Our bird control services occur as on the spot bird removal, the setup of humane live capture devices, or the construction of an eviction system. Now, our bird control services even extend to turkey removal! Our number one goal is to make your home and property safe for you, your family, and your pets.

Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has given us the go ahead to implement our turkey control methods on turkey populations. Are you experiencing turkey problems? Are they depositing feces in your yard, or on your vehicles? ABL Wildlife can help! We have turkey removal solutions!

In years past turkey removal used to be against regulations, therefore we couldn't provide any kind of assistance for homeowners experiencing turkey related problems. Unfortunately, this provision does not apply to folks in the Washington state. However, this is wonderful news for residents of Oregon! Give us a call for more information about our turkey removal solutions.

Wild Turkey

Common Portland Bird Control issues include, but are not limited to:

  • Attic infestations
  • Turkey Control
  • Nesting
  • Property Damage i.e. nesting, flicker damage, wood pecker damage
  • Garden Destruction

But here are a few more specific indicators that you might need bird control or bird removal:

  1. 1" or larger holes in attic, soffit, or eve vents (The screens below the roof, at the top of the siding)
  2. Noises at daylight- rustling, chirping
  3. Feces coating siding or roof decks
  4. Turkey scratch marks on vehicles or boats

Pigeons

Pigeons are also a large part of our bird control services, pigeons' nest in large colonies and can cause quite the mess when left unattended. They often gain access to air conditioning systems on roof decks and their feces in abundance can cause slipping hazards as well. Many people observe pigeons from afar without giving them much of a second glance, while some identify the disease-ridden creature they are.

Unfortunately, pigeons can spread a multitude of diseases to humans, including but not limited to:

  • E. Coli
  • St. Louis encephalitis
  • Histoplasmosis
  • Candidiasis
  • Salmonellosis

How can pigeons transmit diseases? They transmit disease through their droppings. Pigeon droppings that are laced with bacteria and/or viruses are often left on the street, windows, and vehicles to dry out. When the feces have dried into a fine powder, they become a particulate matter that can be easily inhaled by humans.

Starling Bird

Starlings

Another bird of note in our bird control handbook would be the european starling, while starlings are non-indigenous, they have had no trouble adapting. Commonly starlings will make their nests in attics, inside dryer vents, or sometimes they'll just pull of screens to whatever vent suites them best.

Along with being a nuisance to humans, out in nature they have also been menacing some of our native bird species such as some native hole-nesting birds, such as bluebirds and Red-headed Woodpeckers, competing with them for nesting sites. It is admirable how tough these birds are as they have trudged their way across the entire nation. However, their negative traits do outweigh the room for admiration.

Once a starling has invaded an attic space, they get right at working filling it with debris, dried vegetation, and trash. Not only are the mites and other parasites that reside in these nests alongside the starling an issue, but this nest is also quite flammable. No one wants a house fire, don't hesitate to call us for more information about our bird control programs.

Are you still unsure where to find entry points or species of animal causing damage? Don't worry about it, that's what bird removal services such as ours are here for! ABL Wildlife will identify, wildlife species, access points, damage, and potential future entry points upon initial inspection. ABL Wildlife is here for you as critter control you can trust, we have a solution for you, whether it be in one of our trapping programs, our eviction systems, or our ability to seal your home from wildlife.
