The birds often nest under awnings, overhangs, open roofs and covered beams in breezeways. Continue reading →

Starlings and the Grain/Agriculture Industry

Starlings and the Grain/Agriculture IndustryEuropean starlings cost growers as much as $800 million in the US annually. The loud, obnoxious, destructive birds steal grain, ravage crops and crowd out native bird species. The problem is that starlings move in vast numbers, which often descend on a field, orchard or grain area. A migrating flock of starlings can number 100,000 birds. Another problematic factor is that starlings now have fewer natural predators to keep their numbers in check. Continue reading →

The Facts on Nesting Pest Birds Infographic

It’s Spring and birds are building nests. Unfortunately they often choose buildings and homes to build them on. But don’t disturb those nests until you know if that bird is protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. Get the facts… Check out this Bird Nesting Infographic.

If they are a protected bird; their nests, eggs and young can not be tampered with. So the best way to keep these unwanted yearly guests away is to install humane bird deterrents before they arrive.

This infographic covers information about:

  • Pigeon Nests
  • Starling Nests
  • Barn & cliff swallow Nests
  • Woodpecker Nests
  • Goose Nests

This helpful bird nesting infographic will also offer key information about the nests that are Federally protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) or by the Endangered Species Act (ESA). This way, you will be educated about the most effective and lawful way to deter unwanted birds and their nests!

A complete list of protected birds by the ESA can be
found at U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

 
These laws can impose costly penalties for anyone who disturbs
nests, hatchlings, or harms the birds in any way. The MBTA and
ESA do allow for passive measures of bird control, such as humane
deterrent and repellent measures and devices. The MBTA and ESA
also allow for modifying or degrading land that is part of a migratory
bird habitat.

How to Keep Pest Birds from Building Nests on Your Property

Keep Pest Birds from Building NestsThe simple truth is that many buildings and structures are bird magnets. They offer all manner of nooks and crannies where birds can build safe nests (like attics, eaves, overhangs or similar semi-open areas).  Many properties have standing water (left over from rains, snow or sprinkler systems), giving birds easy access to water. And far too many have open trash containers, open dipsy-dumpsters, or food scraps lying under tables around lunch areas. Commercial signage is another bird lure, for birds love to build nests in these areas warmed by electric bulbs. The same holds true for rooftop AC units, solar panels and other rooftop structures.

Geese Facts Goose Facts Infographic

If you own or manage any type of structure or property, there are some facts you need to know about geese to prevent these large birds from damaging your property.

Geese love to gather around lakeshores, ponds, golf courses, sports fields and any dwellings that happen to be near them. The birds prefer nesting sites on elevated, secluded areas near bodies of water. They will return to the area of their birth each year to mate and nest. Nesting season is mid March to May, so the time to implement proactive deterrents/repellents is now.

Most Geese have a wide wingspan (up to 75 inches), which allows them to fly up to 1,500 miles in a single day.  When migrating, they will “pond hop” and forage for food. This can be very destructive to plants and property, as mature Canada geese can weigh up to 14 pounds. They can quickly denude and trample green vegetation, grasses and aquatic plants, leaving large amounts of droppings in their wake. Continue reading →
