get rid of birdsHow Birds Affect the Industry

The most common area schools deal with bird issues are in open courtyards, outdoor eating areas and near garbage bins. Birds will typically sit on roof lines or ledges waiting for discarded scraps of food.

Maintenance departments may spend time power washing bird droppings from lunch tables and other areas. Bird droppings are known to carry over 60 transmittable diseases such as salmonella and ecoli. Those most affected are people with compromised immune systems, children and the elderly. Installing bird deterrents can prevent potential illness due to bird droppings and save the maintenance department time and money.
