Birds can pose a significant threat to businesses, especially in the food industry, such as food processing factories, bakeries and food warehouses. When they become an inside problem, it can be difficult to control the bird problem.
Common problems associated with bird invasion include damage to building structures due to nesting and the spread of diseases (through their droppings) such as salmonellosis. As a result, companies need to take costly steps to clean and repair their buildings and replace products.
Are All Bird Species Pests?
Most bird species do not cause problems in urban environments and are truly welcomed, while other species quickly become annoying as their numbers grow and they prosper in the human food supply. The most common bird species that cause problems in buildings are:
- Indian myna
- House sparrows
Controlling birds does not necessarily mean killing them, as there are wildlife laws that protect them. It is important to learn about these laws before tackling bird control. Your best option is to consult a pest control specialist to solve the problem.

Pest Control Pros Bird Removal Methods
- Bird spikes

We do our best to avoid extermination and rather relocate them. Removing all birds from the site, even temporarily, is essential to prevent them from being caught by the solution that should be keeping them out in the first place. We are careful not to harm the birds or separate the young birds from their parents while capturing them. Culling is rarely the solution we rely on. If we are sure that there are no young birds, we use ultrasound to keep them away from your property. Our nets and cages used during the capture process have been approved by relevant authorities.
