How To Control StarlingsStarling

Starlings are birds that are can be beautiful to look at as they navigate throughout the environment. However, they can very quickly become an irritating issue due to their nesting and eatings habits. Once starlings have found a place they enjoy, they will begin to flood the area in droves with their population. In recent years, starlings have become an increasingly irritating problem especially in cities where starlings hang around buildings and places of business in large mobs.

While they are relatively harmless they can be quite frustrating near homes or places of business because wherever Starlings are plentiful, there will be a large amount of droppings to be expected. These excessive amounts of droppings not only can create an unsightly mess but they can also make for walking conditions that are quite dangerous due to the potential of slipping and falling from the droppings. Even worse, is the fact that starlings and their droppings can potentially transmit deadly diseases.

If you’ve been frustrated with a starling infestation on your property you’re probably wondering what the best way is to get rid of starling. Here at Solutions Pest and Lawn we have a wide selection of products and methods that will help you put an end to those bothersome starlings and keep them at bay.

How To Get Rid of Starlings - Solutions 3 Step Guide

If you do a quick google search, you’ll find a variety of methods that you can try out when attempting to control starling populations. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean those methods you find will be effective. At Solutions Pest and Lawn, we have skilled pest control professionals and entomologists on staff who can point you in the right direction when it comes to techniques and products which actually work. For starling control, we suggest a control program which includes a combination of repellents and deterrents.

Step 1: In order to get rid of starlings, you need to first assess the situation. By observing the birds, you should take note of their behavior and jot down their flight patterns, how they enter and exit, what times are they most active and their other feeding and nesting habits.

Step 2: Put into place some exclusion and preventative measures by sealing off points of entry and making the environment less welcome to starlings. This can be achieved by doing things like trimming and pruning tree branches which is a commonplace that starlings like to gather. Sanitation also works by clearing off droppings and food sources like garbage that starlings like to look into in their search for food.

Step 3: Repellants are likely the best method to keep starlings away from your property. We have multiple repellent products like 4 The Birds-Bird Repellent Gel as well as 4 The Birds Liquid Repellent which can be laid out in the areas where you have noticed the most starling activity. These products will make residing in the area uncomfortable and unsavory to starlings. Typical places to apply these products include window sills, roof ridges, gutters, parapets and ledges.

Step 4: A few other repellent options which are effective include sound devices like BirdXPeller PRO Audio Bird Deterrent which contains recorded bird distress calls which will scare starlings off from the area. and other frightening devices may be effective in dispersing starlings before they establish territory. A bird frightening agent like Avitrol is also a great deterrent of starlings as it produces symptoms which throws birds off their normal functioning and scares off other birds from staying in the area.
