Birds do provide much joy as they form part of nature, however unfortunately in certain situations and with some bird species health hazards can occur. Generally these problems are to do with pigeons, starlings or sea gulls who when nesting make a mess and more seriously can damage buildings, signage not to mention the noise they can make when you or guests are trying to rest. Starlings among other birds nesting in your roof can disturb all summer. We recommend proofing against starlings in winter before spring and they nest. This is because starlings are protected as are most birds when nesting.
It is also important to remember in those nasty droppings Salmonella can be found in of 70% of the pigeon population. When considering bird proofing work remember many birds are protected and so getting advice is always recommended.
