Problems Caused By Birds

            There a wide variety of problems that can be caused by birds. The most common problem that homeowners will face with birds is a bird making its nest on or around your roof. This can lead to your roof being covered in bird poop and the noise of the birds becoming cumbersome. There are a few methods that can be taken to prevent bird-associated problems. The most common methods we’ll use are:

  • Bird spikes, pieces of plastic or metal that stick straight up making it uncomfortable for the birds.
  • Shock tracks, similar to bird spikes, but using electricity to provide a small shock to landing birds.

            Birds can create more issues than the ones that were stated above. Birds such as woodpeckers are known to peck on gutters thinking that it’s wood. Though, no, this doesn’t do damage to the house, it creates a loud noise that can become a nuisance. Birds may also enter your house accidentally by flying through an open window. This can harm or kill the bird.

What Happens If A Bird Gets Into The Attic

Though in most cases birds won’t create issues a bird that manages to fly into your attic and make a nest will create some major problems. If there’s a bird in your attic, it’s almost guaranteed that there are babies in the nest along with it. This creates a more complicated situation as the birds are likely to be defensive and protect their babies. This also creates a mess in the attic due to the process that it takes to create a nest. Birds will also leave behind their waste products. This can quickly create an unhealthy environment in your attic.

 When removing birds, the first step is to remove the baby birds if they are present. Once the babies are safely removed, there are two options. The first option is to place a one-way exclusion trap to prevent the parents from returning to the attic. The bird will be captured, ensuring that the adults and babies can be reunited, and the birds won’t be separated. The other option is to trap and remove the bird inside the attic using a cage.

When we trap a bird, we ensure that we follow all regulations laid down by the state of Michigan. We will determine the type of cage that we use based on the situation we find ourselves in. We ensure that the birds will be safely removed without harm being done to them.



Cleaning Up After The Birds

            Our team will perform a thorough check of the area once the birds are removed. We will document the damage done to the attic as well as what we cleaned up. The entrance that the bird used will be closed to ensure that the bird does not return. Any damage done to the home due to the infestation will also be repaired. The area will be cleaned thoroughly, assuring that diseases cannot be spread and any smell won’t linger. We will also give advice on how to prevent future infestations.
