5 Bird Problems on Your Roof That You Never Knew About

Featured image for “5 Bird Problems on Your Roof That You Never Knew About”

Have you ever wondered why people spend thousands of euros on solving their bird problems every year? Are you one of those who think that this is a waste of money? We are sharing 5 reasons that will actually change your mind!

Open, peripheral areas, industrial sites, factories and landfill sites attract birds searching for food and a safe haven for nesting. The nesting season starts in the spring and with the sun shining on your rooftop it is getting one of the warmest and thus, nicest spots for birds. Birds also consider your rooftop safe because they have an overview of the area in case of the predator attacks.

Despite the fact that the birds consider your rooftop safe, is it really safe for you to host such neighbours? Birds can be a noisy and messy nuisance but beyond that, they cause many serious and dangerous hazards on your rooftop.

1 Fire hazard:

Bird nests in ventilation shafts can start fires. When birds nest inside buildings vents, especially clothes dryer vents, the blocked lint can ignite.

2 Leakage:

Birds can cause leakage by clogging roof-gutters due to the nests, bones and etc.

3 Health issues:

Birds are able to carry more than 60 transmittable bird-borne diseases including Psittacosis, Salmonellosis, Fungal diseases and Avian Influenza which can be fatal for humans.

4 Material degradation:

Since bird droppings are very acidic they can eat away at construction materials such as rooftop surface or air-conditioners.

5 Noise, poor sanitation and decreased aesthetics:

Last but not the least, birds make lots of noise and mess on your rooftop. This attracts new birds to nest and roost there. Birds can also attack people when they feel danger.

A proper solution for your bird problems is necessary to secure yourself from the points mentioned above and eliminate financial losses associated with cleaning and maintenance costs. Automated laser bird repellent is one of the newest, cleanest and as many user experience stories prove, the most efficient way of bird repelling. Birds perceive the approaching laser beam as a physical object. It appeals to the survival instinct, causing the birds to fly away. It’s safe, silent and birds do not get used to the laser beam.

Bird Control Group’s automated laser bird repellent provides 24/7 protection from wild birds by shining a green laser light in the area affected by the problem. Get in touch via the form below if you are interested in learning more.
