Vulture Removal

Vulture Removal and Control

Vultures are majestic, but they aren’t so beautiful when you see them hovering around your property. The US is home to different types of vultures. Black vultures and turkey vultures are active during the day, looking for prey in kettles.

Vultures are predatory animals and endanger your pets and even small children. These birds also disregard human territory and may damage your rooftop, caulking, and other surfaces. In addition, vulture droppings often carry parasites, bacteria, and fungal agents, bringing in diseases.

Vultures will sometimes nest on roofs. Its strong and flat structure makes it viable for vultures. It also allows the vultures to have a better sighting of prey.

Unfortunately, these birds will not hesitate to tear up roofing materials to create their nests. Wilkins Wildlife starts with a winged life inspection to confirm the presence of vultures. Next, the procedure involves scanning your rooftop or attic for signs of vulture inhabitation.

Live Trapping for Vulture Removal

Before learning to eliminate black vultures, you must understand that you cannot do it without a professional. It’s illegal to trap, remove, or kill a vulture based on the Migratory Bird Treaty Act without a special license. Therefore, you must contact a professional if there are vultures on your property.

Wilkins Wildlife utilizes live traps to capture and transfer vultures to suitable habitats.


Wilkins Wildlife offers wildlife exclusion services to prevent these scavengers from returning. This allows us to secure areas that give them access to your property.

Our experts will install an anti-bird shock track on ridgelines to deter vultures from roosting in your space. The shock track is a low-profile bird deterrent system applied to the roof’s ledge. Installing nets or using overhead monofilament grid lines are good options, too!

Return Prevention

As a homeowner, you can perform basic procedures to prevent vultures from returning.

What do vultures eat?

Apart from dead animals, they feed on small prey, such as insects, lizards, and rodents.

To prevent their return, remove all food sources from your property.

Search for dead animals in your yard. If you find any, have them disposed of right away.

Remove nest sites on your roof if possible. Get any damage repaired before it gets worse.

If vultures are a recurring problem on your property, you may have an underlying pest problem.

Check for signs of rodent droppings or nests around your property.
