Is a Bird Infestation Harmful?

Is a Bird Infestation Harmful?

Residents of Caroline County have grown accustomed to seeing birds throughout the area. Whether they see a pigeon resting on a power line or a robin on a tree branch, seeing birds from day to day is never a surprise or reason for concern with Caroline County residents. However, when a bird infestation occurs within your Caroline County home, there becomes a need for concern.

One bird in your home may not seem like a problem, but a bird infestation could lead to serious problems for you and your family. A bird infestation can first lead to serious damage to your home. Bird droppings can damage personal items as well as destroy fabrics and hardwood surfaces within your home. The constant activity from the bird infestation can damage the insulation within your home along with your personal belongings. As the birds come and go from your Caroline County home, they can damage the siding and roof of your home, leaving you vulnerable to water damage. A bird infestation can also cause serious health problems as well. Dust from dried bird droppings can travel through your HVAC system and spread to all areas of your home, including your kitchen where it can rest on open food. Birds are also carriers of fleas and ticks, which could leave your domestic pets and family members vulnerable to bites and even Lyme disease. The professionals at Mid Atlantic Wildlife Control are trained to humanely handle bird control situations in the Caroline County area. If wildlife finds a way into your Caroline County home, our technicians will be able to remove the animals from your home as well.

Common Opossum Removal Questions

Common Opossum Removal Questions

Caroline County residents are no strangers to wildlife in their neck of the woods. While some wildlife animals are seen once or twice a day, other animals may not be seen as often, like the opossum. When you do happen to see an opossum, you never want it to be inside your Caroline County home. Often times, Caroline County residents aren’t sure how to handle the opossum removal situation, leaving them with questions. Here are some commonly asked questions surrounding opossum removal:

  1. Is an opossum a type of rat? The opossum is the only marsupial found in North America. This means they are not part of the rat family.
  2. How can I prevent opossums from entering my home? Be sure to keep any pet doors closed at all times to prevent access. You should also have vent covers in place and be aware of any cracks or opening in the structure of your home. You can also use fencing to block off the underneath of sheds, decks, and crawl spaces.
  3. What attracts an opossum? Open food of any type can attract these animals at night. This can include pet food, bird feed, and trash. You should also avoid keeping any pet droppings from the yard and remove any standing water.
  4. Should I remove the opossum myself? Never handle a wild animal on your own. If you find an opossum in your Caroline County yard or home, call the professionals at Mid Atlantic Wildlife Control.

Caroline County and Bird Control

Caroline County and Bird Control

In Caroline County, there is never a shortage of park or trail to visit and enjoy. With the wide selection of trees, there is never a shortage of birds to watch and enjoy as you stroll through a park. However, there is always the chance that one of those birds could find its way into your home. Smaller birds can find their way into your home through gaps in your roofing, ventilation from appliances, and the occasional open window. Certain local birds like sparrows, pigeons, and starlings are known to build their nests in homes and other buildings. While this may seem harmless, birds can cause serious issues with your home. Bird droppings can cause clogs and blockage in chimneys, vents, and drains, causing even more serious damage to your home. The droppings of birds are very high in acid, which can cause your home’s structure to deteriorate. It can also begin the spreading of bacteria throughout your home, which will lead to damaging health problems. Small birds aren’t the only issue in Caroline County. If you have a home close to one of the several marinas throughout the county, then you have most likely seen a seagull or goose. Birds that tend to stay close to bodies of water can cause messes out of the ramps and the surrounding marina.   When birds become a hassle in Caroline County, don’t turn to poison, call the professionals at Mid Atlantic Wildlife Control.
