Uncovered Chimney Harboring Starlings in Neptune, NJ
A new customer in Neptune, NJ was having an issue with starlings nesting in her chimney. Starlings are one of the most popular nuisance birds we deal with and have adapted well both in urban and rural areas. Starlings are often described as loud, obnoxious, destructive, and aggressive. They have outcompeted native birds and their massive flock sizes cause significant damage in a short period of time. The acidic droppings of starlings damage roofs, create sanitation problems, and pose a serious health hazard for families.
First, we carefully removed the nesting debris and then disinfected the chimney with a solution that targets bird mites. If disturbed while removing, bird mites will make their way inside and quickly infest the home. After disinfecting the area we installed a chimney cap over the chimney. This heavy-duty material is constructed out of 24 Gauge Top and Flange, and 18 Gauge Galvanized Mesh. It is designed to prevent access to the chimney from all nuisance birds, bats, and all nuisance wildlife. Now the home is properly secured!
