Bird droppings and nests can block gutters and downpipes, leading to water damage and corrosion of the building fabrics.
Most diseases associated with birds are usually caused by their droppings, such as Ornithosis, Avian Influenza (bird flu), Bird Fancier’s Lung, Salmonella).
Bird nests and droppings can be a source of many insect and mite pests that can invade the building. These include:
Biting pests – Bird fleas, Bird lice, Bird mites etc.
Textile pests – Clothes moth, Carpet beetle etc.
Crawling pests – Bird mites, Lesser mealworm beetle etc.
Flying pests – Blowflies (both adults and maggots).
Bird droppings are a serious slip hazard, for example on pavements and fire escapes. Another issue concerning safety is seagulls attacking humans for food or protecting their young.
Some people have phobias of birds and their feathers.
The noise of roosting and nesting birds such as starlings and seagulls can be extremely infuriating.
Birds are attracted to spillages, and this can lead them to feeding directly on the products and contaminate them with faecal matter.
