Bird Control from Home, Attic, Vents
You may find birds in the attic of your McLean home. The sooner you remove them from your attic, the less damage they will cause. Droppings are caustic and will attract insects which will attract other unwanted wildlife. If you hear noises in the attic, call us for a free inspection.

We can also clean and replace any insulation that may have been contaminated as they roosted in your attic.
Another common problem is birds in the vents. If you see nesting materials in any of the vents of your home, then it is a good possibility that you have critters nesting there. These vents are necessary for your home and having nesting in them can cause you problems, especially in dryer vents which is a huge fire hazard. Call us to professionally seal the vent so that they can’t return.

These flying creatures spread dangerous diseases. Breathing in air that has been contaminated by droppings can leave you with a serious infection. Exposure to contaminated air from an infestation of birds can cause someone becoming seriously ill. A professional removal and cleaning ensures that you are safe from the disease that they spread.
Woodpecker Removal and Control
Woodpeckers are very recognizable and are known for the loud, pecking noise they make. They can be quite a nuisance to McLean homeowners, especially if they are pecking near your bedroom in the morning. They will live wherever they can nest and they will make noise no matter where they are. While these birds prefer the trees, they can also find their way into your attic or the siding on your home or near your chimney.
The pecking noise they make is used to establish their territory so it can be quite loud, especially when inside the siding or chimney. Do not attempt to remove them on your own, as it is illegal. These are protected birds and they must be removed with care.

How do you keep birds away from buildings?
The best way to get rid of nuisance birds is to stop them from ever landing. Create barriers and deterrents which are unpleasant to them. Solutions range from reflective lures to strips and tracks.
