Birds & Bats
When we say flyers, we refer to any outside
animal with wings. These animals like to make
their nests just about anywhere including your roof, rafters,
and any crevice and or nook they can find. While they look
nice and soft on the outside, wild birds and bats should
not be touched or handled. They can carry a wide variety
of diseases and parasites, including bugs and fleas.
These animals are also not at all shy in
leaving their droppings anywhere they pass by. Their droppings
are the exact thing that germs and diseases look for to
start growing. It smells bad, and it's just plain gross.
Fortunately these animals can be controlled,
removed, and taken care of.

more about it
No one wants to buy a bat building or, for that matter, live in a building occupied by bats. Bat guano looks like mouse fecal matter, but crumbles or powders when touched. Not only do property values decrease by as much as five to ten percent with the infestation of bats, but many health concerns arise. Bats can be eliminated from occupying structures, while bats that roost on the outside of buildings can be controlled.
Pigeons live on roofs, in attics, and feed on properties. Pigeons also carry many diseases and spread bird mites. They can be controlled and removed from a structure.
| Woodpeckers / Flickers
Woodpeckers destroy stucco and wood, as well as spread bird mites. If woodpeckers are not prevented from nesting on buildings, they can return each year. Since they are federally protected, live techniques are used prior to lethal techniques. Live techniques typically work within days and are set up on a monthly basis to control woodpecker activity. If damage persists to the structure, lethal techniques can be used in accordance with federal laws. Woodpeckers are controllable.
Swallows attach mud nests to buildings and create structural staining and damage. The most serious damage done by swallows is the infestation of an insect called the swallow bug, or nose-coned bug. Much like bed bugs or lice, the nose-cone bug infests a home in the carpet, human hair, and bedding areas. Swallows can be completely controlled. However, during the nesting season and while eggs or hatchlings are in the nest, swallows are protected by federal law and cannot be disturbed. Swallows will return each year, typically to their own birth site.
Like swallows, magpies are protected by federal law and can cause damage to buildings as well as destroy the nests of other animals and birds. They are extremely protective of their young and can defend their territory by attacking those that they see as a threat. Magpies are controllable.
Starlings are very similar to magpies. Though they are not
protected by federal law, they are territorial and protective
of their young. Starlings and the damage they cause can
There are many different species of ducks. They are federally protected and migrate annually. They are usually found in marshlands and forest areas. They quack, and fly in a V-shape pattern. Ducks feed on marsh plants and roots and grasses and small fish. They attract raccoons and other predators and in mass numbers can devastate crops. These can be controlled.
Geese are known to wipe out fields of corn, grain, and wheat in mass numbers. These animals can be controlled.
Blackbirds come in flocks of thousands and can be trapped with large cage traps and special lures. There are other scare techniques and repellants that are effective against blackbirds.
Crows come in large flocks and have a tendency to damage and destroy eggs from pheasants and other birds. Crows can be controlled.
Eagles are a protected bird--our national symbol.
Hawks are protected.
Owls are protected.
Seagulls are a benefit in a sense that they devour many insects. Believe it or not, Utah crops in the early 1800's were saved by huge flocks of seagulls.
Birds are a serious hazard to aviation.
A bird or a flock of birds that suddenly
rises from a runway or surrounding
area may collide with incoming or
departing aircraft and cause the aircraft
to crash, possibly resulting in the
loss of human life.
