How To Control And Manage Birds

Nuisance Pigeons can ruin the looks of your building as well as pose a health threat to employees and guests. Pigeon droppings contain uric acid that actually eats into the surface it drops on. Painted surfaces, canvas awnings, signs and other similar surfaces pose the most risk. Dried bird droppings can contain many fungal and viral diseases that can represent a serious liability to your company. Histoplasmosis, Encephalitis, Meningitis, St. Louis Encephalitis, and Salmonella are just a few of the common viral and bacterial diseases that have been associated with bird droppings. Fleas, Ticks, Mites, and Lice are just a few of the parasites that have been associated with Pigeons.

Wild Feral Pigeons or rock doves are a direct descendant of the ancient Roman Homing Pigeons. Feral Pigeons are non-migratory meaning that they are often born, live and die in the same place. Once a building becomes home to pigeons, they are there for life. As a descendant of homing pigeons, feral pigeons are good flyers sometimes flying at speeds of up to 80 MPH. Trapping and Relocation may seem like a good idea, but once you travel out in the country somewhere to let them go, they will fly right back. They have an excellent sense of direction and can find their way home from many, many miles away.

Histoplasmosis is a common respiratory infection that is associated with Pigeon droppings. Histoplasmosis is caused by humans inhaling fungal spores that have cultivated on pigeon droppings. It has flu like symptoms that can persist for several weeks and that even some doctors can't diagnose. Fleas, ticks and other parasites are also known to be spread by pigeons especially near water sources where they clean themselves and pick the parasites off and drop them on the ground or eat them.

With all of the associated diseases and parasites, pigeon and bird control should be of great importance in any commercial or retail setting. The only problem is that many laws and regulations have been passed that protect certain bird species such as bluejays, cardinals, hawks, etc. The unintentional killing of these protected species can result in thousands of dollars in fines and even jail. You have to be extremely careful not to let anyone no what you are doing, because even casual bird lovers could become alarmed if they find out that you are "getting rid of the birds".

Bird lovers can become very upset when birds are controlled -even without harming them. Some may even call local TV stations, radio stations, animal rights groups - even state officials. So be extremely careful in whatever you decide to do.

Don't Feed Pigeons! - Don't feed pigeons or birds anything. If someone is feeding them even small amounts of bread or bird feed, your problem will never go away. Talk to the person doing the feeding and tell them why it needs to be stopped. Feeding them will only train them to stay in the area and will make their populations worse. Also, don't hope that the pigeons or birds will just go away. It usually takes a scare device or building modification to re-train the birds and make them leave the area.
