Reason For Pest: Under normal circumstances birds enhance the natural surroundings. However, when they adapt to unnatural surroundings and invade buildings and public spaces in cities they become a pest by causing damage to buildings and by carrying and spreading dangerous diseases to both animals and humans. Bird droppings are corrosive and cause damage to property. It carries dangerous pathogens which can get inhaled when airborne, including through ventilating systems in buildings. Nests can clog drains and gutters and they can make a building look aesthetically untidy. Bird infestations also encourage secondary infestation by attracting a range of other pests. These include the attraction of flies, beetles, fleas and mites.
Where They Live: Sparrows and starlings often invade commercial premises such warehouses, shopping centres and grocery stores. They also prefer to nest in ceilings of residential properties, where their presence can become a noisy, irritating and unhealthy nuisance. Pigeons can be seen in public places, on rooftops, in gutters, on ledges and structure of buildings, and are often referred to as ‘flying rats’ due to the filth and disease they spread. Seagulls mostly cause problems and concerns as a pest when perching or nesting on rooftops of commercial buildings and residences close to the ocean.
Treatment Method: Contrac2Kill has a wide range of products and services to help control birds from nesting or perching on or in buildings. An important part of any treatment is to locate, treat and remove all nesting materials from the property. There is a wide range of bird proofing options that can be applied for successful bird control such as bird spike and bird netting. However the choice of treatment can only be determined by carrying out a thorough inspection and understanding the needs of the customer.
