Bird Control


Watching birds float around the sky is one of nature’s most fascinating sights. However, when you have birds roosting on your house or property, you begin to realize they’re not as adorable as they seem from afar.


Many bird species like feral pigeons, house sparrows, common starlings, crows, and gulls are classified as pests because of the havoc they can wreak.


Birds sometimes pick up residence in buildings and they roost in places like beams, attics, warehouses, parking garages, and more. Residential buildings, as well as industrial buildings, in the South Florida area, are commonly disturbed by some of these pest birds. Here are some of the damages they can cause:


Diminishing the structural integrity of a building

The feces of birds are known to be corrosive, which accelerates rust when it comes in contact with metallic surfaces. Woodpeckers, in particular, are known to directly damage wooden structures.

Insulation Damage

One of the seemingly harmless, yet highly destructive problems that birds cause is insulation damage. When birds begin making nests once they are in your attic, they will often use a lot of insulation. In addition, the droppings the birds leave everywhere can also begin to ruin your insulation’s insulative properties. Since insulation is vital to homes, this damage that birds cause can be costing you large sums of money in increased energy bills in the long run. Not to mention, the droppings the birds leave everywhere will stain the insulation and make it smell, potentially spreading bad odors around your home.


Corrosion

One serious problem that birds cause while in attics is the potential for rapid corrosion. Bird droppings are highly corrosive, and while this does not seem like that big of a problem in so
