What are pest birds?

Pest birds are species of birds that cause particular concern to home and business owners. They cause damage to homes and other buildings, leave behind copious amounts of droppings, are noisy, and can cause health problems. The most common pest bird species in our area include: pigeons, sparrows, hawks, ducks, and geese.

Why do I have pest birds?

Pest birds are attracted to properties that give them access to roosting and nesting sites that are in close proximity to food and water sources. Homes that have bird feeders set out are particularly prone to problems with pest birds.

Are they dangerous?

Yes, pest birds are very dangerous to have on your property, especially in large numbers. They can spread many diseases through their droppings including: West Nile virus, avian flu, and Salmonella. Pest birds can also introduce a whole host of other pests including: lice, fleas, ticks, and mice.

Pest birds can cause a lot of damage; their feathers and nests can clog and damage air conditioning units, gutters, vents, and other machinery. The build-up of droppings can lead to dangerous slip and fall injuries. Also, some species, like geese and hawks, can be aggressive and become a danger to you and your pets.
