Keep Birds Away From Your AC
Spring is finally here! Flowers are blooming and birds begin their hunt for a place to nest.
Certain species such as sparrows and starlings tend to occupy places that they find suitable for their new home. They usually target vents like the dryer, stove, and bathroom exhausts found on the side of a house.
