Damage Caused By Birds
Serving Illinois and Indiana
If you consider birds welcome visitors, it’s important to understand the dangers they bring to your property. While humans are unlikely to become ill through direct contact with birds, these winged intruders can transmit diseases like the potentially life-threatening histoplasmosis via their droppings.
Disease and Illness Caused by Birds
The germs and parasites that birds can spread through excrement can cause over 60 different diseases and infections in humans, including Salmonella and E. coli infections. The Department of Public Health recommends wearing personal protective equipment, including a respirator outfitted with HEPA filters, when cleaning up old accumulations of droppings. For this reason, it’s best to call a professional pest control company who specializes in bird removal services and can carefully take care of any bird problems you may be experiencing.

Property Damage Caused by Bird Droppings
Nesting birds are capable of causing a lot of damage to any property. Some of the types of damage they can cause are as follows:
- Birds such as pigeons, starlings, and sparrows will roost in eaves, peck at shingles and siding, and eventually cause structural damage.
- A woodpecker damages a building even faster with its continual pecking, which can cause major destruction in a matter of minutes.
- Bird droppings also corrode expensive business equipment and materials like metal, concrete, and paint.
