November/ December Issue 2011

You have birds. Whether its pigeons roosting on window sills or gulls nesting near rooftop A.C. units, you know the are creating a problem that must be addressed.

Where Do You Start?
Many facilities pay for landscaping, window washing and other general services to help maintain the appearance and functionality of a building. But what about bird control? The first step is acknowledging the potential hazards birds and bird droppings can create.

Bruce Donoho, Owner of Bird•B•Gone, Inc., a U.S. manufacturer of bird control products, says birds can cause considerable problems for buildings. “The build up of bird droppings and nesting materials can pose a health risk for building tenants, especially if found near ventilation systems. Bird droppings carry disease and those most susceptible are people with compromised immune systems which include the young, elderly, and those with chronic illness. Bird droppings can also corrode building materials and machinery, ruin stored product and cost a business thousands of dollars every year for clean-up.”

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

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.

Bird Netting…an Effective, Humane Bird Deterrent

Monday, November 9th, 2009

Written By: Alex Kecskes

NetCourtThere are songbirds, lovebirds and pet birds. And then there are pest birds. Birds we can all do without. Birds we don’t want to harm–we just want them to stay away. One way to do that is the subject of this article.

Bird Netting for Facilities Managers

If you’re a facilities or plant manager, you undoubtedly know that pest birds can cost you a ton of money and aggravation . They can easily invade your aircraft hangar, factory or warehouse, gathering by the hundreds in eaves, canopies and other large covered areas. Support beams make ideal landing, roosting and nesting areas for these pest birds. If you don’t keep them out with deterrents like bird netting, you’ll have to contend with all sorts of problems.

One of the biggest problems with pest birds is bird droppings. Aside from being unsightly and unhealthy, droppings can stop up gutters and down pipes. They can also “freeze up” ceiling windows and vents, as well as rooftop turbine ventilators and siding windows. Bird droppings can eat into corrugated metal surfaces, cover light sensors and security cameras, even block out those new solar panels you just installed to save energy. In fact, the acid in bird droppings can eat into electrical equipment to create a fire hazard. If you manage  a warehouse, bird droppings can spoil finished products in loading bays and storage areas. They can damage goods, and ruin the appearance of expensive finished goods. And something few facilities managers think about are slip-and-fall hazards created by bird droppings–this can become a costly legal liability should a worker or visitor become injured.
