If you are suffering from a bird infestation you will be wondering how to keep birds away from your premises and equipment. Any buildings, bridges or structures on which birds can perch and roost, that provide birds some security from predators and where there is a reliable source of food will always attract birds, and it will be hard to keep the birds away. Unfortunately, this also means that birds will foul the area where they congregate. Bird droppings on pavements, external steps and fire escapes will be slippery and hazardous when wet. Breathing in dust contaminated with bird faeces can cause ornithosis/psittacosis, a flu-like illness which may lead to pneumonia and in severe cases, endocarditis, hepatitis and death. The birds, the bird droppings and their nesting debris can carry parasites, fleas and ticks. Therefore it is necessary to keep the birds away to avoid health and safety issues.
