Nuisance Bird Trapping & Relocation

The Wildlife Biologists at Bauer Wildlife provide expert solutions to your nuisance bird problem. If you have any of the following issues in your home or business, give us a call to solve your unwanted wildlife or pest control issues.


Bauer Wildlife offers nuisance bird removal, trapping, exclusion, and relocating services. Due to the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, many species of birds cannot be trapped or relocated. However, there are several exotic invasive species of birds that we can help to control.

Migratory Bird Treaty Act

migratory bird act

What is the Migratory Bird Treaty?

Stated most simply, the MBTA is a law that protects birds from people. When Congress passed the MBTA in 1918, it codified a treaty already signed with Canada (then part of Great Britain) in response to the extinction or near-extinction of a number of bird species, many of which were hunted either for sport or for their feathers.

According to the USFWS: “The MBTA provides that it is unlawful to pursue, hunt, take, capture, kill, possess, sell, purchase, barter, import, export, or transport any migratory bird, or any part, nest, or egg or any such bird, unless authorized under a permit issued by the Secretary of the Interior. Some regulatory exceptions apply. To take is defined in regulations as: ‘pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or attempt to pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect.’ ”

Effective Bird Control Starts With the Right Professionals

Bauer Wildlife uses an exclusive, harmless method to remove birds from your property and keep them from coming back. Our meticulously-trained, knowledgeable staff can deter birds from your property, locate and remove nests, and sanitize the area. Our bird control process also involves a deterrent system which will prevent these pests from setting up nests somewhere else on your property.

Our Wildlife Biologists are compliant with all relevant state and federal laws for bird infestation removal. As a licensed, humane animal removal company, we are able to identify the specific issue causing problems on your property, execute an effective solution for its removal, and prevent the issue from returning in the future. We can do this while precluding your property from further damage, and can repair the damage caused by nuisance wildlife.

Bird infestations require a different response than infestations by other animals do. The particularities of birds’ abilities and behaviors mean that basic trapping schedules and methods will be ineffective. Because of this, if you see birds coming into your property, you need to call Bauer Wildlife immediately. The more time you attempt to trap and remove birds without success, the more time you give them to settle in. As the birds continue to adjust to the shelter your property provides, the more stubbornly aggressive they will become in the infestation.

Bird Nest Removal Laws

Before removing, altering, or interfering with a bird nest in any way, determine whether or not the disturbance is legal according to local, regional, and national wildlife laws. Most birds are protected species and tampering with a nest could lead to hefty fines or other penalties. In the United States, for example, it is illegal to remove or destroy any active nest from a native bird species, defined as a nest with eggs or brooding adults in it. If the nest has been abandoned or no eggs have yet been laid, it can be removed or destroyed as needed. Nests of invasive birds, such as house sparrows or European starlings, however, are not protected at any time. Laws in other countries may vary, and before interfering with any nest, it is best to properly identify the bird species and learn how local laws could apply to your actions.

Why Remove Nests?

In certain circumstances it may be necessary and desirable to remove bird nests, both for safety and convenience. Proper reasons to remove nests include:

  • The nest has been abandoned after the breeding season has ended.
  • The nest is currently unused and has become dilapidated and unsafe for future use.
  • The nest is in a birdhouse that needs to be cleaned out for future residents or winter use.
  • The nest is in a dangerous location and brooding birds could become stressed or injured.

In most cases, it is only after the nesting season has ended and the birds have moved on that nests can and should be removed. If the birds have built their nests in poor locations, however, the nest may need to be removed earlier to safeguard both the adults and the chicks they hope to raise. Unsafe locations typically include:

  • Near a door or busy walkway
  • Inside a gutter or drainage pipe
  • Inside connected dryer vents
  • Inside an active chimney

Nests You Shouldn’t Remove

Some nests should never be removed unless the proper wildlife authorities are consulted or there are absolutely no other options to keep the nesting birds safe. These nests include:

  • Endangered birds that are unlikely to build a new nest if disturbed.
  • Nests of large birds, such as herons or raptors, that will be reused for many years.
  • Raptor and owl nests where defending adults can be aggressive and dangerous.
  • Natural cavities that would be destroyed in order to remove the nest.
  • Any nest in early summer that may be reused for additional broods.
  • Nests that would be unsafe or dangerous for humans to reach and remove.

