BIRD REMOVAL
Minnesota has many species of birds, and only a few will become a nuisance.

US Fish and Wildlife ServiceNote from the US Fish & Wildlife Service: A Migratory Bird Depredation Permit authorizes certain management and control activities necessary to provide for human health and safety, protect personal property, or allow resolution of other injury to people or property. No permit is required merely to scare or herd depredating migratory birds other than endangered or threatened species and bald or golden eagles. A depredation permit is intended to provide short-term relief from migratory bird depredation until long-term measures can be implemented to reduce or eliminate the depredation problem through nonlethal control techniques. You must be at least 18 years of age to apply. Your application must include a recommendation from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Wildlife Services, for addressing your depredation problem.

Starlings
These birds usually create a nuisance by either nesting or roasting.
They will nest in dryer vents, roof vents, above lights. Starlings and sparrows are not protected in Minnesota. Starlings can be evicted out of these areas and exclusion can be installed to prevent future nesting and roosting problems.

Pigeons
Pigeons create some of the same problems, they have nesting sites, roosting sites and loafing sites. All of these areas can create a hazard with bird droppings and other bird parasites. Pigeon droppings have been known to carry many diseases and extreme caution should used when cleaning. NWC usually removes the problem birds through a trapping program. Then we will install some extrusions to prevent future infestations. Pigeons are also unprotected in Minnesota.
Pigeon Maple Grove
Chimney Swifts
Some people will confuse the sounds that swifts make with that of bats. If a colony of Swifts move into your chimney you will hear the chirping of the babies when the mother bird comes and goes. Chimney swifts are federally protected; it is against the law to destroy the birds, nests or eggs without a Federal depredation permit. The best thing to do is to wait till the babies are able to fly and NWC will install a chimney cap to prevent next years nests.

Swallows
Swallows usually create a problem when they create their mud nests on your home. If you have had a swallow nesting problem in the past it will most likely return. Because swallows are also federally protected it is unlawful to destroy the birds, nests or eggs without a Depredation Permit. To prevent future nesting NWC can install exclusion netting and other preventative measures to deter future nesting
Swallow St Cloud
Canada Geese
Residential geese are becoming an alarming pest in Minnesota. With each goose producing up to 3 pounds of poop a day, they can destroy a recreational area in a few days. We use two control techniques with Canada Geese, non-lethal and lethal. With a Non-lethal program we will use a variety of deterrents; this will include the use of noise deterrents, visual deterrents, chemical deterrents and physical barriers. Our other program is a population control. This can include eggs oiling and goose round ups. Any lethal control needs a federal depredation permit.
