Step 2: How To Inspect For Crows?

Let us begin by conducting a thorough inspection of your premises. Inspect rain gutters, eaves, soffits, fascias, vents, and chimneys for potential pest presence.

In your yard or property, pests tend to congregate near wooded areas, streams, and rivers, as well as orchards and parks.

We specialize in locating and addressing the presence of Crows and their nests. Our team of expert pest control technicians have observed the construction of nests by these pesky creatures.

These nests are meticulously crafted using sticks, twigs, and stems, and may even be adorned with bark, feathers, grass, and string.

It is worth noting that these nests are typically located at heights ranging from 10 to 60 feet above the ground. During the winter, they tend to gather in significant quantities and form nests nearby.

Utilize binoculars to meticulously observe their flight patterns and identify their preferred perching or nesting locations.

Once you have identified the locations where they perch or nest, this is where our team will administer the necessary pest control measures.
