Protect your home and business from a starling invasionWild birds cost individuals and businesses millions of dollars each year in clean-up expenses, repairs, and damage to equipment. Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control has years of experience in providing humane wildlife prevention in Rexdale and here is our best advice.
- The key to successfully managing starlings is to stop the problem before it even starts. Industrial buildings and houses need to be well maintained and all openings that are larger than one inch need to be closed off with netting or hardware cloth. Wildlife exclusion sealant works well to seal cracks and crevices where small birds could gain access to attics and soffits. Large gaps or holes in walls need to be repaired as soon as possible as these provide excellent nesting sites for birds. Galvanized steel screening can be used to prevent birds gaining access to roof and wall vents. It is important to use screening that won’t rust and stain your property.
- Even if your property is well maintained, it still provides ample nesting sites for starlings. Awnings and overhangs are perfect spots and professionally installed bird netting is your best answer to the problem. The netting not only prevents the birds from nesting, but it also provides protection from droppings.Cleaning up after birds is a messy business and if there is an accumulation of bird droppings in your chimney, attic or storage shed, it’s best to call in the experts, like Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control, to do deal with the problem.
