Have you been noticing an increase in the number of birds around your business? Or perhaps you have even had a negative experience involving pest birds and a customer or an employee. Pest bird problems can result in damages to facility and product as well as injury. And since image and reputation are extremely important for companies trying to grow or maintain their brand, it is important to learn how to control pest birds before they negatively impact your business.
When birds find an area to nest they will continue to use that area for generations to come. Their nest building activities as well as their droppings can lead to extensive structural damages to buildings. Many business owners report damages or contamination to their gardens, water features, dwellings, roofs, signage, and even machinery. And what’s worse, the contamination from bird waste can lead to serious health complications, even fatalities.
The best way to ensure that you will not have to worry about birds intruding is to practice bird prevention methods as well as maintaining a commercial bird control service. The following are bird prevention tips from the knowledgeable bird control professionals at McCauley Services:
Avoid heavy landscaping including vast gardens as these will only provide a food source for pest birds.
Stay away from water features such as fountains. Even though these look nice outside, they will only become a bird bath and popular hangout spot for pest birds.
Keep all windows and doors closed unless they have screens so that you do not have to worry about birds flying into your facility.
By following these bird prevention tips you may reduce the risk of pest bird infestations. But keep in mind that preventative measures alone are not always enough to battle the birds.
