Safe & Effective Bird Removal

Unwanted birds can be one of the most frustrating of all wildlife nuisance problems. There are many things to consider when working with birds, including state and federal laws limiting what type of removal methods are permissible, human health risks from bird droppings, hard to reach locations of nests, and noises made from birds nesting in or near a building. Creature Control's technicians have the knowledge and expertise to remove and exclude unwanted birds from your home or business while staying in compliance with protection laws.

Bird Problems?

Almost all of the calls for bird problems deal with six species: starlings, sparrows, pigeons, woodpeckers, chimney swifts and swallows. Businesses spend more money on rodent control than any other pest, but bird control is a close second for trades such as; the airline industry, crop harvesting, fisheries, and retail. Damage caused by birds can vary depending on the type of birds you are dealing with. All birds can cause damage by their droppings, which can contaminate and ruin building materials. Bird droppings in areas frequented by people (parking lots, loading docks, etc.) mean wasted time and money for companies and municipalities who need to pay for the clean-up. Birds will also nest in unwanted areas such as; construction gaps, vent pipes and any niche or opening in a structure.

There are many potential adverse health effects from contact with birds. The dander that birds shed contains tiny scales of dried skin and feathers, and frequently causes allergies in humans if it gets into the circulation of the home. Birds also host a variety of mites, which are microscopic parasites that live on their bodies. It is not uncommon for people or pets who come in contact with birds to get mite infestations that lead to rashes and allergies. Like raccoons and rodents, birds can also transmit histoplasmosis, a fungus that grows in areas contaminated by bird droppings and can cause respiratory problems. Most exposures to bird-borne diseases happen when people contact bird feces; the droppings are considered toxic and are known to carry over 60 diseases. Due to the high risk of biological contamination, it's best to call Creature Control's bird removal experts. We have the training, knowledge, and expertise to handle birds and their bodily extractions safely.

Bird Control Solutions

Creature Control has many tools at our disposal for dealing with your unwanted birds. Sometimes, it is necessary to erect a bird barrier, which may be an exclusionary netting, covering of an opening or “bird spikes” designed to keep birds from loafing on structures. In other situations, an auditory/sonic deterrent is more effective as a bird repellent; this consists of a device that emits sound waves mimicking bird distress calls, leading birds to consider the area unsafe. Visual deterrents, habitat modifications, shock strips, fogging, and motion sensors are also available options.

Our experienced technicians will evaluate your problem and select a customized treatment based on your situation. We have the professionalism to comply will all conservation laws, the specialized equipment to handle birds humanely while protecting your home or business, and the protective gear to keep our staff safe.

Scratching during the day may indicate the presence of a bat, but this is uncommon.

More common sources of scratching or clawing during the day is a squirrel or a yellowjacket hive in the drywall, if it is summer.

A scratching sound coming from the attic is a good indication of the presence of a bat. The scratching may be constant or intermittent and may occur at day or night, though with a bat, this scratching will usually be heard at night. This is the sounds of the claws on the bat's wings as it moves around.

It may also indicate the presence of mice, however. An inspection is necessary to more directly pinpoint the source of the sound.

Gnawing sounds during the day are almost always due to the presence of a rodent, such a mouse, squirrel, chipmunk, or sometimes a rat. Rodents are characterized by their large incisor teeth, which continually grow and must be worn down by constant gnawing. Rodents will gnaw on wires, insulation and anything else they can find in an attic. Many house fires due to electrical problems are caused by damaged wires due to squirrel gnawing.

If you are hearing gnawing or chewing sounds at night, it may indicate the presence of a raccoon. Usually this will be accompanied by other noises, such as heavy walking. If you do not hear this, it may be a flying squirrel or some other rodent.

A "rolling" sound is usually due to the presence of a red squirrel bringing in nuts or other debris and rolling it around up in the attic, as squirrels will use attics to hoard food. If you hear this sound during the day, it is certainly a red squirrel, since red squirrels are the only mammals that commonly get into attics that are active during the day (flying squirrels get into attics as well but they are nocturnal). The "rolling" sound associated with a squirrel is sometimes described as the sound of marbles rolling.

If it is not a squirrel, there's a possibility a rolling sound could be made by birds moving around in a tight space.

Rolling sounds at night can be caused by flying squirrels, which are nocturnal. It is made by the squirrel bringing nuts or other debris into the attic or wall.

Raccoons may also make a rolling sound, though this is less common.

Scampering or scurrying during the day is almost always attributable to a squirrel, as most other scurrying animals (such as mice) are nocturnal.

A scurrying or scampering sound at night is usually due to mice moving through the walls, ceiling, or along the floor.

Nocturnal flying squirrels may make this noise as well; peak periods of activity for flying squirrels are just before dawn and shortly after sunset. Their scurrying is light and fast.

Raccoons may also make this sort of noise, but with a raccoon it will be more of a "walking" sound, a bit heavier than a squirrel, and not as fast.

Heavy walking or crawling is a very unique sound that almost always indicates the presence of a raccoon, whether it occurs during the day or night.

If you can clearly hear the sound of flapping during the day, it is definitely a bird.

If you hear flapping at night, it is either a trapped bird or a bat. Nuisance birds are generally not active at night, so if you hear flapping it may be a bird that has become trapped. The flapping of a bat's wings is very soft, almost like a dull whirring. If you hear a very faint, soft whirring, it may mean a bat is flying around nearby in the dark.

Crackling is a very particular noise that is generally made by a yellowjacket hive within the drywall of your home. yellowjackets will pick and gnaw on drywall and use the pieces to construct their hives. The sound of this gnawing is often described as a crackling; it sounds a lot like Rice Krispies popping. If you hear this, it means the yellowjackets are close to gnawing through the dry wall. It is not as common at night, but certainly can happen then as well if the hive is big enough.

A sound of chirping or chattering usually means there are baby animals present. What species depends on the season, but it is very common for baby squirrels, raccoons, or birds (especially chimney swifts) to make these noises. Please contact Creature Control for a more thorough diagnosis.
