Physical Damage Caused by Bird Droppings & Nesting Materials to Homes
Homes sustain costly damage because of pest birds. Damage can occur to roofs, air conditioning units, pools, windows screens, hurricane shutters and more. When the bird droppings and nesting accumulate they pose a list of problems, which can become serious if they are not attended to.
Damage to the home can be critical but not that costly if taken care of when the problem is first noticed.
A few problems that can occur from birds nesting and their droppings
Nests in Hurricane Shutters
Window Screens Torn
Windows Cracked by pecking birds
Damage to roofs from Droppings and nesting materials
Birds nest in Fireplaces causing fires
Droppings in pool and on pool decks
Nests in air-conditioning units
Nest in rafters

Health issues to the home owner and guests
The above problems arise when bird problems go untreated. If the problem goes untreated for too long the homeowner will accrue a much bigger expense, I.e. A new dryer if it catches fire, an air conditioner unit if it clogs beyond repair, etc. Most home owners try to rid the bird problems themselves by shooing them away and putting out scare tactics. What they don't realize is that it's not just the unsightly droppings or nesting materials but the health hazards that is caused by birds. Although the initial cost of professional bird control might be shocking the long term solution saves a bundle.
