When people think of pests, they typically think of bugs or rodents first. However, birds can be more than just a nuisance, they can be a health problem or damage property when a flock of birds congregate.
For example, pigeons are creating a problem around county buildings in Odessa, Texas leaving behind excrement everywhere. And a few years ago in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton, Texas, residents in one neighborhood battled with egrets to stop gathering and not only making annoying noise, but also leaving behind feces all over the neighborhood sidewalks. This is when a professional bird removal service can protect a home or business from these issues.
Hazards of a Bird Infestation
It’s one thing to have a flock of birds fly over and watch them migrate to an area, but it becomes a health and safety issue when numerous birds take up residence outside of a home or business. Birds are known to be carriers for more than 60 diseases that can create health issues in humans.
Their excrement not only contains ammonia and uric acid, but if left long enough it can corrode steel. This not only damages property, but a mess from their droppings can deter customers from a business.
Protecting Property from Birds
Birds are creatures of habit and can return to places that are familiar to them. This is why it is important to contact a professional bird removal service that can protect your property from a variety of birds that habitually return to the same locations.
After any nests are removed and the area is thoroughly cleaned, a pest control expert can install bird spikes, bird netting, bird wire, or bird jolts to prevent the birds from returning. The process is safe to the birds, plus it can save you from harmful health issues and costly damage to your home or business.
If you see a flock of birds roosting on your property, contact the highly trained technicians at Pest Management, Inc. to remediate bird nesting issues and to prevent any further infestations. Our bird removal services are backed with a one-year warranty, so if the birds should return we will take care of the issue at no extra charge.
