Things might get messy when birds, such as starlings, pigeons and sparrows, settle down on your property. That’s because these winged lodgers leave droppings and nests behind all over the place. Not only does it cause frustration for homeowners, but it can also take a serious toll on human health.
Bird Droppings Can Be Dangerous
In addition to causing significant odor, bird droppings are also associated with human health concerns and damage. Bird faces can pose a danger to your health, especially when coming in contact with your body. You can also get infected by inhaling disease-causing particles from stinky bird faces. To make matters worse, bird droppings easily spread to nearby areas through the wind, moisture, birds, rodents, or somehow else.
Apart from bird droppings, debris and feathers under a roost is also a breeding ground for parasites that cause severe transmissible diseases. For example, they may give rise to histoplasmosis, candidiasis, salmonellosis, and other diseases or infections.
Due to the high acid content, bird droppings can destroy and stain painted surfaces, causing substantial damage to building materials. Likewise, they can wreak havoc on car paint if left untreated because they are highly corrosive.
Keep Birds Out of Vents
Some birds that live in urban areas, such as starlings, like to nest inside vents during the nesting season in summer and spring. So don’t be surprised if you hear noises from inside your ventilation systems. Clothing dryer vents, as well as openings that exhaust bathroom and kitchen fans, provide attractive nesting spots.
These openings on exterior walls are often covered by aluminum or plastic caps. Acting as flaps round louver, these covers open to let the air get out. They can be manipulated by quick-witted starlings without hassle. Once the birds get inside, they will start to construct their nests, stuffing and cramming various nesting materials into your vents. Feces and urine inside the vents produce an unpleasant smell throughout your home.
Starling nests contain a lot of mites. They spread and attach to human skin when removing bird nests. That’s why their nests should be removed cautiously and with great care. Once the vent pipe is reached, it is necessary to chase away adult birds and remove their babies if any. When trapped inside the vents, the birds are going to pass away, resulting in maggots, flies, and bad odor. So make sure there are no birds in the vents prior to securing the covers.
Humane Bird Removal
Just like other pests, birds should be removed from the house. Humane bird removal is considered to be the best solution. Here’s what it includes:
- Identification – First things first, it’s necessary to identify all the entry points of birds before determining the phase of their life cycle. Vents, chimneys, and attics are the most common nest sites.
- Removal – It is important not to disrupt bird babies when removing birds as well as their nesting material to ensure economical and humane removal. We will place a protective container in the vicinity of their previous nests. This allows adults to continue feeding their babies until they become able to fly.
- Clearing and cleaning – At this step, our technicians will clear and clean contaminated materials, such as odorous carcasses or droppings. The clearing tactics involve ventilation system inspection and insulation repair as well. That ensures a healthy environment for your family and you.
- Prevention – To prevent bird infestations from occurring again in the future, we will seal and screen any potential entry points. By keeping birds away, you can rest assured that your family and your home will be protected altogether.
Act Fast Before Your Property Becomes Substantially Damaged
Birds often go undetected for a while so that you may share your home with them without being aware of a problem. They tend to multiply quickly when left alone for some time. Restorations or repair due to damage caused by birds can carve out a massive dent in your budget. When accumulating on metal, siding, and brick, bird droppings can cause substantial damage. This will eventually result in costly repairs.
It is in your best interest to act fast as soon as you notice the birds in your home. That will help you avoid health hazards and damage to your property.
