Residential Inspection and Pest Removal in Sydney, NSW

There is no silver bullet solution for getting rid of birds and some are known to return to their previous habitat for nesting or because of easy access to food. Using a range of preventative measures around your home and garden, such as removing access to nesting sites, will help keep their numbers down. Appointing a qualified pest control operator, such as the experienced team at Safe Pest Control, means effective and humane methods will be used to eliminate the problem.

Some bird species need very little shelter to build their nest, while others are small enough to get into your roof space for a protected spot. It’s not just the damage to your property that you need to worry about. Birds carry a range of diseases and the spores from their droppings can pose a serious health risk to humans. Some species, such as pigeons, carry ticks, fleas and bird mites and if these insects start to infest your home, then your problem has just increased ten-fold.

The Best Bird Pest Control Services in Sydney
  1. Eliminate their water source and other places where they can feed. This includes your gutters – keep them clean to prevent water from building up.
  2. Don’t feed any pest birds. If you do, they won’t see any reason to leave and will bring their friends!
  3. Keep the lids on your garbage bins at all times and keep this area as clean as possible. Any food scraps or scattered rubbish will attract nuisance birds straight away.
  4. Seal openings (for example, under your eaves), where smaller birds can enter. Use plywood, wire mesh or netting for the most effective results. When you’re doing this, if you notice evidence of a nest, remove it.
  5. Call the professionals! Our friendly and knowledgeable team here at Safe Pest Control has highly effective and humane treatments for bird control.

Signs of Birds in your home

Birds are generally quite noisy, so identifying an infestation in or around your home is easier than with other household pests. Knowing where to look will help. Places like under the eaves, gutters, in chimney stacks and on balconies are some of the common places where you’d expect to find nests. Inside your roof space is also a common spot, particularly for species such as pigeons.

Here are some of the other telltale signs that you have a bird problem in your home:
  • Large amounts of droppings which, believe it or not, is one of the biggest problems associated with these pests. Highly acidic, their droppings can cause damage to metal surfaces and even strip paint from your walls.
  • If you see a bird nest or debris from a nest such as branches and twigs, then chances are you have some unwanted house guests. This can also be problematic when the branches and twigs block your gutters and drain
  • If you’re a keen gardener and your fruit trees and vegetable gardens are being ravaged time and time again, it’s likely the common sparrow or Indian Mynah has set up residence.
  • Visual sightings – you will see and hear a bird problem if you have one in your home. They are noisy, hard-working creatures, particularly when they’re nesting.


I originally hired Safe Pest Control to get rid of a cockroach infestation; their team were quick, polite, and their solution was pet safe and completely solved the problem. They called me every six months to see if I needed a follow up appointment and I had to sadly tell them I didn’t need their services as I had not had any more pest issues since their first visit. However, when I needed an end of lease service six years later, they were the first and only people I would call!
