Pigeons, Feral Birds, Magpies and others
Depending the bird species that we are speaking, birds can be responsible for a number of issues. Some of these animals might eat the crops in your garden and others can cause damage to your property. Whatever a situation might be, your response should be quick and using the right product for bird control is of the utmost importance. For instance, many bird species, especially pigeons have very acidic urine and their droppings can cause corrosion and their debris such as feathers and nesting material can cause blockages in your gutters and ventilation systems. Some bird species can even get inside your walls and do extensive amount of damage or just make terrible mess. Additionally, if a bird dies while being in your walls, your whole property might be filled with unpleasant smell. Some kinds of birds can be bacteria and parasite carriers which can cause diseases such as encephalitis, salmonella, meningitis and toxoplasmosis. Birds can:
Do damage to your property by removing roof tiles. They can block your gutters and build nests in your walls where they will leave their droppings which will cause corrosion to surrounding materials.
Have aggressive behaviour and attack you or your guests. The aggression usually occurs during their breeding season or when they have their young.
Carry various species of fleas, ticks, lice and mites which can spread various diseases and be a serious health hazard.
By taking bird control and management measures at early stages will help you to prevent any damage associated with birds. Here at Masters Pest Control Sydney, we are experts in the field of bird control and have a various range of cost effective control measures that will take care of the problem without disrupting your everyday business.
Although birds can be fun to watch and observe, and many bird species eat other pests, certain birds can wreak havoc and spread diseases if their population gets out of control. Many species of bird can be lovely to watch, and many can even be beneficial as they eat other pests and pollinate plants, certain species can also cause damage and spread disease if the population gets out of control – so it’s essential to put effective bird control into place.
Bird related problems

Birds are known as a safe place for various types of fleas and bird mites which are feeding in their nest and when the birds leave, they switch their focus on us. The bites caused by bird mites are quite painful and they are known to breed quickly which means that the infestation can happen in matter of days. Birds are known to spread their droppings on buildings and footpaths and when wet, their droppings are a safety and health hazard to people. When they find their entrance to factories and other commercial premises, especially those that produce food, they can do serious damage to owners as they contaminate the area.
