Pest Bird Removal and Bird-Proofing in Metro Atlanta

Many of people are unaware that birds can be considered pests. But it's true. There are three bird species -- pigeons, sparrows, and starlings -- that are officially considered "pest birds" and which can be controlled by lethal or non-lethal methods. There are even pesticides labeled for those three species of birds. They're called "avicides." Other bird species are considered "nuisance wildlife" and come under different regulations depending on their species.

Regardless of the species, Rid-A-Critter practices safe, humane, non-chemical bird control that relies on exclusion and other non-chemical bird-control methods. Although we're licensed to use pesticides against birds, we complete most of bird control jobs completely non-chemically. Once in a while we'll use repellants as a temporary measure, but that's about it.

We prefer non-chemical methods like bird exclusion ("bird-proofing") because it's a safer, better, more permanent, and more environmentally-responsible way to control birds. As is the case with pest control in general, using pesticides to control birds is a short-term solution with no long-term effectiveness. Exclusion, on the other hand, provides safe, long-lasting control with zero risk of accidentally poisoning non-target birds or other wildlife.

When do Birds Become Pests

In short, birds can be a nuisance when their presence in some place presents a physical or health hazard, or when the birds or their feathers and droppings damage property. For example:

Rid-A-Critter is Metro Atlanta's pest bird control leader. We provide safe, humane, non-lethal, long-lasting bird control throughout the Atlanta area and suburbs.

We service all kinds of locations including single-family homes, multiple dwellings, condominiums, hotels and motels, airports, parking garages, malls and department stores, power plants and generating stations, factories, churches and other houses of worship, government buildings, and anywhere else birds are creating a nuisance or health hazard.

We're not "bird exterminators." We don't use poisons to kill birds or make them sick. Instead, we use long-lasting, non-chemical, environmentally-sound bird control methods that are kind to both the birds and the customer's wallet. Our exclusion-based bird management consists of:

Once we're done with the bird-removal and bird-proofing work, our technicians clean up the mess. We remove and cart away any nesting materials, feathers, droppings, egg shells, and whatever other mess the birds left behind. If necessary, we also apply insecticides to kill any displaced parasites.

Another service we offer is something called Dry Under Decks. Many customers call us to have this system installed even if they don't have a bird or animal problem because Dry Under Decks is also a rain-management system that keeps the space under your deck dry so it can be used.

You can think of the Dry Under Decks system as sort of an outdoor ceiling. It's installed under your existing deck, and it catches the rainwater and condensation and channels it away to the rain gutter system. It's a simple idea, but it works very well. It also prevent birds from building nests up there, which is also a good thing if you plan on spending any time under the deck.

The Dry Under Decks system comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Please contact us if you'd like more information.

Just enjoying this Georgia weather this weekend. At my parents house fishing and noticed the wildlife out here where they belong. They can become a nuisance though when they find their way inside your home. In that case give us a call.

Down here on Lake Blackshear quoting a home with what was thought to be bats. After evaluating the home it turns out to be Chimney Swifts which can’t be relocated due to being a migratory bird. We’ll be back to cap flue when they’re gone.
