Common Starling Problems
As an invasive species, starlings cause their fair share of destruction. Some of the major issues that are caused include:
- Damage to fruit crops.
- Trouble on farms where livestock is kept by stealing food and spreading diseases.
- Damage to landscape when they gather in flocks of large numbers.
- Their droppings are odorous and contribute to the spread of respiratory disease histoplasmosis.
Starlings become aggressive when they feel threatened, and approaching them is unnecessarily dangerous. If there happens to be a flock of starlings causing you issues, call Critter Control technicians to eradicate infestations. Cutting-edge industry tools and extensive training keep our specialists and the birds safe throughout the removal process.
