Most commonly, this means that we install barriers that prevent them access to your building or property, or anti-roosting devices that prevent them from landing, nesting, or roosting on your home, store, building, or anywhere. We use netting, needle strips, shock track, and more. We do offer trapping in some cases, and removal of birds from warehouses, grocery stores, or other commerical or industrial buildings by netting or sometimes pellet shooting. We have a wide variety of tools and methods for solving every manner of bird problem. Call us at 574-707-8751 to discuss your bird problem today.



Stop Birds From Accessing Your Space

We stop birds from entering almost any space by installing netting. It is strong and durable, but thin and black so that it is not visually distracting. We can prevent birds from flying or roosting under awnings, roofs, or any other architectural area.



Stop Birds From Landing Or Roosting

We install needle strips or shock track on ledges, beams, the tops of signs, and anywhere birds are roosting and causing unsightly and unhealthy droppings. We can reach any area with our ladders and boom lifts.



We Clean Droppings and Nesting Material

Birds can make a mess with their droppings - on your building, roof, or the ground, or any other area. Sometimes bird guano and nesting material accumulate. We professionally clean and decontaminate the area.

How to use one-way exclusion funnels to remove birds without trapping them

Birds are a common part of any home. They live in the trees, may walk across your lawn, and are sure to fly around. They are as common in any neighborhood as people cutting grass, dogs barking, and kids playing ball. 

While you may not have any issue with them swooping around your home that does not mean that you want them inside your home. Sadly, there are many instances where birds will figure out how to get into your house, setting up residence in your walls or in your attic.

This is simply something you cannot afford to have happen. Not only are birds' very messy animals, but they carry a lot of diseases and parasites and, if they are in your home for any extended period of time, they put your home at serious risk. The diseases can harm your family, including your pets, and this can make for a very dangerous situation to say the least. While you want them out of your home, hiring a professional to do the job may not be a feasible option. You may not be able to afford the cost involved, and it may seem like there are simpler ways to resolve the issue. Poisons are a permanent option, but do you really want a lot of dead birds around your home? The answer is most likely no. There has to be a better way to get them out and keep them out. 

The best solution is the one-way exclusion funnel. This is a great way to for you to get these birds out of your home and keep them out, without having to do a whole lot of work to make it work. Here is what to do.

First, go to a local home repair or animal store and you should be able to find a one-way funnel. You may have to look online, but you can get one delivered within a couple of days. After you have received the funnel, the next thing to do is to locate all the areas where the birds are gaining access into your home. Look for loose boards, cracks, crevices, or other gaps where the birds can get in. You may find that they have pecked their way through a spot and this is allowing them to get into your home. 

Once you have found the location, the next thing to do is to close all the entryways that are available to them but one. As a note, if you find an entryway do not assume that this is the only one. Do a thorough search to make sure that all of them are found. Even if one may not seem like that big of a possibility, treat it as an option for the birds to get in.

In all but one of the entryways, you will need to seal them. Make sure that the one that you leave open is the one that they are most likely using most of the time. Nail town any loose boards tightly, and place caulk around the gaps to seal it tightly. You should make sure that you add steel wool inside the caulk to make it even more difficult for the birds to peck back away at the seal trying to get back in. Do this in every location but the one.

Once you have sealed the other locations, now it is time to put your one-way funnel up. What you do is place the larger end securely against the side of your home. Make sure that it is as tight against the house as you can get it.

The way that the funnel works is quite simple. When the birds go down the funnel the end is made so that they can get out. Once they are outside the house, the door is made so that they cannot get back in. This is why it is considered one-way. They can get out of the house through it, but not get back in. It is the ideal contraption. 

The issue you may have is getting them out of the house as quickly as possible. Eventually they will all fly out of there and be gone, but you would probably like that to happen a whole lot quicker. This means that you need to do all you can to try to scare them away. There are two things that will do the job for you and that is noise and light. Before applying any means, first consider that if you open the panel that allows you access into the attic you may also allow the birds to get into the main part of your home through that same access. You need to be careful and move with deliberate thoughts. 

If you can put some large lights or speakers into the attic without creating much of a disturbance then try this. Turn them on and let the devices do the rest. They will help to scare away the birds and then you can spring into action. 

Once you have checked to make sure that all of them are out of your home, next you want to go outside and fix that last entryway. Remove the funnel and secure the siding or roof area. Remember the steel wool to keep them out. If you implement this plan you should have great success in getting rid of them for good.
