We Can Remove Starlings If Needed

Call Today: 203-758-0555


Starlings were intentionally introduced to New York over a century ago, and they spread across the country in the ensuing decades. Starlings can reproduce twice a year, with four to seven offspring each time.

The birds eat many foods, including seeds, larval insects, and fruit from trees. They will also eat food they find in trash containers or left at parks and picnic sites.


They Seem To Live Anywhere

Starlings live in a variety of habitats, ranging from agricultural to urban areas. They travel in flocks and often graze in short grass. They perch in trees or on gutters, which may be clogged and provide water for the birds.

Starlings can cause significant problems for humans. Their droppings can cause steel building components to degrade and lead to structural damage. Soil with starling droppings can promote the growth of fungi and lead to diseases, including histoplasmosis. Starlings have also been known to strike aircraft, which puts pilots and passengers at risk.


Are Starlings Causing A Problem With Your Home?

If starlings are causing a problem at your home with their nests and droppings or because they are eating food from your trash cans, call Anderson Wildlife Control. We will safely and humanely remove the birds and relocate them so they will not cause any problems in the future. We do not use any poisons. Our methods are humane and environmentally friendly.

Once the starlings have been removed, steps need to be taken to keep them from coming back. We can seal any openings to your house that are larger than one inch to prevent starlings from getting back in and rebuilding their nests. Trees can be trimmed to reduce the number of places available for starlings to perch. Horizontal surfaces can be eliminated by adding obstructions, such as wire repellents. Pet food and trash cans should be kept covered to make them inaccessible to starlings. Gutters should be cleaned regularly to prevent pooling water.


Contact the professionals

If starlings have become a problem, don’t wait to take action. Contact Anderson Wildlife Control today. We will trap and relocate the birds and make modifications to your home to prevent them or others from building nests in the future.
