Our prevention plans are customized to address the specific bird threats your home faces. Our technicians are trained to install protective barriers and devices designed to make your home inhospitable to birds.
Orangeville is a city in Ontario, located north of Toronto. Orangeville sees plenty of snow in the winter, but residents generally enjoy warm, mild summers. The area is consistently ranked among the best places to live in Canada with its excellent school system, low crime rate, and beautiful green spaces. Parks, lakes, and nature reserves are abundant, making it an excellent area for hiking, biking, skiing, and other outdoor activities.
The area’s natural beauty is great for leisure, but it often means wildlife live in close proximity to residents. Birds are common in the area, and they are known to build nests in residents’ backyards. While birds do not generally pose issues, they can become a nuisance. Here is what you need to know about the birds in Orangeville and what you should do if a family of birds has made their home in your property.
There are more than 10,000 species of birds worldwide, with almost 500 being native to Canada. American Robins are the most common birds in the area, but doves, orioles, herons, and cardinals are also seen occasionally. Most bird species are comfortable around people and are commonly viewed in backyards and other public spaces. Birds typically reside in nests to lay eggs and raise their young. Nests are made of twigs and shrubs and are usually located in trees or bushes.
Birds are not aggressive and can be pleasant to view, but they can become a nuisance if they eat your vegetables or cause damage to structures on your property. Birds are not destructive, but they have been known to pull threads out of outdoor rugs or even pull screens off windows. They can also cause fire hazards by building nests with dry, brittle material within your roof or wall vents.
You may also notice excessive noise, empty bird feeders, or half-eaten vegetables if you have birds in your yard. Birds are known to eat numerous fruits and vegetables, including carrots, mangos, squash, and bell peppers. The farmland surrounding Orangeville and making up the bulk of Dufferin County is a major attractant for bird populations. If you own a farm or orchard, these animals can become a problem and account for revenue loss and spoiled crops. You should contact a pest control specialist if you suspect bird activity in your yard.
