Bird Control is an INVESTMENT? Pest Birds Cost Businesses Every Year

Bird Control?  Why should we care about pest birds?  It seems the latest issue concerning property management and building maintenance companies is Pest Birds.  Every year millions of dollars are spent cleaning up after and repairing the damage caused by pest birds such as pigeons, sea gulls, crows and other urban birds.  Not only are these problems unsightly, but also pest birds and their feces can spread 60 plus transmittable diseases.  Safety, sanitation and health hazards caused by bird droppings can pose serious liability risks, and left untreated, can lead to accidents and lawsuits.  Bird feces, bird nests and debris can also create a bad public image with tenants and patrons.

UNION TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — It’s a dirty job, but later this summer, a crew of steeplejacks will help Isabella County’s Union Township deal with the unintended consequences of the mobile communications revolution.

The crew from Fedewa Inc. of Nashville, Mich., will climb atop the township’s water tower at Broadway Road and U.S. 127 with high-intensity power washers. That tower, located strategically along the freeway near Mount Pleasant, is valuable “vertical real estate” for mobile communications providers, and a forest of antennas sits atop of water tower’s bell.

Those antennas are great places for birds to roost. They’ve also left behind substantial signs that they’ve been there in the form of, um, organic material, according to township Public Works Coordinator Kim Smith.

“We should clean there every three to five years,” Smith said.

Five years’ worth of bird droppings can start to damage the paint on the water towers, Smith said. Painting a water tower isn’t cheap; typically, it might cost $100,000.
