Removing Bird Pests: Sparrows, Starlings, Pigeons in NY and NJ

Bird Pests

WHO RULES YOUR ROOST?

Bird droppings can cause slippery walking conditions, increasing your risk of work-related accidents. You building exterior is also at risk. Bird droppings are corrosive and will eat away at building finishes causing costly repairs and additional maintenance.
Know that a few birds can eventually turn into infestations. Birds stick together and are very persistent once they settle in. Our Integrated Pest Management Specialists can help rid your home or business of a bird infestation safely and effectively – getting you back to your normal, daily routine.

Methods to Deter Birds Include the Following:

  • Bird spikes – these limit the places that birds can nest, can be installed discreetly and are effective in preventing further nesting
  • Bird nets – netting that can cover up the potential nesting places
  • Bird wire – a wire grid that is similar to bird netting that will cause the birds to find other places to make their homes.
  • Electronic deterrents – devices that will deliver electric shocks to the birds, causing discomfort and encouraging them to move elsewhere.
  • The Problem with Pigeons: Biology and behavior

    Pigeons inhabit lofts, church steeples, attics, caves and ornate architectural features of buildings where openings and flat surfaces allow roosting, loafing and nest building. Nests consist of sticks, twigs and grasses clumped together to form a crude platform.

    The birds subsist on spilled or improperly stored grain, garbage or other food materials people provide for them intentionally or unintentionally. In some urban areas, feeding pigeons is a form of recreation.

    Pigeons are monogamous, having only one mate at a time, and pigeon populations usually have an equal number of males and females. The male cares for and guards the female and the nest. Eight to 12 days after mating, the female lays one or two eggs. About 18 days later, the eggs hatch. The young pigeons, or squabs, are fed a secreted substance called pigeon milk and leave the nest at 4 to 6 weeks of age. More eggs are usually laid before the first young have left the nest. Breeding occurs throughout the year, but peak reproduction is in the spring and fall.

    Domesticated pigeons can live 15 or more years. However, in urban populations, few pigeons live for more than three or four years.

    Sinclair is the person assigned to the building I'm living in and he is excellent! He makes sure I have everything I need to combat the ever growing rodent issues in NYC. He even helped get the heat turned on in my building when we didn't have any.

    Sinclair did a great job at our house! We had the beginnings of a mouse migration into the house, and UltraPro has been very responsive. Above all, their treatment is working, and it seems that the problem is pretty much solved.
