When people think of birds, they usually do not associate them with pests. They especially do not associate them with pest control services. However, birds can cause issues to infrastructure through defacing it with bird droppings, spreading disease, and emitting unpleasant odors. Furthermore, birds will stick around as long as their water and food source exists. Therefore, birds can be a real hazard to your livelihood and require bird pest control services to safely clean up and eliminate the pest’s risks.
There are many different types of birds, and each carries its own risk factors. For example, pigeons can turn a rather pristine building into a dirty mess with their feces in no time. Another example is woodpeckers. When woodpeckers use housing structures, they make holes, which allow other pests in and structurally damage the location. Moreover, disease from bird droppings or birds themselves is a large and very real threat to human health. When a human touches or steps in bird feces, they can drag it on their shoe, or touch another surface after touching the feces, which another human may come in contact with. This can start the chain effect of spreading a disease. In addition, birds themselves carry diseases on their feet, and when a human comes into contact with that surface by touching it, they can transfer the disease to themselves by wiping their eyes, mouth, or nose. Thus, the simple presence of a bird can lead to the spread of disease. That is why a bird control service is necessary.
Professional bird control services will help safely remove the birds and ensure measures are in place to prevent their return. For example, a bird pest control service may use methods to trap the birds, shock them away, or lead them to a natural environment. In fact, the end goal is not to terminate the birds, but it is to remove them with minimal to no harm so they will not return. Bird control professionals have to be trained and certified in these methods. Therefore, they know the varying species of birds, their behaviors, and how to best remove them. Untrained residents with bird control issues, on the other hand, do not have this knowledge and when they try to handle the issue on their own, it may result in harm to themselves or the birds.
