Dealing with infestations of House Sparrows can be a little trickier than most pests. Due to declining numbers there are steps we have to take, such as discussing each individual case with Nature England (previously DEFRA), to determine if we can take action against your infestation.
House Sparrows used to be common pests, particularly in warehouses and food factories. They would frequently develop large flocks and contaminate food products with their droppings which was extremely damaging to the businesses involved. Because of Nature England’s policies regarding the protection of House Sparrows, in the majority of cases we will be required to leave them as they are.
However, we are able to speak to Nature England and offer our professional opinion on your infestation. It’s still worth giving our team a call on 01444 811 916 if you have House Sparrows nesting on your premises.
