Farmers and growers have always had a tug of war with pest birds. Annual worldwide losses have been in the millions of dollars as birds damage and destroy crops, vines and seeds. Birds peck at fruits and vegetables grown in concentrated areas because they provide a quick and easy meal. Food storage areas, such as barns and granaries also attract birds. Losses in these areas can be extensive. Even in backyard gardens, fruit trees, berry bushes, vines and vegetables are constantly under siege by pest birds.
Recent Bird Flu Epidemic Threatens Poultry Farmers
The USDA recently documented one of the worst national outbreaks of bird flu since December last year, an epidemic that more than doubles the number of birds affected so far across the U.S. The USDA went on to warn poultry farmers that this bird flu virus can kill nearly an entire flock in just 48 hours, adding that over 5.3 million chickens in an Iowa farm recently fell victim to the avian influenza or bird flu. With over 58 million egg-laying hens, Iowa is the nation's largest egg-producing state. Iowa is one of 12 U.S. states with bird flu infections since the beginning of 2015. The need for prompt and effective bird controls in these areas can’t be overstated.
