Why are there birds in my attic?
As stated in the paragraph above, birds are seeing their habitat destroyed by the building of homes and buildings, usually when we see a high concentration of bird in the attic calls, it is directly related to a area that has a lot of buildings and a lot homes. When a contractor builds these structures, they knock down trees and bushes, which is usually the birds natural nesting areas. As birds loose these natural nesting areas, they adapt and start to use alternative nesting areas, such as vents and attic spaces. Some of the other types of services we offer are Bird Spike Installation and Bird Removal from Stores.
How long will the birds be in my attic?
Once a bird gains access to your attic space, they will remain there for approximately 3 to 4 months. The amount of time birds are in the attic space can vary depending on the amount of time it takes the female bird to lay her eggs and hatch them and raise them till they are able to fly. Depending on the type of bird this process will take anywhere from 18 to 26 days for the birds eggs to hatch. Then it will take another 3 to 4 weeks for the baby birds to learn to fly, so all total you are looking at 2 to 4 months. Maybe longer if the nesting process fails and the bird will have to start all over.
