Having solar panels is an investment for our homes as it can save you money on electricity prices and also is great for the environment but what happens if you get pesky birds making their home under your solar panels and why do they love our solar panels so much.

 

Birds love being at the highest point due to being protected from various animals and wildlife, stalking of their food source and you have just now made a shelter for the birds to make their nest and keep warm.

 

With birds roosting up on your solar panels and underneath they are making your solar panels work less efficient therefore you really are not saving money by having the solar panels there.

 

Along with the birds come their nonsense with louds chirping, bird debris, bird poop, lice and guess what loves all of this? Rodents, so on top of birds you will get rodents which can lead to electoral wiring being chewed through.

 

A build-up of bird poop which can corrode your solar panels and roof tiles and nesting debris can cause your solar panels to run less efficiently as there is restricted airflow through your solar panels.

 

Did you know that if we experience heavy rainfall then all the nesting debris and poop will slide down to the guttering system and therefore causes blockages in the guttering system which then will cause further issues for you and your property.

 

Did I mention Birds love solar panels!

Birds can become a real nuisance to our humble home or our place of business.

 

Bird droppings and bird nesting materials can have a real negatively impact our humble home or our place of business.

 

Unfortunately, birds can carry over 60 different diseases which can be passed on to us humans and pets.

Birds that congregate around your humble home or place of business also encourages bird mites to go into the roof void and down to us for them to feed on.

 

Here are some of the main reasons why Bird Proofing and Removal Sydney is important

  • Bird droppings and nesting materials can carry over 60 diseases and ectoparasites. Bird droppings are acidic and can corrode building materials.
  • Birds will contaminate any food production and inventory when they roost or nest in warehouses and factories.
  • Bird nests can clog drainage systems and pose a fire risk.
  • Bird droppings can be a liability by creating a slip and fall risk at your humble home or place of business.

We can stop birds from nesting on your roof 100% Guaranteed. Call Redline Pest Control today on 0426 002 007.

 

Health Risks From Birds 

 

Unfortunately, Bird droppings and nesting materials can carry over 60 different diseases that can harm humans and pets. Bird mites can enter through broken tiles on your roof.

 

Bird Mites

 

Bird mites are very small and can be barely visible to the human eye. Bird mites are transparent in colour, which can make them difficult to see on your skin until blood has been digested; once the bird mites digest our blood, they will usually appear reddish rather than be transparent, this is due to bird mites having a blood host that they have recently fed on.

 

Contact with humans or pets usually occurs after birds gain entry in our roof voids of our humble homes or place of business to build their nests for the next breeding season.

 

Bird mite infestations can also occur from birds roosting on the outside of dwellings such as window ledges, chimneys or awnings.

 

Bird mites feed on birds, and with the nesting material used by the birds provides bird mites with an ideal environment in which bird mites will thrive.

 

The bird mites have a very short life cycle but can rapidly infest an area very quickly the lifecycle of a bird mite is usually about seven days.

 

When birds leave the nest or die, many bird mites are left behind for a new suitable host.

 

Bird mites will die within seven days without a blood host from birds. They will bite us humans but can not survive long periods of time without an actual bird host.

 

However, until the infestation of bird mites is controlled the problem will persist.

 

Inventory Damage From Birds

 

Bird Droppings can damage your production lines and can contaminate products in your warehouse, factories or manufacturing plants.

Birds can often be found perching on purlins and rafters in warehouses, factories and storage facilities. Bird droppings in these areas can affect your food safety audits which can cost you your reputation and money.

Property and Equipment Damage

 

Bird droppings can ruin machinery and operating equipment which can cost you more money in the long run by not proofing against birds.

Blocked Drains and Gutters

 

Bird droppings and nesting materials regularly block gutters and drainage systems. It is important to bird proof any areas that birds can cause damage or roost to avoid any of the 60 diseases that they carry.

  • Seeds that are left out for native birds can attract Indian Mynas to your home.
  • Do not leave pet food outside as this will attract Indian Myna birds to your home.
  • Indian Myna birds love to nest in hollow trees, roofs, exotic trees, and the dead fronds of palm trees. To break the nesting cycle block holes in roofs and eaves and keep palm trees trimmed.
  • Remove any pet bowls from outside as this attracts Indian Myna birds.
  • Plant more native trees as it will bring more native birds that Indian Myna birds don’t get along with.
