Bird Control Sydney

Birds are known to be able to carry or transmit: “pigeon ornithosis, encephalitis, Newcastle disease, cryptococcosis, toxoplasmosis, salmonella, and several other diseases.” Also, with the right conditions, pigeon droppings can harbour “airborne spores of the causal agent of histoplasmosis, and a systemic fungus disease that can infect humans.” Pigeons also carry ectoparasites for example: fleas, lice, mites, ticks, and other biting pests.

Bird Problems

Birds nest in roof voids, gutters, guttering downpipes and this can cause moisture to enter the building causing damage and bringing bird diseases into the building.

The pigeon will nest in and around air conditioning units from houses, units and large commercial units which can have serious health consequences.

flex-track-TrackPro

This a very effective Bird Control product that is virtually impossible to see when installed and comes in various colours to match a buildings colour scheme.

Bird Mites

Bird Lice

Bird-lice-with-Pinpoint

Bird mites often incorrectly called bird lice are very small but bite and can make life very uncomfortable unless treated as there may be tens of thousands in a nest, so when the chicks leave the nest the bird mites will search for another blood meal from the nearest host.

Which is usually by biting us in bed and they may survive for three weeks creating a lot of discomfort. They will bite humans but will not survive on humans. The picture to the right is of a Bird Mite – Bird lice with a needle point as a size reference.
