Frequently Asked Questions:

What are Pest Birds?

Birds that are pests are detrimental to human health or cause structural damage to buildings. The most common birds that are looked at as pests include house sparrows, gulls, starlings, and pigeons. However, all of these birds have an important role in nature. So, if these birds are being problematic, it’s important that you get help from the professionals. Learn more about pest birds!

How Can I Prevent Snakes?

The best way to prevent snakes is to deprive them of food, shelter, and places to hibernate. Snakes burrow under shaded and stationary shelter where they can stay cool and go unnoticed. Clear away yard clutter such as piles of leaves, lumber, or compost. Cut your grass short and trim your bushes and hedges regularly. It’s also important to keep other small animals (snake snacks) away from your yard. Learn more about how to keep these pesky pests away!

How Do You Control Problematic Wildlife?

The best way to control problematic wildlife depends on what type of pest you’re dealing with. However, for the majority of nuisance wildlife, it is beneficial if you inspect and repair window screens, trim trees away from your home, keep garbage containers secure, relocate bird feeders, keep pet food inside, and more. Learn more about how to keep problematic wildlife away from your property!

What Nuisance Wildlife is Most Active in the Fall?

The most common nuisance animals in the fall are rats and mice. They don’t hibernate and they remain active during colder months. Along with rodents, other animals that are active in the fall include skunks, bats, racoons, and squirrels. Some of these animals become dormant in colder months, but they may seek shelter in your home. Learn more about problematic wildlife in the fall!
