The Top 4 Maine bird problems
#1 - Pigeons
You like birds and other animals? Sure, but do you like pigeons nesting around your home?
Pigeon problems are obvious, such as constantly leaving messes, making loud cooing sounds and in general, leaving droppings around that could potentially spread disease. Hearing them sitting above you on your roof is very annoying!
So, how you do you get rid of pigeons on your roof or anywhere around your place, you ask? Easy, contact MWS!
#2 - Sparrows - House and Barn
Swallows eat large quantities of insects which is useful, but often become pests themselves by building numerous nests on your home .
Swallow nests deface and damage properties, and the birds’ droppings that result under the nests cause health concerns.
Contact MWS and we’ll tell you how we can make sure these pests don’t return.
#3 - Starlings
Starlings can be one of the least wanted Maine backyard birds but also one of the most difficult to get rid of.
But what makes these birds – which are energetic, adaptable and sociable – so undesirable? They are noisy, they tend to flock, they are agressive and they prefer grassy habitats like your lawn.
For the best results, MWS use a variety of techniques to discourage starlings. Contact Us and we’ll deal with this annoying Maine bird.
#4 - Woodpeckers
Don’t you just love the tapping noise a woodpecker is making on your homes cedar shakes or when the silly bird is pecking away at some metal on the side of your home? We doubt it.
If you’ve ever had a woodpecker decide that it likes to make holes on some part of your house, or your favorite tree, you know how hard it is to stop them.
MWS have the ability to determine why Woody the Woodpecker is so attracted to your property or favorite tree. Give us a call and let us help.
Bird Problems In Maine
So What’s The Big Deal?
MWS Is Here To Explain!
Your Health And Birds
The biggest issue associated with birds is their waste or guano since it can carry pathogens that can affect human health. Once in a home or building birds can bring in nesting material that can become large accumulations over time and this generally gets mixed with their waste. Pest birds in Maine can also carry insect pests such as bird mites, fleas, lice and ticks which can come inside the living quarters of the home. It’s just plain unhealthy to allow birds to live in the eaves or attics of a home. We encounter many bathroom or dryer vents that become clogged with bird nesting material as well.
Bird poop , waste or guano and associated diseases
This is where the birds can really make a “mess .” Unfortunately our feathered friends do not have very good manners when it comes to depositing their feces. Their poop and the accumulation of it can deface buildings. The most common diseases associated with Maine bird droppings are histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis,
Bird control solutions
The steps to resolving a bird problem will be a case by case solution. But, if the birds are getting inside an attic or the eaves of a home or possibly a bathroom vent then the process is pretty straight forward.
- The birds are removed physically or by using one way netting.
- The access holes where the birds gain entrance to the home are wired off or excluded.
- Any waste and nesting material should be disinfected and removed.
