Don't Ignore Pest Birds
First and foremost, birds are a very real threat when it comes to sanitation. After they have found a secluded place to set up their nests, they get quite comfortable, coming and going as they please. When they do, naturally, they leave droppings behind. Not only are these droppings a safety risk in regards to being slippery and causing potential falls, but they are full of different parasites and diseases. Candidiasis and Cryptococcosis are two diseases that can be passed along and are associated with the yeast relative to birds and histoplasmosis is a respiratory disease that is also associated with pest birds and in some cases is fatal.
Bird droppings are also known to create millions of dollars worth of damage to buildings. These droppings fall upon buildings, rotting them and ruining them, causing wood to deteriorate and metals to discolor and age at an expedited rate. All in all, bird droppings are bad for both the building and the people in or around it.
Birds also tend to use a variety of materials when building their nests. Some bird species have been known to use insulation and wiring as part of their nest structure. These materials are, naturally, torn from someplace, including but not limited to, machinery, walls and electrical systems. When ripping these materials free for their own comfort, birds inadvertently ruin whatever it is these materials came from. Also, while forming these nests, birds have been known to interrupt air conditioning systems, heating systems, and venting systems.
Another important note about pest birds is that, aside from the issues listed already, they can introduce even more problems into a building, like other pests. Ticks and mites can be found on birds due to the hard time birds have removing them on their own. Once introduced, these other pests present their own problems and introduce even more disease.