When in doubt, call our pest control experts at Bauer Wildlife for nest removal services. Our Wildlife Biologists are trained in proper baby bird and nest removal. In addition, we are well versed in the laws & regulations that protect nesting birds.

Bird Exclusion

Birds fluttering in your chimney, nesting in your garage, or perching near your front door? Woodpeckers pecking on your house? Sometimes they just need a little convincing that they belong elsewhere! There are many ways to keep birds in the trees, where they belong.

What is Bird Exclusion?

Using a combination of materials such as fitted chimney caps, dryer vent covers, visual and audio deterrents. These useful bird deterrents make your property less inviting to birds without causing them any harm. Our pest control experts will also repair any areas of your home or business that may be an open conduit for birds to enter.

birds in vents removal services

There are many problems that are associated with having birds in the vents of your home; some of the problems include lice and mites. Most of the time this is in either in the kitchen or in the bathrooms that are usually near a bedroom. Most customers will complain of bugs falling down inside the bathroom from the vent areas. Once the problem becomes this bad it is only curable by a professional trained to treat these pests.

Other problems that could arise is ventilation problems, as the nesting material can completely block the air flow within the vent. This could be particularly bad if the birds build the nest in a gas vent or another vent that is critical to the operation of the home. Give our Wildlife Biologists a call to take care of the nest removal, sanitation and exclusion repairs necessary to eradicate the problem.

birds in attic removal services

Pigeons, Barn Swallows, Starlings, House Finches, and House Sparrows are all candidates for birds in a house or attic. Sometimes they'll just roost under the eaves, or in the eaves on the soffit, but often they will enter the attic given access.

Birds in your attic can cause many problems. First of all, their excrement can be a host for mold growth, which may contain certain pathogens. Don't touch it, and be careful breathing around it. In addition, the excrement can attract bugs like cockroaches. Birds also bring in nesting material, which can be dirty or clog vents or cause a fire hazard. Birds can also bring in lice and bird mites which can get in the house and bite.

To remove birds in the attic, it is best to call our Wildlife Biologists at Bauer Wildlife. Our pest control experts will perform any necessary bird trapping & removal services, sanitation and exclusion repairs so these pests cannot return.

The Wildlife Biologists at Bauer Wildlife highly recommend bird netting as an effective form of exclusion. Our trained specialists can conduct proper set up and installation of bird netting exclusion for your home or business.

common nuisance birds

Common nuisance birds

  • Red bellied woodpeckers
  • Starlings
  • Pigeons
  • Sparrows
  • Crows
  • Sea gulls
  • Canadian geese

house sparrow invasive bird species

House sparrows are the smallest of the unprotected birds at about 6½ inches long and weighing less than an ounce. Both genders are mostly brown with black streaks above and grayish below. Males have a black throat-bib flanked by white spots. Immature male house sparrows look like females. Do not confuse house sparrows with native sparrows (chipping sparrow, grasshopper sparrow, song sparrow) that are beneficial and protected by federal and state regulations. Calls of sparrows are easily identified by a loud and repetitive “chirp.”

starling bird infestation & removal services

European starlings are robin-sized, short-tailed black birds about 8½ inches long, and weigh about 3 ounces. Plumage color changes with gender and season. In summer, adults are glossy black with light speckles. In winter, birds have larger speckles, making them look browner from a distance. The dark pointy beak becomes bright yellow in spring. Both males and females have pinkish-red color on their legs. Calls of starlings are quite diverse as they can mimic the sounds of other birds.

pigeon nuisance bird removal

Pigeons are the largest of the 3 species, at about 12 inches long, and weigh 12 to 17 ounces. They typically are blue-gray with two black bands on the wings, and a black band on the tail that contrasts with its white rump. Color ranges from all white to mottled brown to grey/ black. Calls of pigeons consist of a soft and throaty cooing.

pigeon deterrent and repellent to scare birds

How to Get Rid of Pigeons

There are many humane options for deterring pigeons from landing or nesting. It is important to do a good cleanup of any bird droppings or nesting materials before any product is installed.

