Humane Bird Removal & Exclusion

Why Do You Need Bird Control?

Birds can be an elegant part of our commonplace surroundings, but that beauty can be corrupted by populations of nuisance birds. Nuisance birds can and will damage homes and property with their droppings, spreading disease. Every year industries spend thousands of dollars on mending the damage caused by birds and clearing the clutter created by their droppings. The financial implications of this ongoing nuisance are far more expensive than periodic property maintenance. When birds nest and roost in commercial and residential facilities, they can pose some serious liability like accidental falls, unsanitary conditions, electrical fires, and major structural damage. Bird droppings are highly acidic and have the ability to cause irreparable damage to vital equipment, rooftops, walkways, and everything from paint, to cement, to wood, and other materials associated with buildings.

Why Do You Need Bird Control Services?

Although birds may be viewed affectionately in general, most people do not understand the serious property and health risks associated with pest birds' presence.

Bird droppings, nesting materials, and parasites often lead to damage and disease. Pest birds such as pigeons, starlings, and sparrows are responsible for millions of dollars of property damage each year. Birds roost on ledges, signs, cornices, rooftops, and other man-made structures, resulting in destroyed equipment, clogged vents, and reduced property value.

The uric acid in bird feces is highly corrosive and can cause extensive damage by eating through paint, roofing materials and even some metal surfaces.

Northern Flicker

The Northern Flicker is a com­mon woodpecker and year-round Mon­tana resident. The off-white belly has dark spots, and a black crescent marks the chest. A flying flicker can be easily identified by its flashing white rump. Vivid colors be­neath the wings and tail readily identify it as either the red-shafted (western) or yellow-shafted (eastern) subspecies. The yellow-shafted has a brown rather than a gray face and a red crescent on the neck nape. Males are distinguished from females by their red (red-shafted subspecies) or black (yellow-shafted subspecies) "mustache" stripe. Flickers are 12 to 13 inches long.

European Starlings

European Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) are robin-sized birds about 8½ inches long from head to the end of their short tail. Their coloration varies with the season. During the spring and summer, starlings display an iridescent black coloration and a bright yellow bill. In the fall and winter, the tips of the feathers whiten giving the bird a speckled appearance and the bill turns more brownish (Figure 1). Starlings have several calls including the ability to mimic those of other birds

Methods of Control:Management of bird conflicts is best accomplished by removing potential nesting, feeding, and roosting areas before starlings use them. Initiate these efforts before birds become attached to the location as once problems with starlings occur, control becomes more difficult.>

"Andy is amazing and so is CJ. What nice guys, and incredibly thorough with their work! We had a bat issue and were desperate to get them OUT. Well, out they are! It was SO satisfying to watch the last few bats get evicted. Bye, felicia! This was the ONLY pest service who seemed SANE when telling us about the bats. others told us to LIVE HAPPILY with bats peeing and pooping all over our new home. No thanks!"


"Spoke to Nate and he gave some fabulous advice on trapping mice. If I can not get rid of them, I will call back for an appointment. Thank you so much Nate for the help. Bless you."


"As many others have shared, the people that work here are knowledgeable, skillful and just great people. Andy, the wildlife biologist, not only knew immediately what our problem was ( sparrows) but took care of it. He is also a very friendly guy to talk to. Thanks and I wholeheartedly recommend them"
