We can bird-proof virtually any building of any size ranging from private homes to the steeples of historic churches, to huge power-generating facilities. We’ve bird-proofed some of the biggest buildings in Georgia, including some at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport — the busiest airport in the world.
Truth be told, there’s no bird control job too big for Rid-A-Critter to handle. But we do small bird control jobs, too; and we treat every job with the same level of care and professionalism. All of our clients are VIPs, and we insist on the same standards of excellence in every job we do.
When it comes to safeguarding your home and property against nuisance bird species, it’s crucial to have effective bird control services at your disposal. Birds, while beautiful to observe, can cause a variety of problems for homeowners. From the incessant cooing and chirping that disrupt your peace to the potential diseases they can spread, birds can transform from marvels to menaces in no time. At Rid-A-Critter, we understand the nuances of bird problems and specialize in bird exclusion techniques that ensure your property remains free from these winged intruders.
Exclusion is at the heart of our bird control strategy. By installing barriers or seals, we prevent birds from accessing prime real estate on your property, such as eaves, vents, and ledges. This proactive approach minimizes the need for recurrent bird removal, saving you time and the hassle of dealing with ongoing bird issues. In conjunction with exclusion, we also provide property maintenance advice to make your home less attractive to birds seeking a new habitat.
Comprehensive Bird Exclusion and Removal for Georgia & Alabama Residents
Many “bird exterminators” use chemical poisons to kill or repel birds. Some of these products are lethal toxicants that kill birds, while others are intended to just make the birds dizzy or sick. The hope is that they’ll associate the sickness with the place, and fly away somewhere else. But many of these sickened and disoriented birds die when they fly into buildings or moving vehicles, and others are attacked and killed by predators while the chemicals disable them.
The other problem with bird control that relies on chemicals and poisons is that it just doesn’t work very well. The results are temporary, at best. Sooner or later, new birds will move in and replace the ones that were exterminated. Our bird control program is different. Unlike the bird poisoning performed by most “bird exterminators” in Georgia, our non-chemical bird control techniques provide lasting control. In addition, our methods won’t result in sick birds flying into trucks on the highway or dead birds dropping out of the sky.
Our earth-friendly bird control approach includes:
- Repairing structural holes and gaps that allow birds to get into attics, lofts, and other interior parts of buildings.
- Installing bird netting and/or bird-repellant spikes are humane ways to bird-proof buildings and prevent birds from roosting on them.
- Bird trapping may be used to remove birds already in the building.
- Nesting materials, droppings, feathers, and so forth are meticulously removed to prevent health hazards from bird-borne pathogens.
- Chimney caps may be installed (or existing ones repaired) to keep birds and animals out of chimneys.
Bird Mess Cleanup
Our bird control service also includes cleaning up after the birds once they are removed. We clean up bird droppings, feathers, and the rest of the mess the birds create in order to eliminate the health hazards that these bird by-products present to humans, domestic animals, and wildlife. Bird droppings contain microorganisms that can cause serious diseases like histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis.
Dry Under Decks Installation
We also offer Dry Under Decks installation either as an added bird or animal control service or as a standalone service. Dry Under Decks is a water-management and rain-carrying system that allows the space under your deck to be used as a clean, dry, bright outdoor space.
The Dry Under Decks system is installed under the joists of your existing deck. Once installed, it catches the rainwater that falls through the gaps in the decking (as well as any condensation), and safely channels the water away to a gutter or downspout, reclaiming the area under the deck for use as an outdoor dining area porch, reading area, or whatever else your heart desires. It also prevents spilled drinks from dripping down onto the heads of the people underneath, and the bright finish brightens up and beautifies any outdoor area. This heavy-duty product not only provides additional outdoor living space; it excludes birds and other small animals and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. If you need help removing birds and keeping them out of your home or business, give us a call today.
We’re experts in bird trapping, leveraging our deep understanding of bird behaviors and habitats to capture and relocate birds without harm. Bird nests, often built in undesirable locales like vents or eaves, are handled with care, ensuring the safety of the birds and the integrity of your property. Our services extend beyond simple removal; we engage in comprehensive bird-proofing to deter future avian visitors from making themselves at home on your premises.
Diseases can be a significant concern with pest bird populations, as their droppings and nesting materials can harbor a variety of pathogens. As part of our bird control measures, we prioritize the health and safety of our clients, addressing these sanitary risks professionally. Another aspect of our bird control strategy is mitigating the damage that birds can cause. They can peck at the structure, block gutters with their nests, and leave unsightly and corrosive droppings that affect the aesthetic and structural integrity of buildings.
Nuisance Bird Removal Services: Safe and Effective Solutions for Bird Control
Birds become pests when they create a physical or health hazard or when they damage or deface property. Some ways in which this happens are:
- Large numbers of birds near airports cause a hazard to air travel.
- Birds deface buildings, monuments, and vehicles and cause costly damage with their droppings.
- Birds and their feathers can get caught in building ventilation equipment, dryer vents, exhaust fans, and HVAC ducts, sometimes causing damage to the equipment and spreading germs and allergens throughout the building.
- The droppings of many birds contain pathogens that cause several serious diseases, such as histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and avian flu.
- Ectoparasites living or feeding on birds can transmit several serious diseases including West Nile virus and other arboviral encephalitides.
At Rid-A-Critter, we understand that birds, while beautiful and essential for our ecosystem, can sometimes become a serious nuisance for homeowners and businesses alike. Our bird removal services are tailored to address a wide array of bird problems, ensuring your home remains safe, clean, and free from the damage caused by these winged visitors.
Birds like pigeons, starlings, and sparrows are not just a minor inconvenience; their nests can block gutters, their droppings can damage property, and their presence can lead to health problems. Whether you’re dealing with a solitary bird nest tucked away in an eave or a full-blown infestation across various areas of your property, our bird control experts are equipped with the right bird traps and exclusion techniques to remedy the situation. We employ the most humane and effective strategies for bird control, ensuring that the birds are removed safely without harm. Moreover, by opting for professional bird control services, you are choosing a way to not only solve your current bird problems but also to prevent future issues.
Bird Exclusion Techniques: Preventing Bird Intrusions and Protecting Your Home
When it comes to protecting your property from the pesky presence of nuisance bird species, bird exclusion techniques are the first line of defense. Here at Rid-A-Critter, we understand the importance of deterring birds in a manner that is safe for both the birds and the people who reside in the affected areas. Bird-proofing your home is about creating barriers to entry, ensuring that these feathered visitors cannot roost or nest where they’re not wanted.
Bird nets are a highly effective way of keeping birds at bay. By covering potential nesting or roosting sites, these nets prevent birds from accessing areas where they can cause damage. Spikes, on the other hand, act as a physical deterrent, making surfaces uncomfortable for birds to land on. This method of bird control is particularly useful in urban settings where pigeons and other bird species commonly congregate. Bird traps can also be a component of a strategic bird control program. These traps are used to capture and relocate birds safely without causing harm.
Installation of bird nest deterrents is a critical aspect of bird exclusion. Our team at Rid-A-Critter focuses on identifying the best locations to install deterrents to prevent birds from establishing nests in the first place. It’s not just about the immediate remedy; it’s about ensuring a long-lasting solution to bird problems on your property. Moreover, we take into consideration the migratory patterns and behavior of different bird species to customize our bird exclusion strategies effectively.
If you’re faced with bird problems at your home, don’t wait for the damage and risk of diseases to escalate. Contact Rid-A-Critter today for top-notch bird exclusion and bird-proofing services that ensure your property is well-protected against bird species that have overstayed their welcome.
