When Birds in Your Yard are a Problem
Many bird species can be beautiful to see in your backyard, but when they start becoming a problem, it’s time to take action. Some birds can damage property or create nuisances with their droppings or calls.
Birds that are likely to become a problem in your yard include seagulls, pigeons, crows, and geese. These birds can be found in many environments, from coastal areas to cities and suburbs.
There are a few things you can do to help prevent bird problems:
Why Birds Are a Problem
Birds can become a problem for homeowners in a few different ways:
Property Damage: Birds can cause damage to homes and other buildings by pecking at windows, roofs, or siding. They can also create problems with their droppings, which can be corrosive and contain pathogenic bacteria.
Noise: Birds can make a lot of noise, particularly during the breeding season. This can be annoying and disruptive for homeowners.
Health Risks: Bird droppings can contain harmful bacteria and parasites that can cause health problems for humans.
What to Do If You Have a Bird Problem
There are several ways to bird-proof your yard and keep the birds from becoming nuisances. One way is to make the environment less desirable for them. This can be done by adding bird spikes to ledges and other places birds like to perch or using netting to cover trees and plants.
Another way to bird-proof your yard is to use scare tactics. One popular method is to hang fake owls in the trees. You can also use bird scarers, which make loud noises or emit predator smells to scare the birds away.
If these methods don’t work, you may need to consider bird control solutions from a professional.
