Bird Pest Control

To successfully eliminate pest birds from your garden or yard you must first understand a few concepts. First, some knowledge of bird control information. This includes the laws that apply and also what products are available and how to use them. Second, some bird psychology. These are both necessary for birds to get the message that they are not welcome and to leave.

The Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 makes it illegal to hunt, trap, possess, harm or kill any migratory birds, unless allowed by special permit. That being said, there are many products available to help get rid of nuisance birds as well as some make-it-yourself solutions.
