Bird Control Specialists
Pest Birds can impact significantly on maintenance and cleaning costs as well as bringing inherent health and safety risks. Fouling by Pest Birds is not only unsightly but can represent a real health and safety risk due to slips and falls. Where the Pest Bird infestation is attributable to the Feral Pigeon, flock numbers can be anywhere from 50 – 400 birds depending on the availability of food. It is therefore easy to appreciate that even with daily clearance; it’s not long before the fouling builds back up.
Gulls are also known to attack humans. These large aggressive birds can be very intimidating when swooping down on humans, displaying their natural behaviour of protecting their young, competing for food and protecting the nest site.
For the food industry professional, Pest Bird infestations are “high risk” and therefore action must be taken without delay to protect the food chain. Pest Bird infestations bring a risk to human health and your reputation. Food borne or food poisoning bacteria can spread to humans through contact with Pest Bird droppings. Disease organisms associated with bird fouling include Salmonella spp., Escherichia coli, Campylobacter jejuni, Lysteria monocytogenes and Vibrio cholerae. Air borne disease agents associated with Pest Birds and their droppings include Chlamydia psittaci and Cryptococcus neoformans