1.  Install pigeon control products such as pigeon spikes or bird netting to block pigeons form getting back to the area they have chosen to roost, perch or nest.  If you make affected areas inaccessible, the pigeons will be forced to move on to a new location.

2.  Physical pigeon control products like pigoen spikes are effective on ledges, beams, signs, windowsills, rooflines and other areas pigeons have decided to land.

3.  Electric track systems are ideal for treating ledges and rooflines or anywhere aesthetics are a concern.

Humane Removal / Professional Installer

If you do not have the time, resources or expertise to solve your pigeon problem, our Wildlife Biologists at Bauer Wildlife can take care of your pigeon infestation.  Our pest control professionals can install pigeon control products and offer other services such as cleanup, humane trapping and removal.

pigeon trapping services

Bird control measures such as bird proofing will be most effective if most of the pigeons are removed first by trapping. Where a colony of pigeons is roosting or feeding in a confined and isolated area, trapping can be the primary control tactic.

Types of Traps

Pigeon traps have one-way entrances: the pigeons push the doors in to enter the trap but they can’t get out again. Pigeon traps vary greatly in size — from a large walk-in trap, 4 to 6 feet high, to a low-profile trap about 8 inches high and 2 to 3 feet long. Depending on size, low-profile traps can hold 15 to 30 pigeons at a time.

Trap Placement

Feeding areas are the best trap sites but these are rarely on the same property as roosting sites. Mostly you’ll be placing traps in roosting areas. The most difficult part of trapping in these sites is getting the birds to feed in a non-feeding area so that they will follow the bait to the trap.

pigeons causing damage to roof tiles

Birds sometimes build their nests under roofing tiles, which can dislodge the tiles and allows leaks to happen. Here are a few solutions that our experts at Bauer Wildlife can perform to keep pesky birds from nesting under your tile roof.

Install Tile Roof Eave Closures

Eaves are the edges of the roof which overhang the face of a wall. Small gaps exist underneath tile roof eaves that birds can nestle in. To keep out the birds, you need eave closures, otherwise known as bird stop. Current roof code requires bird stop on new roofs and replacement roofs if you’re completely changing out the tile. However, tile roof removal and replacement, where we remove your tile, replace your underlayment and then replace your existing tile is grandfathered from that requirement.

Replace Any Missing Tiles Promptly

Not only can missing tiles let birds easily nest in your roof, it allows the underlayment, the material that keeps out water, to quickly deteriorate. Our Wildlife Biologists at Bauer Wildlife are experienced in both wildlife removal and exclusion repairs or damage caused by wildlife. We have completed hundreds of roof tile and soffit repairs due to bird damage.

dangers of bird diseases

Their ability to spread a range of diseases is why a select species of bird such as pigeons and gulls are regarded as pests.

For businesses this can be problematic as it puts both staff and customers at risks, generating a negative impact on revenue, public opinion and staff retention. This can be particularly problematic for businesses operating within the food industry, as a bird infestation, along with the diseases they spread, can conflict with food safety standards and regulations, resulting in the contamination of food products and outbreaks of food-borne diseases.

The main species of bird which are responsible for spreading diseases are Pigeons; gulls; sparrows and starlings.

Like most pests, there is a range of factors which contribute to how birds spread diseases.  However, the main sources are:

  • Feces
  • Feathers
  • Nests

Bird feces

Bird feces, and in particular the droppings from pigeons, gulls, starlings and house sparrows, is the primary reason behind the spread of diseases by birds. Essentially, bird feces act as a giant sponge for pathogens. Although in small doses it isn't harmful, when infestations reach large numbers, the build up of bird feces can result in an increased risk of exposure.

Bird feathers

Although not as common as bird feces, feathers can also be responsible for the spread of diseases. A bird’s feather, particularly from those living in an urban environment, can often play host to a range of parasites, bacteria and viruses. However, it is primarily the feathers of a dead bird which carry said diseases. It’s important to note that the chances of catching a disease from bird feathers are very slim.

