3 Types of Problem Birds
In and around your home, birds are delightful! When the first blue jay appears, it’s a sure sign of spring. Some birds, however, cause serious contamination issues with their droppings and shedding of their feathers, and nests.
Birds, like pigeons, mynas and sparrows, are a serious nuisance. Bird droppings are corrosive and foul. Birds and their droppings are associated with many human diseases. Other pests can hitchhike on birds and even live in their nests. Ticks, mites, fleas, lice, mealworms, carpet & hide beetles, clothes moths, carrion flies & beetles and furniture & deathwatch beetles are often found alongside birds. These other pests easily spread from the birds to your home/business.
