Birds 101 - What You Need to Know About A Bird Infestation

Recognizing the Warning Signs There’s a Bird in Your Home

Most people will know right away if there’s a bird in the house. Unlike other wildlife that stay in the attics or walls, birds may be freely flying around your home. If you’re dealing with birds in the house that aren’t the family parakeet, the Critter Stop team in Southlake is here to help. Our team of professionals works with Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex homeowners to keep their houses and businesses free from rodents, wildlife, and birds.

On this page, we’ll walk you through some of the indicators that you have birds making themselves at home in your house. If you need our help clearing birds out and reclaiming your home, give us a call at (214) 234-2616. We are happy to work with homes and businesses in Arlington, Garland, Grand Prairie, and all of the DFW Metro area.

Birds normally stay out of the house, but when they nest inside, start the real problem. 

What You’ll See Inside the Home

When we have provided our animal removal services, we have found that most birds will enter through ventilation and gable vents, through a hole created by another neighborhood pest, or through an open door or window. They are unlikely to do any damage to get into your home, but once they’re inside, they can leave waste all over the house.

If you see the telltale white spots, hear chirping, or see a bird flying around, it’s time to call our team. If birds have taken up residence in the attic, they may go unnoticed for awhile, and the most obvious indicator will likely be the sounds. If you hear chirping or bird song that doesn’t seem to be coming from outside, take a peek into the attic. If you see signs of nesting or the birds themselves, the Critter Stop team has you covered.

What You’ll See Outside the Home

Many homeowners with birds in the attic notice nesting materials sticking out of their eaves or in their gutters, feces on the walls and ground near a point of access, and a large number of birds congregating around their homes. This becomes especially problematic if there are birds around your home outside of their regular season. That means they have taken up permanent residence!

Critter Stop’s 4 Step Process to Keep Your Home Bird Free

Birds can be easy enough to remove from the home, but our four step process is very important for bird infestation. It is essentially that we seal up entry points to ensure birds don’t get back in. Then, we trap and remove the birds. Next, we sanitize in and around the home, removing droppings, nesting areas, and other materials. Finally, we’ll put up spikes and other deterrents to keep birds away from your home or office in the future.

Whether you need bird removal for your Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex home or commercial building, the Critter Stop team has you covered! We have provided our services hundreds of times, so we have the experience to solve your problem now. Call us now at (214) 234-2616 and schedule a free inspection with our expert team.

I’d give a 10 star review if I could! We had a great experience with Critter Stop. Everyone I dealt was friendly, professional, and reassuring. Phillip was very helpful and knowledgeable about the work he was doing. He walked me around the entire house to make sure I saw and understood the services he provided. He was also really nice and answered all my questions — he is exactly the type of person that should be interacting with customers.I love the fact that they will come back for up to 1 year after installation if any problems occur — this shows me they stand behind their work.The owner was great too, he personally came to my house and walked me through their offering. I recommend critter stop to anyone and everyone!

Critter Stop is a fantastic business! Everyone involved is extremely professional and very easy to communicate with. Chisam, the owner, did a great job of explaining the process to get the squirrels out of my attic during the initial free estimate. The exclusion crew who did all of the initial work was fabulous. The crew consisted of Phillip, Nick and Corey who arrived promptly when they said they would. They are happy, positive employees. Everyone is very polite and patient in explaining their work and answering questions. They came back several times to check the traps and finish it off with the fogging. Lester was very good about following up to schedule each trap check with me, and the office staff who took care of the billing was very efficient. Critter Stop is a well run company with honest, trustworthy employees! Thank you to all of you who worked hard to make my attic critter free and for the peace of mind that you guarantee your work. Great to know I can call them if for some reason a squirrel figures out a way to get back in!

The guys at Critter Stop responded quickly, were very friendly, and gave us an honest estimate of what we might need. They explained why some items on other quotes were or were not necessary. They communicated well to get us scheduled, and did the work well and quickly. Great service at a fair and competitive price.

Brandon and his other coworker Gavin came to install insulation in my attic. I am very grateful for the hard work and professionalism. My house feels a lot better with the insulation installed. 5 star review. Cory Leach was also very nice and helpful. He came to my house to do another job and was very attentive and professional.
