get rid of birdsHow Birds Affect the Industry

The aviation industry struggles with bird control on a regular basis. Bird strikes, when birds collide with airplanes in air, have been a hot topic in the industry after the highly covered bird strike in New York that forced a plane landing in the Hudson River.

Many airports and airfields are built near marshlands where large waterfowl such as geese reside. When these birds get in the flight path of a plane the damage can range from simple repairs to catastrophe.  Bird strikes, when birds collide with airplanes in air, have been a hot topic after the highly publicized bird strike in New York that forced a plane to land in the Hudson River.

The other major bird problem that affects the aviation industry is birds roosting in air hangars. Wayward birds will often try to roost or nest in the high ceiling rafters of air hangars creating a mess below on the planes – which can be difficult to clean.
