The strategies we use to protect your home and business from birds focus on protecting your home and vehicles from corrosive bird droppings, preventing the spread of diseases that birds in your home bring, preventing fire hazards and reducing property damage of various kinds.

The Damage Birds Can Cause

Birds may not seem as obvious a pest as raccoons or squirrels, but they can cause harm to you and your home. While some birds are useful to homeowners by eating nearby insects or entertaining you as they splash in a birdbath, an infestation can damage building structures.

Birds cause their own form of pest damage; their ability to fly allows them to soar to hard-to-reach places. If you find signs of bird infestation, have these avian friends removed before they cause further damage.

Birds Clog Gutters

Birds usually build nests in high places (e.g. trees or the roof). Eavestroughs are especially attractive to birds; they often have easy access to fresh water there. Standing water is also a breeding ground for insects. Nests can block water flow and lead to flooding. The extra weight makes the system sag and can damage walls and siding.

Acid Droppings

Bird droppings are highly acidic. Droppings on your roof can decompose roof tar and shingles, allowing moisture to seep inside a home. They can corrode paint on vehicles, motorcycles, and high-rises with decorative exposed decor made of metal.

Danger to Chimneys

Some birds make nests in hollow trees; a chimney is a similar alternative. Blocking a chimney causes smoke and carbon monoxide to back up into your home. Nests are also made of flammable materials, making them potential fire hazards if a stray spark reaches one.

Birds Block Vents

If a nest is built in your roof vent, it will block proper air flow to the attic. This leads to buildup of moisture on the upper floor, causing support beams to rot and encouraging mould growth.

Birds Scavenge Attics

If birds have an entry point into your attic, they can start scavenging for materials amongst stored belongings or tearing up walls. Birds may use insulation for nesting material, removing a home’s protection and increasing your energy cost. Nests in an attic are fire hazards. Birds can also create a home noise problem as well.

Some Birds Carry Diseases and Parasites

Bird droppings can be a source of germs that carry disease to humans and pets, especially if birds nest around vents or the chimney. Birds can also carry parasites (e.g. fleas, mites, or ticks) that may spread to those who reside inside a home.

Birds are Destructive

If you’ve spent a great deal of time on the appearance of your house, birds can spoil it. Bird droppings on your car or paved surfaces are unsightly, and indirect damage to walls and siding will make a house look worn.
