Frequently Asked Questions
How can birds damage my property?
Birds can damage your property in several different ways. First of all, their fecal matter has highly acidic properties, which can cause structural damage to buildings. Not only that, but their feathers, as well as nesting habits can clog gutters, which can lead to water damage. They can cause structural weakness to the roof of a building, leaving it to the mercy of atmospheric conditions. As you can see, birds can be a more serious problem than most people realise.
Are bird excrements harmful to humans?
Yes, they can be. Birds carry a host of different diseases and their feces are one of the ways they spread them. They are a source of a wide variety of bacterial, fungal, and even viral infections. You can easily inhale many pathogens if there’s a bird infestation in the vicinity.
How can I keep birds away from my property?
Birds can be quite impertinent. Rarely do they take the hint that they’re not welcome somewhere, so you need to make sure you’re sending the right message. One of the surest ways you can do it is by destroying their nests. It might not work out from the first time. But once you destroy it a few times over, they’ll get the idea that maybe it’s not such a great place to start a family. You should also remove easily accessed food or water sources, because they make your property rather inviting. Finally, bird spikes should also do the trick if nothing else works.
The birds are gone, but they left a mess and lots of droppings. Now what?
We don’t recommend trying to clean bird droppings on your own. You don’t know what diseases they might be carrying, so it’s a better idea to leave it to the pros. Otherwise, you might do more harm than good.
