Knowing The Right Solution To Your Bird Problem Is KEY To Resolving A Bird Issue

Typical Locations For Bird Issues To Develop

Airports & Hangars


It is no secret that birds around airports cause a big hazard.  The problem is with all the canopies at entryways, terminals, and hangars,  it creates the perfect environment for nesting birds.



Billboards work for advertising because they stick out and are high.  This feature works best for birds also because it gives them a safe place to survey the area for predators and food sources.



Bridges form excellent bird nesting and roosting locations.  Safe places for birds to congregate and their dropping accumulations can make bridge inspections unsafe.



Canopies and warehouse lean to's create the best open bird cage.  Plenty of places to roost and nest and be away from predators.  

Convention Centers


Convention Centers attract birds because of the size of the building and the restaurants that surround them.  Great places to roost for birds surveying food sources as well as the canopies creating nesting opportunities

Ethanol & Fuel Plants


Ethanol plants have everything a bird needs to survive.  Food is plentiful, water is very close, heat is close with the distilling areas, and shelter exists above many food sources like the wet pad and grains receiving/ddg buildings.

Food Retailers


Birds inside grocery stores or places that serve food creates not only a nuisance, but a health risk due to the diseases birds can carry.  Up to 60 communicable diseases can be found in birds.  

High Rises


 Birds love high rising buildings. These structures provide great roosting places and shelter throughout the day.   

Historic Buildings


 The structural details of historic buildings often make them very attractable to birds of all species. The nooks, crannies, and ledges provide nesting and heavy roosting capabilities for birds. 

Hospitality--Hotels, Motels, & Inns


Big hotels have excellent places for birds to roost on their roof tops and signs.  The signs can create excellent nesting areas for sparrows.

Loading Docks


Loading docks generally have canopies that provide shelter and nesting opportunities for birds close to food sources.  

Marine & Boat Houses


Marine areas are very attractive to water birds like sea gulls. These birds prefer to have open roof tops and boat houses.  Droppings will cause thousands of dollars of damage to boats and can be costly to continue to clean up.

Medical Centers


 Medical facilities are created to prevent and heal disease. But these facilities often become home to birds carrying over 60 infectious diseases and more than 40 types of parasites 

Parking Garages


 Did you know bird droppings are acidic and can eat away at auto body paint? Parking structures are the perfect home for birds providing protection and a place to survey food sites. In addition to paint damage, droppings can create safety issues for customer. 

Religious Buildings


Birds like high roofs and areas to perch/roost.  Church buildings provide these areas especially bell towers.



Food and water are needed for birds and restaurants fit that bill perfectly.  Those that have outside patios will get bird problems quick.  

Rooftops & HVAC


Rooftops and HVAC units like on gas station canopies, office buildings, hotels, etc create a safe place for birds to roost & nest during the daytime. But a build up of bird droppings can clog the drains of the roof. When left unresolved, this can lead to standing water and cause the roof to collapse from the weight.  



Bird Droppings are not only hazardous, but they are also very acidic.  Over time these droppings can eat away at the sign material and paint causing the image of the company to go down.  Customers percieve the company to be what they first see before the contact.

Solar Panels


Solar Panels provide excellent locations for birds to nest and roost.  They are able to fit under the panels and gain not only security from predator birds but also warmth the panels will deliver from the energy collected from the sun. 

Sport Stadiums


Stadiums provide lots of opportunity for birds to find food and shelter.  The canopies over top of the seating areas are excellent places for birds to nest and roost in the daytime, especially during game time.

Retail Shopping Center & Strip Malls


 Retail stores rely on their image. But signs covered with bird droppings or nesting gives the wrong impression to potential customers. Bird droppings are also slippery and create safety risks for your customers. 



Pigeons are very likely to become issues at a university or college.  They know there is many food and nesting locations due to the buildings and restaurants on campuses and will become problems.



Warehouses provide excellent roosting and nesting opportunities for birds like sparrows, starlings, and pigeons.  There droppings will cover products that are being stored and present a poorly taken care of product to the end user.

Water Retention Ponds


Birds like waterfowl will congregate in water retention ponds.  These ponds get all kind of run off water from parking lots, rooftops, and ground surface water which puts the chemicals in the water making it unsafe for migratory birds.
