Birds Nesting in the Gable Vent in Howell, NJ
These nuisance birds were nesting in this homeowners gable vent. Because the spaces in the gable vent were quite large, the birds just squeezed right in between the spaces and started nesting there. First, we carefully removed all the nesting debris out of the attic, which weighed over 20 lbs! Afterward, we then disinfected the area, and the entire attic, with a solution that targets bird mites. Bird mites are parasites that feed on the blood of birds. When birds leave their nests, the mites are left behind without a suitable host for their next blood meal. They will make their way into a home, and once inside they will take over, climbing all over your walls, ceilings, and beddings. To make matters worse, bird mites are tiny and semi-transparent, so they are extremely difficult to detect. Bird mites are the main reason why extreme care is needed when removing a nest. The last thing you want to do is disrupt the mites that are crawling in and around the nesting material.
Once that was finished, in order to successfully exclude the birds from the home, we installed Pest-Blok over the gable vent. Pest-Blok doesn't restrict the airflow to the attic, undergoes a silicone-protected polyester coating process that makes it last longer, and guards the home against nuisance birds, bats, and all nuisance wildlife.
