Whether you have a bird problem at home or at work, this certainly shouldn't be ignored. When pest birds decide to keep themselves at home, they can be difficult to get rid of. With birds congregating in large groups, they can be a major turnoff to customers and employees, and the messes they leave is certainly far from pleasant. Are birds bad for your roof? they are. Bird droppings are highly acidic, so they can gradually damage asphalt roofing materials and even ruin other roofing equipment as they decompose. To make matters worse, birds also like to build their nests out of branches, leaves, and other organic materials that also become acidic as they start to rot. Their droppings and nests also absorb water, which increases the stress on roofing material and make mold and algae more likely to appear on your roof. If left unchecked, this problem can eventually lead to leaks and shorten the life of the roof. Here's everything you need to know about how to get rid of birds from your roof once and for all.
Unlike raccoons, squirrels, and other critters that like to climb roofs, birds can fly. This makes it harder to keep them from gaining access to your roof. Still, there's a lot you can do to stop these feathered intruders from getting interested in your roof.
Here are 5 effective ways to keep birds off your roof:
1. Install roof spikes along the ledges and the peak of your roof. Despite their scary name, these spikes aren't actually sharp and just make it difficult for birds to land.
2. Install fake predators such as plastic owls, ravens and falcons. These decoys can even play predator sounds to keep other birds away.
3. Remove food sources that may attract birds to your home.
4. Adding bird wire or netting will keep birds from away on your roof.
5. Call in the professionals. When all else fails, get the pest control services involved.
Since many national birds are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, you are strongly advised not to disturb their nests, kill birds or destroy their eggs. It is also illegal to attempt to hatch wild bird eggs yourself. The law applies even if the nest is in an inconvenient location, such as on a roof or gutters. Fortunately, most young birds only stay in their nests for a few weeks before they can fly away on their own. When you're done, you can remove the nest and use bird spikes, bird wire, or bird nets to prevent future nesting.
