Our bird inspection and control process

We utilize a combination of trapping, removal, and exclusion techniques that will effectively and efficiently ensure that the birds will not return to cause more damage. Our experienced specialists will always identify the best solution for your individual needs. They are trained to identify protected species and will remove pest birds both safely and humanely. Our process includes:

  • Consultation - We will consult with you about what bird issues you are having. Your knowledge of where the trouble spots are will help us determine where we need to concentrate our efforts.
  • Inspection - After discussing the situation with you, your specialist will conduct a thorough inspection of your property. Our specialists look for nests, the birds themselves, and their access points.
  • Removal - An Ehrlich specialist will implement a deterrent method and remove the birds and nests. Our goal is to make sure your property looks clean and free of the debris and mess that birds leave behind.
  • Prevention - Once we remove the birds and determine why they are using your property for their nests, we’ll work with you to find a prevention method that will stop them from returning.

Tips for getting rid of pest birds

Although you cannot stop birds from visiting your property, there are easy steps you can take to reduce the conditions that birds may find attractive on your property.

Remove food sources

  • Do not use bird feeders
  • Keep trash areas away from structures and ensure those areas are clean and well-managed
  • Ensure trash cans have tight-fitting lids
  • Clean up any outdoor food or product spills quickly
  • Post signage at your business to encourage people not to feed the birds
  • For restaurants, bus outdoor dining areas as quickly as possible after services


  • Regularly mow and maintain lawns
  • Keep shrubs and trees trimmed and open to prevent nesting
  • Keep areas under shrubs free of vegetation and debris to eliminate potential nesting areas
  • Install a fence, barrier, or perimeter fence around bodies of water where possible to discourage geese

Remove access points

  • Birds can use ledges, window sills, cracks in wood, eaves and holes in the roof to build their nests. By adding deterrents, sealing up holes, and making those places less attractive to birds, you can stop them from using them as nesting places.
