Birds are everywhere; there’s no escaping them. However, there is controlling them, especially when they take up residence in your place of business. They can wreak havoc on your livelihood. In this guide, you’ll learn what kinds of birds pester local businesses, the problems they can create, why DIY methods won’t work to control the bird population, and why you need help from a professional Rochester pest control wildlife management expert like RodentX Wildlife Control.

Types Of Pest Birds That Flock To Rochester Businesses

Two common species of birds that can create problems for your business are woodpeckers and pigeons. Woodpeckers are a federally protected species, so it may be illegal for you to try to attempt any bird control measures with them. They’re well known for their incessant pecking on wood and metal surfaces. Pigeons, on the other hand, are plentiful. A flock of them living in or around your place of business can easily grow into a major problem. 

Fortunately, RodentX Wildlife Control knows how to control a bird population properly. We can also remediate the damage birds have caused. We can remove insulation and drywall that’s been damaged by the birds, clean and sanitize the affected area, and replace the insulation and drywall.

All The Problems Pest Birds Can Create For Your Business

Woodpeckers and pigeons can both cause major problems for your business. First, birds can transmit a multitude of diseases through their droppings, including:

  • Cryptococcosis 
  • Histoplasmosis
  • Psittacosis
  • Salmonellosis
  • Toxoplasmosis

They can also carry fleas, ticks, lice, and mites, which come with their own host of diseases that can be transmitted to humans, including:

  • Anaplasmosis
  • B. miyamoto disease
  • Babesiosis
  • Bourbon virus
  • Ehrlichiosis
  • Heartland virus
  • Lyme disease
  • Powassan virus
  • Tularemia

Birds’ droppings can also be corrosive, ruining steel or other metal they come in contact with and artificially aging stone or concrete. Their droppings are also the source of many slip-and-fall accidents.  

Woodpeckers also cause physical damage to your business. They peck into wooden structures in search of the insects they eat, including wood-boring beetles and carpenter ants. They also peck at metal structures when they are drumming, part of their mating rituals and communication methods with other woodpeckers that may be nearby. The damage they cause in the metal parts of your business is not insignificant; their beaks are hard and sharp and can dent or even develop holes as a result of their drumming.

If you see any signs of woodpeckers, pigeons, or other birds nesting around your business, it’s vital that you call a professional bird control service such as RodentX Wildlife Control. We know the safest, most effective way to rid your property of these nuisance species.

Do-It-Yourself Bird Control Can Be Less Than Effective

You may think you can enact sufficient bird control methods yourself. However, we’ve learned over our decade of experience in the wildlife management industry that birds are smarter than most people give them credit for. For example, fake predator birds, scare balloons, and plastic snakes will only work so long. Eventually, the birds will realize that there’s no real danger and return to congregate on your property.

Plus, as we noted above, woodpeckers are federally protected. Some birds are even on the endangered species list. So if they’re your problem, you need professional bird control near you to take care of them properly.
