The House Sparrow is the #2 Urban Pest Bird. Introduced as a species to North America, the house sparrow quickly spread across the country due to its lack of natural enemies and its adaptive traits. A sparrow’s ability to nest in urban structures, eat urban scraps and a large breeding capacity are some of these adaptive traits.
House Sparrows are often a nuisance in manufacturing and food processing plants. Gutters and drainage pipes clogged with sparrow nests can backup and cause extensive water damage, and fires have been attributed to electrical shorts caused by machinery housing sparrow nests. And feces buildup can lead to structural damage from the uric acid in droppings, plus the bacteria, fungal agents and parasites in the feces also pose a health risk.
The most effective methods of sparrow control is removal, using traps and capture netting installed in the flight paths by certified personnel to capture these birds in enclosed areas. The best trap has an elevated second chamber that keeps the birds happy and so content that they actually sing, attracting others to the trap.
The trapping program should be combined with a nest removal program that will greatly reduce the population over time.
