Starlings Control

5 Star Service and Hundreds of Happy Customers in:
Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire & North London

Due to their large flock size Starlings have become an invasive pest bird in urban areas, especially on new housing estates where they use gaps in the fascia and soffits of homes to nest and access the loft.

This is when they become a problem, their noise, droppings and nest building causes sleepless nights and early mornings from the bird’s activities.

Although the removal of Starlings can be challenging Area Pest Control have successfully prevented starlings from returning to many nesting sites.

Starlings Are Protected

Starlings are protected under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 as they are in decline, which means they cannot be disturbed while nesting without applying for a special licence through Natural England, Area Pest Control will apply for the licence and carry out any works in strict accordance with the license.

How to stop starlings

Starling’s are able to squeeze into smaller gaps then you may think. A survey of your home will be carried out to identify potential entry points, it is key to close up any gaps and opens that the birds are currently using and any possible future entry points, this can include damaged tiles, broken vents and missing cement around the ridge tiles.

Facts about Starlings

Whilst they are noisy, if you take the time to really look at the Starling, they have the most amazing colours, Purple to Green iridescent with a yellow beak.

I contacted Area Pest Control about a problem I was having with mice. They came out to my property and placed traps and bait throughout. What impressed me most was the effort made to search for all possible entry points, not just the obvious route the mice gained via the kitchen.
