Birds may find their way into our homes or more specifically our attics. If we take the right precautions unwanted birds won’t be a problem for our homes. Here are three ways to prevent birds from getting into your attic.
Install Steel Screens
Birds are often able to maneuver through small holes in the roof or siding of a home to get into the attic. Inspect your home for any holes or vulnerable areas such as the chimney or outside vents. Install a tight mesh steel screen to keep birds from going in and out of those small holes and making your attic a nesting area.
Strategically Add Bird Houses Away from Your Home
Make your attic less appealing by installing one or two birdhouses around your property. Birds such as woodpeckers will choose easily accessible houses over your attic, just make sure to:
- Place houses high enough
- Provide a “landing stick”
- Create the right sized opening
Remove Anything Appealing to Birds
Birds will be less likely to nest in your attic if you remove anything that might make your property more attractive to them. A few helpful suggestions include:
- Feeding pets indoors instead of outdoors
- Remove fruit or nuts fallen from trees
- Keep heavy lids on your garbage cans
- Remove bird feeders or move farther away
