Birds: Vital to the Ecosystem But Damaging to Homes

 In Pest Control

If you have nuisance birds that are trying to build nests in your eaves, gables, or soffit and fascia, it can be very tempting to want to do whatever is necessary to get rid of them because of the damage that they are doing to your home. In addition, if you walk out your door only to find bird droppings all over your porch, outdoor furniture, or your vehicle, that temptation can rise exponentially. In such instances, birds can seem no less of a pest than ants, cockroaches, silverfish, and the like. However, be advised that the use of pesticides for bird control is expressly prohibited by law in Toronto and throughout Canada, as is the inhumane killing of birds. And, although they are a pest to you and your home, birds are also essential to the harmony of the ecosystem, so eradicating them altogether is not really a good solution at all.


However, it is understandable that you do not want the damage, disease, or smell that nesting birds can bring. One of the best ways to prevent any sort of pest problem, including one that involves birds, is by using a service that offers structural modification.
