Bullet Damage Caused By Pest Birds

Pigeon droppings, carcasses and nesting materials are heavy and can clog drains on gas station roofs. This roof could collapse if water does not drain off properly and gathers. Droppings coming off the edge of these roofs and make a mess on the sidewalk below, even hitting customers sometimes.

 
Bird droppings and nesting materials which are allowed to accumulate pose a host of physical problems which can become very serious if they are not corrected immediately.

Damage to Roofs by Droppings

Bird droppings are very acidic in nature. They actually eat away at many substrates, especially tar-based roofing materials. Droppings which are allowed to accumulate on roofs will eat into the material and eventually cause leaks. The life expectancy of a warehouse roof can be cut in half by just a light, but continuous, application of bird droppings.

Damage to Roofs by Nests
Pigeon, starling and sparrow nests are often built in rain gutters, drains and corners of roofs where drains are located.

Damage to Machinery
Acidic bird droppings can do great damage to air conditioning equipment, industrial machinery, siding, insulation etc. Not only is the equipment being damaged, but workers are exposed to a dangerous health-risk any time they work on or around the machinery.

Fires Started by Bird Nests
Nesting materials are usually very flammable due to their construction of straw, twigs and dried droppings. When birds build their nests inside electric signs or other machinery there is a great risk of fire.

Ventilation Systems Blocked by Bird Nests

Bird nests built in chimneys and ventilation systems can not only spread diseases through the system, but can actually block air-flow which can have horrible consequences.
