort. As a result, many birds will avoid perching in the area. You can place them on any flat surface, making them ideal for roofs.
Another great idea is to install bird netting. These nets create a physical barrier and prevent pigeons from being able to access parts of your home. You could install them on your rooftop to prevent birds from roosting there.
Bird wire is yet another option. These are installed in a way that creates an unstable and uneven area, making it difficult for pigeons to properly land. With enough bird wire, you could deter pigeons from ever landing on your roof again.
Installing these items can be a difficult feat, so you can opt to use sticky gel on your roof. Like bird spikes, these gels make it uncomfortable for pigeons to land on the roof, forcing them away. The downside of these gels is that they need to consistently be replaced and reapplied.
