Pigeon and starling pest problems debunked!

Pigeons and starlings may be cute to look at while in flight.

However, these birds carry infectious diseases and are known for spreading germs.

In Yorkshire, there are thousands of pigeons that have made government, residential and commercial buildings their homes.

Pigeons and starlings love to build nests in high areas -which allow them to breed and procreate at alarming rates.

While they do not possess an attack-based threat like rats and mice, these pets need to be contained or infestation will occur.

At Avon Pest Control, we offer the best techniques and solutions to deal with pigeon or starling infestation problems.

Avon Pigeon and Starlings Control Services

In Yorkshire, pigeons are called rats with wings - due to the many infectious diseases they carry.

This includes 'Chiamdiosis', a virus similar to influenza, and 'Psittacosis', similar to pneumonia.

Believe it or not, pigeons can spread these diseases with their droppings and feathers - but especially by congregating in large numbers.

According to recent statistics, the pigeon problem in the UK is an incredible mess to say the least.

In fact, it costs up to £15 million to clean up pigeon droppings and deposits across the nation.

With this in mind, Avon Pest Control offers the following techniques to rid any residential, business or even city government property of pigeons and starlings:

•    Large nets that trap pigeons - and their young - for immediate and safe removal. These birds are handed over to local animal control shelters.

•    Blocking off entrance - exit routes that pigeons love to fly in and out of.

•    Using pesticides - which may be harsh - but necessary in removing entire pigeon and starling colonies. However, we do our best to salvage and protect all birds and their young during the process.

•    Immediate removal of pigeons from attics, home shingles, rafters, basements, and crawlspaces. We temporarily open up exit routes so they can fly away.

•    In the case of mass pigeon infestation - which can attract other dangerous birds of prey - we utilize pesticides and bait traps to remove these birds from your home or office buildings.

The Avon Pest Control Experience

Avon Pest Control is committed to protecting the environment.

However, there are times when even the most beautiful birds can cause havoc and damages in homes and businesses.

We carefully try to eliminate birds in a safe and friendly manner.

However, there are times when we have to take more aggressive actions - especially when it comes to birds with dangerous diseases and germs.

We have listed a few ways to combat ant infestation in the your homes and yards - but if these methods fail - we are just a phone call or e-mail away.

According to DIY experts, here are a few ways to try and prevent an ant infestation in your home and or business:

•    Ant sprays - these commercial sprays may or may not work on all ant breeds. Still, you can try spraying your outdoor and indoor areas to thwart off ants from entering.

•    Ant poison - these are not guaranteed to stop ants from breeding or entering your properties. There are many brands to choose from so conduct adequate research before purchasing them.

•    Boric acid - this is a traditional method used to tackle bug, ant and insect infestation.
Try spreading Boric acid on areas where ants may enter your home or business; garage, basement, attic, and outside the front door or side doors.

•    Use containers - ants love to feed on crumbs and food particles, which they take back to their Queen and young.  We recommend using containers so even the smallest ant cannot penetrate and feed on your food and snacks.

•    Dispose of trash quickly - ants also love to feed on garbage and rubbish.
We recommend disposing of your trash as quickly as possible.
In fact, keep trash cans and bins as far away from your home entrances as possible.
