As we mentioned in the Bird Fouling section of our site, pest birds and their droppings can carry a wide range of infectious diseases.
They can also carry salmonella bacteria which can be found in the droppings of pigeons, sparrows and starlings.
No fewer than 50 different ectoparasites are carried by birds; these include bedbugs, fleas, ticks, which can all bite man.
We mention this because infestations of this type often occur AFTER bird droppings and birds have been cleared from an area.
The reason is simple, while someone has cleared up the droppings and moved the birds on, the bacteria and some insect pests remain and with their previous hosts gone, they go looking for a new host and home.
This is why when it comes to cleaning up after pests or their droppings it makes sense to use a specialised company which has wide experience and always ensures that once the cleaning and nest clearance etc., has been completed the appropriate pest control and bacterial treatments have been completed.
This ensures the complete eradication of the problem and that the areas can be safely used in the future by our client’s staff, without fear of any infection or infestation by biting insect pests.
