Signs That There Are Birds Living In Your Attic
While birds are harmless, peaceful animals when they are in the wild, they can quickly become a problem when they decide to take up residence in the attics of houses. Attic-dwelling birds can create messes in homes with their nests, urine, and fecal matter, and they can also spread diseases and parasites to the people and pets living in the house. For this reason, if you spot any signs of birds living in your attic, you should contact a pest control professional as soon as possible so that they can safely remove the birds from your home and seal up any entry ways that these avians are using to gain access to your attic! In this article, we’ll go over a few different signs that you may have one or more birds living in your attic and talk about the best way to get rid of them!

Signs Of Birds Living In An Attic
One of the most common signs of birds living in your attic is the sounds they make. If you notice chirping or scratching sounds coming from your ceiling, birds could be the culprit. However, these noises could also be coming from a wide variety of other pests, including bats and rodents. The next way to determine if birds are living in your attic is to go upstairs into the space and look for nesting materials, feathers, and bird feces. The birds taking up residence in your attic may often leave and come back, so while there’s no guarantee you’ll actually see a bird, they will almost always leave behind signs that they are in fact nesting there. Be cautious and wear personal protective equipment if you decide to go up to your attic to check for signs of birds, as spores from their droppings and nesting materials can become airborne and spread diseases to you.
How To Deal With Birds In Your Attic
The safest and most ethical way to get birds out of your attic is to contact a pest control company in your area that offers bird removal services. A pest control professional will safely remove the birds from your attic without injuring or killing them, then identify the entry points they were using to gain access to your home. Once the entry points have been identified, they can be sealed up using screens and patches, helping prevent future bird infestations in your home!
