Bat & Bird Removal
BAT & BIRD REMOVAL
At the sight of any bat dropping most people are quick to reach for mothballs, ultrasonic deterrent or aerosol. These do not work on these flying mammals.
As creepy as they look, bats are a critical part of the ecosystem as they control the insect population. Also it is inhumane and impractical to kill them. In fact in most states in the US it is illegal to kill them. Bats are not aggressive, however, if there are bats in your house, it’s only a matter of time before their waste begins to pose a serious problem.
The guano (bat poop) could contain a fungus that may cause a serious respiratory infection called histoplasmosis in humans. Aside from the health concerns, if bats are inside your home, their urine and droppings can destroy wood and other building materials. If you have a large infestation of bats, it’s time to call the pro…Grizz can solve your bat problems.
WHY BIRD CONTROL?
Birds, bird droppings and nesting materials can carry 60 different diseases and ectoparasites that can be passed to humans and animals. If dried bird droppings are found near ventilation systems, they can travel through buildings potentially infecting inhabitants with compromised immune systems.
Droppings can damage products and contaminate production lines. Birds can often be found nesting or perching on rafters in warehouses and storage facilities. Bird droppings present in such areas may violate health codes.
Bird droppings and nests are an unattractive feature for homes and businesses. Birds on a ledge or sign, or droppings covering a sidewalk may send a message to visitors that the business is careless.
Cost of Cleanup
Businesses that clean up after birds on a daily or weekly basis are wasting money and exposing employees to health risks. Some businesses spend thousands of dollars each year on the regular cleanup of bird droppings. Installing bird control products can save businesses time and money.
Property and Equipment Damage
Bird droppings may render machinery or equipment inoperable or may require regular clean up so operators are not exposed. Droppings are highly acidic and can corrode buildings materials and stain fabrics. These will need restoration or complete replacement once damaged.
Health Code Violations
Pest bird droppings found in food processing plants, restaurants, storage facilities or other areas may violate health codes resulting in fines, legal action or closures. Birds are considered a pest and need the same type of consideration as say roaches or rats.
Employees should not work in areas that are unsafe due to an accumulation of bird droppings. Bird droppings carry disease and affect those with weakened immune systems. If an employee becomes sick due to an ignored bird problem, the business will most likely be liable.
Slip and Fall Risk
Bird droppings can be slippery. If a customer or employee falls they may sue the building owner or property manager. A man in New York City was awarded $6 million dollars in 2006 from the city after slipping on pigeon droppings in a subway.
