Common Species of Birds We Control In Michigan

Pigeons

Pigeon Control Service

Humane Pigeon Removal

Pigeon control refers to the measures taken to manage and reduce the population of pigeons in a particular area. Pigeons can be a nuisance and a health hazard, particularly in urban areas, where they congregate in large numbers and can cause damage to buildings, bridges, and other structures.

There are a variety of methods used to control pigeon populations, including physical barriers, such as netting or spikes, visual deterrents, such as predator decoys, and chemical deterrents, such as bird repellents. In some cases, trapping and relocation may also be used to manage pigeon populations.

Pigeon control is important for public health and safety, as pigeons can carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans, and their droppings can cause damage to property and create unsanitary conditions.

Chimney Swifts

Chimney Swift Control Service

Humane Chimney Swift Removal

Chimney swift control refers to the management and reduction of populations of chimney swifts, a species of bird commonly found in North America that nests in chimneys and other man-made structures.

Chimney swifts play an important role in the ecosystem by controlling insect populations, but their nesting habits can cause problems for homeowners and property managers. Their droppings can create unsanitary conditions, and the birds can cause damage to chimneys and other structures.

There are several methods used to control chimney swift populations, including the installation of chimney caps or screens to prevent the birds from entering, the removal of existing nests during the non-breeding season, and the use of non-lethal deterrents such as bird calls or visual deterrents to discourage nesting.

It is important to note that chimney swifts are protected by federal law under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and any control measures must be undertaken in accordance with state and federal regulations.

Sparrows

Sparrow Control Service

Humane Sparrow Removal

Sparrow control refers to the management and reduction of populations of sparrows, a common bird species found in many parts of the world. Sparrows can be considered pests in certain situations, particularly in urban areas, where they can cause damage to property and crops, and create unsanitary conditions.

There are several methods used to control sparrow populations, including physical barriers, such as netting or spikes, trapping and relocation, and the use of chemical deterrents, such as bird repellents. In some cases, the installation of nest boxes or other nesting sites away from sensitive areas may also be used as a form of population management.

It is important to note that some species of sparrows, such as the house sparrow, are non-native and can be invasive, causing harm to native bird populations. However, other species, such as the song sparrow, are native and play an important role in the ecosystem. Any control measures should be undertaken in accordance with state and federal regulations, and care should be taken to avoid harming non-target species.

Starlings

Starling Control Service

Humane Starling Removal

Starling control refers to the management and reduction of populations of European starlings, a non-native bird species that has become established in many parts of the world, including North America. Starlings are known for their aggressive behavior and their tendency to compete with native bird species for nesting sites and food.

There are several methods used to control starling populations, including physical barriers, such as netting or spikes, trapping and relocation, and the use of chemical deterrents, such as bird repellents. In some cases, the installation of nest boxes or other nesting sites away from sensitive areas may also be used as a form of population management.

It is important to note that European starlings are protected by federal law under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and any control measures must be undertaken in accordance with state and federal regulations. Care should be taken to avoid harming non-target species, and efforts should be made to support the conservation of native bird populations.

Swallows

Swallow Control Service

Humane Swallow Removal

Swallow bird control refers to the management and reduction of populations of swallows, a group of bird species found in many parts of the world. Swallows are known for their distinctive nesting habits, building mud nests on the sides of buildings, bridges, and other man-made structures.

While swallows are not typically considered pests, their nesting habits can cause problems for homeowners and property managers, particularly when their droppings create unsanitary conditions or when the nests interfere with the use of buildings or other structures.

There are several methods used to control swallow populations, including physical barriers, such as netting or spikes, the removal of existing nests during the non-breeding season, and the installation of alternative nesting sites away from sensitive areas. In some cases, non-lethal deterrents such as bird calls or visual deterrents may also be used to discourage nesting.

It is important to note that many species of swallows are protected by federal law under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and any control measures must be undertaken in accordance with state and federal regulations. Care should be taken to avoid harming non-target species, and efforts should be made to support the conservation of native bird populations.

Woodpeckers

Woodpecker Control Service

Humane Woodpecker Removal

Woodpecker control refers to the management and reduction of populations of woodpeckers, a group of bird species found in many parts of the world. Woodpeckers are known for their distinctive drumming and pecking behavior, which can cause damage to trees, wooden structures, and other man-made materials.

While woodpeckers are an important part of many ecosystems, their behavior can create problems for homeowners and property managers, particularly when their drumming or pecking causes damage to buildings or other structures.

There are several methods used to control woodpecker populations, including physical barriers, such as netting or spikes, the use of visual or auditory deterrents, and the installation of alternative nesting sites away from sensitive areas. In some cases, non-lethal chemical deterrents may also be used to discourage woodpeckers from pecking or drumming on structures.

It is important to note that many species of woodpeckers are protected by federal law under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and any control measures must be undertaken in accordance with state and federal regulations. Care should be taken to avoid harming non-target species, and efforts should be made to support the conservation of native bird populations.

Bird Control Solutions- How to Get Rid of Birds

Residential Bird Control

Bird infestations in Michigan can pose significant risks, as their nests harbor bacteria and fungi, potentially leading to various diseases. Histoplasmosis, for example, can be contracted by inhaling airborne spores from bird nests, similar to bat guano. Common problematic bird species for homeowners and industrial buildings in the area include pigeons, chimney swifts, starlings, sparrows, swallows, and woodpeckers.

