Birds Pest Control Services Sydney
Birds are pretty and are considered harmless. Very few will attempt to view them as pests or a nuisances but that’s exactly what they can be. If you have birds nesting of your property, you need to make sure you either monitor the situation and prevent it from happening in the future, or remove the bird and encourage them to find another home. At Knock-Down Pest Control, we’ve noticed that clients often underestimate how much trouble birds can cause and are forced to pay for repairs down the line.
Signs of a bird infestation
A couple of birds visiting your property every once in a while isn’t a cause for concern. If the birds are pretty and their songs are melodic, you might even enjoy the visit. However, too much of anything can be bad. Here are some signs that indicate you have a serious bird infestation problem and it needs to be addressed immediately:
Bird droppings aren’t just unsightly, but they’re also very corrosive. If you don’t clean them immediately, they can damage your building material and lead to expensive repairs. For example, bird droppings on roofing shingles can weaken the seal on the tiles and eventually cause them to deteriorate.
Birds, especially nesting birds, can generate intense odour that can spread throughout your property. Their droppings along with the food they bring in for their chicks can decompose and let out a foul smell.
Birds will attract insects and insects with attract birds. This is a vicious cycle that never ends and is one of the most common signs of bird infestation. If you see increased amounts of insect activity, you might have bird infestation. Birds will attract fleas, flies, Cockroaches, and even mice.
As mentioned before, one or two birds aren’t a concern but if you have several birds that don’t leave your property at all, you have an infestation.
