WHY IS REMOVING BIRDS FROM DRYER VENTS SO IMPORTANT?

Among several things that happen when a mating pair of starlings chooses to nest and lay eggs inside your vent opening, the following are nearly inevitable:

  • Bird mites
  • Fire hazards
  • Droppings

Removing birds from dryer vents is crucial because many of them are covered with tiny bugs called bird mites. These bugs survive off of the blood of both babies and adult starlings. When the birds leave the nest or the mite population grows too large, it typically migrates into the home in search of new hosts.

Starlings build large and messy nests with twigs, grass, and leaves. Often enough, their nests grow so large they can fill an entire garbage bag. Such nests block air flow and trap heat, causing fan motors and dryers to overheat. At that point, the dry nest material can easily act as a fire accelerant.

WHY BIRDS CHOOSE DRYER VENTS TO NEST?

In urban areas where trees are in fewer supply, starlings have had to adapt their nesting habits. As part of that adaptation, they seem to be particularly fond of vent openings found on the sides of houses. Although these openings serve to exhaust indoor appliances like dryers, kitchen and bathroom fans, they offer similar nesting conditions to these birds, which results in the need for bird removal services.
