The most common birds found in and around homes and building structures are pigeons, starlings, and sparrows. Common nesting areas include high ledges and alcoves of building and structures, eavestrough, under soffit areas, awnings, wall vents, siding, attics, and many store front signs.
A technician will thoroughly inspect your home or building structure and determine the problem areas that need to be addressed. The most humane approach will be chosen ensuring that the problem is resolved in a timely manner.
The uric acid in bird’s feces will corrode stone, metal, and masonry over time.
Pigeons can carry Newcastle disease, aspergillosis, pigeon ornithosis, encephalitis, pigeon coccidiosis, toxoplasmosis and salmonellosis. Ectoparasites such as pigeon nest fleas, bugs, ticks and mites may bite man causing skin infections, welts and possibly transmit disease. Cleaning up of accumulation of dry dusty pigeon droppings can transmit Cryptococosis and Histoplasmosis (systemic fungus).
Sparrows and starlings can aid in carrying such diseases as avian tuberculosis, turkey blackhead, Newcastle disease, canary pox, pullorum, and numerous fungal and protozoan parasites. Starlings also harbor chicken louse, the bird louse, and the northern fowl mite. Sparrows droppings are also unsightly and can be a danger to those passing by as they may slip and fall due to excess droppings in common walking areas.
