With its acres of dense forests, Anoka County is an ideal environment for all types of wildlife to thrive. The region sits on the outskirts of the major metropolis of Minneapolis, and it is one of the most densely populated suburban counties in Minnesota. While some wild animals have been driven out of the area because of rapid urban development, birds are frequently seen throughout the county.

Most people enjoy watching birds fly around their backyard, but no one wants to have a bird building a nest inside their home. There are so many species native to the area that it is important to know when you should take action for bird removal in Anoka County.

Living With Birds in Anoka County

More than 400 bird species are native to Minnesota. Because so many species live in the region, Anoka County is a great area for bird watching. Unfortunately, the area has also experienced rapid growth in development that has caused many birds to build nests in and around residential buildings.

Birds are adaptable creatures that thrive anywhere they can build nests, and they often find suitable nesting spots on front porches, in barns, near attic eaves and in old outbuildings. You should remove them as quickly as possible to minimize the damage they can cause in your home.

Every year, new construction in Minneapolis provides nuisance birds with ideal perches and nesting grounds on high rise and commercial buildings – and residential areas are no stranger to the growing problem.

Anoka is blooming with forests, green spaces and trees that envelop countless communities. Since birds tend to nest in communities with strong tree canopies, almost every community in Anoka County is susceptible to a bird problem. As a result, businesses and home owners in Anoka County find birds roosting or nesting every year.

How Birds Damage Your Home

Birds build messy nests using a variety of random materials they find. If a bird gets into your attic, it may shred old keepsakes and photos to create scraps that are suitable for nests. The creatures may also steal bits of insulation, carpet fibers, string and scraps of paper to use as nesting materials.

Not only are these nests messy, but they also pose a fire risk. Birds may build nests near electrical outlets or light fixtures where the dry material can easily catch on fire. Removing nests is essential for decreasing the fire hazards in your house.

One of the most common areas for birds to build nests is in your gutters. Your gutters may become deformed from the birds nesting inside, so keeping the creatures away from your home is important for protecting your investment.

While birds are capable of damaging the structure of your home, the biggest hazard of interacting with the creatures is their droppings. Bird droppings carry a host of diseases that are easily contracted if you touch the feces. You can easily come in contact with the feces if a bird is living on your front porch or in another area of your house.

Getting Birds Out of Your Home

Preventing birds from building nests around your house is harder than it looks. The creatures seem relatively harmless so you may think it is a good idea to leave the nest alone until the bird decides to move on, but to minimize damage to your home and reduce the risk of contracting a dangerous disease, it’s best to contact Skedaddle for bird removal in Anoka County.

Our Approach to Bird Removal

The first step in the removal process is to analyze the situation. We want to know how many birds are nesting around your home, and we also need to check each nest for eggs because this information affects how we develop an effective removal strategy. We must use caution if the nest contains eggs to keep the mother from abandoning her babies.

Once we know what we are dealing with, we identify points of entry that allow birds to get into your home. Birds can find small holes in the exterior of a building and use the opening to enter homes. This is why you may find birds in your attic eaves or backyard sheds. Patching these holes ensures the birds cannot return once you remove them.

For many species, we use one-way doors that allow animals to leave buildings safely but prevent them from re-entering, but this tactic is often ineffective on birds. If the animal is living in an enclosed space such as your attic, we may have to help it find the hole it entered through. Once the bird leaves, we can move the nest outside to a more suitable location.

The final step in our removal process is to thoroughly clean any bird droppings we find. We want to minimize the risk of you contracting a dangerous disease, so we clean with special chemicals that remove all traces of germs. We can also show you different materials in your home that a bird could use to make a nest. If you eliminate potential nesting materials, birds are less likely to take up residence if they happen to get inside your home.
