Bird Removal and Control Richmond, Virginia
No matter the species, if nuisance birds are bothering your property in Richmond, Virginia Wildlife Pros has the knowledge and resources to safely stop them in their tracks and prevent them from becoming a problem in the future. Birds have an advantage in that they can access high points like roofs, awnings, powerlines, and more. This advantage allows them to be more of a nuisance in residential and commercial settings, primarily because they are harder to get to.

Not only are nuisance birds like pigeons and starlings messy, loud, and destructive, but they are also carriers of several nasty parasites and diseases. If you are dealing with a nuisance bird problem, time is of the essence. From woodpecker removal, starling removal, and pigeon removal to critter control for blackbirds, grackles, geese, and more, our highly trained Richmond VA bird trappers are your best option for safe and humane bird removal and control.

Contact us at 804-292-0156 to schedule an on-site inspection for bird proofing, bird control, and bird removal services in Richmond, Virginia. We serve residential and commercial properties throughout the central parts of the city and its outer counties, including Glen Allen, Henrico, Midlothian, Mechanicsville, and Charlottesville.

Nuisance Bird Damages and Threats

Birds are polluted, plus they are capable of making an obscene mess and spreading a whole lot of disease. But many people tend to overlook just how destructive they actually are, that is, until they are faced with bird damages. Birds are quite generous and unrelenting with their droppings, which deface and devalue homes, buildings, outdoor furniture, statutes, monuments, business signs, awnings, and even gardens and flowerbeds. They also inconveniently nest in these same kinds of places. Bird nests will clog and obstruct roofing structures, vents, pipes, gutter systems, electrical signage, powerlines, and more, causing power failure, fires, rot, erosion, and all sorts of other costly damages.

Furthermore, birds and their droppings are known to host and transmit several infectious diseases, such as Salmonella, E. coli, chlamydiosis, ornithosis, encephalitis, Newcastle disease, cryptococcosis, toxoplasmosis and similar internal parasites, and even ectoparasites like fleas, lice, mites, ticks, bed bugs, and other biting insects. Carpet beetles and clothes moths can also be spread by birds. Pigeons carry and transmit Northern Fowl mites, which can be devastating to chicken coops.

Birds can also pose the risk of Histoplasmosis, which is an upper respiratory disease caused by inhaling airborne fungal spores that grow on bird manure. This is common in cases of birds in the attic that have gone untreated for a long period of time. Children, elderly, and immunosuppressed individuals are more at risk of contracting Histoplasmosis. If you notice heightened bird activity on or around your property, it is important to get ahead of a potential nuisance bird problem with an integrated bird control plan at Virginia Wildlife Pros.

Birds in Vents

Birds in stove vents, birds in roof vents, birds in bathroom vents, oh my! Here at Virginia Wildlife Pros, we are very experienced with managing birds in vents, no matter which type of vent it might be. Like us, birds want somewhere warm and private to build their nests, and vents are the perfect place to meet these needs. Although roof vents (mushroom vents) and stove vents are also common areas to find bird nests, birds particularly seek out dryer vents because they are warmer and easier to access. But birds tend to get stuck and die inside dryer vents, which causes a nasty, lingering odor throughout the living quarters of the property.

Because bird nests are made from very dry, highly flammable material, birds in your vents are a serious fire hazard that should be addressed as soon as possible. When a vent blows hot air, it could cause a spark to ignite at any moment, which could send a fire through the entire HVAC system. Aside from the risk of fire, a bird in the vent can cause a great deal of damage to the vent itself and the surrounding structures, including roof shingles, electrical wiring, ductwork, insulation, and more. If you have a bird or bird nest in a vent in Richmond, Virginia, contact Virginia Wildlife Pros for licensed and insured bird control and nest removal services.

Frequently Asked Questions About Birds
Do You Remove Chimney Swifts?
Chimney Swifts (Chaetura pelagica) are known to occupy chimneys, flues, smokestacks, and belltowers. But they are a Federally protected species of bird, so it is critical that you never attempt to harm or remove Chimney Swifts. If a protected bird species, like the Chimney Swift, is living on your property, Virginia Wildlife Pros maintains protocol by waiting until the young leave the nest before moving forward with nest removal and bird proofing.
How Can I Keep Birds Out of My Chimney and Vents?
There are several types of barriers we can install over your chimney and vents, including roof vents, stove vents, and dryer vents. These installations include innovative devices like chimney caps, vent guards, vent caps, and vent barriers. We also retain exclusion devices that will allow birds to leave, but not allow them to return.
A Bird Flew Inside My House. What Do I Do?
If a lone bird has accidently flown into your house, it is important that you do not panic. Instead, very calmy begin the steps to coax the bird out of your house. Start by opening up all the doors and windows in the bird’s vicinity. Then, using something non-threatening, like the soft end of a broom, gently tap the wall or surface near the bird to safely encourage them to take flight again.

With the windows and doors open, the bird is very likely to take flight and exit through one. If the bird is refusing to budge or unable to locate the exits you have provided for them, you can contact Virginia Wildlife Pros and we will walk you through some other methods. You can try to box the bird in a shoe box, slide a thin piece of cardboard under it, then release the bird outside. If the bird in injured, contact a local bird rehabilitator for help.
