Grand Island resumes treatment of starling problem
It's that time of the year again for a Central Nebraska city to address a growing bird problem.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is spreading DRC 1339. It's a poison to help reduce the starling population.
The chemical only affects the birds. No other animals will be hurt if they ingest the chemical.
The city of Grand Island says the birds should die within 24 to 36 hours after consuming the treated feed.
If you do find one of the dead bird on your property, wear gloves and dispose of the birds in trash cans.
The city of Grand Island started addressing this problem with annual treatments in 2005.
