Birds are not typically considered to be “pests” or “wildlife” that need to be controlled or removed, but bird exclusion needs are common in both residential and commercial settings.
Birds cause tens of millions of dollars’ worth of damage annually in the United States. Birds are known to damage buildings, vehicles, roofs, machinery, ventilation systems and more. Damage is typically caused by bird droppings or nests.
Bird droppings are extremely acidic, and can corrode various materials including tar-based roofing materials. This corrosion can cause leaks and even collapse.
Some birds, including pigeons, sparrows and starlings, build nests in rain gutters and drains. These nests can block draining systems, leading to standing water and potential roof collapse. Nesting materials are also flammable – if birds build their nests inside electric signage or machinery, the risk of fire increases significantly.
Birds are known to have more than 40 types of parasites and can host more than 60 types of infectious diseases. They can easily spread disease because they travel across great distances. While most humans don’t interact with birds often, pigeons, starlings and sparrows are common in urban areas and can pose health risks to people.
· Food and water sources can be contaminated by bird feces, causing food poisoning and other illnesses
· Fecal dust from bird droppings can be inhaled, causing flu-like symptoms
· Direct contact with bird feces in an open wound or cut can cause infection
· Birds can carry parasites like fleas, ticks and mites. If nuisance birds aren’t removed properly, these parasites could be left behind and may seek a new, human host.
