LOUISVILLE, Ky. —

//

A local road was partially shut down Tuesday night as crews worked to clean up massive amounts of pigeon droppings from under an overpass.

Brownsboro Road beneath Interstate 265 was down to one lane in both directions from 6:30 until 10 p.m. Tuesday.”We just have some areas where the pigeons roost a lot and the bird droppings, they start to mound up. They build up quite a bit,” said Andrea Clifford, a spokeswoman for the Kentucky Department of Highways. And the pigeon droppings were not scattered — the median under the overpass was covered in a thick layer of the stuff.”It’s more of a sanitation issue. We get complaints about it and go out and do it,” Clifford said.

From Bird-B-Gone:

Pigeon droppings can end up costing communities thousands of dollars per year – just for clean-up. Bird deterrents like the Bird-B-Gone Bird Spikes or Bird Net 2000 could be installed to block birds from getting back to these areas, saving this county time and money. Bird-B-Gone sells a complete line of effective and humane bird control products to help solve virtually any pest bird problem. To learn more, visit us online at http://www.birdbgone.com

Bird Proofing for Architects and Engineers

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Whether you’re planning a hospital or hotel, an office building or retail complex, clients are increasingly expressing concern over bird defacement and damage. While the building or structure may look magnificent when completed, without effective bird proofing measures, pest birds soon invade to poop all over signs, roofs and beautiful facades.

Pigeons are probably the worst offenders, with each bird averaging about 25 pounds of droppings annually. Multiply that times several hundred birds per location and you’ve got quite a mess on your hands. Hawks and swallows may occasionally cause unexpected and unusual pest bird problems. And blackbirds and crows have certainly done their share of damage. Even woodpeckers have been known to peck unsightly holes into wood facades while digging for insects or to simply communicate with other woodpeckers. Without bird proofing, your beautiful building can lose its luster fairly quickly.

As most people know, much of the damage done by birds is caused by bird droppings. The acidity in these droppings can severely degrade most stone and metal materials, eventually reaching substrate areas to cause irreparable damage. Birds are often drawn in large flocks to the nooks, crannies and porticos of structures. They like to build nests on roof ledges, windowsills, and building projections. And they enjoy perching and pooping all over signs, statues, trusses and beams. These areas not only offer high visibility from which to observe potential food sources, but they provide shelter and protection from ground-based predators.
