Belleville’s beautiful surroundings, with its picturesque bodies of water and scenic views, has much to offer you as a homeowner. Along with your neighbours, you also share the area with an abundance of wildlife, including many species of birds. Smaller birds, including starlings and sparrows, may decide your home makes a fine nesting area, and you may not know how to evict them. At Skedaddle, we have a variety of services to assist you with this issue, along with some information about the lifestyles and habits of the birds in the Belleville area.
Birds in Belleville typically nest and raise chicks from March to August, and they usually pick a location where their babies are safe from the elements and predators as well. This may lead them to share your home with you and nest in a variety of areas, such as:
While birds are typically harmless, they may start to swoop or dive at you, your family and visitors to your home once they claim a territory. Our bird removal technicians can come to your home and remove the animals humanely, along with any nests, and identify and seal any entrances so the birds cannot return. This may include fixing torn screens and fixing netting over exterior air duct openings to make your home less inviting to nesting birds. Our technicians can also provide you with some valuable information about why birds in this area may decide to use your home as a nesting site.
The birds you see in and around Belleville are diurnal, meaning that they eat, mate and are most active during the day. They spend much of the time foraging for food for themselves and their chicks, as well as monitoring their territory. Most chicks grow quickly and depending on the species, bird parents may have more than one brood per year.
There are many different types of birds in the Belleville area because of the nearby Moira River and the Bay of Quinte, which provides them with both plenty of insect prey and fresh water as well. Most avoid humans but the lure of a safe place to nest and avoid the summer heat and fall rain may draw them to your home.
When birds decide to invite themselves into your home, the resulting mess of droppings and territorial swooping can become troublesome for everyone. Contact us today at Skedaddle for assistance and more information about how to evict unwelcome feathered friends for good.
