Why Virginia Bird Removal? What Hazards Do Birds Have?

Birds can become a nuisance animal if there are enough of them and if they nest in areas they shouldn’t be. These birds will nest in dryer vents and sides of homes, doing damage, and becoming a fire hazard. That’s not even talking about the parasites and insects that are attracted to birds’ nests. If there are many birds on your property, you also have to worry about bird droppings and their corrosive nature. Birds, are amazing to look at and admire, but they can cause damage and headaches to homeowners if there are many, and if they get into places they shouldn’t be.

Birds in Dryer Vents and Birds in Bathroom Vents

Having a Bird in a Dryer vent or a Bird in a Bathroom Vent is the most frequent call we get here at Blue Ridge. Frequently we have to remove the nest as this is a major fire hazard as the nest blocks the heat and lint from escaping making it a tinderbox ready to ignite at any time. Many house fires have been attributed to animals nesting in these vents. But this is not the only hazard. When birds make nests in other areas such as bathroom vents they also attract insects and parasites in that vent. We have gotten many calls due to people using the bathroom and finding insects and even maggots coming out from their vents into their bathroom or kitchen. Of course, when there are insects and maggots, there are also bacteria and other diseases that can be pumped into your home. Including such diseases as salmonella, E. coli, histoplasmosis, and cryptococcus.

Dangers of Bird Droppings to Your Home

Bird Droppings are off putting and makes your home, driveway, or car look awful. But they can deal irreversible damage to your property, especially when they are in great numbers. These droppings are acidic and cause corrosive damage to metal, concrete, and paint. As an example, if there are untreated droppings on the roof they can rust away the nails and supports on the roof and can cut the life expectancy of the roof by half.

Bird droppings are good at wearing down concrete and wood, which will destroy your deck and patio if they haven’t been treated in a while, and in large numbers will wear it down even faster. This is why we recommend that if you do have a bird feeder keep it away from your patio or deck so they wont roost and poop all over your deck and patio.
