Bird Control for Your Alamo Heights, TX Home; Damage from Roosting Birds & More

When pest control comes to mind, birds are not the first things people think of. We in fact receive many bird calls throughout the year. There are more than 600 species of birds in the state of Texas. Some of the most common found in the San Antonio area are pigeons, woodpeckers, swallows, owls, crows, hawks and seagulls. While some birds pose little to no threat to your home, others stand out as a real nuisance. Bird droppings around your home are not just unsightly but they pose various health risks as well. Bird nests are fire hazards in certain areas because the materials they use to build them are highly flammable. A Five Star Termite & Pest Control can help you to eliminate your bird problems, as well as help you to prevent their presence in the future.

Roof, Deck Building & Car Damage Caused by Roosting Birds

Birds can make a real mess of things. A bird’s primary focus is to seek a safe place to roost near a food and water source. Certain types of birds like nesting together while others seem to roost alone. They make their nests in attics, under roof tiles, solar panels, chimneys, soffits, sheds, trees and other areas of your property that provide shelter. If left untreated, birds will set up shop and cause costly damage. Their droppings are highly acidic and cause damage to any surface they come in contact with, especially those that aren’t cleaned regularly. Their droppings damage paint on vehicles, porches, decks and any other area they hang out around. Pigeons are especially common in this area and cause a lot of damage where they are able to reside. Not only do they cause a ton of damage where they live but they leave us to clean up after them constantly. There is nothing like pressure washing your deck, only to walk out the next morning and find bird droppings all over the place again.

Is Bird Poop Toxic to Humans? What are the Health Dangers of Birds?

As if the damage to our homes wasn’t enough. Some birds and other flying mammals are known to carry diseases such as; Coccidiosis, Histoplasmosis, Cryptococcus, Toxoplasmosis, Encephalitis, Salmonellas, Erysipeloid, Pigeon Ornithosis, Avian Tuberculosis, Transmissible Gastroenteritis, Chlamydiosis, Trichomoniasis, and Acariasis to name a few. Birds are also carriers of ectoparasites such as lice, fleas or mites as well. Birds travel far and wide and pick up these parasites or diseases and spread them where they go either by direct contact, contact with their feces, or contact with their nesting materials.
