Like House Sparrows, dealing with infestations of Starlings 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) before we can potentially take any action from a pest control perspective.
Starlings can develop huge flock and often nest in loft spaces and roof voids. This can be inconvenient to the owner of the building because of the noise, mess, and smell. Because of Nature England’s policies regarding the protection of Starlings, in the majority of cases we will be required to leave them as they are.
However, we are able to speak to them and offer our professional opinion on your infestation so it’s still worth giving our team a call on 01444 811 916.
