Dealing with feathered pests
Birds Removal Sunshine Coast
When most people think about dealing with pests at home, they think of the creepy crawly kind; cockroaches, ants, and spiders. There are others that think about the small and furry problem of rodents, and there are still even more that think of that one neighbourhood kid that likes to kick a soccer ball up against his garage early on a Sunday morning.
While Little Critters Pest Control can help you with the rodents and the bugs, there isn’t much we can do about the kid. Sorry.
There is one more type of home pest that some tend to overlook but can be just as devastating to your home and your weekend peace. Birds. Sure, we all love the sound of a kookaburra laughing at joke that only it knows, but what about the magpie that swoops you or the other churppies that build a nest in your porch roof, or worse, the ones that turn your car into a Jackson Pollack painting.
While some people would love it if there were a spray that we could use to take them out before they run at them with a cricket bat, you have to deal with feathered pests in a whole other way. Most native birds are protected and removing them or “taking them out” is cruel or can land you in a little of local council strife. So, you need to follow the three “R’s”; repel, relocate, reduce.
Repelling birds can be as simple as putting a fake owl statue on your porch, this natural predator can send most birds packing. There are more advanced options that Little Critter Pest Control can help you with as well as some state-of-the-art tech that is safe for you and the birds.
Relocating can be a bit trickier, but the local wide life expert or licensed bird handler will be able to help you move those birds along, or give you specialized tips for specific birds.
Now, if we say “reduce” you might get excited, but we are not talking about “ending their song” for good. We are talking about reducing the things that attract the birds to your home. Removing food sources, attractive housing, and possibly even trees can help reduce the problem you might have.
