5 ways to attract pest birds (even though you aren’t trying) to your Houston property include:

  1. Providing easy water sources. Having fountains and other man-made water features in front of your business will most certainly attract birds to your property.
  2. Having a lot of trees, shrubs, flowers, and other landscaping located directly next to your building. Although it looks nice, it can attract birds and many other types of damaging pests to your property.
  3. Trash receptacles that are located near your building that are not equipped with tight fitting lids. Many birds and other pests will use unsecured trash as an easy food source.