Bird nests

Bird nests can also be held responsible for the spread of diseases. Bird nest can be the perfect breeding site for certain species of fungi, which can spread through debris. To add to this, bird nests can also be a great home for parasites and other insects. In some cases said insects and parasites are known vectors of specific diseases, which can result in human transmission.

How can you catch a bird disease?

There are a few mediums in which you can catch a disease from a bird, with some being more common than others. They are:

  • Inhaling – When bird droppings dry and become disturbed, any diseases living in the feces can become airborne.
  • Eating – Consuming food products contaminated with bacteria, fungi, or viruses spread by birds.
  • Drinking – Similar to eating. Drinking contaminated water and other drink products can lead to infection.
  • Touching – Dead birds can play hosts to a range of harmful bacteria, fungi, and viruses.
  • Insect bites – Biting insects can become infected with a disease from biting a bird. Accumulating a bite from an infected insect can lead to infection.

Types of diseases spread by birds

It is believed that birds can carry over 60 different diseases which have the potential to infect both humans and livestock.

The main diseases which birds can transmit can be broken down into 3 categories, they are:

  • Bacterial
  • Fungal
  • Viral

Bacterial diseases

Below is a list of the common bacterial diseases spread by birds.

Psittacosis

  • Often referred to as Parrot Fever
  • Zoonotic disease caused by the Chlamydophila psittaci bacterium
  • Infection occurs from inhaling airborne particles found in respiratory secretions, faces, and feathers of infected birds
  • Symptoms start to show 5-19 days after infection
  • The first week of infections shows symptoms similar to typhoid fever such as abdominal pain, headaches, and diarrhoea to name a few.

Salmonellosis

  • Caused by Salmonella sp. Bacterium
  • Infection occurs from consuming food and drink contaminated with infected bird feces.
  • Symptoms occur 12 to 72 hours after infection and include (but not limited to) diarrhea, fever, vomiting and nausea.
  • Recovery usually occurs without medical treatment.

Fungal diseases

Bird feces provide a suitable breeding ground for a range of fungi which can lead to certain diseases.

Cryptococcosis

  • Also referred to as cryptococcal disease
  • Caused by the systemic pathogenic yeasts Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii
  • Carried in the intestines of birds
  • Found worldwide in soil. When it becomes disturbed the fungus contaminates the air and transmission occur through inhaling.
  • Affects lungs and central nervous system.

Histoplasmosis

  • Caused by Histoplasma sp. Fungus.
  • Like with Cryptococcosis, transmission occurs through inhaling air contaminated with the fungus spores. Air becomes contaminated when infected soil is disturbed.
  • Generally, breathing in spores doesn't result in any health risks. A mild fever may develop.

Viral diseases

Two of the most common viral diseases spread by birds are Avian Influenza and West Nile Virus.

Avian Influenza

  • Commonly known as bird flu
  • Caused by the influenza A strain of the influenza virus
  • Rarely infects humans, but can spread from person to person.
  • Human infections have been a result of direct contact with infected birds and exposure to contaminated environments.
  • There have been rare cases of infection occurring through consuming food contaminated with raw contaminated poultry blood.

Newcastle Disease

  • Belongs to the genus Avulavirus of the avian paramyxoviruses.
  • Was first discovered in 1927 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, hence the name.
  • A big issue for poultry farms
  • Can cause mild conjunctivitis and influenza-like symptoms in humans.

West Nile Virus

  • Generally regarded as a mosquito-borne disease
  • Belongs to the same virus family as Dengue, and Zika.
  • Birds are a reservoir of the disease.

Furthermore, mosquitoes become infected through biting infected birds and transmit the disease to people when they bite.

