What are the signs of a Bird problem?
- Live Birds: Unlike other pests which may go unnoticed, having a bird problem is immediately visible, particularly rooftops, ledges and windowsills.
- Sound: Young birds chirping and crying constantly
- Droppings: A high congregation of birds will produce a substantial amount of droppings, soon amounting to an eye sore
Commercial problems arising from a Bird problem…
- Diseases: Firmly established as vermin, birds through their droppings have the ability to spread a number of different disease. The can include salmonella and ornithosis, both of which could disrupt staff attendance and performance
- Eye-sore /Reputation: Particularly applicable to pigeons with the negative connotations they have. A company’s reputation could suffer if a bird problem is left untreated
- Insect Carriers: Their mobility means that birds are perfect in aiding the transporting of insects such as fleas and bed bugs from one place to another. This has the possibility of adding another pest that requires treatment, raising overall costs
- Damage: Said to be lucky, but bird droppings do have the ability to cause some serious and permanent damage. Whether it is rooftops, walkways or side of buildings, the strong salt and ammonia content resuts in bird droppings being corrosive, and the ability to hasten the rust. In extreme circumstances they can even lead to structural damage.
