Birds have their place, but it’s certainly not on the roof of your Sarasota business. While these creatures can be beautiful and inspiring, they can also be obnoxious and even dangerous. Birds can cause a slew of health, safety, and property damage issues when they roost on your building. When birds become pests, it’s time to seek professional pest control in Sarasota.
Why Birds Are Attracted To Your Business
Nuisance birds prefer buildings with lots of resting and nesting locations. If pigeons or other birds have taken a liking to your commercial building, it likely offers several spaces for the birds to comfortably roost and safely build nests.
Birds will often choose buildings with openings and flat surfaces. These areas make it easy to land, nest, and simply hang out with their bird buddies. Window sills, wall voids, and eaves all make excellent nesting locations for pigeons and other birds. It isn’t always possible to change these aspects of your building, but a bird control service can provide solutions for deterring birds.
Birds may also be drawn to your business if there are areas of standing water on the property. Easy access to food, such as garbage cans or people feeding the birds, can also bring birds to your business.
At Rodent Solutions, we provide bird control for many types of nuisance birds, including pigeons, crows, geese, starlings, and gulls. It’s important to remove and prevent birds on your property, as they can cause several problems for your business.
The Problem With Birds Nesting Around Your Business
Birds on your property aren’t a problem you should ignore; they can cause health risks, safety issues, and property damage.
Birds are carriers of bacteria, pathogens, and parasites. Pigeons, the most common nuisance bird, carry numerous diseases, including salmonella, toxoplasmosis, and cryptococcosis. Birds can also be infested with other pests such as ticks, lice, and fleas and can introduce these parasites to your property.
Bird droppings can also cause other issues, including making people slip and injure themselves. Bird feces is acidic and can damage statues, fountains, and structures.
A large number of birds on your property is bad for business. Without prompt bird control service, bird populations will only grow larger and become more difficult to handle. In the next section, we’ll explore some bird control solutions for your Sarasota property.
