No one likes to have to deal with pesky critters invading their homes. There are many reasons you don’t want wild animals living anywhere in your residence. Many people think “pest infestations” only include insects/bugs. Sometimes an infestation can consist of forest animals, including bats and birds.
Birds Can Be a Hazard
When a home becomes infested with birds, there are a wide variety of dangers. Birds can carry diseases and mites, and they leave their droppings everywhere. Bird droppings not only carry germs and bacteria, they also cause chimney blockages and odor. If birds have invaded your fireplace and chimney, their droppings can accumulate and you could have a fire hazard on your hands.
How to Detect Bird Infestation
Birds inside a home are a danger to its inhabitants (your family) and themselves. They can make nests and bring debris to the fireplace (another fire hazard). At first, you might not notice birds flying into your chimney/smoke stack. Over time you could discover droppings at the bottom of the fireplace or even debris from nests. Some birds are quite vocal, so their chirping may be what tips you off to their presence. At first, it might seem cute. Over time, you may realize you have a real problem on your hands.
Why Birds Must Be Removed
Regardless of what alerts you to your bird infestation, address the issue right away. Birds do not simply go away on their own. They have to be relocated by an experienced professional. If you let the birds stay, you will encounter serious issues when winter comes and you want to use your fireplace. Even if you decide not to use the fireplace, an infestation will remain a serious concern. Bacteria, germs, and debris will accumulate over time, creating health hazards.
