-- There are many different types of wildlife species in the Chicago suburbs that could cause problems for homeowners but one such nuisance species that is often overlooked is birds. Birds are small animals that can enter a home through any size entry point in the attic, windows, chimney, and vents. They cause problems by building nests within these areas which could lead to structural damage and their droppings can spread a number of diseases to humans. Attic Solutions (http://www.attic-
, a wildlife control specialist in the Chicago area, provides bird control and removal services to effectively eliminate bird infestations from a home.
The Chicago area is home to many species of birds (http://www.attic-
birds.php), the most troublesome of which include small birds such as swifts, sparrows, and woodpeckers as well as larger birds like pigeons and Canadian geese. Certain birds may cause specific problems like the woodpecker pecking away at wooden structures but they can all cause physical damage to a home by getting stuck or building their nests in the vents which could damage the heating and cooling system. They can also make a home unsanitary with their droppings and they have been known to carry and transmit over 60 diseases to humans including salmonella, E. coli, and histoplasmosis among others.
The professionals of Attic Solutions can completely remove any size bird infestation regardless of the species. Their staff will also employ methods of bird control after the infestation has been removed to help prevent a bird infestation in the future.
