Barn Swallow Removal


Effective barn swallow removal is crucial for safeguarding both the structural integrity of your home and the health of your family. Although barn swallows play a key role in insect control, their nesting habits in residential and business areas can cause significant issues. Timely intervention is vital for several reasons:

1. Health and Hygiene

Barn swallows are potential carriers of parasites and mites, posing health hazards. Professional removal services are essential to mitigate these risks effectively.

2. Property Protection

The nesting habits of barn swallows can result in structural damage, especially to eaves and siding. Their nests may also obstruct drainage systems or vents.

3. Sanitation and Cleanliness

Managing barn swallow infestations is key to maintaining your property’s cleanliness. Their nests and droppings can lead to unsanitary conditions, including stains and odors.

Bats nesting in attic space

Barn swallows typically nest in open areas such as eaves or ledges, which aids in their detection. Recognizing the signs of their activity is crucial for effective removal. Be on the lookout for these indicators:

1. Daytime Chatter

Pay attention to distinctive, chirpy vocalizations near potential nesting sites during daylight hours, a common indicator of barn swallow presence.

2. Nesting Evidence

Look for nests composed of mud and grass, often found on ledge corners or under eaves, signaling barn swallow activity.

3. Dropping Spots

Inspect for droppings accumulated beneath nesting areas or on walls, as these are telltale signs of frequent barn swallow visits or nesting.

Highly recommend this group!!! Within 24 hours of my “something stinks” panic call, one of the techs, Ronnie, was at our place taking care of the animals that found their final resting place in our vents… and patched it up so we wouldn’t have this happen again. On-time, efficient, and very knowledgeable!!
