Many birds are natural pest managers. Birds like swifts and swallows eat bugs and mosquitos. Owls and raptors eat mice and small rodents.

Rat poison, sticky traps, and other pest management techniques can harm birds.

Mice poisoned by rodenticide can be eaten by birds of prey, who then ingest the poison.

Small birds can get caught and die in glue/sticky insect traps.

For pest management, please look for humane and non-damaging options of control.
