WOOD-PECKER CREATING DAMAGE ON YOUR HOUSE?
There are 12 different species of Woodpeckers in Colorado (learn more here). All of these birds are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, (MBTA) which means there are slightly less choices in regard to mitigation. What does this mean for you when these birds are creating damage? Male Woodpeckers typically start pecking in mid-January, January, find a mate and have eggs by July 15th. After that date, they are “untouchable” until the time that their eggs hatch and babies have left the nest (typically August 15th). There are many things a Wood-Pecker specialist can do to help fix, and decrease damage, and to help make your property as non-attractive and non-accessible as possible for future nesting

Also known as the “rat of the sky” pigeons are extremely smart animals who have actually been shown to be able to conceptualize. That being said, pigeons can also create enormous damage and create a dangerous situation in regard to sanitation. Often, we see pigeons nesting under solar panels, or in eave returns. Most of the time, this can be fixed with a bird barrier or bird netting and some sanitizing of the area, however it is typical that they will just move to another eave or another panel if possible. Because of their nesting habits and issues with sanitation, it is highly advised to call a licensed and trained pigeon removal expert at Blue Tick Pest & Wildlife Control Specialists to help assess and complete the exclusion work.
MUD SWALLOWS AND OTHER BIRDS IN COLORADO
Mud Swallows and other birds in Colorado can create a number of issues with possible damage to the structure(s) as well as the spreading of diseases and mites throughout the structure. Bird mites of many kinds can reproduce within the tens of thousands per week, and damage can range from esthetic, to structural and possibly affect the insurability of the structure. The importance of calling as soon as you see sign of birds nesting on or in the structure is of great importance, and in the end is going to be best for you and the birds.
