What types of birds nest on my roof?
Starlings, blackbirds and sparrows construct extremely messy nests consisting of dried leaves, twigs, and grass. When bird nests are disturbed, the nesting produces large amounts of easily inhaled airborne dust and debris. This nesting debris can result in a very unhealthy situation when mixed with droppings. All of these bird species are also bird mite carriers, a parasite that feeds on birds’ blood. For mites to thrive, densely packed nests present an ideal environment. Bird mites will scatter and jump on to humans when removing a bird’s nest. For these reasons, when dealing with birds in vents, personal protective gear should always be worn.
When removing both adult and young birds from a vent, meticulous care should always be taken when handling the birds and nesting so the disease from their nesting area is not transferred and the birds are handled humanely. Birds generally select nesting sites that are above 7 feet in height for protection from predators. This implies that working from a ladder requires accessing the nest and removing the babies. To prevent any falls or injuries, Affordable Wildlife Removal technicians are fully trained in ladder safety. To help you solve your bird problem, we can reach any height safely.
You will need to access the pipe in the back once you have reached the exterior vent cover. When approaching a starling nest, always be careful as they will often dart out unexpectedly from the vent, potentially causing you to lose your grip or balance on the ladder. In most cases, by removing the vent cover entirely, access is most easily provided. From UV exposure, plastic vent covers quickly become brittle. In most cases, without damage, the vent cover can not be removed, and a replacement must be installed later.
With a bit of noise and probing, adult birds often exit a vent system under their own power. It is essential to determine if there are babies inside the vent once the adults are out. For several weeks after birth, baby birds do not leave the nest and depend on their parents for food and nourishment. Only through hands-on techniques can babies be removed. Before securing the vent cover, all birds must be removed. Birds locked inside your vent are going to die, causing foul odors, maggots, and flies.
How can i get to the birds nest without being harmed?
It can be challenging to determine the presence of baby birds because the length of the exhaust pipe and the nesting material will reduce your ability to see and hear. To access the nest and any baby birds inside, special tools and equipment are often required. Depending on the home’s layout and construction, every bathroom, kitchen, and dryer vent system is different. The vent system’s length and shape can vary significantly from house to house. The distance from the exhaust on the outside of the home to the bathroom exhaust fan can be over 20 feet in length in some cases, including multiple bends and angles. Others are simpler by far. Materials can also differ; either solid aluminum or flexible accordion-like plastic can be made of duct tubes. A family of birds can and do damage easily, and breakthrough plastic and foil type exhaust vent tubes, allowing them to access your attic or walls and significantly complicating matters.
What do you do after you get to the bird
To humanely and safely remove both the nest and the baby birds inside, Affordable Wildlife Removal employs hands-on techniques. Any and all birds that are removed are placed inside a protective container with some of the nesting material that we have gathered from the vent once the babies have been recovered. Our bird control technicians then secure the container to the outside of the closest opening of your home. This enables the starling parents to easily find their babies and continue to feed them until they are ready to fly alone. Affordable Wildlife Removal technicians always finish the process by placing a vent cover with a heavy gauge screening to avoid future re-entry, which keeps birds out and enables the vent to function as it should.
