NUISANCE BIRD CONCERNS:

Birds can be a beautiful sight and are wonderful to listen to. They play an important part of the natural insect control and are also useful for the dispersal of seeds. Scavenging birds quickly and effectively dispose of dead animals, especially road kill.

While birds can be helpful, the destruction and aggravation of certain species of birds, however, outweigh the potential benefits. In some instances, the birds become fiercely protective of their new home and attack people and animals. The situation can quickly turn into a nuisance and it can become a quite costly problem. Birds can roost in rafters and on beams, nest behind insulation, get into walls. Unsanitary conditions, such as contamination can arise from bird droppings (guano), which are also a health hazardous.

HOW WE GET RID OF NUISANCE BIRDS:

In most cases, they are most effective when used in combination. A majority of birds, however, are protected by the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty and require special permits for the removal. The safest method of removal is to contact a qualified professional to take care of the nuisance birds. Wildlife control specialists are trained to humanely eradicate troublesome birds from homes.

MOST COMMON DISEASES SPREAD BY BIRDS:

Histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis are two of the most common diseases spread by bird feces. Birds are also a host for parasites which can transmit a number of diseases as well.
