Private homeowners and landlords are increasingly faced with a problematic situation.
Pigeons and other so-called harmful birds become a real plague. Bird excrement ruins facades in the long run due to the nitric acid contained and leads to corrosion of roofs. Nesting materials regularly clog gutters and drains. Window sills, sidewalks, shutters, etc. are also often heavily soiled. In addition, tenants, residents, passers-by and customers feel harassed. The economic consequences: Annual damage to existing buildings running into millions.
Pigeons have learned to survive in almost any environment, plundering our food waste and requiring only minimal shelter for nest building. The longer the birds nest or hibernate in unwanted areas, the harder it is to get rid of them.
The fatal aspect: birds such as pigeons transmit human pathogenic, bacterial and viral pathogens such as salmonellosis and paratyphoid fever, but also various types of parasites such as ticks, bird fleas, mites or bugs are found in bird nests and, as soon as the birds leave the nests, can enter the house and infect humans. In addition, the highly infectious bird droppings contaminate the air in the room and can be inhaled by humans as microparticles. It is important to effectively prevent birds from approaching and staying in the building by taking effective measures to ward off birds
