When to Consider Bird Removal Service

When people think of pests, they typically think of bugs or rodents first. However, birds can be more than just a nuisance, they can be a health problem or damage property when a flock of birds congregate.

For example, pigeons are creating a problem around county buildings in Odessa, Texas leaving behind excrement everywhere. And a few years ago in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton, Texas, residents in one neighborhood battled with egrets to stop gathering and not only making annoying noise, but also leaving behind feces all over the neighborhood sidewalks. This is when a professional bird removal service can protect a home or business from these issues.

Hazards of a Bird Infestation

It’s one thing to have a flock of birds fly over and watch them migrate to an area, but it becomes a health and safety issue when numerous birds take up residence outside of a home or business. Birds are known to be carriers for more than 60 diseases that can create health issues in humans.

Their excrement not only contains ammonia and uric acid, but if left long enough it can corrode steel. This not only damages property, but a mess from their droppings can deter customers from a business.

Protecting Property from Birds

Birds are creatures of habit and can return to places that are familiar to them. This is why it is important to contact a professional bird removal service that can protect your property from a variety of birds that habitually return to the same locations.

After any nests are removed and the area is thoroughly cleaned, a pest control expert can install bird spikes, bird netting, bird wire, or bird jolts to prevent the birds from returning. The process is safe to the birds, plus it can save you from harmful health issues and costly damage to your home or business.

If you see a flock of birds roosting on your property, contact the highly trained technicians at Pest Management, Inc. to remediate bird nesting issues and to prevent any further infestations. Our bird removal services are backed with a one-year warranty, so if the birds should return we will take care of the issue at no extra charge.

Putting the Heat on Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are everywhere. They may not be in your home, but they are out there and could find their way to your home or office by stowing away in your furniture, clothing, pillows, bedding, and any object that has travelled, such as luggage. If you go somewhere and don’t know there are bed bugs, they can crawl and hide on you or your belongings to find their way back to your home. In recent news, bed bugs have been discovered in a university dorm, a high school, and at a shelter.

Getting rid of bed bugs isn’t the same as eliminating a couple of bugs in your home or office. If you spot a couple of bed bugs, there’s good chance there are more than just a few. Heat remediation is proven to be the most effective pest management method to rid a property of these pests.

Thermal Remediation

It’s a fact that bed bugs can’t take the heat. Bed bugs only have a threshold to 116 degrees Fahrenheit. This is why thermal remediation has been proven to be 97 percent effective in the control of bedbugs. If temperatures in a room are elevated higher than this threshold for at least a few hours, it can kill all stages of bed bugs. The treatment is also eco-friendly and doesn’t leave residual pesticides.

A professional pest control technician who is highly trained in the technique of thermal remediation should perform the process to safely kill bed bugs. This ensures the treatment will be effective and will not result in any injuries.

Protect with Prevention

Even the cleanest homes and businesses can have bed bugs. The best method to protect your property is to know how to spot a bed bug and take as many steps as possible to prevent them from coming to your home or office.

A bedbug is a small, dark red, and oval-shaped insect that looks similar to a tick. Bedbug eggs look like small grains of rice. They have an odor that is often described as spoiled raw beef or a sweet, musty odor. A bed bug bite is itchy and similar to a mosquito bite.

If you travel, keep your suitcase off of the bed and carpeting. Vacuum it before it enters your home and wash any clothing that travelled with you.

When you do spot a bed bug at your property, contact the expert team at Pest Management, Inc. to deploy our heat remediation fleet. Our highly trained team, including our bed bug dogs, leads the fight against bed bugs and can have your home or office treated in just a matter of hours.
