While most people like to watch birds in flight, few like to have them nesting too close. By their very nature, birds are territorial; some will defend their entire home range, others only their food supply, their young, or a place to mate. Birds found in Brampton, especially around nesting time, can become even more territorial and be extremely aggressive.
Birds can also pose a serious health risk. Bird feces can contaminate human food or water sources and release airborne spores that can be inhaled. Bird feces can also cause serious injury if it comes into contact with a cut or open sore. On top of that, birds carry disease-causing parasites, ticks, fleas, and mites.
The experts at City & Country Pest Control know that aside from birds being territorial and passing on diseases, their droppings can also damage and corrode building materials. Bird droppings and nesting material can block machinery, causing it to operate inefficiently and leading to expensive repairs. Bird droppings are also very acidic and can eat away at many substances. In 2008, an accumulation of bird droppings even caused the roof of a gas station and convenience store to collapse.1
There are other reasons why you should leave pest bird removal in Brampton to the trained staff at City & Country Pest Control. Most species of birds in Canada are protected under the Migratory Birds Convention Act, meaning that causing harm or injury to certain migratory birds can result in serious fines and/or imprisonment. For example, it is illegal to harm or injure a goose and damage or move its eggs and nest without a federal permit.2
As Brampton and the GTA’s leading bird control specialists, we at City & Country Pest Control understand how important it is to take a humane approach to pest bird prevention.
Many structures in Brampton have large, open, and semi-enclosed spaces that invite pest bird roosting, perching, and nesting. Bird netting is the perfect solution for zero tolerance zones, blocking access to roosting sites for structures of all shapes and sizes.
When it comes to keeping pest birds—pigeons, starlings, sparrows, and even bats—away from residential, commercial, or industrial properties in Brampton, City and Country Pest Control’s bird netting is the first place to turn.
Extremely discreet, mesh bird netting is a virtually invisible, non-toxic, non-corrosive, and permanent solution for keeping pest birds in Brampton out of a specific area and away from people, crops, products, and other valuable property.
Bird netting can keep birds out of residential, municipal, commercial, industrial, and retail settings, including factories, warehouses, restaurant patios, parking ramps, poultry houses, barns, silos, garages, patios, balconies, churches, ponds (keep away birds that prey on fish), and crops (fruit, vegetables, grains).
Whatever the structure or area, City & Country Pest Control’s bird netting can help proactively guard against the health hazards and general nuisance that roosting and nesting birds and even bats in Brampton can create.
As Brampton’s number one pest bird control company, City & Country Pest Control will arrive at your home or business, conduct a thorough inspection, and provide you with a free estimate detailing which type and weight of bird nesting is best suited for each application.
For residential properties, City & Country normally uses lighter black netting that is easy to install, while commercial installations need heavier bird netting solutions. But regardless of the size of the job, City & Country Pest Control has the necessary bird netting needed to block off both large and small areas and prevent pest birds from roosting and nesting.
