Birds may be considered beneficial animals by some zoologists and people who study them. They serve important roles in the ecosystem and many species of birds are even protected by the government. Although many birds are beautiful creatures and an amusement to many bird watchers, they can also be one of the most significant house pests. They can be a major nuisance around businesses and homes and are also known to deface monuments and other structures. Moreover, birds can be a serious health threat and are capable of being vectors of disease pathogens. Moreover, birds can carry parasitic insects that lead to additional pest problems in and around your home or business. Different species of birds can be found all over the United States but some of the major bird species that will be found around residential areas or act as a pest around a business or a home are woodpeckers, pigeons, starlings, and sparrows.
There are four major species that are considered serious house pests which include the woodpecker, pigeon, starling and sparrow. All birds are covered with feathers and the color will depend on the species. They also possess horny beaks that lack teeth and have one-feathered tails and two-feathered wings.
There are several different methods of bird control. Usually it will consist of either mechanical control or chemical control or will even make use of both.
Before applying any type of repellent or using such tools as bird spikes, inspect an area to look for their food source. A bird may continue to return of there is an adequate food source. General pest control to get rid of the insects around a structure will also discourage a bird infestation.
