Common Problem Birds For Barnes Wildlife Contro


Woodpeckers cause damage to wooden and EIFS structures by their chronic pecking and drilling of holes. The drumming of a woodpecker is annoying and can wake you up from sleep. Bird drumming is performed by male woodpeckers proclaiming their territories. Damage to wood cabins and insulated stucco-sided buildings are most common. The woodpecker pecks holes into wooden siding, fascia and rake boards, and window casing in search of food or a suitable nesting site.

The Downy Woodpecker seems to cause the most damage around the Miami Valley and both the male and female chip away the wood material to excavate the nest cavity together. Both sexes share the responsibilities of incubating and feeding young so when controlling woodpeckers both males and females are usually to blame. Peak breeding season is February to March and approximately 5 eggs incubate for 12 days. Young baby downy woodpeckers fledge (get their feathers) around 24 days after hatching from the egg.

Pigeons are a common bird pest around Dayton, Ohio, and surrounding areas. We remove a lot of pigeons in downtown Springfield Ohio and Sidney, Ohio.

All pigeons are opportunists and will nest in your home or business, and they become a huge problem when they poop everywhere and start to cause structural damage to your building and roof.

Pigeon bird waste is corrosive to many building materials such as metal and iron, and we have worked on pigeon control at many gas stations after their canopies collapse.   

Generally, pigeons nest near tall buildings, and their poop covers window sills and ledges. Pigeon droppings have an unmistakable pungent odor that your clients and tenants don’t want exposure to due to health concerns.

There are various types of sparrows in Ohio, but the one that seems to cause the most problems here in Ohio is the House Sparrow. Sparrows eat mostly seeds and are often seen at bird feeders alongside the similarly sized finch.

The House Sparrow is one of the most hated Ohio birds. Farmers brought House Sparrows, not native to the UDS,  to the United States to eat crop-destructive insects. But the project failed since the house sparrow primarily ate seeds, not insects. The House Sparrow soon became farm pests by consuming vast amounts of grain.

The sparrow’s small size allows them to fit through tiny cracks in your home and business which leads to a bird infestation with the potential for bird mites and lice to come in contact with you.

The first Starling spotted in Ohio was in 1916. The starling population dramatically increased in the 1920s until they moved into all Ohio counties. Soon after that, flocks of 1,000 – 5,000 birds flew through the fall Ohio skies. In the past, people reported seeing a flock of over 100,000 starlings.

Now, Ohio residents see large flocks of starlings flocks throughout the year, and now Ohio has the largest breeding population of starlings in North America. The Starling is considered a destructive pest causing populations of many native species to decline because starlings forcing them out of their habitat.

Starlings are by far the most annoying and troublesome bird that nests in residential houses in southwestern Ohio homes. Starlings are medium-sized birds with blackish-grey feathers with silver and white flecks. Starlings are very intelligent and witty as they regularly figure out to open the flaps on vents mounted to the side of homes.They will eat almost anything such as seeds, garbage, meats, and insects.
