Birds are an important part of our natural ecosystem. They feed on insects, rodents, worms, fish and countless other animals, controlling populations and annoyances. Game birds, song birds, hawks and other bird species contribute to outdoor recreation and the overall enjoyment of nature. Because of this, birds are afforded considerable protection by laws, regulations and public sentiment that controls what kind of bird control can be implemented.
However, while most birds are beneficial or neutral to the ecosystem, birds like sparrows, woodpeckers, waterfowl, pigeons, and black birds can become nuisances. While bird removal is incredibly difficult, there are measures to take to control birds and bird-proof homes. Birds become a problem when they feed on gardens; roost or nest around homes; destroy vegetation and contaminate foods; create excessive noise, droppings, odor, or feathers; are infected with diseases like histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis; or if they create unpleasant or hazardous working conditions.
