Pigeons

Feral pigeons are descendants of European homing pigeons. They are not afraid of humans therefore, make their homes in close proximity. Food sources, such as garbage are a huge attraction for them. This is why they are often found in the streets where there is garbage, especially near restaurants. They like tall buildings and settle on roofs, gutters and balconies.

They cause destruction when they lift roofing to force an entry.

House Sparrows

House sparrows are the most common birds in the US. They are also called English sparrows and are a part of the weaver finch family. House sparrows will nest just about anywhere both in and around residential and commercial properties.

They next and roost in flocks. In residential areas, they can be found on the streets, in yards and in gardens. When it comes to commercial properties, they are commonly found around zoos, airport hangers, stadiums and warehouses. 

They damage poultry and livestock operations. Their nests are messy as they are constructed in roofs, gutters,  shrubs, trees, inside buildings, and within commercial electrical signs, billboards, and around power lines which is a grave danger therefore making this type of bird removal and control vital.

Starlings

Starlings are common birds that nest and congregate in large flocks and making loud noises around properties. They come in a wide array of sizes and colors. They are a member of the sturnidae family of birds.

Their large numbers become a nuisance, as they prefer to return to the same spot every year.

Starlings cause damage with their nests, droppings and waste. The nests can attract parasites and the droppings and waste can pose a health risk to humans and pets.

Woodpeckers

Woodpeckers typically peck at diseased or dead trees, however, they also peck at the siding of homes and commercial buildings, fences and air conditioning units.

They peck to find food, excavate to build nests and store their food.

The damage to these structures is from the holes they make.

Because woodpeckers are protected, it is essential to hire a bird removal professional pest control company that will remove and control them in compliance with federal law.

Grackles

Grackles (Quiscalus quiscula) are blackbirds that are generally found in open spaces where there are scattered trees. They commonly roost in large numbers, into the thousands.

They are forages that are resourceful and opportunistic in nature and are a nuisance to both agricultural and structural properties. Because of their large flocks they drive out other species, take over areas, create excessive noise and leave droppings and waste that are hazardous to human and pet health.

Egyptian Geese

Egyptian Geese are native to Africa and have been in the US since the 1970’s. They have become a common exotic bird in Florida.

They can be easily distinguished from other Geese by the large dark brown circles around their eyes.  As they are excellent swimmers they prefer wetland habitats near lakes, dams, rivers, reservoirs and marshes.

Gulls

Seagulls are a true nuisance pest. They are always hungry as they hunt for our favorite food on the beach. They steal fish in hatcheries and boats and eat livestock feed as well.

They are typically found around rivers, lakes, ponds and beaches. Because they adapt well to environments they are also found at fields, parks, parking lots and stadiums.

Gulls are difficult to control. While attracted. to food sources, they can transmit cryptosporidiosis, a parasitic disease that causes fever, stomach cramps, and diarrhea, As they can contaminate the food they also contaminate water with E.coli, which is a bacteria that causes food poisoning. It is crucial for this type of bird removal to be done.

Turkey Vultures

Turkey vultures are large birds that generally feed on dead carcasses and can do extensive damage. They typically fly in large flocks, approximately 70 at a time. When they settle down to roost it’s usually on the rooftops of tall buildings.

The destruction they cause is mostly where they nest and roost, on rooftops. This damage can be so severe that it is irreversible. 

Since they are quite large, so are their droppings, which can be filled with fungi, parasites and bacteria. Salmonella, meningitis, histoplasmosis and encephalitis are diseases gulls can transmit.
