Why Have Bird Control?
Birds can spread human and animal disease and carry parasites. They also can damage your home. In order to help keep your family and pets safe you need to consider bird control services.
Disease Spread Without Bird Control
Disease organisms spread by birds include:
- Brachyspira hyodysenteriae (swine dysentery)
- Salmonella spp.
- Escherichia coli
- Campylobacter spp.
- Listeria monocytogenes
Humans are at risk of becoming infected with these organisms through poor standards of hygiene, after being in contact with droppings or if birds contaminate food or water. High levels of birds can introduce new strains of Salmonella and re-circulate existing infections.
Our Wildlife X Team Specialists will work to identify the bird species, behavior, frequency and habits of any birds on your property. Additionally, they will also look to determine the bird pressure, meaning the number and density of birds, in particular areas. Using this information, your specialist will be able to select the most appropriate bird proofing strategy.
Your specialist will also work to remove bird droppings before installing any type of deterrent, anti-perching product or other treatment strategy. These droppings can pose a health risk to your customers, leading to salmonella, psittacosis and E-coli. Droppings can also cause insect infestation, damage to your products and equipment and more.
Once droppings have been removed and the situation fully evaluated, your specialist will be able to begin applying bird proofing strategies on your property.
