Nuisance birds on your property can, and have been a problem for many Toronto and York Region residents for a long time. People often tolerate these dilemmas for long periods of times before they throw in the towel and call a professional. There are several reasons why bird removal, or any type of wildlife removal is left unresolved for a while before calling, which could stem from finances, to lack of time or even just for the sake of putting it off.

Here we touch base with the importance of what Bird Removal is, why it is so important, what common bird problems occur and the easiest way to get rid of birds.

What is Bird Removal & why is it Important?

  • Bird removal are a series of methods and strategies used to get rid of birds on your property.
  • Bird removal is important because if left untreated the bird population increases, which complicates the removal process
  • Bird droppings can be toxic
  • Bird’s nests can be dangerous when they are perched on and around wires that could lead to safety hazards

Conducting bird removal before the situation escalated is always recommended for a number of reasons. In addition to the list above, birds also can cause problems like leaving nesting material nearby or in drain pipes which could lead to water damage. The sight of bird droppings are unpleasant and the chance of being victim to bird dropping is less than favourable. If bird removal is left untreated for long period of time, there is a likelihood that the bird population will increase further complicating the situation. Dealing with bird removal as early on as possible can save you in time, damages, and costs in the future.

What is the Problem with Birds?

Although bird watching from afar can be mesmerizing, having birds up-close and on your Personal Property can be a problem.

Here’s why:

  • Bird’s droppings can stain property and damage building materials.
  • Bird nests can also clog drains which leads to water damage.
  • Nuisance bird noises throughout the day
  • Birds perching on your property

What’s the Easiest way to get Rid of Birds?

It’s easy to think that birds are the easiest things to get rid of compared to getting rid of mice or bugs. We assume that we can just chase a bird and they fly away and never come back, but unfortunately this is not the case. Birds need to be Removed by professionals; the easiest way to remove birds is to call a wildlife removal company like SOS Wildlife Control Inc.

Some of the Methods that we use to Conduct Bird Removal are the following:

  • Bird Spikes

Bird spikes are tracks that are installed over flat surfaces that make it impossible for birds to land on. It causes no harm to the animal, it simply ensures that the bird won’t be able to perch on this location! Bird spikes are durable and effective, requiring little to no maintenance.

  • Bird Nets

Bird netting is a method of bird prevention that uses stainless steel cables and nets to block off a specific area from birds. This is a permanent solution as long as the netting is not tampered with.

  • Shock Track

A shock track is installed on ledges or any flat surfaces where birds are not welcome to perch. It is useful from deterring all species of birds by releasing an electric pulse. This method does not injure birds, however it is unpleasant resulting in the discouragement of birds on your property./

  • One-Way Door
