Bird control tips make your property and your life much easier. Unfortunately, although you might enjoy birdwatching or like the morning birdsong, birds do not always behave nicely.

Many homeowners seek DIY bird control methods to keep the birds away. But what noises will successfully scare birds away?

Lots of Trees, Lots of Birds

Colorado has an abundance of trees. As of 2017, the state had 11.67 billion trees in its forests. So, it might not be surprising that Colorado has many birds, too. After all, birds find their natural habitat in trees.
In fact, over 500 species of birds live in Colorado. Unfortunately, the birds do not all stay in the forest. Instead, they often make their way to inhabited areas, such as your property. Therefore, you need to prepare them with some helpful bird control tips.

What Does Bird Damage Look Like?

Birds can intrude on your peaceful property. However, they can do much worse damage than that. Bird damage takes the form of clogged gutters, torn shingles, or broken siding. It could show up as damage on surfaces like concrete, metal, or paint from bird droppings. If you don’t control birds, they can bring diseases into your home.

Which Birds Do You Need to Control?

Not all birds damage your home or disrupt your peaceful property. However, some can cause significant destruction. Others are so loud that you can’t enjoy a quiet day at home. The following list of problem birds can help you weed out troublemakers.

  • Woodpeckers
  • Crows
  • Pigeons
  • Sparrows
  • Flickers

Of course, many other birds might cause you problems. Most birds do carry diseases, so at the least, you need to keep them away from your family. However, you can all stay safer with the right bird control tips.
