There are many types of birds throughout the Northwest Indiana and Chicago areas that can become a nuisance when they enter homes. Birds often enter homes through the chimney, vents, or windows and cause property damage by nesting and defecating within the home. Certain birds such as woodpeckers may cause more unique problems that could also be dangerous to the home.
Birds are very difficult to control once they invade which is why it is recommended to contact Groen’s Wildlife Services for bird removal in Northwest Indiana and the Chicago suburbs. Our staff is state licensed and certified to effectively remove birds and provide exclusionary services to prevent the birds from returning.
Bird Infestation Identification and Prevention
Birds can enter a home in a number of ways including through the chimney, attic, vents, or windows and once inside, they can access just about any area of the house. They may build their nests in chimneys or vents which could cause problems with the HVAC system and their excessive droppings can create a health hazard within the home. Woodpeckers pose a unique problem because they can damage a home by pecking away at the wooden structures.
Prevention is the best method of bird control and there are several methods that are effective for preventing bird infestations. The most common types of bird prevention are netting to block off certain plants and entry points and bird spikes or wire that discourage birds from roosting.
If there are birds causing problems on your property, it is best to contact Groen’s Wildlife Control for bird removal services. The Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 protects almost all bird species and makes it illegal to harm them without a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Our licensed and certified technicians employ integrated pest management techniques to remove nuisance birds and apply exclusionary techniques to prevent future infestations. We also clean up feces and repair any damages caused by birds in your home.
