Health hazard: Birds, bird droppings and nesting materials can carry over 60 different diseases that can be given to humans and animals

Bird mite: Bird mite is a small but extremely mobile mite that suck blood from the birds, which is barely visible to the eye until the blood is digested.

Inventory damage: Dropping can damage products and contaminate production lines but in such areas can affect your food safety audit.

Bad Image: Bird dropping and nesting is an ugly feature for homes and businesses. Birds on a ledge or sign, or covering pavements or driveways, look voracious and do not portray a clean image.

Cleaning Costs: Businesses cleaning up after birds on a daily or weekly basis are wasting money and exposing employees to health risks.

Property and Equipment Damage: Bird dropping may deactivate machinery or equipment or require regular cleaning so operators are not exposed. Droppings are highly acidic and can distort building materials and stain clothing and even cars.

Blocked drains and gutters: Drooping and nesting materials regularly block gutters and drains. This can create other problems on roofs and other areas by creating flooding potential.

  • Bird Spikes: To prevent birds from roosting by forcing them off to flight somewhere or by gently pushing them off balance is used.

Bird Prevention Tips:

The best way to keep birds away for good is to remove their food sources, however, in busy urban areas, this is not always a practical solution. If birds are causing a nuisance in the premises of your business, there are several tricks you can try:

  • Eliminate any access to nesting sites (for example by placing barriers on window ledges) can be an effective bird deterrent.
  • Keep any potential food sources well hidden.
  • Make sure the bin lids are safe and that the garbage bags are not left in the open – birds like crows have sharp beaks that will reduce waste bags.
