Bird in Vent Removal
Bird in vent removal is a common problem that Wildlife Technicians encounter throughout Texas including Dallas, Midland, Houston, Tyler, Corpus Christi, and surrounding areas. Birds will start attempting to get into vents usually in the later part of March. They will attempt to get into any vent in the home; some of the more common vents that you will find birds in are kitchen vents, high bathroom vents, dryer vents, and lower ground level vents used to exhaust gas furnaces and other appliances. One of the first things that customers will tell us is that they hear scratching in the vents. This noise may or may not be scratching since birds have long claws on their toes that they use for gripping tree limbs and other objects. In many cases, the scratching noise may simply be the bird walking in the metal vent pipe.
It is always recommended that a professional wildlife removal company handle the removal of a bird from a vent. Birds are very nasty creatures that carry many parasites and diseases that they are associated with. These parasites should be treated with commercial grade chemicals that can only be purchased by professional pest control companies. Birds can carry lice and other mites that can make their way into the living areas of your home. Many customers will complain of bugs falling down inside the bathroom or kitchen from the vented areas.
Other problems can arise when you have a bird in your vent. The longer the bird is in the vent, the bigger the amount of nesting materials that the bird will bring into the vent to build a nest. The build up of nesting material could potentially completely block the vent, allowing no airflow through the vent. This could be potentially disastrous if the bird is building a nest in a gas vent or another vent that is critical to the operation of the home.
