Among the various species of pest birds that are troublesome, there are several that can be particularly damaging. These include:
Droppings from these species of birds contain high amounts of corrosive uric acid. This acid is a problem for humans because it can damage various building materials. It takes very little time for bird droppings to accumulate on stone, metal, brick, and siding of your home. If you don’t remove these deposits in a timely manner, you could be left with costly repairs and even irreversible damage. In order to prevent damage to your home, your best option is to deter, exclude and remove birds from your property as quickly as possible. When looking to accomplish this, calling the professionals to help you with controlling bird populations is the safest and most effective option.
When thinking about why controlling bird populations around your home is so important, keep in mind that bird droppings also create health risks for both pets and humans. Sparrow, starling and pigeon droppings often contain a fungal disease named histoplasmosis. There is a risk of inhalation if you are exposed to bird nests and roosts that are highly contaminated with dangerous fungal spores. If dry bird feces become airborne and travel through open windows and air vents, that is when humans are most at risk of infection.
If you are opting for the DIY approach to decontaminating and cleaning bird nests and roosts, always wear personal protective equipment. On the other hand, the recommended option is to always seek professional help.
