Removing Birds from Your Premises

Dealing with unwanted birds can be one of the most frustrating wildlife pest issues for homes and businesses. It’s essential to consider state and federal laws that specify permissible methods for bird removal on top of identifying human health risks, hard-to-reach nests, and common bird noises. Creature Control employs expert technicians who have the knowledge and expertise to remove unwanted birds efficiently and adequately from your premises.

Problematic Birds

Six species of birds are generally known to be problematic within homes, businesses, and airfields: chimney swifts, pigeons, sparrows, starlings, swallows, and woodpeckers. While rodent control is the most predominant form of pest control, bird control is a close second. Airlines, farms, fisheries, and retail buildings all benefit from bird remediation. Birds nest in unwanted areas such as construction gaps, vent pipes, and nearly any structure openings. They are mainly insectivores but will also eat small fruits and seeds.

Damage from bird problems can vary depending upon the type of species you are dealing with. Woodpeckers, a common nuisance bird in Colorado, cause damage to wood siding by their continuous pecking, while starlings destroy fruit trees. Any bird can cause damage with its acidic droppings, which will contaminate and ruin building materials over time. An accumulation of bird droppings and dander in parking lots, loading docks, and walkways means more time and money spent for companies and municipalities who pay for the cleanup. Special health and safety measures need to be in place when cleaning large amounts of bird excrement as it may contain several diseases such as Histoplasmosis and Ornithosis. When dried, the droppings may become airborne and cause respiratory difficulties as well. For safe and humane bird removal, call the professionals at Creature Control today.

Deterrence and Bird Solutions

The technicians at Creature Control have the training and proven strategies to deal with unwanted birds. From bird barriers, which consist of exclusionary netting covering an opening to “bird spikes” designed to keep them from nesting within retail signs and other warm, tucked-away structures. Certain circumstances call for an auditory/ultrasonic deterrent which emits sound waves mimicking bird distress calls. These specialized noises signal that the area is unsafe. Other methods for bird remediation include visual deterrents, habitat modifications, fogging, shock strips, and motion sensors.

If you have a bird issue, contact the experts at Creature Control to evaluate and treat the area accurately. We abide by all conservation laws, using special equipment to manage birds humanely and effectively.

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.
