When you have a six-year old daughter, getting rid of the birds nest in your garage is far from easy. Instead of just swatting it down and chasing its owner away like you would normally do, you’re asked to “not hurt the babies” and, “give me the nest I’ll be the mom”. Neither of which […]
I know it’s an irrational fear, but I’m very much afraid of the swallows on our house. Some people are afraid of heights, some people are afraid of water. I am afraid of birds. They call it ornithophobia, and apparently it’s pretty common. Some people are terrified of large birds of prey, but I […]
I have got to get some swallow control out here fast. My home’s pretty new, just about 4 years old. I did a lot of the work on the home myself, and was my own general contractor on the things I couldn’t or didn’t want to do, like the framing, concrete pouring, etc. The […]
I’m just a sweet, old tabby cat who wants to take naps in the soft grass in the backyard instead of worrying about how to get rid of swallows.

“What’re you whining about, now?” laughed […]
We’d been trying to get rid of swallows over the last couple of weeks. They were trying to build their nest right above our front door, and the mess was terrible. Bird droppings and bits of mud just littered our door step. So, we’d knock it down before they finished building the nest […]
“Hey there, Lila, you call for swallow removal, yet?” Emily asked her neighbor.
“What do you mean? Why would we want those pretty little birds removed?” Lila was a pretty brunette who loved animals a little too much, in Emily’s opinion. Emily liked her home pristine and cats, dogs, birds and turtles were […]