Professional pest control

The best way to prevent birds, and limit the potential for them to spread diseases is to enlist the help our Wildlife Biologists. Our bird control experts have a range of solutions available from bird spikes and netting to hawking, which can effectively deter and prevent pest birds from infesting your property.

bird dropping diseases

Examples of transmissible bird diseases associated with invasive bird species:

  • Histoplasmosis
  • Candidiasis
  • Cryptococcosis
  • Louis Encephalitis
  • Salmonellosis
  • E. coli

Besides being direct carriers of disease, nuisance birds are frequently associated with over 50 kinds of ectoparasites, which can work their way throughout structures to infest and bite humans. About two-thirds of these pests may be detrimental to the general health and well-being of humans and domestic animals.

bird ectoparasites

A few examples of ectoparasites include:

Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) may consume up to five times their own weight in blood drawn from hosts which include humans and some domestic animals. In any extreme condition, victims may become weak and anemic. Pigeons, starlings and house sparrows are known to carry bed bugs.

Chicken mites (Dermanyssus gallinae) are known carriers of encephalitis and may also cause fowl mite dermatitis and acariasis. While they subsist on blood drawn from a variety of birds, they may also attack humans. They have been found on pigeons, starlings and house sparrows.

Yellow mealworms (Tenebrio molitor), perhaps the most common beetle parasites of people in the United States, live in pigeon nests. It is found in grain or grain products, often winding up in breakfast cereals, and may cause intestinal canthariasis and hymenolespiasis.

West Nile Virus while West Nile is technically not transmitted to humans from birds, humans can get infected by the bite of a mosquito who has bitten an infected bird. The obvious lesson is that the fewer birds there are in any given area, the better. This translates into a smaller chance of an infected bird in that area, a smaller chance of a mosquito biting an infected bird and then biting a human.

In the event that a dead bird is in a vent, crawl space, attic or divider walls of your home or business, now is the time to call a professional. Dead animals spread diseases and attract maggots. In addition, even breathing the air amidst a dead animal can pose health risks. Our Wildlife Biologists at Bauer Wildlife are trained in dead bird removal and the sanitation services required to ensure there is no longer any ectoparasites or bird diseases that can effect the health of humans or pets.

If you find a dead bird in your yard due to a window collision or natural death, please take the following DIY precautions or give Bauer Wildlife pest control experts a call to handle the situation.

  • Avoid touching the dead bird with your bare hands. Ensure that your clothing does not come in contact with the dead bird or any blood, secretions or feces from the dead bird.
  • Use gloves or multiple heavy-duty plastic bags to pick up the dead bird.
  • Grasp the dead bird with your hand inside the plastic bags. Turn the plastic bags inside-out over the dead bird so the dead bird is now inside the plastic bags and your hands are on the outside of the plastic bags. Be sure that the beak or claws do not puncture the bags.
  • Tightly seal the two bags.
  • Dispose of the "double-bagged" bird carcass by placing it in a trash container. Ensure that the trash container is secure from children and animals while awaiting pickup from your refuse company.
  • WASH YOUR HANDS thoroughly with warm water and soap after disposal. If you wore gloves to dispose of the dead bird, wash your gloved hands and then wash your bare hands thoroughly after you have removed the gloves.

owl trapping and relocation services

Appearance

Owls come in many shapes and sizes, ranging from the 5 to 6 inch average length of tiny elf owls to the imposing 25 to 30 inch size of great horned owls. Most owls have patterns in their plumage that help them blend in with their environment. Great horned owls have mottled brown feathers that grow white beneath their wings, large yellow eyes, and plumicorns atop their heads, which resemble a pair of horns. Barn owls, on the other hand, have white or light gray plumage on their faces and breasts and brown wing feathers mottled with gray spots. They have heart-shaped faces with a pair of strikingly dark eyes. Their long, soft feathers allow them to glide noiselessly through the air.

Habitat

Forests are the preferred habitat of most owls. They like to make nests in tree cavities or usurp the nests of other creatures. Barn owls are unique in the sense that they are not as wary of humans as other species and will make their nests in barn lofts or atop ornamental palm trees. Both barn owls and great horned owls like to hunt for small animals in open fields at night and nest where they can conveniently find food.

Entry

Are owls known to enter homes or yards?
The only type of owl that may enter buildings is the barn owl, as they like to make their nests in the lofty rafters of barns and unused attics. Yards and fields where small animals are raised attract the nocturnal birds, and farmers who keep free-range chickens, rabbits, or other small creatures may experience overnight losses. Great horned owls are most notorious for such behavior and even go after pets like house cats and small dogs. Barn owls typically prefer to stick to small rodents such as rats, mice, voles, and squirrels.

