Pest Bird Control - Greater Birmingham, Alabama

Birmingham bird control supervisor taking a break on a high perch

Bird control takes our staff to new heights -- literally!

Pest bird control is one of the most interesting specialties in wildlife management. It certainly has the best views, as the picture on the right shows. That's Dean, one of our supervisors, taking a break while at a big bird control job at an industrial plant.

Bird control's also very challenging work, however. Birds have a distinct advantage over us earth-bound folks, namely, that they can fly; so keeping birds out of places where they're not wanted requires thinking like a bird. The bird control team has to first figure out all the ways the birds are going to try to get back in, and then they have to prevent them from doing so.

So I guess you might say that you need to be a bit of a birdbrain to be a good bird control technician.

Reasons why Bird Control is Necessary

The reasons that most bird control work is contracted have to do with health and safety. A lot of people don't realize this, but there are more than 20 diseases that humans can catch from direct or indirect contact with birds, their feces, or their bodily fluids, and more than another 20 more that are associated with the parasites that live on or in birds.

Some examples of bird-borne diseases include:

And those are just a sampling. In addition, when birds and their feathers, nesting material, and dried droppings get caught in the intakes of HVAC equipment, they can cause dust, allergens, and pathogens to be spread through the building.

In addition to being involved in disease transmission, birds can cause safety risks in a number of other ways. For example:

Finally, in addition to the health and safety problems associated with birds, bird can just be plain rude, pooping all over our cars, on our buildings, on the statues that we erect in memory of our heroes, and sometimes even on our heads and shoulders when we walk under overpasses, marquees, or lit sign-age where birds are roosting. There's nothing that'll make you realize why bird control is necessary quite like being pooped on by one.

Humane Bird Control in Alabama

Rid-A-Critter uses a variety of techniques to handle nuisance bird problems. Unlike the quick-and-dirty methods used by "bird exterminators," our methods are humane, non-toxic, non-lethal, environmentally friendly, and long-lasting. Some of these methods include:

In addition, once we're done, we carefully clean up after the birds to remove droppings, feathers, nesting materials and so forth, and optionally sanitize the area to remove the risk of bird-borne diseases.

Dry Under Decks Installation

We also offer an optional product known as Dry Under Decks either as an add-on or a stand-alone service. Dry Under Decks is a water-management and rain-carrying system that that is installed under decks, and allows you to use the space under your deck as a clean, dry, recreational, dining, or other outdoor living space.

The Dry Under Decks system is bird-proof and is installed under the joists of the existing deck. It's designed to catch and channel away the rainwater that falls through the gaps in the deck. This allows the area under the deck to be used for living purposes, rather than being wasted.

Dry Under Decks is a high-quality product that is resistant to birds and other small animals, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. please as your Rid-A-Critter representative for more details.
