Roofs can often be an appealing nesting location for birds during colder months. However, having unwanted birds around can create many problems for homeowners and commercial areas. Birds can damage the exterior of a home, particularly cedar windows and panelling. Nests built in gutters can block water flow, causing mould and moisture problems. Bird droppings are unsightly and can carry Salmonella. In many instances, birds also bring bird lice, which will attack humans after birds have left their nest.
Our technicians are experienced in both locating entry points for birds and in treating for lice safely and effectively if necessary. If you have a nest in your home, the best method is typically to wait until the birds have left and then to replace, block or repair whatever access points they have in your home. The installation of bird spikes can also deter birds from roosting in the future. If the birds have already vacated your property or if anyone in your home has bites or feels itchy, lice treatment may be needed.
