Can you remove a bird nest in an exhaust vent?

Question: We have a bird nest in our exhaust vent. They came through by opening the flaps from the outside. It is on the first floor and is the exhaust fan for our bathroom. Can you guys remove them? If so, how much?

ANSWER: Bird work is a specialized service. The cost is determined by what the extent of the labor is. Bird nests may have bird mites them. They could also have soft ticks, and we know it does have bird droppings. All of these present a health hazard.

Call your local Orkin Branch Office and consult with them as to the possibility of removing the nest from your home and providing you with a solution for any bird control problems you may be experiencing.
