When it comes to birds nesting on your HVAC system or laying eggs in your attic, you might think of DIY solutions to get rid of them. Unfortunately, DIY bird removal techniques are both ineffective and unsuccessful in most cases. Not to mention, there are a variety of risks associated with these methods.

Here we explore the top reasons why we recommend calling a Tampa bird removal expert like Alford Wildlife when trying to remove birds from your property.

Training and Experience

Bird removal experts know how to best capture and remove nuisance birds. They have been trained on the different removal methods and have the proper equipment to do so. They are knowledgeable on the common nuisance birds present in your area and know how to recognize a bird’s route. This helps them better understand how the birds are getting into your property.

Moreover, bird removal experts are accustomed to the local and federal protection laws so they can determine when it is illegal to remove a bird. For example, by federal law, it is illegal for homeowners to remove a Red-Cockaded Woodpecker in Florida. While there are many other birds protected, experts can consult with the different institutions to best help you deal with the problem.

Time and Cost

Without adequate expertise, it can be difficult to find the best way to address your bird problem. DIY bird removal not only requires time to do research but also requires money to buy the necessary tools. Even after trying different solutions, there is no guarantee they will work in the long run.

Call a local expert when you start experiencing bird problems on your property. They will save you the resources you spend when dealing with it yourself.

Safety Concerns

Some birds can bring pests such as ticks and fleas into your property. These can easily infect birds as they can dogs and cats. Moreover, bird excrement often carries bacteria and viruses transmitted once they dry up and turn into airborne dust. You can be infected by inhaling the contaminated air, eating contaminated food, or by coming in direct contact with their feces.

Among the diseases carried by birds, there is psittacosis, salmonellosis, histoplasmosis, and many more.
