Do you have nuisance birds that are causing you headaches? At Northern Colorado Pest and Wildlife Control we have extensive experience working with some of the most common nuisance birds in the area. Your search for “bird removal near me” is over.
The Migratory Bird Treaty Act
The most common call we get is for pigeons, starlings, sparrows, northern flickers (woodpeckers) and barn and cliff swallows. Did you know that all birds are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act except for pigeons, starlings and sparrows? This act provides protection for migratory birds and it prevents the destruction of their nests and prevents the sell of the bird parts, nest or eggs. There are numerous techniques to mitigate a bird problem. Some examples include exclusion, netting, deterrents, trapping, repellents and noise makers. It’s important to understand the birds and why they are there in hopes of figuring out something that will keep them away.
The Most Reliable Mitigation Effort
The most reliable mitigation effort is always exclusion or netting. This will keep the birds permanently out of any area sealed off. It may sound simple and, in some cases, it is but exclusion is typically the most labor-intensive solution and therefore the most expensive option available. Trapping can be an excellent mitigation option when talking about woodpeckers. To be able to trap you need a permit from the USFWS United States Fish and Wildlife Service because they are a protected bird species. We can also trap for sparrows and pigeons. There are also a multitude of different deterrents and repellents on the market and they each have a unique purpose. These mitigation efforts can work great if done properly, while others may only offer short-term relief. Noise makers are generally not effective in our experience but sometimes it is worth a try.

Your Search For Bird Removal Near Me Is Over
Understand that bird jobs can be quite challenging. The birds never nest in an easy to reach area. They always nest up high and in the most difficult to reach area possible. Birds are also difficult to work with because of how smart they are, especially pigeons. There should always be something that can be done to help mitigate a bird problem. It just might not be affordable, or aesthetically pleasing. There generally is not a quick fix for birds but every now and then we get lucky. Another problem with birds is the ectoparasites that they might bring with them. If you have ever had a bird nest on your house, you may have been unlucky enough to have bird mites or swallow bugs. These insects bite and feed off your blood like a mosquito. Do not worry as these birds ectoparasites are easily treated and neutralized once the birds are gone.
