Bird watching is a wonderful and popular past-time for most people. However, birds can be quite problematic to homes and businesses. Geese, pigeons, seagulls, and woodpeckers have caused millions of dollars of damage each year to homes and office buildings.
Woodpeckers are notorious for pecking through wood-siding and building nests inside people’s homes. Grackles have been known to build nests in bathroom vents. Chimney swifts make nests in chimneys. Most bird droppings, especially pigeon droppings, can contain up to 60 different types of diseases which are major health risks.
