Pest Bird and Pigeon Control Services in Broken Arrow, Tulsa, Jenks, Bixby
Most people don’t fully realize how much of a nuisance problem pigeons really are. Sure these pest birds look all sweet and cute but the damage these birds can create is massive. In controlled populations they seem fairly harmless but when they go uncontrolled these bird pests are highly destructive. The droppings from pigeons do present an aesthetic problem for sidewalks, parks and buildings, it’s visually disgusting but this is just the visual aspect of what pigeons do. There is so much more to the story than meets the eye. The droppings of pigeons are highly acidic and cause corrosion on bridges, buildings, stadiums and rooftops. This corrosive feces is a huge issue. I will try to explain why on this page.
The airline industry alone spends over $1.2 Billion each year fighting pest birds and these birds cause over $600 Million a year in damages to airplanes. You wouldn’t want to board a flight leaving a runway dealing with a pigeon or geese infestation would you? These birds become small chunks of flesh and bones and can easily take a planes windshield out. Pigeons are often called Rats of the sky. This name suits them well as pigeons are known to carry more disease than even the dirtiest of rats.
Pigeons are known to carry over 60 diseases which is about double what rodent pests carry. Think about all the different ways disease can spread due to pests birds. The droppings are the biggest issue but pigeons also carry mites, ticks and have been associated with spreading bed bugs. Hotel’s or high rise buildings are at high risk of mite, tick and bed bug problems from pigeons roosting on the tops of the buildings. These pest bugs can can make way into the ventilation systems and create a real mess. Another really gross fact about pigeon pests, each one creates over 24 pounds of feces droppings in a year. Imagine the feces a flock of 100 or 200 can leave on a building they roost on or in. Thats a huge amount of pigeon feces contamination.
National News Cases Due to Pigeon Infestations
Case 1: Pigeons have caused the destruction and decay of bridges. You may remember massive reports back in 2007 on national news about a bridge collapse in Minnesota. This bridge on highway I35w had excessive corrosion that caused the plate to bend, warp and bolts to corrode. Pigeon feces was all over this bridge and it’s highly corrosive. In the bridge collapse 98 people were hurt and hospitalized, 22 were children, 13 people died.
Case 2: Another big news moment happened in 2008-2009 when Peanut Butter of America Corp had a food-borne illness case where 714 people became sick and 9 people died. This company ended up bankrupt and it’s head executive got 28 years in prison over the issue. Pigeons were infesting the roof of the facility and rain was pushing the fecal matter into the building which in turn created a salmonella outbreak. All this could have been avoided had the company done something about the pigeon problem.
These two cases are just a small sample of the hundreds of cases each year. Imagine how many are on local news networks. This is not the type of publicity any business needs or wants. Pigeons are a problem for every industry and every type of structure. Some examples: government buildings, NFL stadiums, baseball stadiums, parking garages, food storage facilities, hospitals, universities, industrial parks, manufacturing facilities, the list goes on and on. Destruction of property and food borne illness are only some problems. Some of the disease spread by pigeon feces is E. coli, Histoplasmosis Lung Disease, Candidiasis and Ocular Histoplasmosis which is a serious disease that can cause blindness in humans. These are all serious diseases that you cannot completely prevent but you can take measures to reduce the chances.
