Frequently Asked Questions of Southwest Avian Solutions

We Provide Pigeon & Bird Control Guaranteed Solutions

Non-native birds on the other hand like pigeons, sparrows or starlings were introduced into the United States a long time ago and since that time have become a real problem in Arizona especially as you may now be learning if they are nesting or roosting on your home or business in large or even small groups - Not So Cute Now Are They?

 

Below is a list of some of the more popular bird control questions we get on the telephone or in the field, just click on the question to open and close it.

 

 

1. Do you guarantee your bird control work and the products you use. - Click To Expand / Collapse

Of course we Guarantee all of our work and are members of the BBB ...

Depending on the type of bird or pigeon control project Southwest Avian Solutions, LLC will guarantee all of our workmanship for up to 5 years and 5 years on most all the products we use - See Our Full "Bird Free Guarantee" Below.

Our “Certified Installers” have done thousands of bird proofing services and bird control exclusion services. We know what bird control deterrent or pigeon control deterrent will work and what bird control products don’t work for your Arizona pest birds that's why we know we can stand behind everything we do and offer you our exclusive “Bird Free Guarantee”

2. Are you licensed and Insured to do bird control. - Click To Expand / Collapse

We are licensed by the Arizona Department of Ag. and are fully Insured for homes to hangars

Our business license number is 5474 and the qualifying party number is 754.

We are licensed by the Arizona Department of Ag. under the Arizona Office of Pest Management” or “OPM” division and are in full compliance to the required insurance regulations. We have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and we are also registered with the federal government and have a CCR# and Cage Code# for work on US Government projects and military bases.

All our employees are paid hourly and are not independent contractors like some companies use which may charge you less for the work they do, but that could open you up to a lawsuit if the laborer gets hurt on your property as they will have no recourse but to sue you for their medical bills. Always ask for proof of “employee” insurance.

3. What is the average cost to bird proof a home in Phoenix. - Click To Expand / Collapse

Every home or business is different, even neighbors with the same home ....

Our prices are based on how many bird problems areas you have, the time to clean the nesting materials or pigeon poop and disinfect the roof areas that we are working on as well as the bird control products like bird spike or materials like bird screening that needs to be installed to prevent re-entry of the pest birds, so every home or structure is going to be different which is why we need to inspect the problem areas of your home or structure before we can submit a price.

We do have a minimum change which is $ 200.00 but over the years we find that the range is usually between $ 250.00 - $850.00 but there are some residential services have cost $ 2,500.00 or more for very severely infested homes where it takes a crew or 2 or 3 installers several days to complete the clean-up and pest bird exclusion work - so don't delay.

4. What's the cost to screen for pigeons under residential solar panels. - Click To Expand / Collapse

Just installed panels will be different than panels with lots of pigeons under them ....

Solar panels are quickly becoming a favorite nesting spot for pigeons and if not dealt with at the first sign of bird activity can get really full of pigeon nests, pigeon poop and debris which is difficult to get out from under the panels with only about 6 - 8” or so.

Depending on the amount of solar panels we are pigeon proofing solar panels with easy access all around that have recently been installed and have no activity usually can be pigeon proofed for $ 400.00 – 600.00 and solar panels that have lots of activity have been $ 700.00 - $ 1,200.00 depending on access, number of panels and layout of panels.

The above prices are just an example and depend on if the solar panels are owned or leased, have a frame or not, type of roof – flat tile or hump tile roof etc. Don’t put it off; the problems and pigeon population will only get worst.

Call us today at 602-942-6550 or 480-969-2337 to schedule a free solar panel inspection and estimate.   

5. What if the birds don't leave after you do the bird proofing. - Click To Expand / Collapse

Remember it may take a bit of time for the pest birds to get the hint ....

After we do your bird control services and have excluded the birds from their nesting or roosting sites they sometimes will hang around for days or even a week or so until they realize that the old nesting areas are no longer home and then they usually move on to another nearby unprotected home or business that provides nesting sites.

Remember that birds are living creatures and may move to unprotected areas of your home or structure, if so, additional work may be advised or needed to keep the birds out of that new location.

We try to cover all possible areas on our inspection and estimate when we look at the structure but sometimes additional work or possibly live trapping is needed to remove that last stubborn bird or two.

6. Why should I choose you over a slight cheaper company. - Click To Expand / Collapse

Price is important, but the long term results you get are the thing you are going for....

Most all of the installers at Southwest Avian Solutions have been doing bird control work in Arizona for  5 – 10 years and combined we have done well over 4500 bird or pigeon control exclusion projects.  Our “Certified Bird Control Installers” are trained, experienced, equipped and know what it takes to keep the birds off your building. We may not be the cheapest company nor are we the most expensive, we’re just the most experienced and will be around to back up our “Bird-Free Guarantee” unlike many companies that have come and gone over the past 30 plus years.

7. Why don't I just use my pest control company. - Click To Expand / Collapse

They do bugs on the ground and not birds on the roof ....

