The first thing that should be done is to Inspect your home for Bird Nesting Sites

Walk around your home and take note of Exhaust Vents, Gables, and any area that a bird might possibly enter like an electric stack passing through your soffitting, a poor fitting soffit at the roof line, Exhaust Vents with broken louvers.

These are all easily accessible nesting areas for birds particularly birds that have been reared in such areas.

If the nesting site is easily accessible you can discourage the birds from nesting by removing the nesting material daily.

How to remove bird nests from these areas:

- Removing Bird nest from Exhaust Vents
- Removing Bird nest from Soffitting
- Removing Bird nest from gap in a Gable

Removing Bird nests from and Bird Proofing Exhaust Vents:

To remove a bird nest from an Exhaust Vent its best to do this before the birds lay their eggs.

- Remove the old vent and replace with a new screened vent.
- Clean any old caulking from wall and try not to dislodge the internal Exhaust ducting when removing vent cover.
- Remove nesting material and spray area with a cleaner. Wipe area clean.
- Pre-fit and test to make sure your new screened vent fits correctly.
- Colour of the vents can vary. White is preferable, not as noticeable to wildlife.
- Use caulking, cement anchor or screws depending on surface to adhere vent to wall

If there are young in the nest and they can not hop then you can remove them safely without the possibility of the young hopping deeper in to your roof and dying.

If the young can hop away from you and possibly die in your roof line its probably best to wait until they have left the nest on their own.

You can relocate the young into a 1-gallon plastic jug. Cut a 4-inch flap into the jug, pry open the flap so it becomes a roof to the hole. Hang the jug a foot below the original nesting area fill with original nesting material and place young in the jug. Clean out original nesting site and seal with hardware cloth or aluminium sheeting. Remove jug after birds leave nest.

Removing Bird nests from and Bird Proofing your Soffit:
