Florida Bird Control & Commercial Removal


Many casual people don't think of birds as pests. However, if you own a commercial building plagued by a bird problem, you know just what a pest they can be. The primary problem is that they leave their droppings everywhere. They also pose a biohazard, often in public places. I've worked on many commercial buildings, often open-air gas stations or car repair shops, in which pigeons have really befouled the place. They also love to roost on signs at shopping plazas, and they sure make a real mess of your sidewalk. They can also be noisy and unsightly, and lower the cleanliness and value of your property


Pigeons are probably the most common nuisance bird. Everyone knows that pigeons have adapted to life in the city, and they seem to be everywhere in urban environments. Unfortunately, the bird lovers of the world feed them, and they have developed a dependence upon people, thus reinforcing their dependency upon urban areas. They roost on signs, ledges, almost anywhere, and they bring nesting material and leave droppings everywhere. Pigeons are swimming with filth and disease, as everyone knows. Pigeons can carry or transmit: encephalitis, histoplasmosis, Newcastle disease, pigeon ornithosis, cryptococcosis, pigeon coccidiosis, toxoplasmosis, pseudo-tuberculosis, and salmonella food poisoning. Pigeons can carry fleas, ticks, mites, and other parasites


Sparrows and Starlings often choose to nest in buildings. They can be a nuisance in numbers, and bring along quite a bit of nesting material, which in the right (wrong) spot can lead to fire hazard or clogged drain pipes. The uric acid in their droppings can lead to structural damage' and also pose a health risk. They can carry a number of parasites, like all birds. I usually don't have to deal with these birds, but Florida nuisance pest licenses authorize bird control of these species.


Woodpeckers cause problems from time to time when they hammer a hole in your wood-sided building. I certainly won't kill or harm these fine birds, but I know you don't want them hammering holes in your building. I've worked on a few woodpecker jobs. I basically hang a giant net, extruded a foot or so from the wall of your building, to prevent them from landing and drumming. They usually peck for insects, but often pound away as a territorial signal. I've been to a few homes in which woodpeckers have pecked holes and made permanent nests inside. The pounding can be a real headache, and I can make it go away, while not harming the bird(s).


Sometimes a bird will get stuck in a large building, like a store, or a warehouse. Call me for bird control, and I'll get it out safely!
