Birds may make nice additions to some landscapes, but when it comes to your property, these feathery fiends are a no-go. Not only can birds create extra noise, but they are also very unsanitary and can be a nuisance to anyone who walks by.
Different birds require different control methods, so knowing which birds are frequenting your facility is extremely important. Common pest birds include:
- Pigeons and Sparrows – These peckish pests can be found almost anywhere and are not picky eaters.
- Starlings – If you have livestock feed on your property, keep an eye out for starlings. Their droppings can contaminate entire batches of food.
Geese – Geese will leave a mess on your property and can become territorial and aggressive, putting surrounding people in danger of an attack.
“Birds of a feather flock together.” While this may seem like a cliché, it rings true. Birds gather to socialize and communicate once they decide on a place to settle down. Once they find an area with plenty of food and shelter, birds can be difficult to get rid of because of the strong attachment they form to your property.

Luckily, there are steps you can take to prevent birds from socializing and nesting around your facility. To learn how you can stop birds from turning your property into their new home, download this two-page guide and brush up on tips to protect your own nest.
