Birds are a beautiful part of our natural environment.
But sometimes, these beautiful creatures can become pests damaging homes and property with their droppings. Also, they can potentially spread disease and noise with their unwanted cries.
Typically, only some bird species are considered pests. But three of the world’s common pests are pigeons, house sparrows, and the European Starling.
They are also considered pests because they come from countries other than North America and have no natural predators in the United States.
Their growing population can adversely affect human health and safety if left unchecked. For example, they can transmit diseases such as toxoplasmosis, encephalitis, and Salmonella.
Moreover, if their droppings are left unattended, they can damage
buildings and vehicles, resulting in costly repairs. Also, if you breathe their droppings, you may contract diseases like histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis.
Bat removal is at an all-time high due to construction and development. Bats may be small creatures but can create a giant mess inside and outside your home.
