Bird jobs vary. If you need to prevent pigeons from roosting on a building, the job will usually be priced out and itemized by linear or square footage to install pigeon deterrent
devices, such as needle strips or shock track. There may also be netting costs, pigeon trapping (or shooting) costs, and cleanup costs. Usually a pigeon exclusion and prevention
job is fairly expensive, often several thousand dollars.
If you simply have a bird on the loose, flying around in a store or warehouse or something, that job is obviously not as expensive, but again, depending on factors related to the
difficulty of the job, the cost will vary. Maybe a few hundred dollars for such a job.
How much does Canada Goose removal cost? There are many methods for Canadian Goose control, so costs vary depending on the method. You might do a program of egg addling, or dog
harassment, pyrotechnics, goose roundup, etc. The size of the property, the number of geese... every job, and thus price, is different. You'll need to talk to a pro in your area.
How much does woodpecker removal cost? Same thing, the size of the house matters. I've usually charged a few hundred to properly net a house to discourage and rehabituate a woodpecker
from pecking on a house.

Costs do vary by company. But there are 3 main principles:
1) Bird control is highly specialized work, with unique licensing and liability risks.
2) You usually do get what you pay for, and cheap companies tend to do bad work.
3) There is no one-price-fits-all. It doesn't work that way, every bird job is different.
Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses.
You don't want to over-pay of course. And most of all, you want someone who will do this complex work correctly. If you do it wrong the
first time, you'll just end up paying more later. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that birds cause.
Invest in your home and property by taking care of the bird problem correctly.
Customer Email Regarding Bird Problem:
David, Could you please tell me how do we keep the pigeon's off our roof top. This has just been happening this year due
to a new neighbor moving next door and this neighbor feed's them. But what can we put on our roof to stop the Pigeon's from using our home as a waiting spot for the food
to be sent out by the neighbor. Please help us if you can. and If there is wiring please let us know how much it will be and how much we will need on our home. Thank You I remain Carla.
First off, you can talk to your neighbor and try to discourage her from feeding the pigeons. Second, you can install needle strips or shock track on the
roof peak to prevent them from landing and roosting there. The cost of the job will depend on the amount of materials needed, but $10 per linear foot is a good estimate. A home
inspection is needed to get a true cost estimate.
