When a bird ends up in your home you may feel panicky yet amazed at the fact that this magnificent feathered animal has somehow managed to find its way into your home. The first thing that you should do is call a professional as they are well equipped and experienced in handling these creatures. These professionals will ensure that the bird is handled safely and not killed or harmed in any way.
When birds enter into the unfamiliar territory of a structured foundation it is a new world for them. They are mildly clueless as to what is going on but they are actively taking in the activity that is surrounding them. Most birds will stay in high areas such as ceilings, wooded boards, bookshelves and high fireplaces. Some of them may stay inside of vents and closed areas. Be careful if this happens as they may be trapped and cannot get out. If they die it can release a horrific odor that will be extremely hard to get rid of.
Depending on the type of bird that has entered your home you may have a rougher time getting rid of them. Pigeons, for example, are persistent and they do not like to be uprooted from their comfortable surroundings. Birds often leave their droppings wherever they can and having one in your home can lead to several cleaning sessions with your carpet and flooring. If a bird is in a high area there is nothing you can do to control where the animal does its business. Just make sure to use bacteria ridding products so that no diseases can be spread.
Most states and countries have laws that prohibit the harm or killing of certain birds so be mindful of this if you are planning to try to rid your home of these creatures yourself. If you feed birds then you are encouraging them to stay. Do not feed them bread or other dried products that you know they love to partake of. They will take this as a sign of welcome and will put up a fight when being ushered to leave.
Many birds tend to become noisy so if you love the peace and quiet of your home be prepared for a change. When birds are stuck or uncomfortable in their environment they can get pretty loud and the chirps will become more annoying. So much for that goodnights sleep.
Do not try to swat or agitate the bird to get them out of the house as this will cause them to become scared and aggravated. When a bird becomes aggravated they panic and this will lead to them flying all around the house and leaving little nasty presents behind. Make sure that you leave the bird in a calm state and remember it is just as uncomfortable and unfamiliar as you are. You don’t want a wild bird randomly flying around your house because it may contain certain diseases or bacteria’s that can harm your family.