Our bird removal services mirror those for bats, focusing on identifying entry points and nesting areas. We employ one-way exclusion devices such as cone-shaped tubes or bird netting to effectively prevent birds from re-entering. Just like with bat removal, sealing off potential entry points on the property is crucial. If accessible, removing the nest is vital, sometimes requiring the removal of soffits or nests from attic gables.

Specializing in bird removal and control, we offer comprehensive solutions to prevent birds from accessing your home, attic, fireplace, and vents. Our services include repairing and securing areas vulnerable to bird entry, such as flashing eaves, screening gable vents, capping chimneys, fixing soffits, installing bird netting, and capping exhaust vents. Below, we outline the solutions we provide to eradicate bird infestations and maintain bird-free environments.

Vent Cover

Birds in a Bathroom or Dryer Vent

Bird Vent Covers

At our service, a significant portion of our bird removal or control requests stem from homeowners noticing birds in their bathrooms or dryer vents. This often occurs when they detect the scent of deceased birds or observe them flying in and out. Our approach typically involves removing nests from inside the attic, although in some cases, we're able to safely remove and sanitize the nesting area from outside.

To prevent future occurrences, we cap all of our bathroom vents with the appropriate caps or screens, ensuring proper ventilation while keeping birds out effectively. This proactive measure helps maintain a clean and functional ventilation system for homeowners.

Bird Nest Clean-Up- Attic Restoration

Birds have a knack for nesting in various spaces, with attics being a prime location. During nesting, they introduce materials such as straw, hay, and even garbage, creating unsanitary conditions. Bird droppings in these nests harbor bacteria and fungi, posing significant health risks to humans. At our company, we specialize in attic restoration, which encompasses thorough cleanup, sanitization, and the addition of insulation. This service not only restores the cleanliness of your attic but also ensures a healthier living environment for you and your family.

Bird Repellent Optical Gel on Store Sign

Visual Bird Deterrents

For effective bird control on structures, various deterrent options are available, including the Intimidator, scary eye balloons, predator decoys, Irri-Tape, and laser products. These are particularly useful in areas where installing bird spikes or applying bird optical gel isn't feasible. They are especially effective for stucco and wood-sided homes, where birds tend to create holes and nests. Utilizing these bird deterrents helps keep birds away and protects your property from damage.

Bird Repellents

Optical Gel: Bird repellents or optical bird gels are often used to prevent birds from roosting or nesting. In areas where bird spikes can not be installed, we use optical bird gel so it can not be seen. We like to use optical bird gels on the end of peaks on roofs. The uric acid in bird droppings will rot away the shingles. Bird gel can not be used everywhere as it will melt when it gets too hot outside. This product must be used carefully in homes and buildings.

Bird Netting in Loading Docks

Birds in Loading Docks- Bird Netting Jobs

Bird Netting is an essential solution for addressing bird nesting issues in rafters within loading docks and other open structures. We have experience installing bird netting at various locations, including Costco and car part manufacturing companies, to effectively control bird populations. Every square inch must be meticulously sealed off to prevent birds from finding openings and accessing the area. This is particularly crucial in environments where bird droppings can contaminate sensitive products like car parts, ensuring a clean and safe working environment.

Bird Spikes to Prevent Nesting

Bird Spikes are an effective solution we provide to deter birds from nesting and landing on various structures. Whether it's commercial building signs, building ledges, areas under roof lines, or above downspouts, birds tend to favor a variety of structures for nesting. By installing bird spikes, we effectively prevent birds from landing in these areas. Once birds encounter these spikes, they quickly learn to avoid them and seek alternative nesting sites, minimizing the nuisance of bird infestations on your property.

Bird Spikes
Bird Trapping

Bird Trapping

Bird Trapping becomes necessary when conventional methods are ineffective in removing birds from buildings or rooftops, particularly in cases involving pigeons or birds inside buildings. Our team frequently employs trapping techniques within Costco buildings and on top of commercial structures to effectively capture pigeons. Given the challenges involved, such as the need for multiple traps and frequent baiting, bird trapping is a task best handled by professional bird trappers. Rest assured, our experienced team is equipped to tackle bird trapping with precision and efficiency, ensuring the successful removal of avian pests from your property.

If I do have a bird problem what would it cost me to get rid of them?

Much like bat removal, bird removal or control has no set price. There are many things to take into consideration when pricing for bird control. Inspection of home, number of openings, hardness of job, and amount of nest to remove. Birds nest removal is one of the dirtiest jobs we do, so when pricing bird jobs we take all of this into consideration. A typical residential bird control job may cost anywhere from $400-$800 or more depending on the task at hand. For one single nest removed may cost $100-$200. Large commercial jobs that require netting, spikes, or other repellents could cost a lot more.

The cost of bird control can vary depending on several factors, such as the size of the area that needs to be treated, the type of birds that need to be controlled, and the specific bird control method used. Some common bird control methods include netting, spikes, repellents, and electronic devices.

In general, the cost of bird control can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. For example, bird netting for a small area may cost a few hundred dollars, while a large commercial property with multiple buildings may require a more complex bird control solution that can cost several thousand dollars.

It's best to get a consultation from a bird control professional to determine the specific needs and costs of your situation. Additionally, it's important to consider the long-term benefits of bird control, such as reducing damage and health hazards, when making a decision about the cost.
