Florida Bird Control & Commercial Removal Company
Many casual people don't think of birds as pests. However, if you own a commercial building plagued by a bird
problem, you know just what a pest they can be. The primary problem is that they leave their droppings everywhere.
They also pose a biohazard, often in public places. I've worked on many commercial buildings, often open-air gas
stations or car repair shops, in which pigeons have really befowled the place. They also love to roost on signs at
shopping plazas, and they sure make a real mess of your sidewalk. They can also be noisy and unsightly, and lower the
cleanliness and value of your property.
To the right you will see a photo of pigeons that I captured on the roof of a commercial property with an overabundance of pigeons.
They were pooping everywhere, and the customers didn't like them one bit.
||Pigeons are probably the most common nuisance bird. Everyone knows that pigeons have adapted to life in the city,
and they seem to be everywhere in urban environments. Unfortunately, the bird lovers of the world feed them, and they have
developed a dependence upon people, thus reinforcing their dependency upon urban areas. They roost on signs, ledges, almost
anywhere, and they bring nesting material and leave droppings everywhere. Pigeons are swimming with filth and disease, as
everyone knows. Pigeons can carry
or transmit: encephalitis, histoplasmosis, Newcastle disease, pigeon ornithosis, cryptococcosis, pigeon coccidiosis, toxoplasmosis,
pseudo-tuberculosis, and salmonella food poisoning. Pigeons can carry fleas, ticks, mites, and other parasites.
||Sparrows and Starlings often choose to nest in buildings. They can be a nuisance in numbers, and bring along quite a bit
of nesting material, which in the right (wrong) spot can lead to fire hazard or clogged drain pipes. The uric acid in their droppings can
lead to structural damage' and also pose a health risk. They can carry a number of parasites, like all birds. I usually don't have to deal
with these birds, but Florida nuisance pest licenses authorize bird control of these species.
||Woodpeckers cause problems from time to time when they hammer a hole in your wood-sided house. I certainly won't kill or
harm these fine birds, but I know you don't want them hammering holes in your house. I've worked on several woodpecker jobs. I basically
hang a giant net, extruded a foot or so from the wall of your house, to prevent them from landing and drumming. They usually peck for insects,
but often pound away as a territorial signal. I've been to a few homes in which woodpeckers have pecked holes and made permanent nests
inside. The pounding can be a real headache, and I can make it go away, while not harming the bird(s).
Sometimes a bird will get stuck in a large building, like a store, or a warehouse. Call me for bird control, and I'll get it out safely!
