Starling Control & Removal Solutions in New York City, Westchester County and Long Island, NY
Fun fact about Starlings; they were actually first introduced to this country by way of Brooklyn, NY in 1850. That’s right here in our service coverage area! Once they were introduced, they quickly spread throughout the United States. House Sparrows, Pigeons, European Starlings are a very populated group of birds that reside in the NYC metro area which are actually in the minority when it comes to protection from federal laws. It’s illegal under federal law to harm and even disturb the nests of almost any other type of avian species. That’s a fact that you’ve got to take at face value. Starlings are a true nuisance to homeowners and commercial property owners alike throughout New York City, Nassau County, Suffolk County and Westchester County, NY.
Their primary source of food are grains, followed by insects, and finally the discarded food from garbage which is tossed away. The technicians in charge of Starling deterrent systems commonly find more problems among commercial properties due to the wealth of discarded food that has come from customers or employees. Like Pigeons and Sparrows, European Starlings will hang around within their nests and wait hours on end for the right time to forage food for themselves or their young.
