Birds, bird droppings and nesting materials carry transmittable diseases and ectoparasites. Bird droppings are highly acidic and can stain and corrode building materials. Birds can contaminate food production and inventory when they nest in warehouses. Regular cleanup of bird droppings can cost businesses thousands of dollars every year. Bird nests can clog drains and pose a fire risk near lighting or other features. Bird droppings can be a liability by creating a slip and fall risk. The longer birds can nest or roost in an unwanted area; the harder it will be to get them to leave. It’s important to take a proactive approach when dealing with pest birds. In the long run, it can save you time and money.
Birds, bird droppings and nesting materials can carry 60 different diseases and ectoparasites that can be passed to humans and animals. If dried bird droppings are found near ventilation systems, they can travel through buildings potentially infecting inhabitants with compromised immune systems.
Droppings can damage products and contaminate production lines. Birds can often be found nesting or perching on rafters in warehouses and storage facilities. Bird droppings present in such areas may violate health codes.
Bird droppings and nests are an unattractive feature for homes and businesses. Birds on a ledge or sign, or droppings covering a sidewalk may send a message to visitors that the business is careless.
Businesses that clean up after birds on a daily or weekly basis are wasting money and exposing employees to health risks. Some businesses spend thousands of dollars each year on the regular cleanup of bird droppings. Installing bird control products can save businesses time and money.
Bird droppings may render machinery or equipment inoperable or may require regular clean up so operators are not exposed. Droppings are highly acidic and can corrode buildings materials and stain fabrics. These will need restoration or complete replacement once damaged.
Pest birds and droppings found in food processing plants, restaurants, storage facilities or other areas may violate health codes resulting in fines, legal action or closures. Birds are considered a pest and need the same type of consideration as say cockroaches or rats.
Employees should not work in areas that are unsafe due to an accumulation of bird droppings. Bird droppings carry disease and affect those with weakened immune systems. If an employee becomes sick due to an ignored bird problem, the business will most likely be liable.
Bird droppings can be slippery. If a customer or employee falls they may sue the building owner or property manager. A man in New York City was awarded $6 million dollars in 2006 from the city after slipping on pigeon droppings in a subway.
Droppings and nesting materials regularly clog drains and gutters. This can cause other problems on roofs and other areas by damming water paths and creating the potential of flooding.
