I have been told that birds will leave my attic on their own after a few weeks weeks. Is that true?
It is not uncommon for nests to be reused by the same family or a different family or species in the future. It takes trained technicians to identify birds nests and remove then using humane, hands-on techniques.
We only see one bird going in and out of our attic so there are probably no babies, right?
Not necessarily. Babies can remain in the nest for a period while the mother locates and returns with food. Babies will leave the nest when they are ready to fly.
I’ve been told that you have to catch the birds and relocate then far away from your house otherwise they will get back in. Is that true?
No. Following our humane removal procedure, we install professional bird proofing in all possible entry points. The birds will not be able to get back in – we guarantee it! In fact, if a bird does manage to get back into your home, we will return and complete a second remediation for free.
How do I know if I have birds in my home or building?
Birds are usually very noisy and are not very discrete. Babies will be very vocal when calling for food from their mother. And you will be able to see the mother birds coming and going with food and may even be able to see the open mouths of the babies. Bird droppings are also easy to spot on concentrations around nests and entry points.
