COMMON PROBLEMS WITH CHIMNEY SWIFTS

Many houses nowadays are built with chimneys. Either with a metal flue pipes or clay lines. The metal flue pipes can be death traps to the protected species. Chimney Swifts cannot grip on the metal and can fall into the fireplace. The nests of these birds are very small and they are not a fire hazard.

FEDERAL REGULATIONS ON PROTECTED ANIMALS

Chimney Swifts can be annoying when the young hatch. Many residents complain of the chirping noises of hungry birds. The Humane Society of the United States prohibits the removal of the protected species. We cannot come and remove Chimney Swifts from your chimney. Other animals and birds can be removed safely. You should always hire a professional to inspect the chimney if you hear noises or believe there is an animal in the chimney.

Although some species are protected, there are many solutions to safely removing them and preventing them from returning to nest in your chimney.

After the young have left the nest in the fall it is recommended that you call a chimney sweep expert or animal control to remove the nests and install a chimney cage, cap or cowl. This will prevent any animals from entering and nesting in the chimney pots.
