Frequently Asked Questions About Wildlife
What are birds?
Birds are small creatures that belong to the scientific classification of Aves. They are recognizable for their feathers, toothless beaked jaws, egg-laying reproductive behaviors, and strong, yet lightweight, bone structures which allow them to fly.
Many individuals enjoy bird watching and love to be around these animals, but infestations of nuisance birds, such as pigeons and starlings, on your property result in serious health and safety issues. Professional bird control is necessary to defeat infestations of pest birds around your home or business.
Are birds dangerous?
Birds can be dangerous once they’ve started nesting on your property, as they often become more likely to attack once they are protecting their young. The main problem with bird infestations, however, is the increased risk of disease they bring. Bird droppings carry illnesses such as histoplasmosis, they can trigger breathing or allergic issues, and birds themselves carry fleas, ticks, and mites that may create secondary infestations on your property.
Commercial and residential bird control is necessary to reduce your chances of health and safety issues presented by widespread bird infestations.
Why do I have a bird problem?
Birds often flock to properties that provide them with pest prey, water, and easy spaces to build their nests. If you find that birds are increasing around your property, you should evaluate your outdoor spaces for bird attractants. Our bird control service at ATC Pest Control can help you further identify your bird problem areas.
Where will I find birds?
Birds are most commonly found outside on roofs, nesting in trees, or hiding in overgrown foliage and grasses. If they invade interior spaces, you are likely to see birds nesting in attics or the space between walls. It’s important to invest in professional bird removal, especially if birds are inside your property, as it can be dangerous to try and remove these nests by yourself.

Follow our tips below to prevent bird problems from occurring on your property in the future:
- Address pest prey infestations of insects like crickets and ants that might be attracting hungry birds to your property.
- Scare away potential bird invaders with plastic figures of predators like snakes and owls; move them regularly, so birds believe they are real.
- Cut back long grasses, trim trees and shrubs, and remove outdoor piles of debris to remove bird harborage areas.
- Place mesh screens over vented areas around attics to keep birds out; only do this under the supervision of a professional if birds are already in your interior spaces.
- Clear gutters and fix leaks that might be leading to moisture issues and pools of excess water around your property.
