How Our Bird Control Services Work

At Relief Pest Control, our Bird Control process is meticulous and aimed at offering lasting solutions. When you contact us for bird removal, here’s what you can expect:

  1. Initial Consultation and Site Inspection

First, we’ll have an in-depth consultation to understand the extent of the bird infestation. Following this, our team will inspect the site to identify problem areas, the presence of bird feeders, or any other factors attracting the birds.

  1. Identification of Bird Species and Problem Areas

Different species of birds require varied removal plans. We identify the specific species causing the issue and mark the problem areas. This step is crucial for understanding the habits of the birds indigenous to the area and the best practice for bird removal.

  1. Development of a Custom Removal Strategy

Based on the species identified and problem areas, we develop a tailored strategy. This may include deterrents such as bird spikes or electric pulses, depending on the severity and nature of the infestation.

  1. Safe and Humane Bird Capture

Our primary goal is to ensure that birds are captured safely and humanely. We avoid any harm and use techniques that prioritize the well-being of the birds.

  1. Relocation and Release of Captured Birds

Once captured, the birds are relocated to a more suitable environment where they won’t pose a threat to properties. This is a common practice in urban wildlife management.

  1. Installation of Deterrents and Preventative Measures

To prevent future infestations, we install deterrents such as bird netting, scare devices, and spike strips. We also recommend screening decks and proofing for roof vents. This step ensures that your property remains bird-free.

Bird FAQ

Understanding the nuances of bird removal is essential for every property owner. To help you make an informed decision, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions and their detailed answers.

What is bird removal, and why is it necessary?

Bird removal refers to the process of safely and humanely relocating nuisance birds from properties where they pose a threat or disturbance. Birds can be a significant concern for property owners for several reasons. Unsightly bird droppings can damage structures, lead to unsanitary conditions, and even spread diseases. Nests can block essential systems or pose fire hazards. Additionally, the presence of birds can lead to noise disturbances, especially in the early morning hours. Proper bird removal ensures a cleaner, safer, and quieter environment.

How does the bird removal process work?

The bird removal process begins with an in-depth site inspection to understand the extent of the bird infestation and identify the species involved. Based on this assessment, a custom strategy is developed, which can include capturing and relocating the birds, installing deterrents, and implementing preventive measures. The approach is always humane, ensuring the birds’ safety and well-being. Regular monitoring and adjustments are made to ensure the effectiveness of the removal and prevent future infestations.

What types of birds are commonly removed from properties?

Several species of birds can become nuisance pests on properties. Some of the most common include pigeons, sparrows, starlings, and crows. Pigeon droppings, in particular, are a significant concern due to their acidity and potential to damage structures. Identifying the specific species causing the issue is crucial, as different birds have varied behaviours and may require different removal and prevention strategies.

Are the bird removal methods humane?

Absolutely. All bird removal methods employed by Relief Pest Control prioritize the safety and well-being of the birds. We avoid causing any harm and use techniques that are safe and considerate of the bird’s health. Captured birds are relocated to suitable environments where they can thrive without posing a threat to properties.

How long does the bird removal process typically take?

The duration of the bird removal process can vary based on the extent of the infestation, the species of birds involved, and the size of the property. Generally, small infestations can be addressed within a day, while larger or more complex situations may take several days to weeks. Regular monitoring and adjustments might be required to ensure that the birds don’t return.

Is there a specific season when bird removal is most needed?

Bird removal can be necessary throughout the year; however, spring and early summer are peak times due to nesting seasons. During these periods, birds seek out safe places to build nests and lay eggs, often choosing locations on properties. This can lead to increased bird activity and the associated problems, making it a common time for homeowners and businesses to seek bird removal services.

What are the risks of not removing unwanted birds from a property?

Ignoring a bird infestation can lead to several problems. The accumulation of bird droppings can damage structures and create unsanitary conditions. Bird nests, especially in air vents or chimneys, can pose fire risks. Additionally, birds can spread diseases, attract other pests, and create noise disturbances. Without proper bird removal, these issues can escalate, leading to more significant damage and higher costs in the long run.

How do you prevent birds from returning after removal?

Preventing birds from returning after removal is essential. At Relief Pest Control, we implement various preventive measures such as installing bird spikes, bird netting, and scare devices. Additionally, modifications like screening decks, proofing for roof vents, and removing food sources can deter birds from returning. Regular monitoring and making necessary adjustments to deterrents ensure that birds stay away.

Is bird removal safe for the environment?

Yes, bird removal is designed to be safe for the environment. Relief Pest Control employs environmentally-friendly methods to ensure that no harm is caused to the surroundings. Our techniques prioritize the well-being of the birds while ensuring that the local ecosystems remain undisturbed. We avoid chemicals or any harmful substances that could negatively impact the environment.

What are the costs associated with bird removal services?

The costs of bird removal services can vary based on several factors, including the size of the property, the extent of the infestation, the species of birds involved, and the preventive measures required. While it’s difficult to provide a blanket price, it’s always recommended to consult with experienced professionals like Relief Pest Control for a detailed quote. Investing in quality bird removal services can save property owners from future expenses related to damages and recurring infestations.

Can I attempt bird removal on my own, or should I hire a professional?

While some homeowners might be tempted to attempt bird removal on their own, it’s a task best left to experienced professionals. Improper removal techniques can harm the birds, cause further damages, or result in incomplete removal, allowing the birds to return. Professionals have the tools, knowledge, and experience to handle bird removal efficiently and humanely, ensuring long-term results.

What precautions are taken to ensure the safety of other animals during the removal process?

During the bird removal process, various precautions are taken to ensure the safety of other animals. We avoid methods that could harm or disturb pets or wildlife. Our techniques are targeted specifically at the nuisance birds, ensuring that other animals on the property remain safe and unaffected. This includes careful placement of deterrents, humane capture methods, and ensuring no trace elements that could be harmful to other animals are left behind.

How do I identify if the birds on my property are protected species?

Canada is home to several protected bird species. Before any removal process, it’s essential to identify the birds correctly. If you’re unsure, consult with experts like Relief Pest Control. We have the knowledge to distinguish between common nuisance birds and protected species. If protected birds are identified, specific guidelines and regulations need to be followed to ensure their safety and well-being.

What certifications should a bird removal company have?

A reputable bird removal company should have certifications from recognized industry bodies, showcasing their expertise and commitment to ethical and humane practices. This might include certifications in wildlife removal, pest control, and other related areas. Additionally, they should be compliant with local and national regulations regarding wildlife removal and management.

Can you provide references or reviews from previous customers who used your bird removal services?

Certainly, a trustworthy bird removal company should be able to provide references or reviews from satisfied customers.
