About urban birds
Under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 all wild birds, their nests and eggs are protected. Some birds, in some situations are regarded as pests and can present limited exception within this act. Once all non-lethal methods have been considered, specific birds can be killed under the General License.
Why control Urban Birds?
Birds carry a variety of diseases such as E.Coli, Listeria and Ornithosis that can be transmitted to man not only from fouling but also the bird themselves. When dry, pigeon fouling can become airborne in small particles, which can lead to respiratory complaints such as psittacosis.
Bird droppings are acidic and can corrode stonework, brickwork, insulation and even metals. Nesting materials can block chimneys, flues and guttering, causing damage to buildings as water overflows from blocked gutters.
Buildings covered in fouling look unpleasent and can smell. They often reflect a poor image to potential clients or tenants. Potential customers observing a heavy bird infestation on a premises may not want to do business with you or even move into a new property.
Other issues that have been linked closely to bird activity are parasites such as mites, ticks, fleas, beetles and even cockroaches! So if you a parasitic infestation, which has present a challenge in eradication you could have a current or past problems with birds.
