High School Pigeon Cull Upsets Students

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

From Perth Now:

Esperance lead scandal

ONLY SLEEPING: Mt Lawley High School students thought sedated pigeons were suffering “agonizing deaths”. Picture: Richard Polden Source: Perth Now

MT LAWLEY Senior High School students were distressed to witness what they believed was the “agonizing death” of pigeons when a bird control program involving sedation was carried out during recess time.

The Guardian Express received an anonymous letter from a student’s parent who was concerned the students had seen the incident which they thought was caused when the pigeons ate “poisoned pellets”.

Education Department infrastructure executive director James Thom confirmed a pest control program was recently carried out while students were in the playground.

“Steps will be taken to ensure that in the future contractors carry out this work while students are inside,” he said.

From Bird-B-Gone:

Using sedatives or poisons to control birds creates an empty space that other birds can fill. It doesn’t address the features attracting birds to the area such a continuous food source -  a scenario often seen on school campuses where students eat lunch.  Had the school installed physical bird deterrents, such as bird spikes, they could have permanently addressed the problem while keeping things calm around campus.

Are Your Hog Facilities Bird-proof?

Monday, August 30th, 2010

From Pork Magazine:

Are Your Hog Facilities Bird-proof?
By Pork news staff  |  Monday, August 30, 2010

//

For years, it’s been widely recognized that waterfowl such as ducks and geese are carriers of avian influenza virus and pose a transmission risk to humans as well as livestock. Now researchers are suggesting that some songbirds also carry AIV.

A team of researchers, including Trevon Fuller, University of California, examined samples from 225 bird species in 41 states. They found the average prevalence of AIV in passerines — or perching birds — is greater than the prevalence in eight other bird groups. Perching birds include sparrows, robins, blackbirds, starlings, jays and finches.

__________________________________________________

From Bird-B-Gone:

Facilities that house and feed animals are a favorite roosting site of pest birds. Often these facilities are open and provide ample rafter areas, food and water needed for survival.  Pest Birds pose a serious health risk, as their droppings carry and transmit disease, such as salmonella. Birds will sit in rafter areas and defecate in feeding troughs or water supplies – posing a direct health risk to the animals.

Feed houses and barns must take measures to protect their livestock from disease by bird proofing their building. Bird Netting is one simple way to remedy such a problem. If you net off a rafter area, birds will simply not be able to land. Netting acts as a physical barrier to block birds. There is heavy duty bird netting that will last 10+ years, and lieghtweight, temporary options.

Bird Gel or Bird Spikes are another great way of keeping birds out of a feed house.  You apply these items to the rafters themselves to keep birds from landing.

To learn more about keeping birds out of hog facilities, barns, feed houses or more, visit Bird-B-Gone at http://www.birdbgone.com or call us direct at 1-800-392-6915 – our sales team can help you choose the right product for your application.

Improper Use of Bird Repellent Leads to Respitory Problems in Building Inhabitants

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

State tries again to fix air quality at Insurance Division

gdornan@nevadaappeal.com

More than a month after efforts to kick the pigeons out of the Insurance Division’s ventilation system resulted in headaches and respiratory problems for employees, officials are making a final push to eliminate the problem.

In the first attempt to fix the problem, a contractor sprayed a grape seed oil-based product into the vents. The pigeons left but the chemical smell caused many of the 80 or so division employees to suffer respiratory and other problems. In fact, the literature on the product, Rejex-It, warned that “prolonged inhalation may lead to respiratory tract irritation.”

The building on Fairview Drive was shut down four days and employees sent home while work began to clear the building’s air.

Hiring a professional to take care of your pest bird problem can mean the difference between successfully deterring birds, and well, not. Many bird deterrents’ success rely on proper installation. There are many factors to consider including the species of bird, whether or not they are nesting and the location of the problem.

Misuse of products or repellents can, as we see above, sometimes negatively effect the environment or make a pest bird situation worse. Luckily there are Pest Control Professionals who specialize in pest bird eradication. Bird-B-Gone has a network of “authorized installers” that can help properly eliminate a bird problem in commercial, industrial and residential settings. If you need to hire a bird control professional, call Bird-B-Gone at 1-800-392-6915 and we will put you in contact with an authorized installer in your area.

WebMD — Bacteria on pigeons said to cause more diarrhea than Salmonella

Spanish researchers find two bugs on feral pigeons which cause illness in humans

WebMD Health News

Reviewed by Dr Rob Hicks

By Nicky Broyd

22nd June 2010 – Sampling of pigeons captured on the streets of Madrid has revealed the bacteria they carry. Researchers writing in BioMed Central’s open access journal Acta Vetinaria Scandinavica found two bugs that were highly prevalent in the bird population and which cause illness in humans: Chlamydia psittaci and Campylobacter jejuni.

