If you’ve got a problem with pesky birds invading your commercial property or your home, you’re bound to have bigger problems sooner rather than later. And while it’s true that many people don’t often think of birds as a “pest control” issue, the trouble a flock of birds can bring most certainly is.
Here’s a look at why bird pest control is important, and how Bain Pest Control can help alleviate any concerns you might have.
Bird Pest Control Issues
For the most part, when we’re talking about birds that become pests, we’re referring to pigeons, seagulls, and other similar birds that have no issue taking up residence in your home or building, or right outside if there’s something that attracts them. As these birds begin to nest, there can very suddenly be an overwhelming number of birds – especially if they’re inside – which is a nuisance unto itself. But it’s the other issues these birds bring with them that are the biggest problems.
Chief among these concerns are the diseases birds like pigeons and seagulls often carry. Some common diseases they carry include pigeon ornithosis, encephalitis, Newcastle disease, Histoplasmosis, and more. One of the more unpalatable ways birds spread these diseases is through droppings, which can come in waves and cover a significant area.
In addition to the disease the droppings bring, the makeup of bird droppings also can ruin metal (like on cars and buildings) and pavement.
But beyond the detrimental effects of their droppings and presence, birds also often carry small pests and insects that are just as harmful to your health and surrounds as well. Common bugs that latch on to birds include fleas, ticks, and mites, all of which can carry diseases themselves.
