BIRDS

 

Many birds are insectivores. Many of the pest birds species attack crops, foul structures, contaminate food, and create a nuisance, thereby causing significant economic losses and affect human and animal health.

Many of the problems attributed to birds are due to a few species closely associated with humans. All these species are of increasing concern because of their tendency to flock and nest in large numbers in urban and residential environments.

More than 50 diseases have associated with birds, their nests, and droppings. Diseases such as histoplasmosis, chlamydiosis, salmonellosis can affect human and domestic animal health and can sometimes cause death. A variety of ectoparasites, such as mites and ticks, are associated with birds and often bite humans or infests domestic animals causing extreme discomfort.

The best approach to these bird problem is the use of an integrated pest management (IPM) program. Components of an IPM program for solving bird problems may include education, proper waste management, structural repair, maintenance, biological, and mechanical control techniques, as well as pesticide application.
