Welcome to Detroit Bird Control: Prevention and Removal of Unwanted Birds

Our company specializes in resolving problems caused by birds in Detroit, Michigan, both residential and commerical. We handle bird species such as pigeons, starlings, grackles, sparros, and even Canada Geese and woodpeckers. We generally don't kill birds - we prevent them from causing problems. Most commonly, this means that we install barriers that prevent them access to your building or property, or anti-roosting devices that prevent them from landing, nesting, or roosting on your home, store, building, or anywhere. We use netting, needle strips, shock track, and more. We do offer trapping in some cases, and removal of birds from warehouses, grocery stores, or other commerical or industrial buildings by netting or sometimes pellet shooting. We have a wide variety of tools and methods for solving every manner of bird problem. Call us at 248-481-5319 to discuss your bird problem today.



Stop Birds From Accessing Your Space

We stop birds from entering almost any space by installing netting. It is strong and durable, but thin and black so that it is not visually distracting. We can prevent birds from flying or roosting under awnings, roofs, or any other architectural area.



Stop Birds From Landing Or Roosting

We install needle strips or shock track on ledges, beams, the tops of signs, and anywhere birds are roosting and causing unsightly and unhealthy droppings. We can reach any area with our ladders and boom lifts.



We Clean Droppings and Nesting Material

Birds can make a mess with their droppings - on your building, roof, or the ground, or any other area. Sometimes bird guano and nesting material accumulate. We professionally clean and decontaminate the area.

Can You Use Netting to Stop Pigeons?

Netting is a method of bird removal (as such) that can be used against many species of birds — pigeons, starlings, sparrows, etc. There are different sizes or gauges of netting, and different sized birds will need different sized netting.

If you use the wrong size netting for pigeons, you'll encounter problems. Netting that has a very small space between the wires can be missed and flown into, trapping and probably killing the bird. Netting that has a very large gauge or space between the material will still allow birds to pass right through. If the netting is too small, once again, it can act as a platform for the birds to land on, especially when it has been fixed horizontally.

Who knew there were so many bird netting things to think about?

We're not done yet.

Pigeons need netting that is around 2 inches or 50mm. This means the squares are 2 inches or 50mm across, between the strips material. The material is another important factor, as there are two main types you can buy. Just like everything else in pest removal there are disadvantages and advantages for both. Nylon netting is one option, but this isn't very long-lasting or as durable as the second option — galvanised steel wiring. There are now different options as far as nylon netting is concerned, too, each with different strengths ... and weaknesses.

Where should you use pigeon netting?

Netting is best used to dispel birds from a large area and not a small one. It is a relatively inexpensive option, and that makes it a popular choice among local governments and organizations, particularly when trying to protect older buildings. The netting is virtually unseen from ground level and is the most aesthetically pleasing option.

Agricultural land owners regularly use netting to protect larger areas from pigeons and other birds, and you will also find it commonly used in outdoor public spaces, such as bus or train stations, as well as around industrial buildings — warehouses, etc.

When shouldn't you use bird netting for pigeons?

If pigeons are regularly landing on a window sill or ledge, you'll probably find that bird spike strips are a cheaper and effort-friendly method of prevention. Installing netting can be a laborious task, and you will need to return to the area to remove any trapped/caught birds or animals, and also to check it over after periods of bad weather.

Smaller areas are better protective with a range of other approaches, including using dummies and decoys, repellents and deterrents, light or sound devices, and spikes.
