Bird Removal Solutions in Mississauga, Ontario
It goes without saying that birds play an essential role in our natural environments. They keep ecosystems in balance and contribute to our enjoyment of the outdoors. They can also become destructive pests. Their adaptability and sheer numbers in urban areas like Toronto, Mississauga and Scarborough means we encounter them daily. In fact, birds cause millions of dollars in property damage annually to both homes and businesses. Human interaction with birds can even result in serious health concerns.
Common Bird Problems in the Toronto Area
Birds become pests when they nest in and around our properties. At ICE, we have experience removing and controlling many types of birds including: pigeons, Canada Geese, seagulls, woodpeckers, sparrows and starlings. Some of the more typical nesting sites to watch for include exhaust vents leading to the bathroom or kitchen, soffits and roof lines leading directly into the attic. Problems that can be caused by birds in or around a facility include:
- Roof and structural damage
- Blocked ventilation systems
- Food contamination
- Damage to automobile finishes
Urban birds can also create many health issues, including:
- Diseases and bacteria present in bird droppings and nests such as salmonella and E.coli
- ‘Blood feeding insects’ found in bird nests such as mites, fleas, ticks and lice

Laws Protecting Canada Geese & Their Impact on Bird Removal
The Canada Geese are a migratory bird, protected under Canadian law by the Migratory Birds Convention Act. The Canadian Wildlife Service, part of Environment Canada, manages wildlife matters that are the responsibility of the federal government, including protection and management of migratory birds. ICE works in conjunction with the Canadian Wildlife Service to ensure the safe removal in accordance to these laws. Environment Canada has produced this PDF with more information on how farmers and land owners can mitigate the settling of Canada Geese on their property.
