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.
