birds can carry Fleas, Ticks, Mites, and numerous diseases which can be passed on when living in close proximity

It may be good luck but it's certainly not pleasant being the victim of a 'pigeon projectile'. These nuisance birds have taken over all across the globe. With few natural predators in the UK, pigeons that fall sick tend to survive and spread diseases such as Ornithosis, Listeria and E-coli, which can all be transmitted to humans not only via their droppings but also the birds themselves.

Health related problems
Droppings can become airborne in small particles when dry, which can lead to respiratory complaints such as psittacosis. Not only hazardous to us but pigeon droppings are also acidic and can corrode metals, stonework and even brickwork.

Financial implications
Nesting materials birds use can block chimneys, flues and guttering, causing possible issues with carbon monoxide and damage to buildings as water overflows from blocked gutters.

Secondary Issues
It been established that birds can carry and pass on a host of health problems, but I've not mentioned the risk of secondary infestations. Birds often bring with them the likes of mites, fleas, ticks, and have even been known to carry bedbugs! These secondary pests bring with them their own health issues and can be a lot harder to get rid of.

They really are a pest.

INFESTATION IDENTIFICATION

Droppings

Piles of poop quickly mount up below a pigeon nest, you'll soon notice it. With their droppings being acidic they can quickly cause damage to paintwork on cars and property alike. Taking preventative measures removes the risk of any costs incurred.

DEBRIS

Birds quickly cause a mess when nesting, with building materials from nests along with errant feathers soon piling up. This can cause blockages to drains and air vents, with the latter spreading dangerous particles which can cause breathing issues and serious illness, something you'll surely want to avoid.

NOISE

That persistent cooing that accompanies any nuisance nesting near by can quickly drive you crazy. Whether a flurry of fluttering wings or the even more annoying mating calls or the result of - fledgling chicks are very needy noisy pests that can easily make you go insane.
