What Birds Are Considered Pests?
Many types of birds are beautiful and beneficial creatures that should be welcome in your yard. However, not all birds are welcome guests, and many are actually considered to be pests because of the health risks they pose and the damage they create. For example, pigeons, sparrows, and starlings are urban pest birds. Meanwhile, gulls are scavenging pest birds, and crows are nuisance pests as well. Other types of birds that are considered pests include swallows, grackles, and turkey vultures. Some bird experts consider geese and woodpeckers to be pests as well. What makes these birds pests is their ability to disrupt people and other animals, their tendency to cause damage to homes and gardens, and their way of contaminating environments with hazardous fecal matter.
What Birds Are Most Common in New Jersey as Pests?
In New Jersey, we definitely have our fair share of pigeons, woodpeckers, crows, starlings, and swallows. These are all common bird species in our neighborhood, and they can become very problematic to homeowners. For example, pigeons’ feces contain corrosive uric acid that causes high costs in structural damage every year. Sparrows often build nests that clog up the pipes and gutters of your home to cause damage. Woodpeckers create noise pollution, and swallows have dangerous nesting habits that cause damage to building exteriors. Starlings and crows overwhelm trees when in their flocking phase, which is a serious nuisance in New Jersey neighborhoods.
What Diseases Do Birds Carry?
Birds of varying types carry dozens of diseases that can affect humans, pets, and livestock. Pigeons, sparrows, starlings, and geese can carry everything from histoplasmosis, which is a potentially fatal respiratory disease caused by fungus on bird droppings, to candidiasis, which is a fungus or yeast infection that affects the skin, intestines, and urogenital tract. Pest birds can also carry salmonellosis, which is a form of food poisoning caused by bacteria on bird droppings, and E. coli, which is transported by birds that come in contact with cow manure. Other potential diseases carried by pest birds are a nervous system disorder called St. Louis encephalitis and a pulmonary/nervous system disease called cryptococcosis.
What Damage Do Birds Cause to the Home?
Birds can do a lot of damage to a home, which is a major reason why New Jersey homeowners call Precise Pest Control. Bird droppings damage roofs because they are acidic and eat away at household materials, such as tar roofing. Birds also build nests in the corners of roofs and in drains and gutters, which leads to clogs, poor drainage, and costly repairs. If birds get into your air conditioner or other outdoor machinery, serious repairs could be needed to fix the damage. Something else unsettling to consider is that birds increase the risk of fire on your property because nests made of twigs and straw are very flammable.
What Damage Do Birds Cause in the Garden?
Not only are pest birds a nuisance in terms of home damage, but they also put your garden at risk. Unlike the beneficial birds that actually help your garden grow, pest birds eat crops, such as blueberries and peaches. Some birds also have a tendency to dig in the dirt while looking for insects to eat, and this damages your garden soil as well. Gardeners may try using aluminum screening, plastic netting, hardware screening, paper bags, flags, string, and various chemical compounds to keep birds away from their fruits and vegetables. However, it often takes a professional exterminator to get to the root of the problem and keep birds away for good.
Bird Trapping in New Jersey
Bird control is a growing concern for home owners, businesses, and schools. Common birds found in New Jersey, including swallows, pigeons, cows, sparrows, starlings, and seagulls, can cause damage to homes and create health risks. Barn swallows and cliff swallows can ruin the eaves of your home and pigeons’ accumulated feces poses health hazards.
The answer to most bird problems isn’t solved by simply removing the problem. Removing the problem only creates an opening for the same predicament to reoccur. Our objective in bird control is to, of course, remove the problem but also prevent it from happening again.
