Pigeons, sparrows, and crows can be a major problem for homeowners and commercial building owners. Pigeons, are known for living in heavily populated communities, where there is a lot of food available. The common pigeon causes damage to buildings, cars, drainage systems, and many other things. Pigeons carry diseases that are transferable to humans. Some of the more common types of diseases that people contract because they have come in contact with birds or their droppings are Histoplasmosis, Candidiasis and Cryptococcosis. Most of these diseases are either associated with house sparrows or pigeons.

Pigeons also have a long lifespan which means the bird can stay in one place for many years making the issue worse over the course of time. Pigeons are homing birds; therefore they return to the area of birth or nesting time after time. Over the course of time, the birds multiply and so does the damage and nuisance. If birds are becoming a burden in your life and you feel that your health or property is a risk, then it is best to take pest prevention measures.

What are birds?

Birds belong to the classification Aves and are warm-blooded vertebrates distinguished by their feathers, lightweight skeletons, beaked jaws, and egg-laying abilities. Specific colors and patterns for birds depend on the exact species, but most are easily distinguished based on these characteristics. There are many species of birds worldwide and across the United States, but some species tend to flock around human structures leading to infestation issues.

Bird species that you need to keep an eye out for include pigeons, European starlings, house sparrows, and finches. Each species can settle around human structures in large numbers and cause problems over time.

Are birds dangerous?

Though many people regard birds as nothing more than a nuisance, these pests can be dangerous to host around your property. Most birds spread serious illnesses such as histoplasmosis, meningitis, and salmonella. You can contract these diseases by contact with the bird, their droppings, or the contaminated areas they have passed through.

Furthermore, birds carry parasitic pests on them, like fleas, ticks, and mites, and they will drop these pests off around your property. Over time, parasitic pest infestations will grow and present their own health and safety risks.

There is also a chance of birds attacking, destroying your items as they roost, leaving behind droppings, and triggering allergic reactions or breathing issues when infestations are left untreated around your property. Bird control is necessary to avoid these negatives.

Why do I have a bird problem?

Easy food, water, and shelter can trigger a bird problem on your property. One of the best bird control methods you can follow is evaluating your property for these areas and eliminating factors that may make it desirable to birds.

Where will I find birds?

Birds typically settle around the exterior areas of your property and can be seen on flat, elevated surfaces, as these provide prime spots for nesting. They may also inhabit trees, rooftops, and attics if they can find their way inside.
