How Bird Control Works
January 25, 2018
It’s always wonderful to watch the birds flying around so freely. Perhaps you've enjoyed dropping some bread off at the local pond for the ducks. As fun as it all may be, some birds can be a real danger when you're looking to maintain a business, or when they choose your property to settle upon. Next time you decide to feed the birds, remember that you're only attracting them to your location, where the damage that they cause might affect you, your customers, or the business operation you hope to have run smoothly.
Though there are lots of different birds around, some of the more common problem birds are pigeons, sparrows, and starlings. Often while looking for a nice place to call home and set up their nest, birds cause substantial damage to buildings, outdoor spaces and furniture, and machinery by speeding up deterioration with their droppings. As bird droppings become more extensive and the problem persists, the threat of slips and the spread of disease becomes greater. Problem birds have also been linked to many different kinds of bacteria, fungal agents, and parasites.
