The Dangers Of Pest Birds In Your Commercial Facility

Birds in nature can be considered beautiful, but when they nest in or around your business, birds become a dangerous nuisance, one that shouldn’t be allowed to stay. The different types of birds in our service area include pigeons, geese, grackles, starlings, ducks, crows and English sparrows. If you’ve been encountering birds around your commercial facility, there are many reasons to evict these pests now, before the problems they cause escalate and cause severe damages or even health problems for employees and customers.

The dangers that can come from pest birds nesting around your commercial facility are numerous. Here are just a few of the problems that can arise from nesting birds on or around your business:

The feces from pest birds fall onto our structures and our walkways. These droppings contain corrosive uric acid, which has the ability to deface rooftops, walkways, walls, vehicles and equipment. These acidic droppings eat away at paint, concrete, metal and can eventually cause a structure to become irreversibly damaged.

Pest birds can endanger themselves and your employees; they entangle themselves in machinery, they can block ventilation ducts and cause fires.

Bird droppings are unsanitary; they can render walking surfaces slippery and dangerous, which is a liability for both employees and customers.

Birds are known for carrying over sixty diseases that can be transmitted to humans. Some of the diseases that can be spread are potentially fatal; serious diseases that are associated with pest birds include histoplasmosis, West Nile virus, salmonellosis, cryptococcosis, St. Louis encephalitis and candidiasis.

Pest birds are also known to spread parasites and pests, including mites, ticks and lice. These can be spread to humans and pets when these birds nest in and around your facility.

Getting rid of birds in your commercial facility is absolutely necessary for a safe and sanitary environment. In fact, government organizations and health boards can cite your facility for the messes and sanitation problems pest birds can cause. The professionals at Action Pest Control have the solution!
