Birds can be more than just a noisy annoyance. The droppings of birds, including gulls, sparrows, starlings, grackles, and pigeons can cause property damage by eating away at the painted finishes of buildings. Cleaning up bird droppings is messy and unpleasant as well as expensive. Nests of birds can inhibit proper ventilation and be a fire hazard.
Pigeons in particular are a major problem in New York City. Pigeons enjoy eating bread, popcorn, peanuts and other food scraps readily found on the streets and in our trash. Signs of a pigeon infestation include seeing their nests on ledges, hearing the cooing noise they make, and seeing excessive droppings around the exterior of your home or business. Pigeons nest in large flocks so their presence can be extremely irritating since there are so many of them in one location. Not only are they annoying, but they can also be a health hazard as their droppings carry diseases like cryptococcosis, toxoplasmosis, and salmonella.
