Professional bird exclusion, cleanup and control
Pigeon control and removal can be as simple as installing some bird spikes or it may be much more involved. Our specialists will do a full site assessment and determine whether netting, shock track, trapping, scare devices or a combination of methods is the best approach for your particular problem.
Most woodpecker problems in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley are from the Northern Flicker. These birds feed on ants and beetles and they will damage wood siding looking for insects in the walls, plus they will try to excavate a cavity to nest in. In commercial buildings they often make large holes in stucco, ornamental facades and signs. In the early spring the males will also bang on light poles and chimney caps to try to attract females.
Getting rid of woodpeckers involves scaring them away, removing any local food attractants, excluding them from any nesting areas, and repairing any damage they may have done.
Seagulls are very loud, produce a large amount of droppings, and can aggressively dive bomb people who get too close to the area around their nests. Seagulls are a protected species so it is important to deal with this bird before they get well established.
Starlings, sparrows and other small birds
Starlings, sparrows and other small birds often nest in dryer and stove vents as well as the insulated ceilings of parkades. Nest removal and one way flaps solve the first batch of problems, and properly installed netting will keep birds out of parkade ceilings.
The Canada Goose is adapting to our ever expanding cities by learning how to nest on rooftops and patios. While this demonstrates an admirable adaptability these birds are also quite aggressively territorial when they get established. They will defend their nests and then they defend their young while taking them for walks in the neighbourhood.
If you have birds on the brain (or ledge, or roof, or your signs, or banging on your siding…) give us a call!
