Effective Bird Control is Vital

Cost of maintenance:

Pest birds cost individuals and businesses millions of dollars each year in clean-up expenses, repairs, and damaged equipment. Large individual companies are spending in the six-figure range.

Corrosive droppings:

The corrosive effects of bird droppings can cause irreversible damage – defacing rooftops, walkways, walls, vehicles and equipment. Bird droppings quickly turn to salt and ammonia; after rain, electrochemical reactions speed up the rusting process. These acidic droppings eat away at paint, concrete and metal, and can eventually cause structural failure.

Property damage:

Birds are destructive to property, equipment, and products. They interfere with operations in many ways, endangering themselves and workers – pest birds entangle themselves in machinery, block ventilation ducts, cause fires, peck holes in roofing and utility poles, bring down power lines, and cause hazardous and even fatal aircraft bird strikes.


Bird droppings are unsanitary and can render walking surfaces slippery and dangerous, creating unnecessary liabilities. Pollution from bird droppings can enter the human food chain through improper sanitation. Government organizations and health boards such as OSHA and the USDA regularly give citations and fines for bird mess problems. Businesses that fail to correct these situations in a timely manner can face even harsher penalties and may be forced to shut down completely.

Spread of disease:

Birds are known to carry over sixty transmissible diseases – some potentially fatal. Bird droppings help to spread disease when fecal dust enters living areas or when someone enters contaminated spaces and starts breathing in fungal spores.

Serious diseases associated with pest birds include:

  • Histoplasmosis – a potentially fatal respiratory disease; results from a fungus growing in dried bird droppings.
  • West Nile Virus – a serious and potentially life-threatening infection; spread by mosquitos that have fed on infected wild birds.
  • Salmonellosis – a bacteria that often occurs as food poisoning; can be traced to pigeons, starlings and sparrows, bird droppings and dust from bird droppings.
  • Candidiasis – a yeast or fungal infection that affects the skin, mouth, and respiratory system; spread by pigeons.
  • Cryptococcosis – an illness that begins as a pulmonary disease and can later affect the central nervous system; caused by yeast found in the intestinal tract of pigeons and starlings.
  • St. Louis Encephalitis – an inflammation of the nervous system that can result in paralysis, coma or death; spread by mosquitos which have fed on infected house sparrows, pigeons, and house finches.

Besides being direct carriers of disease, pest birds are frequently associated with over 50 kinds of ectoparasites, which can work their way throughout structures to infest and bite humans:

  • Bed bugs – parasitic insects that feed on human blood and have become a worldwide epidemic; find out how to detect Bed Bugs sooner with Bed Bug ALERT monitors.
  • Chicken mites – known carriers of encephalitis; may also cause fowl mite dermatitis and acariasis.
  • Yellow mealworms – may cause intestinal canthariasis and hymenolespiasis.

Here's what pest bird infestation was costing this company:

A major corporation cleaned bird droppings from a 500 ft sidewalk once a week.  It took half a day each time, using many gallons of water and kwh of electricity each time – plus labor costs and associated risk of disease, slip-&-fall, etc.  Then they installed a bird control product and after 6 months, they still hadn ot needed to clean the walkway – plus the entire parking lot was free of birds and bird messes.
