PIGEON BIRD CONTROL
Rodents and insects are not the only pests imposing on Tennessee businesses and homes. Birds such as pigeons, sparrows and crows, among many others, plague our buildings and vehicles with their nesting habits and droppings. Having a reliable resource to help cut back the likelihood of damage as well as the dangers of disease is an added benefit in your quest. Our professionals working at HTP Pest have extensive training and experience in bird removal and control.
Bird Diseases & Damage
Birds are found nesting in attics, chimneys, garage, sheds and soffits. In their efforts, they can cause costly damage to structures. Concentrated bird excrement can cause irreparable damage as well as attract insects. Bird’s feathers can carry lice and mites and bird droppings can transmit disease. Pigeon droppings can cause Histoplasmosis, which is an infection to the lungs. It is treatable if caught early but if it travels throughout the body, it can be fatal. After birds have been removed, fixing damage and disinfecting the affected areas is crucial. If left untreated, pigeon and other bird droppings can leave rooftops to rot, contributing to leaks and other roof afflictions.
Health Hazards Posed by Feral Pigeons
Feral pigeons are a close descendant of the European Homing Pigeon. They have no hesitancy living in close proximity with people and have little fear of our presence. They are attracted to places where food and water are easily obtained. Trash cans, landfills or in yards where these resources are located. Able to manipulate damaged or loosened materials to find refuge, feral pigeons are truly a plague among men. With the many other birds that tend to drive Tennessee locals beyond madness, pigeon bird droppings are always the number one complaint. The droppings of feral pigeons contain high volumes of uric acid, which can cause metal to erode, wooden surfaces to stain, discoloration of paint, and deterioration of brickwork and stones. Tar based roofing material is also negatively impacted.
