Birds can be very damaging to your property. In fact, they create millions of dollars in damage every year. When they nest, they can create hazardous conditions that require a substantial amount of cleanup. Bird infestations not only create property damage, but health hazards, liability issues, and can even spread disease.
Diseases & Health Issues
When it comes to birds there are more than a few diseases to be worried about. In fact, birds and their droppings can carry over 60 different transmissible diseases. The problem can be particularly bad in residential areas, where these droppings can be more easily transferred to humans. Anytime someone steps into dropping puddles or onto dried droppings the risk of diseases being released into the air increases.
In addition to the diseases they carry, pest birds are also associated with over 50 different types of ectoparasites. These parasites can work their way onto humans and bite. Each parasite can give their host a variety of different symptoms.
Property Damage & Liability
Droppings are not only dangerous, but they are mess and never a good display for a business. The longer the birds nest and dirty the area the more difficult it will be to repair the damage and clean up. Bird droppings contain acidic substances that can corrode or stain when left for long periods of time. Bird droppings can even discolor paint, destroy awnings, and ruin electrical equipment. Bird’s nests can also create problems for you. Easily clogging rain gutters, vents, chimneys, or drains.
Along with the destructive nature, dropping buildup can also create a slippery surface. This can result in a number of liability issues for businesses.
