Netting for bird removal is one of the most common humane methods for removing birds that have nested in air ducts, vents or other ventilation equipment. Netting allows birds to be caught alive so they can be relocated away from the property without harm. This helps avoid damaging expensive HVAC components or spreading disease like could occur if birds were killed in place.

Professional wildlife control experts use specialized bird netting and capturing equipment for netting birds. Fine-mesh nets are placed over areas where birds have access or are known to roost. The nets blend into the surroundings, allowing birds to enter but making them invisible so the birds do not realize a net is there until they fly into it.

Once birds are caught in the net,netting for bird removal, the net is quickly and carefully collapsed around the birds to ensure they remain trapped within without injury. Some birds may require booking, or temporarily immobilizing their legs, to make them easier to handle. Experts then relocate the birds at least 5 miles away from the capture site to prevent them from trying to return.


Some key benefits of netting for bird removal include:

• Humane and harmless.

By netting rather than killing birds, their lives are spared and they suffer no harm. They are simply removed from the unwanted location. This avoids damaging expensive HVAC components or creating health hazards like disease could if the birds were injured or killed.

• Prevents return.

Properly relocating netted birds at least 5 miles from the capture site helps ensure they do not try to return to their former nesting location. Most birds are strongly territorial and will not fly back if there are no familiar landmarks.

• Provides live removal.

Unlike some deterrents that may eventually seem insignificant to birds, netting actually and directly removes the birds from the space. There is no risk of the birds eventually getting used to or ignoring the deterrents, allowing them to remain nesting. They are physically taken from the location.

• Allows selective removal. Experts can choose which birds to remove and which to leave depending on the specific situation. Not all birds or nests may need to be removed, so netting provides flexibility and control over how comprehensive the removal is. Some birds/nests can sometimes be humanely evicted without harm rather than captured and relocated.

• Prevents bird droppings, nests and damage. By removing birds and any nests they have built, ongoing buildup of droppings, nesting materials and damage to equipment is prevented. What has already accumulated is also removed to avoid health, cleanup and repair costs.

• Provides peace of mind. Knowing birds have been humanely and professionally removed provides confidence that they will not return to cause further problems. There is no risk of them damaging expensive HVAC components, spreading disease or creating a messy, undesirable situation.
