The Importance of Cleaning a Bird Site

Droppings

Damage Bird droppings are very acidic and can cause damage to structures and machinery if they remain for extended periods of time. Cleaning a nesting site can also remove existing bird-related odours, reducing the birds’ desire to return.

Worker Safety & Ease of Installation

Working around droppings is unsanitary. It is also difficult for adhesives to adhere to a dirty surface.

Liability & Disease Potential

Bacteria and parasites from droppings & nesting materials remaining at the site are an even greater threat to building occupants as they will look for a new host after the birds are forced out. Many businesses must also be concerned with meeting federal, state and local cleanliness requirements.

Public Image

Installing bird control products on a dropping-splattered area gives the impression that you don’t care about the way the building looks, didn’t do the job correctly or used ineffective products – otherwise why would there still be droppings around?

Evaluate the situation carefully before cleaning a bird site. Some sites are much easier to clean than others. Cleanup of smaller amounts of droppings in open areas may be accomplished by simply hosing, scrubbing or pressure washing the area.

For more serious accumulations, you should follow these steps:

  1. Bag and remove loose layers of droppings. (Be sure to wear protective coveralls, gloves and respiratory equipment when cleaning any bird site. Click here for more information on protective equipment). At all sites, debris and other nesting materials should be shovelled into double bagged heavy duty garbage bags and disposed of properly.
  2. To remove remaining stubborn droppings, apply Dissolve-It. Mix in 1:1 ratio with water and let the mixture soak into the droppings for at least 15 minutes; droppings will generally wipe easily away with a brush and water (see page 7 for more information on Dissolve-It).
  3. Follow with a clean water rinse. After area is clear of droppings, apply Disinfect-It or other hospital grade viricide or germicide to kill any remaining bacteria.

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.

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.
