Facility Architects Protect Buildings From Pest Birds
The best time to plan & implement a bird management program is in the early design stages of a project. A well planned program can mitigate unwanted birds without taking away from the architect’s desired aesthetics. This preventative approach is extremely effective & delivers long-term results, minimizing building maintenance costs & liability. Your clients will appreciate your attention to their bottom line.
The Importance of Architectural Bird Control
Bird control solutions should meet and fit in with construction specifications, especially when it comes to measurements and building materials. It’s also crucial to keep in mind the appropriate spacing of bird control products in relation to the structure. In general, bird control methods should minimally impact the overall appearance of the building.
The Effects of Unmanaged Birds & Pest Animals
If left unmanaged, birds and other pest animals in the construction site can be harmed. For example, they can be hurt by fire hazards and structural damage. Additionally, they can cause unsafe and unhealthy work conditions for employees: Wet bird droppings can create slip-and-fall hazards. Pest birds can also completely halt construction if a protected species nests in a critical area, as it is illegal to remove active nests from migratory birds. Pest birds even carry many transmittable diseases. For these reasons, pest control before construction is essential.
