Three Ways to Prevent Swallow Nests

Bug Lady posted this on Aug 3, 2016

Before you know it the swallows will return to make their mark on your customer’s homes and businesses. These beautiful little birds can make an ugly mess on any overhang-type structure such as eaves, porch roofs, and underneath decks. Bird Barrier offers three different ways to repel the birds. All are safe and don’t impact the birds themselves.

Mud Swallows generally nest in the 90 degree angle where an exterior wall meets an overhang. They build nests from mud, and while they are an impressive feat, the mud and droppings from the birds create quite a mess on the building and the ground. The rule-of-thumb is that their corner must be eliminated, and the deterrent must keep them out of the protected area they desire.

Bird Barrier offers three products that will prevent Swallows from building their mud nests; StealthNet, BirdSlide and Bird-Shock Flex-Track.

Learn how to use these products for Swallow nest prevention.

As a reminder, swallows are a federally-protected species, and completed nests may not be disturbed at any time between February 15 and September 1 (without a special permit), so you must take preventative measures quickly before our little feathered friends make a mess of your roost!
