We offer a wide range of Swallow Pest Control, such as mud nest removal, mud nest cleanup and sanitizing,  netting, "bird slope" we can make the repairs to keep them from returning.  read below for more on Swallows and what we do. We offer Residential and Commercial Swallow control.


Swallow Bird Control

Swallows make mud nests that damage and deface the  eaves  and walls of residences, buildings, and bridges. This occurs when the build their mud nests. The soil and saliva come together to make an adobo type nest. The build up of feces will land on the wall, ground and anything nearby. Bird mites are yet another unsavory pest they bring with them. Once swallows leave, and no birds have returned to the nest for 3-4 weeks, it is time to remove them. The law states that the nests cannot be disturbed until after September 1st. Any nests left vacant will be soon be occupied by new tenants such as the common house sparrows.

In addition to leaving their mud nests, swallows also leave their parasites behind. Without hosts, these insects tend to move in to your home through open window by way of the screen etc. .  Swallow prevention is always recommended to keep you and your family safe.

Call today to rid your home or business of that pesky Swallow problem.  If you wait to long the swallows prevention window will be closed, and then you have to wait until they leave again.

No company will be able to legally remove the nests if it is occupied by swallows. We are not swallow exterminators, we make repairs once it is leagal to do so to keep them out.

It is a $10,000 fine and will not risk it.


Swallow Proofing

There are many swallow proofing products and techniques used to prevent swallows from nesting. The proofing is usually done after legal removal of the swallow's nest is finished.

Many pest control companies use netting, wire, and scare techniques. However many times this is installed incorrectly and will do no good. We offer a few different proofing techniques to effectively swallow proof a house such as: Bird B Gone products, swallow netting, bird slope, etc. We also color match everything we do as to not  visually change your homes exterior. With the proper use of swallow netting, we can keep them away for years to come. Bird gel and Bird Wire should never be used in swallow situations. As it is totally ineffective.

We are certified Bird B Gone Installers which means were know that every swallow issue may need to be handled differently.  And that one product doesn't suit all.

So for guaranteed swallow proofing, give Speedy Animal Control a call at (619) 370 - 2761 and get effective proofing without compromise.

One of the oldest, yet tried and true methods of  effective Swallow control products we use is called Swallow Netting. We can form it around anything and color match it to make it disappear.  Netting can be used under eaves to prevent roosting birds or nesting Swallows.

For the areas above windows we can use a product called Bird Slope. Bird Slope can be used upside down under eaves, above windows etc. to exclude the birds. Our technicians are Bird B Gone Certified and are well trained in the use of this products.

WE GUARANTEE OUR REPAIRS FOR TWO (2) YEARS.

WE GUARANTEE THAT THE SWALLOWS WILL NOT BUILD A NEST OVER OUR DETERRENTS. IF THEY DO WE WILL COME OUT AND FIX IT FOR FREE **

** Of course, all damage done from acts of God, vandalism, or negligence are not covered under this warranty.


Nest Removal and Decontamination

The removal of swallow nests must be timed accordingly to their migration departure. Since swallows are a protected species and hence so are their nests. Therefore the nests can never be removed until swallows have migrated south and vacated their nests.

Once the nests are vacant (typically after September 1st here in San Diego) birds must be gone for at least a week, it is safe to rid your home from the mud nest, the bird mites, and bird poop. The swallow nests harbor many parasites such as: ticks, fleas, bird mites. So prior to removal, decontaminations is always performed. After we have decontaminated the swallow nest or nests, we can begin to pry the nest of the wall/eave followed by sanitizing and washing either by hand or by pressure washer.

We install swallow proofing-swallow netting to keep them gone for years to come.

Swallow feces - fouling clean up

We first sanitize and decontaminate the bird feces then clean it up. After that we either hand wash or power wash depending on the situation. Power washing is not always recommended as it can ruin really old stucco, or damage aged wood siding.


Swallows , The Law, and why you should listen

Swallows and even their nests are fully protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, which makes it illegal to intentionally kill, injure or take any migratory bird. It is illegal to intentionally damage or destroy the nest, eggs, or young of a swallow while it is being built or in use. The Act allows fines or prison sentences for every bird, egg or nest destroyed.

It is a $10,000 fine.


Identification

swallowThe difference between barn swallows and cliff swallows is quite subtle. One way to tell is the type of nest they build. If the nest is made of big mud pellets and is gourd shaped it is a cliff swallow. If the nest is more like a cup shape with mud, feathers, and or straw it is a barn swallow. Both are slender, sleek birds that spend their spring and summers in North America. Swallows are very territorial and will return to the same nesting site over and over. Buildings, eaves and other structures often replace cliffs these days to build their distinctive mud pellet nests (see photo at left).

Swallows have brownish red faces and light colored bellies. Cliff swallows have squared off tails, but barn swallows have long forked tails (see photo to left). Young swallows have similar coloring, but are lighter in coloration.

Swallows are small birds with dark glossy backs, red throats, pale under parts and long distinctive tail streamers. They are extremely agile in flight and spend most of their time on the wing. They are widespread breeding birds in the Northern Hemisphere, migrating south in winter.

Recent declines due to loss of habitat quality in both their breeding and wintering grounds mean they are an Amber List species. Amber-list species are those with an unfavorable conservation status in Europe; those whose population or range has declined moderately in recent years; those whose population has declined historically but made a substantial recent recovery; rare breeders; and those with internationally important or localized populations.

Swallows feed on insects and spend a large part of each day in the air catching flies, beetles, and mosquitoes. Their long pointed wings give them great speed and maneuverability. Normally, swallows are not seen on the ground except when collecting mud for their nests which can be as far as 40 miles away.

The cliff swallow is 5 to 6 inches in length and is the only square-tailed swallow in California. In contrast, its long, deeply forked tail distinguishes the barn swallow. The cliff swallow is also recognized by its pale, orange-brown rump, white forehead, dark rust-colored throat, and steel blue crown and back.

These small, nimble birds enjoy special legal protection. Once they have laid their eggs in the nest, you can not disturb them. You must wait until they leave to remove the nests and then exclude them using bird netting, bird slope, or the appropriate product for your proofing solution.


Damage Caused by Swallows

Swallows are often a nuisance in suburban areas as they build their mud nests that damage and deface the outer walls and eaves of residences and office buildings. Swallow feces often end up on the sides of buildings and the ground below from the colony of birds in residence. Building owners report extra clean up costs and concern over slip and fall liability from swallow dropping buildup, plus an unclean, dirty company image.

The bacteria, fungal agents and parasites found in swallow droppings and nests can carry hosts with serious diseases, including histoplasmosis, encephalitis, salmonella, meningitis, toxoplasmosis and more.

Most bird problems occur in or under your eves, the top of your roof, or any other area they may deem safe to roost. Fouling (Feces from the bird) occurs where birds nest or roost. Apart from being unsightly, the acidic droppings can erode stonework resulting in costly long term damage. Gutters and drain pipes can become blocked causing flooding. Ladders and fire escapes can become coated with droppings, making them unsafe to use. Droppings can also cause havoc with AC units and electrical systems.
