Getting Rid of Blackbirds
There are around 10 species of blackbirds in the United States. The most common blackbirds are the Brewer's, Redwinged, and rusty. Blackbirds are omnivorous and eat a variety of seeds, grains, and insects. They commonly forage for ripening corn, sunflowers, citrus fruits, rice, beetles, and earworms. As such, farmlands and lawns with gardens make especially favorable nesting sites.
Common Blackbird Problems
- They feed in large flocks, causing destruction to large fields of crops.
- Blackbird droppings leave behind large amounts of droppings, often containing harmful bacteria.
Trapping and Removal
Various species of blackbirds become aggressive when they feel their nests are in danger. Red-winged blackbirds, for example, will attack horses and even people they feel threaten their territory. As such, individuals should not attempt to approach populations of blackbirds. Instead, contact our Critter Control technicians who have the tools and training to remove the birds in the safest way possible.
