Pigeons, Sparrows, Robins & Other Birds

Bird Control New YorkToo many birds at your New York home? At The Bug Stops Here, we use specialized pest control methods performed by our exterminator team to completely take care of the problem. The three most common types of birds found in New York are pigeons, sparrows, and robins. All three types of birds can quickly turn into a nuisance.


Pigeons are the most common type of bird in New York. Once introduced as a pet in the United States, pigeons quickly turned into a bother. Known to invade business, airports, historical landmarks, schools, and stadiums, pigeons are a typical sight to see throughout New York.

Pigeons are typically gray and black colored, live five years, and eat a variety of foods. Their basic diet used to consist of grains, with the occasional piece of fruit, but as pigeons learned to live in cities and crowded neighbors, it is not uncommon to see pigeons pecking out of garbage and eating whatever they can come by.

Pigeons can carry Pigeon Ornithosis (psittacosis), Encephalitis, Newcastle disease, Toxoplasmosis, Salmonella food poisoning and other diseases. Histoplasmosis, a fungal disease that can infect people, can be contracted when cleaning up dusty pigeon extract. Overall, pigeons can cause severe damage to both your health and property.

If your pigeon problem is getting out of hand, contact an exterminator specialist at The Bug Stops Here today.

House Sparrow

Do you have a problem with house sparrows invading the outside of New York home or business? The house sparrow has been known to infest manufacturing and food processing plants. Sparrow nests can clog up gutters and drainage pipes, which can lead to extensive water damage and electrical shortages.

The first step of The Bug Stops Here’s pest control process is for exterminator specialists to accurately identify the bird. House sparrow males have black throats and spots, while females have a brown chest with an eye-stripe. Their beaks are ideal for seed cracking, resulting in their diet consisting of seeds, grains, fruits, vegetables, human table scraps, and insects.

Houses sparrows are notoriously known to carry human diseases, which are extremely harmful for your health. Our exterminator specialists, located in New York, can treat the problem before it gets out of control.


Do you have a robin problem at your New York home or business? Our exterminator professionals are well prepared to help you with your robin infestation. Robins are known to roam in the countryside and are hazardous to crop growers. When the insect population gets low, robins, typically, bite the food. The food then becomes susceptible to fruit fly infestation and mold. To identify a robin properly, look for its gray-brown color and soft orange chest.

If pigeons, house sparrows, or robins have infested your New York home or business, contact The Bug Stops Here for quality pest control methods performed by a team of exterminator specialists.
