How to Remove Avians from Your Home

Even though birds might not seem like much of a threat to your family, your business, or your property, they can cause a lot of trouble. Some birds, like pigeons, doves, finches, and sparrows, look for places to nest that are protected from the weather. Sometimes, the birds decide to make your property their permanent home. This can cause damage to your property, illness, unattractive bird droppings, and even flea or mite infestations. 

Once a nest is built, some species may even act aggressively toward potential threats to their young in order to protect them and keep hatchlings from dying. Call Vista Pest Control Company if birds have been coming to your property for a long time and you need help from trained professionals to make sure they stay away. They will send a licensed bird control technician to your home or business to do an inspection.

Different Ways to Remove Birds

Vista Pest Control Company’s methods for getting rid of birds are based on an approach called “integrated pest management,” which means using more than just killing the pests to get rid of them. Effective and non-lethal avian pest management programs include a number of ways to treat the problem that offer long-term solutions.


To control bird populations, the first thing that needs to be done is to find out what kinds of birds are causing the problem and where their nests are. This will help figure out the best way to get rid of the problem. This could be hard in some situations, especially if the birds aren’t in the area or aren’t moving around while the inspection is going on. Any information or pictures about the look or behavior of the birds that can be given to the bird control expert might help them figure out what kind of bird needs to be removed from the property. Taking pictures of the birds while they are nesting, perching or flying can make it much easier to identify them, which will speed up the treatment. If this is possible, take pictures like this.


The purpose of the exclusion is to keep people from going to places where birds might normally build their nests. Getting this done can be done in a number of ways. This kind of pest control doesn’t directly hurt the birds. Instead, it keeps them from getting into your house and forces them to find other places to live. Small holes and access points can be blocked with screens, bird netting, or wooden boards to keep people or animals out of space.

Removing Perches

In addition to keeping birds out of your house with an exclusion, perch modification devices can help reduce the number of birds on or near your property. Exclusion is one way. By using things like hot wires, bird spikes on the outside of the building’s perimeter, and bird coils, you can reduce the number of space birds have to land.

Behavior Alteration Deterrents

Some of these methods include using loud sounds, bright lights, and strong smells to get birds to leave a certain area. These are meant to make it hard for birds to build nests.

Removing Food Source

You can help keep the number of birds around your house in check by making it harder for them to find food. Still, it’s likely that bird populations are growing because of food sources that you can’t control. Because of this, this method only makes sense as an addition to our other treatment options.


After the measures to keep birds out have been put in place, regular pest management maintenance will include ongoing bird control if regular services are hired. This is what will happen if the services are kept on a regular basis. Our experts will keep an eye out for new nests and bird droppings so we can get rid of any signs of birds before they move in.

Why it’s a Good Idea to Hire a Professional Bird Control Service

Even though birds rarely pose a direct threat to people, they can cause a number of problems, some of which can lead to health problems or property damage.

Most bird species can host parasites like fleas and bird mites. Mites and fleas that live on birds will first move into their nest, where they will molt and lay eggs, before coming to your house.

Pigeons, crows, and seagulls are all types of scavengers that will make a mess of garbage and even damage property to get food. Crows also eat dead animals. There are many problems caused by bird droppings:

  • When pigeon poop is left to dry out, it turns into a fine powder that HVAC systems can pick up and spread. When they breathe in polluted air, people who have breathing problems or allergies are more likely to get sick.
  • Because they are acidic, they can eat away at and change the color of many building materials.
  • They carry a number of diseases and viruses that can make people sick and be passed on to other people.
  • If you don’t take care of them for too long, they will start to look bad, and it might cost a lot to clean them up.

Conditions that Spread Passed on by Birds

Pathogens, like bacteria and viruses, can be spread by birds, and it is known that they can host a wide range of them. The risk of this is that people could get diseases from birds that could get worse and make them sick enough to kill them. Here is a list of some of the most dangerous diseases that birds can spread:

  • Salmonella is a type of organism that is often found in pigeon and seagull poop. It is linked to both salmonellosis and paratyphoid fever.
  • E. coli is a type of bacteria that can cause serious illnesses like septicemia and gastroenteritis. It is often spread by seagulls.
  • Psittacosis is an infection of the lungs that can be caused by breathing in germs from dried pigeon or seagull poop. Psittacosis can be spread by breathing it in.
  • Histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis are two diseases that can be caused by fungi. Seagull poop is a good place to look for fungi.
