Water source draws pigeons to Casa Grande community causing illness, property damage

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Article Shared From: TriValleyCentral.com

Courtesy of a Mission Royale resident, Pigeons leave quite a mess on the roofs of some Mission Royale homes last month in Casa Grande.

Written By: Melissa St. Aude

 

When Lyle Roorda bought his home in the Mission Royale community in 2006, he did not anticipate sharing his house with dozens of pigeons.But despite Roorda’s best efforts to eradicate them, the pigeons continue to nest on his roof. At last count, he had at least 30 or 40 pigeons living on top of his house and the mess they create — feathers and droppings as well as the maggots and other insects that live and breed in the bird debris — has become intolerable and a health hazard, he said.

“It’s a major problem,” Roorda said. “And it’s getting worse. The mess they leave behind is sickening.”

Bird Droppings Cause of High E-Coli Counts at Bayfront Beach…

Pier 4 style changes can help Bayfront Beach, public health says 

From: The Hamilton Spectator
Sun Nov 27 2011

Hamilton public health will submit A Tale of Two Beaches to the board of health Monday, backing up the need for structural and bird management changes at Bayfront Park.

Dr. Chris Mackie, associate medical officer of health at Hamilton’s Public Health Services, says the reports supports changes to improve water quality at Bayfront Park — where bird droppings are a major factor in excessive E. coli bacteria counts — and offers the “significant” improvement following such measures at Pier 4 to back it up.

Changes at Pier 4 have resulted in fewer closure days since stakeholders — including the city, Bay Area Restoration Council, public works, public health, the Hamilton Harbour Remedial Action Plan (RAP) and National Water Research Institute — began adding bird control measures and surface drainage capability at Pier 4 in August 2005.

Authorities investigating what role pigeon poop played in man’s death

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

From the National post:

Too much pigeon poo might have caused an awning to fall and kill a man in Australia.

August 18, 2010 – 11:00 am

Could an overabundance of pigeon poop have caused an awning to crash down and kill an Australian man?

That’s what authorities are trying to figure out through a five-day inquest into what caused Craig Taylor to be crushed to death.

Mr. Taylor, 53, had been taking shelter from a storm under a pharmacy’s awning when it collapsed in December, 2007, the Daily Telegraph reports. Dozens of pigeons were apparently nesting in the structure. Live birds were even found in the wreckage.

Authorities think the weight of the pigeons’ droppings, combined with the heavy rain, could have caused the awning to fall.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported in 2008:

A structural examination of Hadley’s Chemist found the cause of collapse was a lack of maintenance, poor workmanship and a large quantity of pigeon droppings.

The droppings had built up and had become saturated by the rain leaking into the roof.

The report found that crucial structural points on the awning were poorly maintained and badly corroded, although this would have been difficult to examine before the collapse.

The coroner’s office is investigating what role store owners and the city have in keeping awnings clear of pigeons, and who exactly should be responsible for the structures’ maintenance.

This wasn’t the first awning collapse in Australia. Six-months earlier another fell in Fairlight, Australia, but no one was injured. There’s no word on whether pigeon poop played a role in that incident.
