Effective Bird Control for Residential Areas


Birds cause millions of dollars in damage to homes across the U.S. each year. Bird nests can ruin gutters, cause electrical fires, and block ventilation systems. Gardens aren’t safe either. Birds can destroy seedlings, fresh fruit and can contaminate plants with their droppings.

Because of the acidity levels in bird droppings, large accumulations of them can actually eat through roofing materials, which could cause leaks if bird populations are not deterred from the property.

There are a variety of effective ways to control the bird populations around a home and garden. At Bird B Gone, we’ve developed a variety of environmentally friendly bird deterrents that will not harm birds or other wildlife yet will effectively deter them in most cases.

Bird Control Products to Match Your Needs

Bird control most often recommended for residential areas include:

  • Plastic Bird Spikes

    Spikes are an excellent solution to block the birds from an area. Bird spikes placed on the roof’s ledge will stop the pigeons and other larger pest birds from landing there. They like this area because it gives them a great view into the yard. There are stainless steel and plastic bird spikes. The plastic spikes are ideal for residential use because they come in various colors to match the home.
  • Woodpecker Deterrents

    Are woodpeckers causing damage to your house? When woodpeckers target a house or property, they will drill relentlessly either in search of food or as a mating call to attract a mate. Woodpecker deterrents are easy to install and are very effective at keeping woodpeckers from ruining your home.

  • Garden Netting

    Are the garden plants being destroying before you have a chance to pick the ripened fruits, berries and vegetables? Are the fruit trees infested with roosting birds? Garden netting would be the choice. Garden bird netting creates a barrier, so the birds cannot reach the produce.

  • Red-Tailed Hawk Decoy

    Not only do the red-tailed hawks hunt in the daylight hours in a natural habitat, they are readily identified by birds as a predator. The mock predator eye and shiny reflective surface work together appealing to birds’ visual sense. The red-tailed hawk decoy presents a visual warning to the birds, day or night, that danger is near.
