Some homeowners out there think a simple solution is to smoke the birds out. Unfortunately, this is never as effective as one thinks. It could harm the birds and, if there are babies present, they won’t be able to fly out. In this case, you’re left with an even big problem and you now how have to figure out how to remove the now deceased creatures from your fireplace.
Let us use our tools, equipment, and expertise to get these critters out as safely and as efficiently as possible. When we’re on the job, you don’t have to worry about a thing!
Are The Birds Protected By Law?
Another big reason you’ll want to call us in before taking action yourself is because some birds, like chimney swifts, are protected by law and cannot be removed by us or anyone else. If the critters are under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, then knowingly destroying them, their nests, or any potential young will land you in some trouble, and you could face charges, fines, and penalties.
These laws are set in place to help endangered animals, so the best (and most humane) option is to simply leave them alone until they migrate back to a warmer climate come wintertime. It may seem like an inconvenience now, but it will save you trouble down the line and, once they’re gone, you can have a chimney cap installed, so they won’t be able to come back and cause problems the next year.
Can Bat Removal & Prevention Help Keep The Birds Out For Good?
Yes, we can! We know all about where birds typically enter and where they best like to build nests and settle in, so we can easily locate and block off any potentially points of entry. This goes for places other than your chimney, too! Consider your attics, crawl spaces, and any other similar areas protected because our team won’t rest until you’re completely taken care of.
Along with this, we offer a preventative maintenance program that ensures your home or business stays pest-free for the long haul. We will come back a couple times throughout the year, so you know you’re good to go, and we’ll re-seal any points of entry that need touching up (free of charge). It’s the best way to gain that peace of mind you deserve.
