Bird Dropping Removal


Avian influenza, or Bird Flu, has certainly made the news. Interestingly, Bird flu is not common amoung people because the virus does not usually infect humans. Most cases of avian influenza infection in humans have resulted from contact with infected poultry or surfaces contaminated with excretions from infected birds. Generally, it is the bird droppings that people most often encounter.

Although unpleasant, we are not so much worried about being splattered upon by a bird loafing overhead as we are about accumulations of bird droppings on the street, ledge, beam or other structure.

As bird droppings dry and particles are picked up by the wind, we worry that nearby pedistrians or building occupants breath in the fungus-laddened matter. We see that scenario way too often at entryways to buildings or where birds roost under rooftop ventilation systems. Thousands of people are exposed without knowing and can develop respiratory problems without having a clue as to how this occurred. Illnesses include histoplasmosis, Cryptococcosis, Psittacosis and parrot fever.

If you notice bird droppings around your work environment, favorite parking garage, school building or shopping center, speak up. Tell someone that you are concerned, as well you should be, and that you want something done about the bird droppings and a permanent resolution for bird dropping removal. Birds can be safely excluded without harming a single feather and you can help eliminate an unhealthy environment.
