When Birds Become Pests, Anderson Bird Control is Here
Birds are beautiful creatures, and their ability to fly has captivated audiences for centuries. But once they invade a building or an area, nests and droppings create serious problems for companies. More than that, their germs and parasites can cause as many as 60 different diseases, infections and illnesses in humans. Some of these diseases include salmonella, meningitis, encephalitis and more. This is particularly problematic for companies that have high sanitary standards to uphold.
Some of the problems birds bring to businesses include:
- Large amounts of noise
- Gutter and drainage clogs from nests
- Building damage from nests and feces
- Destroying pristine properties
- Contamination of equipment and other products
All About Bird Control
Bird control usually takes much more than setting a scarecrow outside to frighten them away. It takes humane tactics practiced by a whole team of professionals that are designed to send them off and keep them away.
Bird control tactics can include anything from bird repellants, roosting and landing prevention techniques and more. As part of our guaranteed Four-Step Process, Anderson technicians inspect the area for potential habitat creation points and ways to reduce a bird’s access to food sources. Many common birds we target include:
- Pigeons: Known as one of the “dirtiest” of birds, pigeons get this moniker because of their lack of housekeeping skills. Their nests can quickly turn into a trove of feces, debris and even unhatched baby birds.
- Starlings: Known for going to the bathroom right where they eat, starlings travel in huge numbers and enjoy congregating in grassy areas. They prefer to nest in buildings, trees and any nook they can find.
- Sparrows: This aggressive bird will fight for food – and makes a lot of noise in the process. They like to start fights with other birds and when in the city, are prone to nest in buildings. They also like to reuse their previous year’s nest.
- Grackles: A bird that likes to travel in packs, grackles are noisy and create a huge amount of waste around them. They are also aggressive, consuming a large amount of food as they travel through.
- Geese: They’re known to be extremely territorial and will attack if you get close to their nests – which are very big and seem to everywhere. Same with their droppings.
- Gulls: Seagulls aren’t just found near oceans, but any body of water such as a lake or river. They’ll eat anything, and the resulting droppings can cause structural damage.
