Are birds dangerous?
Pigeons are perfect disease carriers and can travel great distances. Birds and their droppings can carry over 60 diseases. They also harbor different parasites, such as ticks and mites in their feathers. A respiratory infection called histoplasmosis can develop from breathing a fungus that grows on the droppings. Candidiasis and Cryptococcosis are yeast infections spread by pigeons from their intestinal track through droppings. These diseases are transmitted to humans by breathing the fungus spores in the droppings, this is especially true if the droppings are dry and then get stirred up into the air.
Why do I have a bird problem?
Pigeons and other birds such as Starlings, Seagulls, and House Sparrows can pose a serious health threat due to their proximity to humans. These urban dwellers have completely adapted to our way of life and thrive in our buildings and eat our food.
Where will I find birds?
If you would be outraged to find a colony of rats living in your attic, you should be equally upset to find pigeons nesting in your attic or on your roof. In terms of disease and damage, rodents and pigeons are similar. Birds are the perfect vessel for spreading disease, they travel great distances and harbor over forty different parasites and can host over sixty types of infectious diseases.
