3 Reasons to Remove Those Pesky Birds

Most people consider birds to be majestic and beautiful creatures when they see them outside. However, their opinions seem to change greatly when they invade their home or property. They can become an uninvited and dangerous guest when they invade our homes or get a little too close for comfort.

There are many valid reasons you can cite for not wanting them in or near your house, and here we will take a look at just a few of those reasons.

  1. Birds can make a horrible mess. Birds love to find a nice cozy place to roost, and this place could be on your house’s rafters or ledges. They can make a nest in the smallest of places. Then you have to worry about the materials used in their nests dropping down on you or into your home, and this can be really unsanitary. Not only will you have to look out for their nesting materials but also they will leave their droppings everywhere. These droppings may be small in size, but they can really add up and be disgusting to see. This can also be dangerous because of all the diseases you can catch from their droppings.
  2. Birds are a huge health risk. Birds are often referred to as the rats of the sky. They are dirty, full of germs and parasites, and they love to carry these germs just about anywhere. As stated before, you do not even have to have contact with the bird to catch some of the diseases they carry. Some of the more common disease they carry and can spread to humans are Newcastle disease, encephalitis, histoplasmosis, pseudo-tuberculosis, toxoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and even salmonella food poisoning. Many parasites such as fleas, ticks and mites are common on most birds and can be easily transferred to us.
  3. Birds can destroy your garden or beautiful yard. Birds love to drill holes in trees and make nests in your yard. As you read earlier, this can create an unsightly mess and be unsanitary. For those of us who loved to have a well maintained yard or enjoy the day outside, this could become a real nuisance. It is also worse for the avid gardener. Most birds will come through in huge groups and end up destroying all of your hard work by eating all of your fruits and vegetables and leaving their mess on any of them that they do not eat. It can be very frustrating trying to get them to leave, especially when they have such a welcoming area that provides shelter and food. So, you will most likely experience this problem for the long0 term.


Birds can obviously easily turn from being beautiful majestic creatures to becoming unsightly encroaching pests. They are definitely not something I would want living in or too close to my house, especially when you take in all of the health risks associated with them. So, when you have a bird infestation that you want to get rid of right away, do not try to do it yourself.

Call in the professionals who will know all the proper steps to take. They know how to deal with the many health risks associated with birds, how to humanely remove them and sanitize any area they have inhabited. So. Play it safe and do not be afraid to seek help when you need it.
