Gas stations, food stores or building supply such as Home Depot, in which birds and pigeons have really befowled the place. They also love to roost on signs at shopping plazas, and they sure make a real mess of your sidewalk. They can also be noisy and unsightly, and lower the cleanliness and value of your property.
Sparrows and Starlings often choose to nest in buildings. They can be a nuisance in numbers, and bring along quite a bit of nesting material, which in the right (wrong) spot can lead to fire hazard or clogged drain pipes. The uric acid in their droppings can lead to structural damage' and also pose a health risk. They can carry a number of parasites, like all birds.
Pigeon and Bird Damage Prevention:
Pigeons are probably the most common nuisance bird. Everyone knows that pigeons have adapted to life in the city, and they seem to be everywhere in urban environments. Unfortunately, the bird lovers of the world feed them, and they have developed a dependence upon people, thus reinforcing their dependency upon urban areas. They roost on signs, ledges, almost anywhere, and they bring nesting material and leave droppings everywhere. Pigeons are swimming with filth and disease, as everyone knows. Pigeons can carry or transmit: encephalitis, histoplasmosis, Newcastle disease, pigeon ornithosis, cryptococcosis, pigeon coccidiosis, toxoplasmosis, pseudo-tuberculosis, and salmonella food poisoning. Pigeons can carry fleas, ticks, mites, and other parasites.
Do you know that birds and their droppings can carry more than 60 diseases that can invade and infect humans?
How do birds and droppings cause danger to thee? Let me count the ways.
Unhealthy environment. Do you know that birds and their droppings can carry more than 60 diseases that can invade and infect humans? You've heard of salmonella and bed bugs, but add to this list tongue-twisters such as histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis. Note that some diseases spread through droppings can even be fatal.
Filth. Not only are droppings unsightly and unappealing, but also they imply low-quality conditions. A dirty, dropping-laden scene can negatively impact well-being, morale and productivity.
Lawsuit potential. Dropping-laden premises are begging for a slip-and-fall injury or an occupational disease lawsuit, not to mention air-quality issues. Haven't insurance rates risen high enough?
Droppings cost money and time. Couldn't employees be doing something more productive than cleaning up after birds?
Property devaluation. Birds are destructive. Their droppings deface rooftops, walls, equipment, and vehicles. The corrosive effect of bird excrement causes irreversible damage and shortens the life of vital structures.
