Extermination of harmful birds
Despite the wide variety of bird species that exist in Quebec, sooner or later everyone will have the instinct to build a nest. To this end, they look for places that will allow them to keep their eggs and young out of reach of predators and out of the elements. Unfortunately, the ideal place to make their nest is sometimes problematic.
Presence of birds
In spring, many bird species return from the south and begin their search for the ideal location to nest. Among their favorite places, many human constructions are particularly likely to be used.
This is the case of terraces, garages, cornices and soffits. Some specimens are even bolder and even go so far as to occupy dryer pipes and range hoods.
Risks associated with the presence of birds
These nests, often constructed of plant matter like twigs, can cause damage to your property. They can clog gutter systems and drains, increasing the risk of water damage.
When installed in ventilation pipes, birds can damage air conditioning or heating systems and prevent free air circulation.
In addition to problems related to nests, the presence of birds can also be a source of problems because of their droppings. Indeed, their excrement is sometimes very corrosive and can damage buildings.
Another important feature of bird droppings is that the bacteria, fungi and parasites they contain can cause a number of diseases. Examples include histoplasmosis, encephalitis, salmonella, meningitis and toxoplasmosis.
Techniques and approaches
Since bird infestation problems can take many forms and have different degrees of severity, it is necessary for a technician to first assess the situation. Once he has identified the problem, he can decide on the strategy to put in place to hunt them.
