Starling and Black Bird Removal, Related Complaints and Potential Risks

While birds are wonderful to watch and delightful to the ear, they can be inconvenient as neighbors and you probably don’t want to have one making itself comfortable in your home. If birds are allowed into your home or building, they can cause a variety of problems best avoided.

This is where we can help you evict your winged squatters in the most effective and human manner possible.


Though Blackbirds and Starlings will nest about anywhere, one of their favorite spots is wall vents. Years ago they only nested in vents where the flaps had been removed, however, lately they’ve figured out how to lift the flaps and get in. Once in, they stuff the pipe full of nesting material that will cut down on air flow. This can create a dangerous situation in a dryer vent – if something sets a spark off when the dryer is operating, fire is a possibility.


Another situation that commonly occurs when pipes are clogged is the introduction of bird mites and maggots. These can move into the house area and put your family and pets at risk. Bird droppings contain a wide range of pathogens that can have a variety of negative effects of human health, e. coli and salmonella are two examples. Furthermore, spores in bird droppings can cause more health hazards if inhaled.

Fire Hazards

Exhaust vents, chimneys, roof vents and hoods are no place for birds and their nests. A blockage can cause overheating of appliances as well, a combustible nest materials has been introduced into the duct which can ignite and catch fire. This issue must be dealt with ASAP

Bird Prevention Methods

One of the most important ways to prevent and evict a bird tenant is to remove all elements that would attract an opportunistic bird to your home or building. There are also deterrents like one way doors, spikes, scare tactics, netting and other traps that can be used to keep birds from getting too cozy in your building. Spikes are probably the most common technique as they are effective, humane and not to costly either.

Bird Spikes

Spikes are installed along flat surfaces that birds would otherwise choose as a decent perch or it to build a nest. Spikes are a good tactic against birds as birds will not go near them. Spikes will never hurt the birds because birds are smart enough to keep their distance and will not even land near them. While spikes don’t do a lot for the aesthetics of your property, they do look better than unsightly bird feces and are not a health risk either.

Bird Netting

Bird netting is used to keep birds from entering larger outdoor enclosures like parking garages and large balconies and terraces. A steel cable is laid around the perimeter of the area that will be covered. The bird netting will then be attached with rings to this steel cable. As a permanent solution, you can expect this to provide excellent control.
