Birds become a problem when they decide to roost or nest in areas of a residence or business where they are unwanted. Birds, droppings and their nesting materials can carry over 60 transmittable diseases and ectoparasites that can be transmitted to other animals and humans. The longer a bird population is left to nest uninvited on your property; the more difficult it becomes to get rid of them. Proactive approaches are best when it comes to dealing with pest birds, as they will save time and unnecessary costs in the long run.
Bird infestations can also bring with them a range of other uninvited pests such as fleas and flies, but most commonly bird mites.
