Reasons why bird control?
- Birds, bird droppings and nesting materials carry transmittable diseases and ectoparasites
- Bird droppings are highly acidic and can stain and corrode building materials
- Bird nests can clog drains and pose a fire risk near lighting or other features
- Birds nests can host bird mites
- Bird droppings can contaminate standing bodies of water such as pools, spas and lake shore areas
- Pest bird such as crows and pigeons may be driving away desirable song birds from your property
- Birds can wreak havoc on backyard gardens and crops
They longer birds are allowed to nest or roost in unwanted area; the harder it will be to get them to leave. If birds are allowed to inhabit an area long enough, they will persistently defend it as their territory. It’s important to take a proactive approach when dealing with pest birds. In the long run, it can save you time and money.
Devaluation of Property
Bird droppings and nests are an unattractive feature for homes and businesses. If birds are allowed to nest at a property for an extended period of time, the presence of their nests, possible diseases and ecto-parasites and bird droppings can devalue a property and have the neighbors complaining.
Health Risk with Pest Birds
Birds, bird droppings and nesting materials can carry 60 different diseases and ectoparasites that can be passed to humans and animals. If dried bird droppings are found near ventilation systems, they can travel through buildings potentially infecting inhabitants.
Examples of transmissible bird diseases associated with pigeons, geese, starling and house sparrows:
- Histoplasmosis is a respiratory disease that may be fatal. It results from a fungus growing in dried bird droppings.
- Candidiasis is a yeast or fungus infection spread by pigeons. The disease affects the skin, the mouth, the respiratory system, the intestines and the urogenital tract, especially the vagina. It is a growing problem for women, causing itching, pain and discharge.
- Cryptococcosis is caused by yeast found in the intestinal tract of pigeons and starlings. The illness often begins as a pulmonary disease and may later affect the central nervous system. Since attics, cupolas, ledges, schools, offices, warehouses, mills, barns, park buildings, signs, etc. are typical roosting and nesting sites, the fungus is apt to found in these areas.
- Salmonellosis often occurs as “food poisoning” and can be traced to pigeons, starlings and sparrows. The disease bacteria are found in bird droppings; dust from droppings can be sucked through ventilators and air conditioners, contaminating food and cooking surfaces in restaurants, homes and food processing plants.
A few examples of ectoparasites include:
- Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) may consume up to five times their own weight in blood drawn from hosts which include humans and some domestic animals. In any extreme condition, victims may become weak and anemic. Pigeons, starlings and house sparrows are known to carry bed bugs.
- Chicken mites (Dermanyssus gallinae) are known carriers of encephalitis and may also cause fowl mite dermatitis and acariasis. While they subsist on blood drawn from a variety of birds, they may also attack humans. They have been found on pigeons, starlings and house sparrows.
- Yellow mealworms (Tenebrio molitor), perhaps the most common beetle parasites of people in the United States, live in pigeon nests. It is found in grain or grain products, often winding up in breakfast cereals, and may cause intestinal canthariasis and hymenolespiasis.
- West Nile Virus while West Nile is technically not transmitted to humans from birds, humans can get infected by the bite of a mosquito who has bitten an infected bird. The obvious lesson is that the fewer birds there are in any given area, the better. This translates into a smaller chance of an infected bird in that area, a smaller chance of a mosquito biting an infected bird and then biting a human.