The study

Fernando Esperón from the Animal Health Research Center, in Madrid, worked with a team of researchers to analyse blood and enema samples taken from 118 pigeons caught using gun-propelled nets.

The study found extremely high prevalence of bacteria which can be transferred from feral pigeons to humans.  Esperón said in news release there was no way to tell if the birds were infected: “This leads to the hypothesis that pigeons act as asymptomatic reservoirs of Chlamydia psittaci and Campylobacter jejuni. These birds may therefore pose a public health risk to the human population.”

Bird Control for Commercial Applications

Monday, September 21st, 2009

Building owners and businesses spend millions of dollars annually to deal with infestations and the problems associated with pest birds. The risks associated with these pests increase year after year as bird populations continue to grow in both inner city and urban environments. The fact is, these pests are out of their natural element and without proper bird control measures, they can wreak havoc on commercial buildings and the people around them.

Perhaps the most obvious of problems are the droppings pest birds leave, which are not only unsightly, but can cause accelerated deterioration of buildings, structures and statues. Limestone is particularly susceptible, not just to a bird’s droppings, but the acid secretion produced by the fungi that live in them. Cleaning and restoring buildings so damaged can be expensive. Nests and droppings can quickly clog gutters and down pipes. Left unchecked, these bird by-products can lead to timber and structural damage, unsightly decor, and huge repair costs. Pigeons nesting around commercial air conditioning units deposit fecal matter that can get sucked into ducts, grilles and vents, damaging these expensive systems. Bird droppings that accumulate on ledges, sills and signage are unsightly and ruin the image of a business, especially an eatery. Droppings deposited on pavements, entrances and fire escapes makes them hazardous as pedestrians may slip and fall on them, creating a huge legal liability to commercial property owners. One quickly can see why bird control has become so vital to commercial building owners.

But bird control solves other problems as well. There’s the incessant and irritating noise pest birds produce whey they gather in sizeable numbers. They not only annoy maintenance workers, but can be distracting to visitors in hotels, hospitals and office complexes. Another problem is the offensive odor many birds produce—both in droppings and nesting—a particular nuisance to restaurants with outdoor service. Droppings also spoil finished products in loading bays and storage areas. They can severely stain and damage goods, ruin expensive paintwork, and mar the appearance of costly finished goods, metal panels, and stonework. Droppings can also eat into and destroy wood, paper and cardboard packaging.

Pest birds can be a health hazard, carrying and transmitting any of 60 known diseases. Sparrows and Feral Pigeons can carry bacteria causing Salmonellosis. Feral Pigeons carry Ornithosis, which is similar to viral pneumonia. Birds, bird droppings and their nesting materials contain insects and mites. These insects can damage property, stored foods and fabrics.

As many building owners have learned, keeping pigeons and other pest birds away from commercial buildings is not an easy thing to do. These days, proper bird control takes more than a plastic owl or two to scare away pests. What to do?

Thankfully, there are a number of effective and humane bird control products to keep pest birds off your property. Most are maintenance free and easy to install. Bird spikes, for example, are ideal for pigeons and other large birds. Some have spikes made of strong, rigid unbreakable polycarbonate. Others have stainless steel spikes. Another useful bird control product is the bird spider. It’s ideal for awnings and patio covers. The spider arms move with the breeze, keeping pest birds from landing. Most of these deterrents are sturdy and stable, come in a variety of diameters, and install easily. They also won’t harm the birds.

Another effective bird control solution is bird netting. It’s ideal for a broad range of commercial uses, including signs, warehouses, courtyards, canopies, airplane hangars and rooftops. With its ability to control all species of birds, bird netting is often prescribed by architects. Some products in this category are U.V. stabilized, flame resistant and rot and waterproof. The webbing is usually available in a variety of mesh sizes to deter sparrow, starlings, pigeons, seagulls and larger birds.

A simple, easy-to-install bird control device that discourages bird pests from landing and nesting is the bird slope. These angled, slippery panels are ideal for eaves, ledges, beams and other 90-degree areas where pest birds tend to nest and roost. Also simple and easy to apply are bird gels. This bird control measure creates a sticky surface that birds hate.

Finally, there are the higher –tech bird control solutions, known as electric-track systems.  Ideal for deterring all types of pest birds, these are easily mounted on ledges, signs, rooftops, and flat or curved surfaces. They discourage birds from landing by conveying a mild electric shock that’s harmless to birds. They also alter a bird’s habits to nest or feed. These systems are low profile and almost invisible. Be sure to get a flow-through design to prevent water from damming up on rooftops and other surfaces. Look for corrosion-resistant products that can stand up to alkali and acidic environments.  The bottom line: bird control is good for your business.
