Birds cause damage to buildings and infrastructure and are an occupational health & safety risk.

Many industrial and commercial buildings (factories, office buildings, hotels, hospitals, etc.) suffer from infestations of pest birds. The birds are attracted to these areas due to the shelter and food sources they often provide. Bird problems are not only limited to substantial property damage, the presence of the birds also creates a variety of health and safety issues.

There are 30 known diseases that can be passed from birds to humans.

Effective Bird Management can help in preventing many of these human health issues.

Examples of air-borne and food-borne diseases include: Campylobacter, Chlamydia psittaci, Cryptococcus neoformans, Escherichia coli, Histoplasma spp, Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella and Vibrio cholerae.
