How to control a bird problem at your commercial property

26 Aug 2016

How can we Help?

Compared to other pests around the home, birds might not seem like much of a problem. After all, other than waking us up a bit too early, birds seem quite harmless. However, for businesses who find themselves on the receiving end of bird related issues, the damage caused can be serious. Today, we’ll be looking at the damage that birds can cause businesses and what you can do to control it.

Damage and disease caused by birds

One of the main issues caused by birds is the disease-carrying droppings and nesting material they leave behind. Birds are carriers for a number of diseases and having their droppings around your business is not only unsightly, it’s also unhygienic. For businesses, there is the added pressure of the aesthetic problem that comes with droppings and other bird waste around the building.

Not only can birds cause hygiene issues, they can also cause significant damage. Birds cost Australian businesses millions of dollars in repairs due to damage to roofs, machinery, food products and ceilings. Bird droppings are acidic and can cause serious amounts of corrosion, especially in large quantities. The nesting materials left by birds also cause fires as well as blockages in guttering and pipes in the roof. There have also been reports of health issues caused by nesting material in ventilation systems.

Call the professionals

When you have a bird problem in your business, it’s always best to call on pest control experts to deal with the situation. They will be able to do a thorough inspection of your workplace to look for signs of damage as well as formulating a treatment solution. From licensed baiting to physical barriers, there are steps that can be taken to prevent birds causing damage to your business.

When choosing a pest control service for your bird problem, look for a company which also offers cleaning services. Site clean-up needs to occur to ensure your business meets cleanliness requirements and to ensure worker safety, given the diseases which can be spread through bird waste. Cleaning the site has the added bonus of removing bird-related odours which reduces the birds’ desire to return to the area. Finally, a thorough cleaning gives an improved public image and means you don’t need to contend with droppings splattered in areas which can be seen by the public.

What our Clients say

We had an appointment scheduled very quickly and easily with Bug Busters. Aaron was on time and a true professional. He was knowledgable, open, and explained the whole process easily and clearly. Gave us a guarantee that our problems would be solved and if there were any future issues he would attend to them himself with the utmost expedience. Aaron was a real pleasure to work with and i feel significantly more comfortable after working with him. Would recommend their services to anyone who needed them.

Chey Bowers

I found the young man named Deryn who came to deal with our rodent problem to be extremely polite, personable and knowledgeable. He was on time and friendly and knew a lot about the behaviours of the rat species. I would highly recommend Bug busters and will definately them for future pest problems when they arise.

Sarah Garrett

Bugbusters installed termite traps around my house and shed many years ago. Every 3 months the traps are inspected for any termite activity. At intervals the house, ceiling and shed are are checked for termites. They have also dealt with wasp infestations and put rat baits in the ceiling.. Their operatives have always been helpful and friendly. I would recommend Bugbusters to anyone.

I have used Bug Busters on a number of occassions over the last 15 years. The last time only a few days ago.. Derryn was absolutely client focussed; professional; neat and cleaned up impeccably my jarrah floors that had just been re varnished. I have no hesitation to recommend this company.. Five stars from me. Paul Vic Park.