Damage

Do owls harm people or property?
Great horned owls are known to attack people who stumble too close to nests housing young chicks or eggs, but owls generally do not attack or prey upon humans. Other than their consumption of small livestock and pets, owls do no harm to property. In most cases, the presence of owls is considered extremely beneficial to humans as they keep rodent populations in check.

Control and Safety

Keeping predatory owls away from livestock can be as simple as providing shelter for chickens, rabbits, or other creatures to gather in at night. Great horned owls generally make only one kill per night, which gives farmers time to make habitat modifications before losses are significant. Clearing trees and potential perches within 100 yards of animal enclosures and taking measures to frighten the birds away, such as erecting scarecrows, may prove effective, as well.

Trapping and Removal

Great horned owls, screech owls & barn owls can cause serious damage to hands and arms with their talons and should never be handled except by a trained expert. If problematic owl populations threaten the safety of humans and pets, contact our Wildlife Biologists at Bauer Wildlife. Our specialists are trained in the safe and humane removal of the birds.

hawk trapping and removal services

How to Identify Hawks

Found nationwide, hawks are classified as either accipiter or buteo varieties. Buteo hawks, with their long, broad wings and short, fan-like tails, are plentiful in most areas of the United States. Red-tailed hawks are one of the most frequently seen species, with rich brown feathers above a pale underbelly. Additionally, these raptors have broad, rounded wings and a short, cinnamon red tail.

Accipiter hawks, with their short, rounded wings and long tails, are secretive in nature and observed much less than other varieties. Cooper's hawks and sharp-shinned hawks are powerful raptors, with slate-gray backs and reddish-brown undersides.

Detection

It is not unusual to see hawks perching on telephone poles or circling over large fields in search of prey. These birds feed on a variety of animals, including other birds, mice, and even small cats and dogs. Though they typically roost in areas with plenty of trees, sometimes these raptors nest close to homes in order to be near their next meal. Because most hawks are large in size, people often think they look like eagles. However, eagles have heavier bodies and massive beaks.

Dangers & Control

Problems occur when hawks attack prey in yards, which can be noisy and result in property damage. Their aggressive behavior at nesting sites can be disruptive as well. After hawks have finished their meal, they will regurgitate pellets containing bones and other indigestible materials onto yards. The pests also occasionally feast on beloved pets, causing homeowners outrage and sorrow. Since hawks are protected by law, residents often have trouble removing them from their property. Contact our Wildlife Biologists at Bauer Wildlife to safely and effectively manage these unwanted predators.

House sparrows (Passer domesticus), European starlings (Sturnus vulgaris), and pigeons (Columa livia) are non-native species that cause a variety of problems in both urban and rural areas.  Birds may contaminate areas with their messy nests and droppings. Others consume and damage fruits and grains. Some kill or compete with native birds for nesting sites.

Legal Status

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act does not protect these species because they are not native to the United States. However, some states and communities may restrict management. Before initiating control activities, accurately identify the species, as they can be easily confused with protected birds. Refrain from trying novel methods that may cause suffering and impacts to non-target species.

Identification

Unprotected birds include the house sparrow, European starling, and pigeon, also known as the rock dove.

Species Range

All 3 species of unprotected birds are found throughout the northeast, especially where there are people and human-altered environments.

Health and Safety Concerns

These birds can carry and transmit diseases that are infectious to humans.  Diseases of particular concern include aspergillosis, histoplasmosis, psittacosis, and salmonellosis. In addition, all 3 species may pose significant hazards with bird-aircraft strikes at airports.

General Biology, Reproduction, and Behavior

Reproduction

Female house sparrows lay 3 to 9 eggs in a single clutch, and may nest twice a year beginning in early April. Female starlings lay 4 to 6 eggs per clutch and can also nest twice a year. Pigeons mate year-round, but most of their 5 to 6 broods produced annually are raised during the spring and summer, when temperatures are above freezing. Females usually lay 2 eggs per clutch.
