Birds make their way into our attics, one of the last places you want them. Their sounds can be quite an annoyance, but beyond that, they can wreak havoc in your attic while gathering materials for their nests. They also bring other items like outdoor sticks as they continue to assemble your attic materials, such as electrical wiring and insulation.
