Bird Removal and Bird Control
Bird control and Bird removal is one of the most relevant problems in large cities such as Jacksonville FL, Los Angeles CA, Houston TX and many other large US cities. There are many different ways to attempt to control nuisance birds, but only a few work. Here is what we found to be effective and ineffective.
Trapping (physical removal) of the birds is the only permanent solution to your bird problem. There are times when this method is not possible. This is where the methods mentioned below come in handy. All the methods will work to control birds to some extent. Some are better than others, but all will work in the short-term.
- Bird Exclusion (will work but is usually very costly)
- Bird Scare devices (does work, but its a temporary fix)
- Bird Spikes (we have seen birds build nest on them)
- Bird Repellent (makes their feet hot- come on, did you really think that would work?)
- Bird Trapping and Relocation ( they are birds, they will fly back)
- Trapping (The Only Permanent Solution)
The National Pest Control Association, Avian and Wildlife Biologists, and other animal agency experts agree that repellents and other removal and control schemes are, at best, a temporary, noneffective waste of money.
Bird trapping is easy! It requires a bird trap, some time and some whole kernel corn which you can find at the local feed store.
You pre-bait the area, let them get used to eating the corn and then set the trap. Tthe birds will go into the trap baited with corn. Now you have, a trap full of birds. Its up to you what to do with them. Birds that are simply released will fly back in as little as 1 day. They may even beat you back from the release point (no traffic for them). There are several types of birds that are a problem in big cities. They are Pigeons, House Sparrows, Crackles, Geese and several other types of birds depending on where in the US you are located.
