Birds pests are well known to carry a range of diseases and are hosts to other insect pests. Humans can also develop symptoms similar to influenza from the spores from bird droppings.
Professional bird control is not only critical to avoid damage to your property but also to minimise the health risks posed by the presence of certain birds.
Pigeons, for example, are hosts to parasitic pests such as ticks, fleas and bird mites, which can spread to people. The pest insects live on the birds, their droppings and nesting materials. The parasites can invade buildings in search of a new food source.
