There are some species of birds that can create enormous problems for commercial and residential properties. The seasonal nesting of birds in a roof can result in a problem with bird mites, as birds carry lice and mites into the buildings, which can cause a health threat to humans. Mites can cause a severe skin irritation. Bird droppings can also be harmful to health as the droppings contain fungal organisms which when airborne can cause disease of the lungs. Salmonella can also be carried in bird droppings.
Birds cannot only have harmful health effects but can also deface property with their droppings. Commercial buildings with bird droppings all over railings, footpaths and windowsills are certainly not appealing to clients. Bird droppings can also be very slippery on concrete floors and pathways, making it hazardous to walk on. Common nesting areas for pest birds include exposed ledges, awnings, air-conditioning units and windowsills.
Pest bird issues are generally not a problem that will fix itself. As birds find themselves warm nesting areas and if left to roost in these areas the problem can quickly escalate. Birds need to be deterred from these areas as the longer they are left the harder it is to solve the problem.
