As summer leaves us once again, cooler air will begin to move into the Lisbon area within the next few weeks of the month. As the air begins to cool, HVAC systems are given a rest while windows are opened. On brisk fall evenings, Lisbon residents may want to start a fire in their fireplace and enjoy the natural heat as it warms their homes. Before you fire up your fireplace, be sure to check your chimney for a chimney swift nest. If you hear a fast tapping from your chimney, or of course, find a nest, your Lisbon home is in need of chimney swift removal.
Chimney swift removal is necessary for not only the Lisbon area, but for the entire Maryland state as well. Chimney swifts can be found migrating through the state of Maryland in large numbers, with many of them remaining in the state year round to nest. However, with their long claws, nesting in trees is impossible. That is why chimney swift nests are found near vertical surfaces, like your Lisbon chimney. Because of their length and wingspan, the chimney swift is commonly mistaken for a bat. If chimney swift removal is necessary for your Lisbon home, never take matters into your own hands. Some people may think that they can remove the nest on their own, even if the babies haven’t yet hatched. However, once a human touches a nest, the mother will abandon the nest, ultimately killing the babies. Instead, call the professionals at Mid Atlantic Wildlife Control.
