Solving Pest Bird Problems in Orange County
Orange County California, best known for their world-renowned theme parks, beaches and shopping centers, attract more than just the average tourist. These attractions bring in their fair share of bird control problems to the Orange County area. Pigeons nest on gas station canopies and under solar panels, Seagulls stake their claim at marinas and destroy boats, and crows threaten neighborhood home owners. If that wasn’t enough, migratory swallows swarm by the thousands in the spring.
Are Pigeons causing Gas and Solar Prices to Increase?
The answer is most likely a no, but the year round sunny weather gives pest birds no valid reason to leave the beautiful OC area. Every gas station in Orange County can attest to having pigeons perching or roosting on the premise. Pigeons pooping on a customer’s car is the least of your worries, especially when gas station canopies come crashing down after years of neglected pigeon debris clogging drainage systems. OC’s suburban residents are well versed on the daily fight to keep pigeons from nesting under their solar panel arrays. These pest birds bring over 60+ known diseases, making them a notable terror of a neighbor.
A Colony of Gulls
Orange County’s beach front property owners, restaurateurs, and boat owners share a common enemy, seagulls. A colony of gulls will paint your rooftop white, hassle your valued customers, and destroy your boats. These protected marine birds have grown entirely too comfortable around humans, scavenging on scraps left behind and even grabbing food straight out of your hands.
A Horde of Crows
Notorious for their keen intelligence, a murder of crows will be sure to cause a nuisance in your neighborhood. These black birds are known to scavenge for food and bully those who get in their way, this means people and pets alike.
Migrating Swallows Return to Build Mud Nests
Orange County is famous for their migrating swallow population. These majestic birds arrive in the thousands, returning to the exact location where they nested the previous year. If you’re unlucky enough, the increase in mud nests grows with your frustration levels. Although these birds are protected migratory species, there are preventative measures you can take prior to their spring time return.
