Description

Pest birds can include many different types of birds that all rely on humans to help them survive. They nest on or near our homes or businesses and other structures and they include:

  • Pigeons

  • Geese

  • Starlings

  • Ducks

  • English sparrows

  • Bats (although not birds, bats cause similar problems as pest birds and can be controlled in similar ways)

These pests are responsible for millions of dollars in damages to our homes and businesses every year with their droppings, which contain corrosive uric acid. Pest birds can also be quite hazardous to our physical health in several different ways. Their droppings can be slippery and can cause people to fall and seriously hurt themselves. Bird feces can also release spores into the air that are very dangerous when breathed into our lungs. Pest birds are also known for spreading parasites like fleas, ticks and mites.
