Portland Oregon Bird Control & Turkey Removal

Bird control with spikes

Are you experiencing the tic tic tic of a Woodpecker? Or perhaps the loud squabbling of a family of starlings? ABL Wildlife can help! We provide humane, ethical, and effective bird eviction and deterrent systems. Our bird control services can occur as on the spot bird removal- when a bird has made it's way into a building and needs captured immediately. However, more often, our bird control services occur as eviction systems and the erection of deterrent systems.

Wild Turkey

Common Portland Bird Removal issues are:

  • Rock Dove Removal
  • Starling Removal
  • Starling nest clean out and sanitation
  • Pigeon removal
  • Pigeon damage remediation/sanitation
  • Woodpecker deterrent
  • Turkey removal
  • Raven and Crow deterrent and damage management

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.

Common bird damage includes but is not limited to:

  • Attic nesting
  • Feces deposits
  • Broken attic screens
  • Scratched vehicles
  • Exterior Nesting
  • Garden Destruction
  • Siding damage due to flickers and woodpeckers

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

Pigeon control is 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.

Woodpeckers and flickers can also be quite complex to deal with. Woodpeckers are protected and cannot be evicted from structures in the same fashion European starlings can be. ABL Wildlife has unique woodpecker control solutions that we can apply on a case by case basis; don't hesitate to give us a call!
