Bird Problems & Solutions

Mud Swallows Under Eaves


Bird Activity

Mud swallows build nests in inverted corners where a vertical and horizontal surface meet, typically under the soffit of a house. 

Why are birds there?

Swallows migrate north in the spring, and return to the same spot where they nested in the prior year. They build sturdy nests from mud. Nests and birds are protected, so they cannot be destroyed until the birds have migrated south.

Considerations when Choosing Bird Deterrents

The work should be completed well before the birds start to return in the spring.

Be Careful

The birds and nests are protected. They occasionally defeat systems be moving further down the building. The goal should be to exclude them from the shaded areas.
