Our Bird Pest Control Specialists Are Ready to Serve You

If you suspect you have a bird infestation, it’s important you speak with bird pest control specialists immediately. When birds create nests and lay their eggs on your property, it can be very difficult to enjoy your space. Birds can get nasty and overprotective if you or your guests get too close to their nests. Additionally, they drop feces all over your property and spread dangerous parasites and disease to you and your pets.

Common Birds In Canada

House Sparrows

Size: 14 to 18 cm long, wingspan of 19 to 25 cm.

Colour: Brown to grey colour variations in their feathers.

Behaviour: House sparrows only eat insects when their babies are young. During the rest of their lifespan, they enjoy a diet that includes grain crops, grain and other seeds. They often begin breeding in March and may continue until August. A pair raise up to four broods every year, having as many as six eggs at a time.

Pigeons

Size: 29 to 37 cm long, wingspan of 62 to 72 cm.

Colour: Grey-blue feathers with iridescent throat plumage. Yellow, greenish and reddish-purple markings along their wings and neck, usually with a dark tipped tail.

Behaviour: Pigeons’ heads often move rhythmically and sway forward and backwards as they walk or stand. They are monogamous birds who mate for life. Their only defence mechanism against predators is flying, and despite having many predators, their population isn’t in any danger.

Starlings

Size: 19 to 23 cm long, wingspan of 31 to 44 cm.

Colour: Black, glossy feathers with a metallic/iridescent sheen.

Behaviour: Starlings form communal roosts which may end up being home to 10,000 more birds. During their migration, the flock populations can grow into hundreds of thousands in Southern Ontario and some other provinces. They nest in tall trees or buildings and enjoy feeding on wild or cultivated fruits like berries or cherries.

Frequently Asked Questions

Pigeons are active year-round whereas the main nesting season for house sparrows is April to August. During summer, starlings migrate north, as far as the territories before returning south in large numbers during winter.

Many birds carry lots of diseases and parasites, from mites or fleas, to potentially fatal diseases such as histoplasmosis, chlamydiosis, salmonellosis, toxoplasmosis, and more. These parasites or diseases can harm humans, pets and livestock.

Many species of birds can destroy your garden by feasting on your fruit, vegetables, or freshly planted seeds. Their droppings and nests can make a mess of your home or property.

When removing birds from your property, it’s important you hire a professional like Terminix Canada to remove them, as you must abide by regulatory restrictions.

Many species of bird reside near humans because our environment provides them protection from predators. Living near humans also provides them with more opportunities to scavenge food from gardens, flowers, bird feeders and littered food found in parking lots or patios.

Eliminate any open sources of food you can spot, including bird feeders. Cover outdoor garbage containers tightly and fix any broken or deficient drainage systems. Repair and seal any outdoor areas of your property where birds may make nests and cover your vents and openings with wire mesh.
