Starling Control and Management in Leamington Spa

Starlings can sometimes be a nuisance when they choose to make their nest on your Leamington Spa home and most of those that have a starling dilemma soon become eager to make them go away, particularly when they start leaving their droppings on your car and property. But, the one trouble with controlling or managing starling problems is that, just like any other wild birds, starlings are guarded under the Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981.

This act generally states that it is prohibited to kill, hurt or physically remove any starlings, and also to damage, take out or ruin any occupied nest or one that's being set up. Additionally, it's also prohibited to not allow the starlings access to their nests, making the case of managing them somewhat of a problem. However, it doesn't show that it is not possible, given that companies can ask for a limited licence to control the issue.

Because of this, it's clearly advised that you work with an established pest control company with experience of dealing with starlings, as they will both know the authorized requirements plus the most effective methods, and only they will be able to obtain the needed licence. The specific procedure of the pest control company will use to get through your starling dilemma relies upon a few factors, like how many there are, the time of the year and the place where they're roosting at.

In some circumstances, one can possibly stop them from roosting onto a property through the use of spikes or nets that avoid them from getting on anysuitable nesting site. In other instances the pest control company may work with certain acoustic equipments that send out misery calls that the starlings dislike, which often keep them away too.

However, several pest control companies in the U.K. have started utilizing falconry as a method of starling control, because these birds of prey can be educated to fly around the property and scare away the entire nesting starlings.
