During a couple times a year the birds will come to your home during mating season. You will hear pecking on gutters to alert other woodpeckers they are in the area.

Barn Swallow

Swallow Control

Swallows are a protected bird here in Michigan. They make mud nest on the side of homes, barns, above doorways and on commercial buildings. Because they are a protected bird, you are not allowed to remove their nest if it has eggs or young. The best way for control of swallows is to use deterrents such as intimidater reflectors, fishing line, reflectors, hawk or owl decoys, etc. The use of traps or bird gels is prohibited in Michigan. Once they have left the nest you must remove the nest and clean it thoroughly. Painting the area often works best.

Bird Control Solutions- How to Get Rid of Birds

Bird removal is much like bat removal. Find the entry point and nesting area. Install a one way exclusion device.  Cone shaped tubes work great, or bird netting is effective as well. Just like bat removal its always important to seal off any other potential entry points on the home.  If you can get to the nest its very important to remove it. Sometimes this requires removing the whole soffit or remove the nest under the gable in the attic.

We specialize in bird removal and bird control. We can prevent birds from getting into your home, attic, fireplace, and vents by doing all of the necessary repairs. Flashing eaves, screening gable vents, capping chimneys, fixing soffits, bird netting and capping exhaust vents. Below are solutions we use to get rid of birds and keep them out.

Birds in a Bathroom or Dryer Vent

A lot of our bird removal or control calls come because the home owner has noticed birds in the bathroom or dryer vent.  Either they smell dead birds or see them fly in and out.  We often have to remove the nest from inside the attic, but sometimes we can remove and sanitize the nesting area from out doors.  We cap all of our bathroom vents with the appropriate cap or screen to allow for good ventilation.

Birds in Loading Docks- Bird Netting Jobs

For birds nesting in rafters in loading docks and other open structures, may require bird netting to exclude and keep the birds out. We have been to Costco and other car part manufacturing companies to install bird netting for bird control. This requires every last square inch to be sealed off or the birds will find an opening. For this job the bird droppings were getting all over the car parts.

Bird Spikes and Optical Gel to Prevent Nesting

We have been to several homes and buildings to prevent birds from nesting and landing on structures. Birds like to nest on all types of structures like commercial building signs, building ledges, under roof lines, and above down spouts. Installing bird spikes or optical gel will prevent birds from landing in these areas. Once the birds learn about these spikes they will fly away and move to other structures for nesting.

Bird Trapping

Sometimes the only solutions to getting rid of birds from a building or rooftop is to set traps. This is typical for pigeons or birds in buildings. We often have to set traps inside of Costco buildings and on top of commercial buildings to trap pigeons. We typically have to set multiple traps or re-bait the traps several times in order to catch all of the birds. Bird trapping can be difficult and usually done by a professional bird trapper.

Bird Nest Clean-Up- Attic Restoration

Birds can nest in all types of areas. Your attic is a main area birds like to nest. In doing so they bring in all sorts of material like straw, hay, garbage, etc. Birds are dirty pest and their droppings contain bacteria and fungi. These contaminated nest in you attic can be a major health issue for humans. One of our specialties is attic restoration. Includes clean-up, sanitizing and adding insulation.

Bird Repellents

Bird repellents or bird gels are often used to prevent birds from roosting or nesting. Areas where bird spikes can not be installed we use bird gel so it can not be seen. We like to use 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 on homes and buildings.

Bird Deterrents

Bird deterrents such as scary eye balloons, predator decoys, Irri-Tape and laser products are all good to keep birds off of structures. We typically use these for areas we can not install bird spikes or put down bird gel. These work good especially for stucco and wood sided homes. Birds create holes all over the house and the only way to keep them off is to install bird deterrents.