Would you use a dentist to tune-up your car? Then why use a pest control company that is not use to being on roof tops or dealing with birds, their habits and their waste cleanup to try and fix or eliminate your pest bird problems.

It takes considerable training and experience to develop, learn, and master successful and effective bird control.

This is a highly specialized trade that involves planning, preparation and a skill set that most pest control companies or handyman services cannot provide. We specialize in pigeons and other pest bird control. I am 100% confident we can work together to create a pest bird free environment or facility if you give us the opportunity.

The small amount of money you may save now just adds to the cost to fix the problem correctly later.

8. Why not use the services of a handyman. - Click To Expand / Collapse

They can only guess at what needs to be done or will use ineffective chicken wire ....

Again, would you use a dentist to tune-up your car? Then why use a handyman company that is not used to being on roof tops or dealing with birds, their habits and their waste cleanup to try and fix or eliminate your pest bird problems.

It takes considerable training and experience to develop, learn, and master successful and effective bird control.

We specialize in pigeons and other pest bird control. I am 100% confident we can work together to create a pest bird free environment or facility if you give us the opportunity.

The small amount of money you may save now just adds to the cost to fix the problem correctly later.

9. What happens in 4 or 5 years if i need some additional work done. - Click To Expand / Collapse

Additional work is usually a time and material with no minimum charge....

With 32 years in the state of Arizona doing pest control, bee removals, gopher control, bat exclusion and bird proofing services we, unlike many companies that have started and stopped offering bird control work in Arizona because of how dirty or labor intensive it is as a side line, this is all we do.

We are a Bird control Specialty Company and we plan on being around for a long time to come which is why we can back up our guarantee and offer you our exclusive “Bird-Free Guarantee”.

10. If i move what happens to my warrantee or guarantee. - Click To Expand / Collapse

If the building is still within the 5 year or 3 year guarantee it is covered ....

Your “Bird-Free Guarantee” will still be in effect for the remainder of the stated guarantee period and can be passed on to the new owner as long as the areas we have closed or installed products are not damaged due to acts of God, weather or persons not employed by Southwest Avian Solutions since that will void any guarantee or warrantee.

11. Can you help me with my bird problems at my business. - Click To Expand / Collapse

Commercial buildings and structures make up a large part of our work ....

Southwest Avian Solutions has done bird proofing to all sorts of commercial buildings and structures that have included gas station canopies, multi-story office buildings, freeway underpasses, power plants, libraries, billboards and just about any type of structure you can imagine that would have or get a pest bird problem.

It takes a considerable amount of training and experience to develop, learn, and master successful and effective bird control for commercial buildings because of many different factors like safety to employees and customers during the day and access to the height of the problem areas that commercial buildings present. This is a highly specialized trade that involves planning, preparation and a skill set that in a commercial environment most companies do not posses.

Call use now for a site survey and let us show you how to get rid of pigeons and other pest birds from your buildings.

12. Do you bird proof other structures like signs or billboards. - Click To Expand / Collapse

Signs or Billboards offer some challenges, but most can be bird proofed ....

Most signs or large commercial signs can usually be bird proofed using bird spike or shock track systems depending on the design. Billboards on the other hand are some of the hardest structures to bird proof because of the open sides and top areas, then add people crawling around inside between the panels and the sheets wrapping around the sides and it is next to impossible which is why you see a lot of the billboards with plywood along the bottom to catch all the poop falling down. We have some luck pigeon proofing billboards but most of them we have had to walk way from.

13. Do you pigeon proof gas station canopies. - Click To Expand / Collapse

Gas canopies take a lot of work, but netting done right can prevent pigeons for many years ....

Pigeon poop in the gutters or on a gas canopy will eat the bottom right out of them, if its really bad the canopy will fall over the the one in Yuma did some years ago (we looked at it a year before it fell, the pigeon poop was 2 - 3' high over the entire canopy, worst I ever saw) Gas station canopies can be pigeon proofed fairly easy using 2" or 1 1/8" netted over the top of the canopy. If the pigeon problems is real bad we many need to live trap the pigeons for a month or so to reduce the resident population or they will roost and sleep all over then net after its done. The problem most companies make is the support system the company installs does not hold up or the net tears because it was not installed properly and once the net starts to tear its trashed. It may look simple and easy installing a net over a gas canopy and it is if you know what your doing and have done as many as we have.

14. I've have other companies out, nothing seems to work, can you help. - Click To Expand / Collapse

Training and Experience make a big difference, call us today and find out ....

It takes considerable training and experience to develop, learn, and master successful and effective bird control that will last for many years and look discrete. What we do is a highly specialized trade that involves planning, preparation and a skill set that most pest control companies, handyman services or general bird control companies cannot provide.

We specialize in pigeons and other pest bird control. I am 100% confident we can work together to create a pest bird free environment or facility if you give us the opportunity.

15. What types of commercial structures do you work on. - Click To Expand / Collapse
