How To Discourage Birds From Nesting on Your Albuquerque Building

9/10/2018 (Permalink)

Birds commonly migrate as seasons change, and when they do, they need a place to rest. Many birds look for welcoming surfaces on which to build nests, but the drawback is that these nests are not always wanted by the building’s human inhabitants and droppings are unsightly. A mud nest is not only an eyesore; it can actually degrade the structure of the building, initiating the need for restoration services. Bird removal is not always easy, and many methods are illegal. The best bird cleaning strategies, therefore, are preventative.

1. Mock Predators

While it may be illegal to physically remove the birds from your building in Rio Rancho as you can with other methods of pest control, it is perfectly okay to scare them off. Visual deterrents that resemble natural predators can be an effective way to discourage birds from taking up residence on your commercial property. The migratory birds spot the deterrent and tend to flee. For an even more effective strategy, try moving the deterrent to different locations so the birds don’t get used to it.

2. Physical Barriers

A net that covers the awnings where birds like to nest can prove to be a lot of trouble for them. If birds have to work too hard to get to their preferred spot, they are likely to give up and go find a place that’s easier to reach. Nets are typically inexpensive, easy to install and discreet. They are a useful bird cleaning tool.

3. Covered Landing Zone

If the net is not enough, you may have to make the area where the birds land and begin to assemble their homes inhospitable. A sloping apparatus can make it impossible for the birds to get sure footing. They simply slide off the landing, and your building remains nest-free.

You cannot control the migratory patterns of birds, and once they have nested on your building, you may not have a lot of choice as to whether they can stay. You can defend your property with preventative measures, though.

Having a company that can coordinate the whole process from start to finish to make your life easier and gets you back in your home or business faster. “Like it never even happened.”
