Bird Control Proves Necessary for Public Health Concern
Vicious health risks can come from disease organisms that can grow in bird droppings, feathers and debris. Bird droppings can be stubborn messes, besides, they cause slip-and-fall accidents. What’s more, bird droppings cam carry numerous pathogens that can cause diseases.
Histoplasmosis is caused by a fungus found in the States. Both humans and animals can be affected. The disease is transmitted to humans by airborne fungus spores from soil contaminated by pigeon droppings and starling droppings (as well as from the droppings of other birds and bats). The fungus has been found in droppings (particularly from bats) alone, such as in an attic.
Transmissible bird diseases can be associated with pigeons, geese, starling and house sparrows.
Bird fecal matter and feathers can have devastating effects on the heating and cooling components and indoor air quality of a commercial facility. Pigeon problems can affect employees, maintenance personnel and potentially customers.
