The goal of bird proofing for your San Diego area property is to deter birds from landing, roosting, or nesting. Bird watching may be a favorite pastime for many, but the last place you want birds to take up residence is on your property.
Although there are pest removal methods available for dealing with an existing problem, the best strategy is to prevent the problem from developing in the first place. At Northman Exteriors, we may be known as the local pressure washing pros, but we're also problem-solvers for pest prevention.
Bird proofing, also referred to as bird control, consists of commonly used methods to prevent birds from becoming pests. Birds can be messy, loud, and the damage they cause can drive down your property value. We'll help you live among nature without being subjected to it in your home.
How Bird Proofing Benefits Local Property Owners
The most important advantage of bird proofing is eliminating the health concern. Birds can create health concerns through exposure to their feces, including:
- Histoplasmosis - infection occurs by breathing fungal spores found in contaminated bird or bat droppings.
- Cryptococcosis - pulmonary infection from the inhalation of soil contaminated by pest excrement.
- Psittacosis - infectious disease caused by infected birds, including pigeons and sparrows.
Once birds even partially claim your property, the mess isn't just a health hazard; it can damage your property. If you don't want to call us once a month for exterior cleaning services like house washing or building cleaning, it's better to prevent a bird problem from developing.
Options For Bird Control
It's integral to devise a plan that offers protection from a bird problem developing that is humane. We still love birds; there's just no need to let them take over home or business.
There are multiple methods we can use for deterring bird landing, roosting, or nesting:
- Stainless Steel Spike Kits
- Repellent Scare Rods
- Scare Owl Decoy
- Owl/Predator Bird Scare Hologram
- Repellent Scare Tape
We'll familiarize ourselves with your property and determine what the best plan of attack should be for preventing birds from landing and roosting. If you're ready to take back control, it's time to give Northman Exteriors a call. Contact us now, and let's avoid a problem from developing with your San Diego area home by implementing professional bird proofing methods.
