Birds can cause a lot of damage to a property if they decide to set up nests in your home. However, there are a few key signs that you have a bird infestation that you need to watch out for. As soon as you spot those telltale signals, reach out to a pest control company like Complete Pest Solution in Youngstown, who can get rid of the birds before real damage is caused.
Perhaps one of the most common areas of bird damage is your gutters. Birds like to build their nests in high places, and gutters or drains are the perfect shelters for their homes. Unfortunately, depending on the type of bird, these nests can sometimes be large and heavy, causing your pipes to sag or potentially damaging your home’s walls and siding.
If you have an attic, it’s possible that birds will settle here to scavenge for items. Most commonly taken from attics is insulation which removes the home’s warmth and can increase heating and energy costs long-term. Birds are reasonably noisy creatures, so if one has made a home in your attic, you’ll likely be able to hear noises and can request bird removal help.
Bird droppings are very acidic, meaning damage can be caused to roof tar and shingles, gradually wearing away the roofing and siding of your home. Bird droppings can also carry diseases, so it’s essential to watch out for and remove their waste to prevent your family or pets from getting sick.
Vent & Chimney Damage
Birds nest just about anywhere they can fit and make a sizable home, and your home’s vents and chimney spaces are one of the most common places to do so. If a chimney becomes blocked by nests, it can cause the chimney smoke and carbon monoxide to enter into the home instead of filtering up into the outside air.
Different birds have different ways to damage your home, though these areas for concern are perhaps the most popular and damaging to your property.

Bird Removal Services
When you think of pests, birds don’t tend to be the first animal that comes to mind. People love them for their docile nature. Yet there’s a reason they’re meant to live outside; they can cause similar damage as bats once they’ve infiltrated the building. That’s why Complete Pest Solutions provides bird removal in Ohio and Pennsylvania, in addition to our many other pest control services.
Our bird program includes up to four visits by an experienced technician, who sets up a one-way door. Each visit afterward is an assessment to ensure the birds have evacuated. On our final visit, we seal the entry points to prevent the birds from coming back.
Our bird control services are designed to be more than a temporary fix. We want our customers to benefit from our work for years.
The Dangers of Having Wild Birds Inside
Birds are not opposed to building their nests in chimneys and ventilation systems, which can spread diseases and block proper airflow. Carbon monoxide can get backed up in the home, which can be life-threatening to everyone inside it. Our bird control service isn’t just convenient; it can save your life.
Your gutter system can also be a preferred pick for birds’ nests, and if that happens, you could end up with a backup of standing water. The weight of that water sags and damages not just the entire system but also the part attached to your structure, your siding, and your foundation. Trapped, overflowing water then becomes a breeding ground for other pests, like mosquitoes and other insects. We can install specially designed gutter guard systems that keep birds, leaves, and debris out of your gutters.
