Pest Cleaning Services
Bird droppings not only damage a property’s aesthetic but can also spoil the foundation of a building due to the acidic nature of bird guano, resulting in more costly repair bills. Handling a large quantity of bird droppings should be done with care due to risk of disease. Ideally, pigeon guano and other bird droppings should be cleaned and disposed by experienced professionals. Therefore, at Effective Bird Control we offer highly effective and practical solutions to pigeon guano and other bird faeces removal.
Pigeon Guano Removal
Pigeons can produce 12-14kg of droppings a year and it can be extremely difficult to manage and clean. More Specifically, if birds have settled and inhabited in and around your property it is more than likely that bird excrement will be found. Even if their presence isn’t a nuisance to you, their droppings can damage your property and present you with a health risk, as stated above.
Effective Bird Control can ensure that all traces of droppings are removed, leaving your building hygienically clean and disinfected. We can also install anti-bird measures, which will deter roosting and ensure that you don’t have a reoccurrence of the problem.
Health Hazards of Bird Droppings
When it comes to birds, there may be more than just avian flu to be worried about. Birds carry many deadly diseases within their bird droppings and there is a high risk of these transferring to us, leaving us extremely ill. Below lists some examples of transmissible bird diseases:
Histoplasmosis – Results from fungus growing in dried bird droppings. Histoplasmosis is contracted by breathing in the bacteria of bird guano and it primarily affects a person’s lungs. However, once spread through the entirety of the body, the consequences can be fatal.
Cryptococcosis – Is a yeast-like infection which results in tumours in lungs and in some cases, spreading to the brain.
Psittacosis – Also known as Parrott fever – Psittacosis is an infection caused by the bacterium Chlamydophila. Psittacosis can be mild, moderate or severe; it can also be difficult to detect as some people have no symptoms.
Salmonella – Once the illness has been contracted it can have severe consequence, especially for young children, who are more vulnerable to the disease. Dust from droppings can be sucked through ventilators and air conditioners, contaminating food and cooking surfaces in restaurants, homes and food processing plants.
The main issue with bird droppings is that the diseases are airborne and can therefore be easily contracted by us humans. Therefore, it is crucial to take a zero tolerant approach to bird droppings. At Effective Bird Control we offer both cleaning and preventative actions to help manage bird guano and its consequences.
