Disease transmission by pest birds has been well documented. Pest birds can create public health risks and can be a threat to the food or feed produced. Every pest bird situation is unique, and needs to be evaluated. APS works closely with regulatory agencies and industry experts to help determine the best option. The types of birds we deal with most are the House Sparrow, Feral Pigeons, European Starlings, Canada Geese and Sea Gulls. The first question asked should always be, 'what can be done to your property to make your property less attractive to the birds, or to take away their nesting or roosting sites?' You can count on us to give you a fair assessment, and options to get the results you need.
House Sparrows, Feral Pigeons and European Starlings
These 3 birds can be a huge problem at some businesses. The first option is to build the out or take away their food source. Make sure to eliminate any outside spillage and keep your dumpsters closed. Dock overhangs can easily be netted to take away their nesting areas. Netting works every time. If netting is not an option, ask APS what other options are available for exclusion.
As the last option, Avicides can be used to reduce the population.
