You have birds nesting in or near your home, or in your attic can cause real damage, beyond the hassle of feather, feces, nests and noise.
Bird infestation can be prevalent all year in central New York, but heaviest in the months of March through May, and bird removal might become necessary. Birds nesting in the attic might seem like no big deal, but when nests get close to light fixtures or electrical wires, the potential for damage is great. Birds also damage structures through their droppings, which in most cases are toxic because of the dangerous spores they contain. Starlings and pigeons are the most common nuisance birds. There are also potential adverse health effects from contact with birds. Birds are hosts to a variety of mites. It is not uncommon for persons or pets that come in contact with birds to get mite infestations that lead to rashes and allergies. Most exposures to bird-borne diseases happen when people come in contact with bird feces; bird droppings are considered toxic and are known to carry over 60 diseases.
Due to federal law bird removal can be very complicated. A special permit must first be obtained before starting the removal process. It is illegal to kill any other species of bird without a special permit extending to nests with eggs and/or young. Birds not protected under federal law are pigeons, European starlings and sparrows. Identification is crucial in the assessment process. Captor Wildlife can not only identify bird species and offer solutions to specific bird problems, but offer other effective solutions such as habitat modification, altering roost and nest sites, harassment and, if necessary, bird removal.
