Who doesn’t love birds? The mere mention of the word conjures up peaceful images of elegant winged creatures, gracefully soaring high above. But when filthy pigeons and other annoying birds have decided to move into your home or business, watch how quickly that beautiful picture you’ve created disappears.
Ok. So now that we’ve ruined your image of birds forever, read on to find out why you really need to take bird and pigeon control Vancouver seriously.
Physical Bird Pest Problems
Bird business is far more than just a reason to reach for your trusty umbrella. For starters, bird droppings are extremely acidic, capable of killing grass, eating through roofing material (hello leaks), destroying car paint, and even corroding metal. And that’s just your stuff. Ignoring your pigeon problem could land you a (sometimes one-way) trip to the emergency ward. Bird poop can transmit a host of unhappy little illnesses like Encephalitis, salmonella, Meningitis, Toxoplasmosis, and other hard-to-pronounce diseases. Oh…and if you have tenants or employees, better get rid of those birds fast. Otherwise, you could be looking at some hefty lawsuits, making you wish you’d never left the hospital.
Pigeons (and other flying demons) just love to nest—and nest they will on your building ledges, roofs, and eaves. And once they’ve set up shop, bird nests can block drainage pipes, rain gutters, vents, or chimneys, creating water leaks and potential fire hazards.
Believe it or not, birds nesting in attics have also been known to cause ceilings to collapse. Over time, poop, nesting materials, and standing water can build up, ultimately becoming too heavy for ceilings and roofs to support the weight. Well, let’s hope you at least took out a good insurance policy.
Roosting, nesting, cooing and scratching—birds are notoriously noisy rabble-rousers, never giving folks a moment’s rest. For business owners, your customers will be racing for the nearest exit in search of a quieter place to hang out. For families, frolicking fowls like to party, so we hope you’re not a big fan of sleep.
Other Risks Caused By Birds
Chances are pretty good that you have come across a bird’s nest at some point in your life, and perhaps you even found it interesting to watch as young ones are born, grow, and eventually leave the nest. Unfortunately, bird nests can bring other risks and hazards.
