|Dangers Posed by Pest Birds
Starlings, Blackbirds, Robins, Finches, etc. are abundant with populations estimated between 750 million and 1 billion. The estimated damage to fruit, berry crops and grain done by these pest birds exceeds $150 million - annually. Damage to fruit also reduces the quality and makes it susceptible to other pests and pathogens.
Recreation and Urban Areas
Pest bird droppings expose humans to more than 60 dangerous diseases including salmonella, Lyme disease, histoplasmosis, meningitis and West Nile virus. Bird droppings pose a threat to homes, lawns, landscaping, golf courses, parks, equipment, machinery, industrial facilities,etc
Dairies and Feedlots
Starlings congregate at dairies and feedlots for food and shelter. During cold conditions as many as 10,000 starlings have been seen assembling and contaminating feed with their droppings. Contamination of feed reduced milk production of dairy cows because the cows received fewer calories and nutrients. In addition to accelerated corrosion of fencing, corrals and other equipment.
Airports & Municipal Areas
Often times airports are surrounded by landfills, wetlands and other habitats that attract a variety of birds - many end up feeding or resting near runways posing a threat to aircraft as they land and take off. The bigger the bird, the bigger the threat to aircraft.
