Bird Control for California

Birds are an important part of our natural environment. As predators, they feed on insects, rodents, worms, fish and countless other animals. Game birds, song birds, hawks and other bird species contribute to outdoor recreation and the overall enjoyment of nature.

Because of these contributions, birds are afforded considerable protection by laws, regulations and public sentiment. Public relations are an integral part of any bird management project and Critter Control will educate our clients and the public why a particular bird control program or method is necessary.

The three birds that most often become pests in the United States in urban areas are pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows. If you have ever tried to get rid of pigeons, you know just how difficult pigeon control can be.  Other birds, from hawks to swallows, may occasionally cause unexpected and unusual pest problems. When blackbirds and crows roost in suburban areas they become pests. Woodpeckers may peck holes into house siding looking for insects, to make nest cavities, and to communicate with other woodpeckers. Seagulls can feed at food-plants, and they roost and nest on large flat roofs with crushed stone.

Birds may be beneficial, neutral or harmful to man's interests, depending upon time, location and activity, and certain birds (sparrows, woodpeckers, waterfowl, pigeons and black birds) are more likely to become pests. Pest bird situations include:

  • Feeding on agricultural products
  • Roosting or nesting around human habitations
  • Destroying vegetation and contaminating foods
  • Noise, droppings, odor and feathers
  • Diseases or ectoparasites affecting man including histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis
  • Unpleasant or hazardous working conditions

The best bird control approaches emphasize deterrents, exclusion or modification of buildings.  California Critter Control’s knowledgeable technicians have several bird control methods to bird proof your home or help to get rid of birds that congregate on municipal and commercial buildings in urban settings.  We will work with you to bird proof your property, protecting it from damage.  We use other bird deterrents in rural and agricultural settings.  For more information, please contact us at 1-800-CRITTER.
