Birds can cause many problems for businesses and property owners, including damage to buildings, health hazards, and aggressive behaviors. The key to effective bird pest control is to take a comprehensive approach addressing the various factors that may attract birds to your building. If you are experiencing issues with birds on your property, check out these several steps you can take to effectively deter birds.
Allowing birds to become accustomed to being fed or finding food on your property will make them more likely to return and potentially cause problems. Avoiding such behaviors is key. This includes things like not feeding the birds, properly disposing of trash, and not leaving doors and windows open unnecessarily.
Automatic doors can effectively prevent birds from entering buildings, as they can be programmed only to open when someone approaches. This can be especially useful in areas where birds are known to congregate, such as immediate outdoor eating areas or trash disposal areas.
Birds are often attracted to buildings because of the insects that may be present. By controlling the insect population on your property, you can help reduce the likelihood of birds being attracted to your building.
Look for areas where birds might perch, such as ledges, signs, or overhangs. Also, check for any openings or gaps in the building that might provide easy access for birds. Install bird repellents or deterrents, like Critter Guard’s BirdBloc, in these areas to help keep birds away from your building.
This can be as simple as sealing gaps and openings around windows, doors, and vents or installing screens or netting over openings. To help prevent birds from gathering near your building in the first place, try installing Critter Guard’s bird deterrent, BirdBloc.
