Birds in a commercial building are nuisance and negatively affect the facility and the people who are working in and around it.
Millions of dollars are spent to stop the birds from creating damage to automobiles, machinery & ventilation systems, and contaminating food. Bird droppings contain nitrogen in abundance, which causes corrosion to various building materials, especially metals.
The fecal material of a bird also contains organisms that can cause severe problems like cryptococcus, ectoparasites and histoplasmosis. These are diseases which lead to high fever, coughing and chest pain. If they are left unattended, the disease may spread to lungs and other organs leading to death.
Fortunately, you can manage these birds through several commercial bird control methods. Usually, these are provided by a registered pest controller who not only chases away the annoying birds but also implements measures to keep future infestations at bay.
The Removal Process
The first step for controlling a bird infestation is proper inspection. Identify the areas which are used by the birds for feeding, nesting, roosting and loitering. Do not forget to inspect at a regular interval as bird activity changes depending on the time of the day.
The second step would be to make your facility unattractive to birds. You can do this by installing nets, bird wire, gels and coils at the place of infestation. When the birds find your facility uncomfortable for nesting, they will leave the place and make their nests somewhere else.
Another optional method can be setting up traps and using chemical treatments.
A pest controller is the best personnel who determines which kind of removal process is suitable for your property, depending on the type of birds and infestations.
Guarding the roof
Some birds prefer roosting on flat surfaces and can be found on roof ledges. Once they make their nest, it will be hard for you to discourage them through various repellents and relocation techniques. This is why, it is recommended that you take action before they turn your roof into a roosting platform. Regularly inspect you roof tops and sweep away any standing water after heavy showers. It can serve as an impromptu bird bath.
Remove any free meals
Birds are not just attracted by the pattern of your property, they can also come if they find a free source of food. Clear away any uncovered food and make sure that trash bins are kept covered at all times.
Hiring a good bird pest controller eliminates all kinds of birds from your property. They are the best personnel to understand the problems caused by the pest and implement countermeasures accordingly.
