Pigeons

Bird Control is Extremely Important and must be addressed as soon as possible…

Troublesome birds like Pigeons, cost individuals and businesses millions of dollars each year in clean-up expense, repairs, and damaged equipment.

The corrosive effects of bird droppings can cause irreversible damage – defacing rooftops, walkways, walls, vehicles and equipment. Bird droppings quickly turn to salt and ammonia; after rain, electrochemical reactions speed up the rusting process. These acidic droppings eat away at paint, concrete and metal, and can eventually cause structural failure.

Pigeons are destructive to property, equipment, and products. They interfere with operations in many ways, endangering themselves and workers. They have been known to entangle themselves, in machinery, block ventilation ducts, cause fires, peck holes in roofing and utility poles, bring down power lines, and cause hazardous and even fatal aircraft bird strikes.

Bird droppings are unsanitary and can render walking surfaces slippery and dangerous, creating unnecessary liabilities. Pollution from bird droppings can enter the human food chain through improper sanitation. Government organizations and health boards such as OSHA and the USDA regularly give citations and fines for bird mess problems. Businesses that fail to correct these situations in a timely manner can face even harsher penalties and may be forced to shut down completely.  Birds are known to carry over sixty transmissible diseases,– some potentially fatal, including Salmonella. Bird droppings help to spread disease when fecal dust enters living areas or when someone enters contaminated spaces and starts breathing in fungal spores.

In 2007, more than 500 people were reported sick, and at least eight died due to salmonella contamination in over 400 popular peanut butter products. It was the largest food recall in FDA history. In the end, a leaky roof was blamed for the sanitation breach, and its highly likely that pest pigeons were the culprit.

Also in 2007, the I-35W Bridge over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Minnesota collapsed due to weak and rusted steel beams. After a more thorough inspection, it was discovered that the structure's framework was covered with corrosive pigeon dung that was eating away at the metal.

According to the National Defense Center for Environmental Excellence (NDCEE), approximately 5,000 bird strikes occur each year, costing the airline industry an estimated $1.5 billion dollars in damages and repairs.

It's clear that Pigeon problems are inconvenient at best, and deadly at worst. 911 Wildlife Control has the technology, experience, state of the art equipment and products that can eliminate any bird nuisance problem you may have.
