  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Maryland's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Maryland's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Prince George's county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Bowie animal control for wildlife issues.

Bowie Wildlife Removal Tip: What equipment is needed to exclude a pigeon?

There are various ways of excluding pigeons from your home, they most sure- fire way being keeping them out completely. This entails that you close all available points of entry.

There are also many products on the market that promises to help you keep pigeons out of your property. Some have proven to be a complete waste of money, or even fraudulent. To ensure that you do not get caught buying snake oil, always read the product reviews on a reputable source.

Here are some things that have been tried and tested

1. Bird spikes or gutter spikes. These spikes are fixed to any place where you think that the pigeons might land; they resemble nails sticking up at an angle. The theory behind this is that the birds will be unable to land on it.
2. A slinky. The old metal slinky, that you played with as a child, can also serve as an inexpensive and easy to use deterrent. Stretch the slinky and affix it to the wall where you find that there is a lot of bird excrement, this will indicate that it is a place they frequent. The slinky provides an unstable surface on which to land, this will prevent the birds from perching on it and they will fly off.
3. Bird wire. This is a low voltage wire that will emit a shock wave when birds land on it.
4. Triangular wooden block. An angular block can be affixed to a windowsill or any surface that allows a position for birds to perch. It forms a slope on which the birds cannot land.
5. Traps. Traps can be set in areas where birds frequently congregate; the birds will end up in a mesh cage, which can then be relocated.
6. Screens or mesh nets. These can be used to close up large openings, like sliding door entrances. It will keep the birds out, while still allowing fresh air to circulate.
7. Bird blaster. These machines emit a blast of highly pressurized air that will scare birds away.
8. Bird hazers. These machines work similarly to the bird blaster, but they spray a fine mist of water to deter birds.
9. Plastic owl. The life-sized plastic owl is supposedly seen as a predator and this will scare the birds away.
10. Optical gel. This gel is applied to spots that get sunlight; they then reflect the sun and birds are scared away as the approach.
11. Daddi long legs. This device looks like a sprinkler head that spins around, it keeps birds from landing.
12. Scarecrow. Some of these are motion activated; they will then move or squirt water at the birds in an effort to scare them off.
13. Chimney cowls. These are mesh cages that fit inside your chimney pot, allowing smoke to escape without allowing birds to enter.
