There are many species of birds that occasionally make nuisances of themselves, but only three of them (pigeons, sparrows and starlings) are officially considered "pest birds." Other birds that occasionally make themselves unwelcome are considered "nuisance wildlife" and can only be controlled by exclusion (and even that is subject to some limitations).
That's an important difference to exterminating companies, who often use poisons to kill birds. Only the three official pest species can legally be poisoned. At Rid-A-Critter, the distinction doesn't mean very much because we use non-lethal bird control methods, anyway. In addition to being more humane, our methods also provide more permanent control of bird problems. Poisoning birds does nothing to address the reasons why the birds became a nuisance in the first place.
Like other pests and nuisance animals, birds become a problem when they're in a place where they don't belong and where they're causing some sort of health or safety hazard, property damage, or annoyance.
There are several ways that birds can cause serious public health and safety hazards, for example:
In addition to the health and safety risks of birds, they can also cause property damage. Some examples of property damage caused by birds include:
Rid-A-Critter solved the bird problem at a radar tower at Hartfield-Jackson International Airport (KATL).
Bird control is very complex and potentially hazardous work that requires special training and equipment. Depending on the particular job, this may include long ladders, scaffolding, platform lifts, bucket trucks, and safety harnesses -- not the sort of thing most homeowners or handymen have access to.
Luckily, we do. Rid-A-Critter has provided professional pest bird removal and bird-proofing services to customers ranging from modest homes to power plants, airports, and other large commercial and industrial facilities. We have the experience, know-how, and equipment to handle any bird control job. There is literally no bird control job to big for us to handle; but neither is their any job too small to receive our fanatical devotion to quality.
Our approach to bird control consists of the following steps:
In short, we don't just remove or kill birds like many "bird exterminators" do. We remove the birds, seal them out, and even clean up the mess they left behind. Our goal is 100 percent customer satisfaction, and we back it up with the best warranty in the business.
