Birds

 

Though most appreciate birds as one of Mother Nature’s greatest gifts, birds can become a nuisance when they decide to take up residence on or near your home or building.

 

birdBirds carry and spread disease, and bird feces can corrode building materials. The build-up of droppings or nesting materials is not only unsightly, but can also host parasites like bird mites. If birds are allowed to inhabit an area long enough, they will persistently defend it as their territory.  It’s important to take a proactive approach when dealing with pest birds at your home or business. In the long run, it can save you time and money.

 

Health Risks
Birds, bird droppings, and nesting materials can carry over 60 different fungal, bacterial, and viral diseases that can be passed to humans and animals.  Birds and bird nests can also host parasites and mites.

 

Property Damage
Bird droppings are highly acidic and can corrode paint and some building materials including steel, wood, concrete, tile and shingles. Bird Droppings can also corrode and discolour fabrics like canvas. Removing these materials can be timely and expensive. The longer bird droppings are left on a surface, the greater damage they can cause and the more difficult it will be to remove.

 

Safety Hazard
In late 2007, a New York City doorman was awarded $6 million dollars from the New York Department of Transportation, after he slipped on pigeon droppings in a subway terminal. Beyond the health issues of constantly being exposed to bird droppings or nests, the droppings themselves can pose a risk, should anyone slip on them.

 

Company Image
The build-up of bird droppings on a home is not only a health risk; it is unsightly and may inspire complaints from neighbors or homeowner associations. On businesses, bird droppings can ruin signs and store fronts and dissuade potential clients from entering. A sign or building is a physical representation of the business. If they are soiled with bird droppings and look sloppy, many customers will assume that it translates to the business practices as well.
