Pest birds have been known to carry 50 types of infectious diseases and can harbor over 38 types of parasites that can be spread by the dried feces, nest sites or other ways.

   The accumulation of droppings in some of these species in particular are unsightly, effecting the image of the building, causing damage to products, eating away at concrete or brick surfaces, metals and painted surfaces and can be a safety and health liability or slip and fall hazard to you, your family, customers and employees alike.

   To gain control of most birds it's necessary to look at what they are doing to be a nuisance. Are they nesting on the roof tops, under the eaves or Ac units or are they on some part of the structures where the droppings are landing in an undesirable location like the entryway to a home or business creating slip and fall hazards and liabilities.

   Then the decision has to be made on the correct deterrent or exclusion methods to be used so the pest bird will not return to that location. Some bird exclusion or deterrent products work better than others in a given situation, that's why it is so important to know the type of the pest bird you are dealing with as well as being knowledgeable in many deterrent systems to get the best results visually and budget wise.

   Please keep in mind that in most cases, pigeons or birds that you see nesting on your property, have done so for a long time before you see them and it may take a few days to many weeks for the nesting or the very dedicated birds to move away. If the bird was born at the site it is even harder. When birds try to get past our work, then realize that there is no longer any comfortable places to set up residence at that location, they will usually move away from the closed off nesting or roosting site on your property to another unprotected location on your building or if all locations are closed off they will move to another structure or building. Birds are living creatures with small brains that operate mostly by habit and instinct. No one can predict what they will do or where they will go.

   In short - The best method of eradication on a structure is simply taking away the nesting and roosting sites then making it too hard or uncomfortable for the pest birds to stay on your building or property.


Potential problems caused by pest birds around your business

Understanding Bird Pressure

  • Heavy Bird Pressure
    Birds are very committed to a heavy pressure site.
    Chances are that the bird was born on this area, usually a protected overnight roost and may have raised their young in the same place, thus they consider this area home. They react to deterrent products much like you would if you came home and found all the doors and windows boarded up with plywood; you'd be determined to get past the plywood and the birds react the same way.
  • Medium Bird Pressure
    Birds are less committed to a medium pressure site than a heavy pressure site
    This is most likely an area where they observe food opportunities or rest in the afternoon for many different reasons. They are fairly committed to this site but they don't nest in this location
  • Light Bird Pressure
    Like a park bench you occasionally sit on, light pressure areas are a take it or leave it kind of site for pest birds. They may stop by after a meal to rest or take in the warmth of the afternoon sun, like a parapet wall or roof ridge of your home or business. The absence of food and shelter makes this a casual daytime loafing spot and birds are fairly easy to move from this type of site.
