How Birds Affect the Industry
Cities, states, municipalities, counties and other government agencies all deal with pest bird problems. Common areas are state owned buildings or structures such as bridges. Birds have been known to deteriorate historic buildings with their acidic droppings and can create quite a mess when they inhabit abandoned buildings.
When birds nest under bridges or other structures, the build up of droppings can corrode materials and potentially lead to unsound structures. It is thought that a build up of bird droppings on beams under the Minneapolis Bridge in 2005 was one of the causes of its collapse.
Bird droppings in city owned and maintained areas can create a slip and fall hazard. In 2006, the city of New York was ordered to pay a man $6 million dollars after he slipped on bird droppings in a subway station.
Common areas birds pose a problem:
♦ State Owned Properties
♦ Public Transportation Depots
♦ Bridges, Roadways
♦ State Parks
♦ Storage Facilities
♦ Military Bases
♦ Abandoned Buildings
Every bird problem is different; the appropriate bird deterrents are chosen based on the bird species, area where they are posing a problem and whether or not the birds are nesting.
