Did you know that all birds are federally protected in the US except for three? Starlings, pigeons and sparrows are not protected and may be removed of eradicated by a pest management professional when they are causing problems. For all other nuisance birds, pest management professionals must obtain a special permit or licence from the state's fish and wildlife department for any removal.
Did you also know that pest bird droppings can create a health hazards? A roost of nuisance birds can create a large pile of droppings resulting in hazardous walking areas and the acids in the droppings may corrode a car's finish.
But, more importantly, over time a roost full of dried droppings becomes a breathing hazard. Fungal spores may grow rapidly in such droppings, and if the pile of droppings is disturbed, the spores ca become airborne and aerosolized and when breathed in, this can lead to a lung disease called histoplasmosis.
Horizon Pest Control has the breathing equipment and experience to safely remove these roots with dried droppings. If you suspect an old bird roost full of droppings in your attic space or living areas, let us safely remove it for you.
