Nesting pest birds create roof damage, block ventilation systems, start fires in electrical signage, damage solar panels, and leave disease carrying droppings that must be cleaned on a regular basis, especially if you serve, store or display foods.

  • 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.

  • What Every Property Owner/Manager Needs to Know About Geese

    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
