It’s nice to wake up to the sweet sound of birds chirping in the morning. But when that chirping escalates into deafening noise, you might have a bird problem!
Bird damage to your home or business can escalate very quickly, and if left unchecked, it can cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in repairs. But you don’t have to let it get that far. In today’s blog post, Animal Remover helps you understand three major warning signs that your home or commercial business needs bird control services.
Increased Birds Around Your Property
Usually, birds, like pigeons, sparrows, or finches, will nest in trees and bushes near your property before moving onto your home or building’s structure. If you’re noticing constant flocks of birds and bird nests in the trees and bushes nearby, you’ll want to keep a close eye on your building. If you see some of the birds starting to build nests on your property or congregating on your roof, it’s time to call for pest control.
Nest Material and Droppings
Maybe you hadn’t noticed the increased number of birds near your property, and now you’re spotting them perched on your roof and nesting on or inside your home or building. Birds frequently like to nest in or on:
- Chimney stacks
- Culverts (industrial drains)
- Soffits (overhangs on your home)
You might notice nest material falling onto the ground or increased droppings on your roof, siding, or windows. Droppings can be a huge health hazard to your family or customers–the avian flu can be transmitted to humans and is deadly.

Damage to Your Property
Hopefully, you can call on an expert for bird control before these pests cause damage to your building, but sometimes it is far too late. Birds can cause severe damage to your property from pecking or their feces. Signs of bird damage include:
- Small holes in your siding
- Damage to roof shingles
- Roof corrosion from bird droppings
- Clogged drains, gutters, and vents
- Missing insulation
- Damaged window screens
How to Mitigate and Prevent Bird Damage
Luckily, there are several effective ways to get rid of unwanted birds and prevent further damage. Your bird control experts will discuss the options that work best for your home or business. Ways to prevent and control birds include:
- Mesh netting in nearby trees or bushes: to prevent nesting
- Bird spikes on your home or business: to prevent perching and nesting
- Shock track: provides non-lethal electric shock deterrent
- Bird Gel: sticky substance to prevent birds from landing on your building
