What Are the Signs of a Bird Infestation?

Signs of a bird infestation include frequent sightings of birds in and around the property, particularly congregating in large numbers. Nests in or around buildings, trees, or utility poles is also an indicator. Look out for damage to structures such as pecking or nesting activity, accumulation of droppings, or debris like feathers and nesting materials.

What Attracts Birds to Your Home or Business?

Many factors can attract birds to your home or business, such as abundant food sources from gardens – like trees & plants, bird feeders, and water features like birdbaths or ponds. Birds also seek out environments for potential nesting sites, such as eaves and roof spaces. Implementing preventative measures such as securing garbage bins, minimizing food spillage, and sealing off potential nesting sites can help.

Bug Out Reviews

Have used this pest control service for several years. Very rarely have an insect problem, but when I do, Bug Out comes immediately and addresses the issue! They have helped with ground wasps, pantry moths, sink flies, pantry moths, field mice, and roaches as needed over several years. As my regular ongoing service, they are also great. Highly recommend.

Preventing Future Infestations from Birds

To prevent future bird infestations, regularly maintain outdoor areas by removing debris and trimming vegetation to reduce potential nesting sites. Implement bird-proofing measures such as installing deterrents like bird spikes or netting in areas prone to roosting or nesting. It’s also important to secure garbage bins, cover compost bins, and minimize food spillage to deter birds from foraging in your yard.


The most effective bird control uses expert, humane methods like netting, spikes, and electronic deterrents. Professional pest control ensures long-term prevention and regular maintenance, protecting your property efficiently and safely.

It’s important to firstly identify the species and assess the extent of the infestation. Contact a pest control expert to help safely implement a combination of deterrents and exclusion techniques to help protect your property.

Birds dislike strong odors such as those from certain spices like cayenne pepper, garlic, and vinegar, or can be deterred by the scent of predatory animals like foxes or wolves. 

It’s important to note that the effectiveness of these scents as bird deterrents can vary depending on the species and the situation. Contact your local Bug Out team today to help with effective long term bird control.

To identify a bird in your yard, observe its physical characteristics such as size, color, and markings. Pay attention to its behavior, including how it moves, feeds, and interacts with other birds. Note distinctive features like beak shape, wing pattern, and any vocalizations to narrow down your identification. Take a look at the most common bird species found in North Carolina here.
