The fundamental requirements that birds have are the same as other pests, for example food, water and harborage. Many food processing facilities offer all three in abundance as well as other factors that can attract birds, including:
Of grain, flour or other ingredients from the roof-top all the way down to surrounding grounds
Very Tall Structures
Such as grain elevators or towering buildings that naturally appeal to cliff-dwelling birds like pigeons
Covered Roof Areas
With good exposures for flocking birds to find sun or shade
WHY BIRD CONTROL IS IMPORTANT
Bird droppings contain feces, urine and can carry about 60 different pathogens – birds are vectors of disease.
Building and Equipment Damage
Bird droppings are highly acidic and they etch their image into surfaces.
Eliminate time consuming and costly pressure washing by elimination the source.
Bird droppings, when fresh, are slippery and are thus a slip and fall hazard when people walk through them.
Bird Droppings damage and degrade today’s expensive rooftop materials. Nesting materials can clog equipment air intakes and exhausts as well as drains.
“Dirty on the outside, dirty on the inside.”
