Getting Rid of Starlings
In the 1890s, approximately 100 starlings were introduced to New York as an invasive species. Since then, the bird's numbers have soared over 200 million and they can be found from Alaska to Mexico. Starlings are adaptable, resilient, and intelligent, making them a nuisance.
Common Starling Problems
- They destroy agriculture sites with their heavy appetite for berries and other fruits.
- Their droppings are odorous and contribute to the spread of the respiratory disease histoplasmosis.
- When they gather in particularly large numbers, starling flocks riddle golf courses, lawns, and parks with holes while they forage, damaging costly landscaping.
Trapping and Removal
Starlings become aggressive when they feel threatened, and approaching them is unnecessarily dangerous. If flocks of the pest bird are causing problems, Critter Control technicians should be called to eradicate infestations. Industry tools and extensive training keep our specialists safe throughout the removal process.
