Signs Of A Bird Problem
Birds become pests when they nest on buildings. Their droppings, noise and defense of nest sites makes them a health and safety risk.
Live Birds: Unlike other pests which may go unnoticed, having a bird problem is immediately visible, particularly rooftops, ledges and windowsills.
Sound: Young birds chirping and crying constantly
Droppings: A high congregation of birds will produce a substantial amount of droppings, soon amounting to an eye sore
Commercial Problems Arising From A Birds
Diseases: Firmly established as vermin, birds through their droppings have the ability to spread a number of different disease. The can include salmonella and ornithosis, both of which could disrupt staff attendance and performance
Business Reputation: Particularly applicable to pigeons with the negative connotations they have. A company’s reputation could suffer if a bird problem is left untreated
Insect Carriers: Their mobility means that birds are perfect in aiding the transporting of insects such as fleas and bed bugs from one place to another. This has the possibility of adding another pest that requires treatment, raising overall costs
Damage: Said to be lucky, but bird droppings do have the ability to cause some serious and permanent damage. Whether it is rooftops, walkways or side of buildings, the strong salt and ammonia content results in bird droppings being corrosive, and the ability to hasten the rust. In extreme circumstances they can even lead to structural damage.
