Bird Control

Birds are an important part of our natural environment in North Carolina. As predators, they feed on insects, rodents, worms, fish and countless other animals, while game birds, song birds, hawks and other species contribute to outdoor recreation and the overall enjoyment of nature. Due to their contributions, birds are afforded significant protection by-laws, regulations and public sentiment. Public relations are an integral part of any bird management project. Lyons Wildlife Control & Removal educates our clients and the public as to why particular bird control programs and methods are necessary.

The birds that are well-known as pests, throughout the urban parts of the United States, are pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows. If you have ever tried to get rid of pigeons, you know how difficult pigeon control can be. Other birds, from hawks to swallows, can occasionally cause unexpected and unusual pest problems. When blackbirds and crows roost in suburban areas they then become pests, while Woodpeckers also peck holes into house sidings in search of insects. Seagulls can feed at food plants and other open areas where food is located, often roosting and nesting on large flat roofs.

Lyons Wildlife Control & Removal has extensive experience in geese, pigeon, and sparrow control, in addition to other various types of bird species. We practice humane tactics, and can handle the trapping and relocation of sparrows, pigeons, geese and other bird species.

Common situations involving birds as pests:

  • Roosting or nesting around human residences
  • Feeding on agricultural products
  • Destroying vegetation and contaminating foods
  • Noise, droppings, odor and feathers
  • Diseases or ectoparasites affecting man including histoplasmosis and cryptococcal disease
  • Unpleasant or hazardous working conditions

The best bird control approaches emphasize deterrents, exclusion or modification of buildings. Lyons Wildlife Control & Removal knowledgeable technicians have bird-proofing and bird control methods for any situation you may face.
