Many pest management professionals (PMPs) get frustrated when tackling bird control projects. We understand; it can be tricky. Here are three pro tips to make your job a lot easier.
- Disinfect properly. Bird pheromones influence bird behavior. If a flock has produced generational offspring, they almost always will return to their nesting site. Remove bird waste properly and eliminate all odors by using a product that has the correct ingredients for erasing the pheromone imprint. Not all cleaning products work the same, so be savvy about what brings permanent results.
- Start with the “hot spots.” Especially when working on a large or complex bird job, it is smart to start with treating the “hot spot” areas. Communicate with your customer your plan to create a testing area first to ensure proper results and long-term success. This smart strategy will save you both on labor and profits.
- Don’t be shy about asking for help. If you are new to bird work or have a complicated project, seek a trained professional for advice — someone whose knowledge in bird biology and species will guide you to a correct solution. This go-to relationship should continually help you land new bird jobs while saving you time to handle other areas of your busy workload.
