Starling Control And Management in Warwickshire
Starlings can be quite a nuisance when they decide to make their nest on your Warwickshire home and most people with a starling problem soon become desperate to get rid of them, especially when they start leaving their droppings all over your vehicle and property. However, the one problem with controlling or managing starling infestations is that, like all other wild birds, starlings are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981.
This act basically states that it is illegal to kill, injure or physically remove any starlings, and also to damage, remove or destroy any active nest or one that's currently being built. In addition, it's also forbidden to deny the starlings access to their nests, making the issue of controlling them somewhat of a problem. Still, it doesnít mean that it's impossible, as companies can apply for a limited licence to take care of the problem.
For this reason, it's definitely recommended that you hire a professional pest control company with experience managing starlings, as they will both know the legal requirements and the best methods, and only they will be able to get the necessary licence. The exact process the pest control company will use to manage your starling problem depends on a number of factors, including how many there are, the time of the year and where they're roosting at.
In some cases, it's possible to stop them from roosting on a building by using spikes or nets that prevent them from landing on any suitable nesting site. Other times the pest management company may use certain acoustic devices that emit distress calls that the starlings donít like, which usually keep them away as well.
On the other hand, some pest control companies in the U.K. have begun using falconry as a method of starling control, as these birds of prey can be trained to fly around the home and scare away all of the nesting starlings.
