Gentle bird capture: our specialty

Birds sometimes enter through the chimney hole and end up in the hearth and then in the house. Sometimes they make a nest in the chimney itself or on the edges of your roof. They can also enter the attic or attic through air vents or soffits, and nest there.


No matter your situation, and no matter the type of bird (starling, pigeon or any other type of bird), our technicians will know how to catch it gently, and then set it free. Even if the bird capture must be done at height, our specialists have the necessary equipment to safely access where they are.

Our bird capture techniques are very simple. We are used to catching birds in all kinds of contexts and situations. We know their reactions and know how to approach them gently.

To capture birds, we first try to see if it would be possible to get the bird out naturally, through a window or a door. If necessary, we can use a net, which is very effective in catching birds.

Exterminating birds is prohibited and we are not allowed to do so, even if we are professional exterminators. We have to release them outside (with their eggs or young if we find a nest). The government is strict about this. However, there are a number of things we can do to prevent the bird (or birds) from returning to your home.

To prevent another bird entry through the chimney or into your attic, we can, if you wish, carry out various interventions to ensure that the possible entries are properly blocked:

– Put wire mesh on the chimneys;
– Repair soffits that allow birds to sneak into your attic;
– Replace the ventilation hatches;
– Caulk the holes and cracks that allow birds to enter your home.

Nova Extermination has a license from the Régie du Bâtiment du Québec (RBQ: 5734-75930-01) as well as from the CNESST to carry out repair work on soffits, change of ventilation hatches, installation of grilles around chimneys. as well as caulking. Our company is also protected by liability insurance.

Know birds better

Learning more about birds will give you a better understanding of how dangerous they are and the damage they can cause to your home. As an exterminator on the South Shore of Montreal, we know how to solve your pigeon, starling or other bird problem quickly and without harming them.

Quebec has over 470 species of birds. Many of them are not harmful and do not pose any danger to humans.

Starlings have a breeding season that begins in early April and ends in June. Usually, this species of bird lays 3 to 4 eggs and the baby birds will be ready for flight 3 to 4 weeks.

The pigeon is a well-known urban bird, having long been domesticated by humans for its loyal courier services. Be careful because they are sometimes confused with the turtledove since they have similar physical features.

Not being migratory birds, the pigeon will stay all the year in the same area and will stay all its life with the same companion since the pigeon is monogamous.

An exterminator must recognize and differentiate between harmful bird species in Quebec. Since the birds are protected, we will use environmentally friendly means to resolve the problem.
