Sparrows are small, common birds that are often found in and around buildings. They are known for building nests, which can cause damage to the structure of the building. Sparrows can build their nests in gutters, vents, and other areas, which can lead to clogs and other problems. Sparrows can also carry diseases, such as avian flu, which can be transmitted to humans.
Pigeons are one of the most common pest birds and can be found in cities and towns. They are known for their droppings, which can damage buildings, statues, and other structures. Pigeon droppings are acidic and can corrode building materials such as stone, metal, and wood. Pigeon droppings can also pose a health hazard as they can contain harmful bacteria and fungi that can cause respiratory problems in humans.
Starlings are known for their ability to form large flocks and can be a nuisance in urban and rural areas. They can cause damage to crops, gardens, and fruit trees by eating and pecking at the fruit. Starlings can also create a lot of noise and droppings, which can be a problem for homeowners and businesses.
Seagulls, although commonly associated with coastal areas, can also be a nuisance in Toronto and the GTA. They are highly adaptable and opportunistic, often scavenging for food scraps and creating messes on rooftops, parking lots, and outdoor seating areas. Professional bird control services like ours can deploy strategies such as bird netting, spikes, and other deterrents to deter seagulls and protect your property from their activities.

Before and After
We offer residential, commercial, and industrial bird control services for pigeons, sparrows, woodpeckers, starlings, and other bird species. Our exclusion services include netting, spikes, removal and cleanup, and deterrents.
The starting price is $249 plus tax. There are multiple elements that could increase the price, like height, safety, the size of the area affected, and sometimes bird species.
Exclusion with netting is always the ultimate solution. Depending on what kinds of birds they are and where they are located, the management plan may change slightly.
Bird removal and exclusion take from 30 minutes to a couple of days, depending on the level of service and size of the area affected.
Icon Bird only uses humane methods for bird management, and our services do not harm the birds.
Depending on the situation, the application would be different. For example, if a bird has made its way into a vent, we could fix the issue and provide a lifetime warranty. However, if birds are sitting or nesting on a roof or the edges, we will install bird spikes or OptiCA gel with a 1-year warranty. After one year, a maintenance plan would be offered to maintain the coverage.
We use multiple different deterrents like OptiCA gel, bird spikes, wire mesh, netting, and bird shock. Other deterrents with colourful names like bird slide, bird wire, daddy long legs, eagle eye, and bird skip are also used in specific situations.
Repeat bird infestations can be avoided by applying exclusion services like netting, spikes, etc., plus our maintenance service.
If your property is infested by birds, you will see either bird droppings, nesting materials, or the birds themselves. Icon Bird is available to perform an inspection if you are not sure if an infestation has occurred. Preventative measures can also be discussed to make sure that you won’t have a problem with birds in the future.
Yes, birds can carry ectoparasites on their bodies, and their guana (droppings) are some of the most dangerous and infested substances that can plague a property owner.
