There is nothing wrong with having birds in your property. What could be alarming is if the birds are taking over your property and that your home and your health is becoming at risk? Common birds like house sparrows, starling geese and pigeons can become pests when they create nests and rear young around your home.
If you have noticed an increase in their population and have spotted nests, you may consider contacting a pest control expert so that they can effectively and humanely do bird control. Here are more reasons why bird control is necessary:
Bird waste carries different diseases and they may also be carrying ticks, fleas, and mites. Bird wastes can also infect the water and surfaces from which the birds dropped them which could be transmitted to people or animals who get in contact with it.
Birds usually create birds nests, and if they are infesting your property, this could mean that they may be staying on the vents, rafters, gutters, ledgers and locations that are pretty much elevated. The problem with this is once they stay in that place, you can expect droppings as well.
Nests might clog the vent and the dropping might contaminate your home. Debris made by the nest can keep water from properly flowing during storms. If they build nests near electrical installations, they can also damage the wiring that could cause short circuits and interruption to your power supply.
