Springtime Means Nesting Birds

Springtime Means Nesting Birds

Pest birds are always looking for a place to roost and nest on buildings and commercial property. They need a place that’s high enough from ground predators and close enough to food and water sources. Most buildings provide these things. Signage offers warmth, security and shelter for nests. Rooftop AC units do the same, offering the warmth of electrical motors/compressors and shelter from the elements. Rooftop water towers provide all sorts of nooks and crannies for birds to build nests. Many buildings essentially invite pest birds through their open attics.

The most effective way to prevent birds from nesting around your property is to be proactive. And that means making your property less of a bird magnet. Remove any standing water or food scraps, and close all trash containers. Seal up any attics and other lofty holes and cracks where birds can enter. Once you’ve done that, it’s best to install some effective and humane bird deterrents to keep birds away.
