Many New Hampshire residents enjoy bird-watching in nature, but when bird-watching comes too close to your home, the birds quickly become a nuisance. Birds that pose an issue for New Hampshire homeowners are mostly pigeons, sparrows, woodpeckers, gulls and starlings. If you spot any of these pest birds on your roof or in your chimney, call Critter Control of New Hampshire today or contact us through our online form!
Keeping Birds Out of Your Home
Some birds are protected by law in New Hampshire. Others, like many of the aforementioned species, are not. It is your technician's job to know the ins and outs of these laws for safe and legal bird removal.
Most Problematic Birds in New Hampshire
Many of these birds are difficult to get rid of because once they've found a spot to nest, they are staying put. Pigeons, sparrows, woodpeckers, gulls and starlings are all destructive in different ways and will require professional bird control. The following pest bird situations that require bird control and bird-proofing include:
- A diet of agricultural products and crops
- Roosting or nesting on and around human-inhabited areas like roofs or attics
- Raucous behavior, lots of feces and feathers
- Diseases or ectoparasites affecting man including histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis
- Unpleasant or hazardous working conditions
Effective Bird-Proofing Methods
These birds are considered pests for a reason, including their difficult-to-reach nests and the ability to escape through flight. The most effective long-term bird control is discouraging them from wanting to land, through use of scare tactics and deterrents. Long-term bird prevention will encourage more than just bird deterrents, however. Critter Control of New Hampshire will work with you to bird proof your property in a humane method with a bird control plan. We use other bird deterrents in rural and agricultural settings for bird control. For more information on bird control and bird proofing, please contact us. We can help you get rid of bird problems.
