Residential Bird Removal in Portland


As Portlanders I think we can all agree that Birds are a wonderful and natural part of our environment, but they can often become a nuisance when they invade our homes and attics. This makes bird removal a vital aspect of building maintenance. Birds can cause damage to property and create a mess with their droppings. They can also be noisy and disrupt sleep. In addition, birds can carry diseases that can be harmful to humans, especially if their droppings are not cleaned up properly. 

If you have a bird infestation in your attic or around your home, it’s important to take action to remove them as soon as possible. Here are some methods for proper bird removal:

  1. Identify the species of bird. Different birds require different methods of bird removal, so it’s important to know what kind of bird you are dealing with. Some birds, like pigeons, are considered pests and can be legally trapped and removed. Other birds, like owls and hawks, are protected by law and cannot be removed without a permit.
  2. Use non-toxic methods. One way to remove birds from your attic or around your home is to use non-toxic methods like scare tactics. This can include placing fake owls or snakes near the area where the birds are roosting, playing loud music or using ultrasonic devices that emit high-pitched sounds that birds find irritating. Non-toxic bird removal methods are often the best place to start.
  3. Repellents. There are many commercial bird repellents available that can be applied to areas where birds are roosting. These repellents work by creating an unpleasant sensation for birds and can discourage them from returning to the area. However, it’s important to use these products carefully and follow all instructions to avoid harm to birds or humans. If you use repellents for bird removal, ensure that you read the label and follow it exactly. 
  4. Professional bird removal. If you are dealing with a large infestation or are unsure how to safely remove birds, it’s best to call a professional pest control company. They will have the experience and tools necessary to safely and humanely remove birds from your home or attic. Bird removal is something that you can often attempt to do on your own – but make sure you consider the cost before jumping into something potentially regulated. 

If left untreated, a bird infestation can have negative consequences for your home and your health. Birds can damage property and create a health hazard with their droppings. They can also attract other pests like rodents and insects. In addition, birds can be noisy and disrupt sleep, which can affect your quality of life.

A bird infestation can also have financial consequences for businesses. For example, if a restaurant has a bird infestation, it can affect the restaurant’s reputation and result in lost business. In addition, if birds are nesting in a building’s HVAC system, it can lead to increased maintenance costs and decreased efficiency.

If you have a bird infestation in your attic or around your home, it’s important to take action to remove them as soon as possible. As we discussed above, there are many methods for effective bird removal, including non-toxic methods, trapping, repellents, and professional removal. If you are unsure how to safely remove birds, it’s best to call a professional pest control company or a local bird removal expert.

My shop has had an infestation of rats for over 9 years! I tried traps and occasionally caught a rat but always they came back. On their first visit we discovered two entry points for the rats and plugged them up. After a few rats caught, my shop has returned to normalcy. Thank you Pest Patrol.
