Residential Bird Control

Whether it’s a flight of birds or the pesky presence of a single bird trapped within your home, worrying about what might be falling from above is more than a nuisance, it can be a health hazard. Bird droppings can have lasting effects on decks, vehicles, and exterior paint, as well as your health. Additionally, some birds will even build their nests in exterior walls and chimneys which can lead to carbon-monoxide poisoning or fire.

Inspection and Assessment

Greenshield’s bird technicians use the knowledge and experience of over 30 years Bird Control Experience, they understand several bird species’ behaviour and biology. During the assessment, our bird technician will gather information, including your observations, investigate the property to observe all bird activity, and search for the presence of nests.

Gathering information, the information gathered from you is beneficial in your technician being able to focus his/her attention on the key areas and situations specific to your experiences and needs.

Your interior assessment, during the interior assessment the technician will likely require access to your attic as well as any other area where you have experienced bird sightings, noises or have found waste, nesting material and or damage. The level of contamination within the attic will also be noted to protect the home or cottage owner form the risk of disease. In these key areas he/she will be investigating to determine both the level of infestation as well as ascertaining which bird species is the invader. Attention will be paid to common interior nesting locations such as attic, chimney and vents. This information is necessary in the strategic removal of unwanted birds from your home or cottage.

Your exterior assessment will be conducted After your interior assessment has been completed. The technician will direct his/her attention to the exterior of your home or cottage. Here he/she will be focussed on finding the primary points of entry birds may be using to gain access to your home, potential points of entry, as well as roosting areas. These include soffits, fascia, roof, walls, roof or gable vents, chimneys, garage doors, vents, roof intersections, and any other potential problem areas depending on building type.

Upon completion of the assessment the technician will do a walk through with you discussing and pointing out any areas of concern you should be made aware of. At this point your technician will create a strategic plan using experience, training and the information gathered from the assessment to both remove any birds from your home as well as any exclusion, i.e. sealing, proofing, replacement of vent covers, bird deterrents, etc. Anything needed to assure no new birds will be able to gain access to, or roost on the exterior of your home or cottage. During your assessment Greenshield will take into consideration the likely presence of nests and the steps required to humanely remove the eggs or babies.

Removal and Prevention

Since our inception, Greenshield has always taken a humane approach to the removal of birds and wildlife from property and buildings. Our process supports this approach and our methods are safe and effective for our clients and the wildlife we deal with.

One-way door bird excluders – Our bird one-way door systems are used at the primary point of entry to remove all invading birds. This safe and humane system allows birds to leave safely and eliminates their ability to return. Once the birds have safely exited, the system will be removed the area will undergo all agreed upon exclusion.

Live Bird Traps – Whenever possible Greenshield prefers to allow birds to exit willingly, however in some situations the capture and removal of an unwanted invader is necessary. In such a case live traps are set up and monitored often to assure the offending captives are released quickly and safely back into the outdoors. Water and food is provided for the safety of the birds.

Bird Control Devices & Deterrents –In many situations where bird control is necessary Greenshield uses physical devices such as netting, bird spikes and bird deterrents to prevent bird roosting activity at your home or cottage. We also employ deterrents such as scare devices to discourage birds for the area.

Exclusion (Sealing and Proofing) -Using the information gained during the assessment we provide the necessary exclusion needed to seal and proof your home or cottage in a way that will balance its aesthetics, closing off any potential entry points and securing any secondary or tertiary potential points of entry to ensure you remain bird free for years to come.

Pigeon Control

Birds can be a nuisance. Not only do birds pose a risk to your property with acidic droppings and blocked ventilation systems, many also carry diseases that can have a lasting effect on your family, friends, and any animals that come into contact with your property. Additionally, a bird’s nest is flammable and if built under certain circumstances, such as in electric signs, there is a severe risk of fire.

Some birds are extremely mobile and can become trapped inside buildings while others establish their nests on the outside walls. It is important to note that many birds are beneficial to the environment, while others are legally protected by various levels of government, even if they have become a nuisance. You want to ensure you address a bird infestation in a humane manner.

Sparrow Control

The most effective method of control is to exclude sparrows from the area with 3/4″ StealthNet, making sure there are no gaps or crevices for the birds to pass through. The only ledge deterrent systems that are truly effective against sparrows are electrified ledge systems that use an intermittent pulse like Bird-Shock Flex-Track. New 2-chambered Sparrow Traps are quite effective at trapping small quantities of sparrows. The best trap has an elevated second chamber that keeps the birds happy and so content that they actually sing, attracting others to the trap. When practical, the trapping program should be combined with a nest removal program that will greatly reduce the population over time. Along with trapping, mist nets can be installed in the flight paths by certified personnel to capture these birds in enclosed areas. A new technique that has found some success for moving populations is to fog problem areas with Avian Control. This method is most commonly applied when sparrows gather in flocks. Sparrows generally do not react to audio and visual products except occasionally in areas to which they are not very committed (new to area).

Swallow Control

All Swallows enjoy special protection under the law. You cannot disturb them once they lay their egg in the nest. The only way to eliminate cliff and barn Swallow problems is to take down the nests in the winter after they are gone and exclude them from returning by using 3/4″ StealthNet. The netting needs to be angled across the eaves to prevent access to any sharp building angles. Several strands of Birdwire can also be run under eaves in strategic patterns at angles to prevent nest build up as well. BirdSlide can be inverted under eaves to prevent nest building.

Gull Control

Gridwire systems and large 4″ mesh StealthNet will deny access to large open areas. Bird-Flite spikes, 5″ Bird-Coil, and Bird-Shock Flex-Track are very effective on ledges depending on the level of bird pressure. The Daddi Long Legs is a great product to dissuade Gulls from landing on silos, street lights, A/C units & large flat rooftops. For feeding sites such as dumps, a wide variety of Audio and Visual Deterrents like the Scare Eye Ballon and high tech multiple and random sound distress call units like the Bird-Gard units should be combined with exclusionary products such as Gridwire systems, TowerGuard or 4″ StealthNet.
