Swallow Control Products

Nixalite Swallow Control Products combine Premium bird spike Models S and H together to create an effective barrier against mud nest building birds.

Adult Swallows are about 7” long, stand 4” high and have a 13” wingspan. They weigh less than 1 ounce and vary in color between species. Females are less colorful. You can find Swallows feeding in open habitats such as fields, parks, marshes, meadows, ponds, and coastal waters. Their nests are often easy to spot under protected overhangs.

Barn Swallows lay 3 to 7 eggs in each brood and can hatch broods twice a year. Broods fledge in about 2 weeks. Both sexes construct the nest of mud pellets. If attached to a wall or beam, the nest is half-cup shaped. If on top of a surface, the nest forms a perfect small cup about 3” wide.

Impact on Human Health: As insect eaters, Barn Swallows are usually well tolerated. The birds often carry avian lice and bird mites. When nesting in colonies, their droppings and parasites can present a threat to human health.

Impact on Architecture: Swallow colonies can have hundreds of birds and mud nests. The sheer weight of these nests can collapse structures. If forcibly torn down, the residue that holds the nest together can damage the surface. Swallows can be particularly destructive when mass colonies nest under interstate or highway bridges that cross rivers.
