FACT: Birds can be a significant pest in food premises, such as food storage warehouses, food factories and bakeries. They often gain entry through loading bay areas or damaged roofing.
Pigeons are hosts to parasitic pests such as ticks, fleas and bird mites, which can spread to people. The insects live on the birds and their droppings but when the birds leave the roost the parasites can invade buildings in search of a new food source. Pigeons and gulls also harbour some nasty diseases, which could make you seriously ill:
Bird debris such as feathers, fouling and nesting materials can block guttering and degrade roofing materials, which can lead to internal leaks and associated maintenance costs.
Blocked guttering from bird debris can also lead to standing water, which is then an added attractant for the pest birds who can drink from here in relative safety. The standing water may also act as a breeding ground for flying and biting insects, which can become very active during warmer summer months.
Bird faeces is particularly corrosive and will result in damage to roofing and building materials as well as any plant machinery on roofs. Deceased birds decomposing on roofs or ledges can lead to secondary insect infestations such as blow flies. The larvae of textile pests such as varied carpet beetle and leather beetle will feed on feather debris, but can migrate inside a building as the infestation grows.
