Bird Control and Management

Birds are lovely creatures that can be very pleasant to have in a community. They can bring harmony and balance to the ecosystem and the residential community as well. But once their population becomes uncontrollable, they can become pests to a home. This is why often times bird control and management is needed.

Birds can be attracted to an area if they see they can have food and shelter in that place. Throughout history, various bird species have lived near human dwelling places to gather grains from crops or their gardens. They have also found it, at times, to be more convenient to build nests on roofs of houses.

 

What Makes Them Bad?

If they are kept in a manageable population, birds should not be harmful to humans. However, they can be a danger if their population has grown to uncontrollable proportions.

Bird droppings can cause many problems to houses. If left on the roof for a long period of time, the acidic content of the droppings can create holes in the roofs.

Aside from the property damage they could cause, birds can also be carriers of diseases as exemplified by some cases of bird-transmitted flu and diseases. Their nests built on rooftops can cause some problems as these can be fire hazards. Dry twigs, dead leaves and branches can easily spark in extreme heat. These nests can also be breeding grounds for other pests such as lice and fleas that can then transfer to inside the house.
