Solving Pest Bird Problems in Los Angeles County, California
Los Angeles County, one of the nation’s most densely populated urban areas, has its fare share of bird control problems. With a population of over 10 million, LA County has no shortage of buildings for birds to inhabit. Pigeons litter skyscrapers and destroy solar panels, seagulls swarm public schools and outdoor dining areas, and crows terrorize suburban neighborhoods. Oh, and don’t forget about the migrating cliff swallows every spring!
A side of Pigeon Droppings with your Favorite Meal
With no drastic change in seasonal weather, many of these invasive pest birds have free range to wreak havoc on LA County. Pigeons are seen perching on every building imaginable and will surely keep you company while you enjoy an outdoor meal at your favorite restaurant. LA’s suburban residents are well aware of the daily struggle of protecting their solar panels. And if you leave your solar panels unprotected, you’ll soon find out why. California’s mandate to promote solar energy has increased the popularity of solar panel arrays. And with these installations brings nesting birds and the 60+ known diseases they can carry.
Seagulls, the Bane of every Public School Lunch Area
This coastal county, to no surprise, has grown accustomed to the vast number of seagulls. Every public school in Los Angeles knows when the lunch bell rings, the swarm of gull’s flock to the surrounding buildings. Seagulls sit waiting looking for any opportunity to swoop down to grab an unmanned lunch tray. School AC and HVAC units are smothered with bird droppings, feathers and nesting material. All of which are known to contribute to respiratory issues.
Crows Terrorize Suburban Neighborhoods
Crows have terrorized LA County’s neighborhoods for years. These black birds are highly intelligent and will scavenge for food, rip out the rubber membrane from windowsills and bully your pets into submission.
Spring into Swallow Season
Every spring Los Angeles County witness thousands of cliff swallows migrating to the southern California region. Historically nesting on cliffs, these birds have adapted to building their mud nests on bridges, houses and commercial buildings. Mud nests can lead to damaged homes, costly cleanups for buildings, and in some cases completely halt construction work dead in their tracks. Disturbing a federally protected cliff swallow from nesting can result in fines or even worse.
