Bird Damage and Health Concerns
Birds like to nest in places like the eaves, roofs, gutters, vents and other places around your home. In order to create the perfect nesting area they dig holes in roofs and can get into attics and other spaces.
Bird droppings can corrode house siding, other types of metal or the paint off of cars. Droppings make sidewalks and driveways slippery and just generally ruin the look of your home. Pigeons in particular can make a huge mess on pavement and patios and bring a hose of health concerns.
Plus, there are health risks, thanks to the parasites that many of them carry, and from the droppings. Some of the diseases attributed to birds include:
Species of Birds
- Pigeons - one of the most common bird pests that like to group together in large numbers. Their droppings often dry out and turn to dust, which can get sucked into air vents and cause a number of health issues.
- Seagulls - can be particularly destructive and are not only a risk from their droppings and parasites, but are known to be aggressive and willing to attack people.
- Starlings - common nesters around homes that are notorious for flocking in huge numbers. If you’ve ever seen clouds of dark colored birds flying out of trees near your home and raising a ruckus with their noise, it’s a good chance they were starlings. They leave a copious amount of droppings all over your property.
- House sparrows - small brown birds that may not travel in huge flocks, but they tend to return to the same nesting places year after year, which can cause recurring damage to your home.
