Most Common Reasons for Bird Control
Health Risk - West Nile, Salmonella, Lyme disease, histoplasmosis, and meningitis are just 5 out of the 60 dangerous diseases exposed to humans through bird droppings. The West Nile virus alone has killed hundreds of people in the US since 2001. Bird droppings and their nesting materials hold parasites which pose serious threats to the people around them.
Parasites - Flies, rodents and bird mites are all attracted to the bird's droppings and their nests.
Damage - Birds have acid in their dropping which can easily eat through roofs, paint and even some metals. Birds cause millions of dollars in damages each year to buildings and homes.
Image - Facility's that have a bird problem send a negative image. Birds on roofs, signs, and ledges tend to lead the public to believe that the store or facility is dirty and possibly unsafe.
Maintenance Cost - The clean up of birds droppings and nests on a regular basis can easily turn into thousands of dollars.
Inventory Damage and Loss - Birds are scavengers and can easily ruin and destroy crops, vineyards and fish farms. Birds that perch above certain storage areas leave their dropping on packages and even food products.
Clogged Drains - Bird droppings can quickly clog drains. During heavy rains, water can accumulate on the roof and cause disaster.
Droppings on the Ground - When walked on, disease-bearing droppings can be tracked inside buildings and homes.
Noise - Birds tend to be noisy. A nuisance to people around them, especially in the early morning hours.
