Birds tend to nest and roost in the internal structures around your facility, contributing to a negative outward impression of your company. Their shed feathers and bird droppings, alongside the possibility of diseases being spread, can damage both your reputation and brand. 

Some bird species are considered a real nuisance for businesses. Most pest birds gain entry into premises through loading bay areas or damaged roofing. They are known to:

  • Cause property damage by dislodging roof tiles, blocking guttering, building nests and leaving droppings that corrode building material.
  • Be aggressive and attack customers and employees, especially during the breeding season when they are defending their young.
  • Carry fleas, mites, ticks, lice and other biting insects which can spread diseases and pose a serious health risk.

Adopting expert bird control measures sooner rather than later will ensure your business is protected against the hazards associated with pest birds.

At Ehrlich, we’re the experts in bird pest control. We have a wide range of discreet, cost-effective and humane control measures that won’t harm the birds or disrupt your business.

Tailored bird solutions and services

Your Ehrlich bird control specialist will work with you to develop a custom solution that is tailored to the needs of your business. We provide a range of bird proofing methods:

  • Exclusion solutions - Solutions such as netting, galvanized screening, sheet metal, and strip doors physically block access to areas that are favorable for roosting and nesting.

  • Perch modification systems - Wire deterrents, spike systems, and bird coil/spiders prevent birds from roosting and perching and coax them into areas of less concern.

  • Behavior alteration deterrents - These deterrent systems, such as sound dispersal and taste/smell repellent, condition the birds to avoid a particular area without harm.

  • Clean-up/sanitation services - Proper clean-up is essential and must be performed before any system installation. Federal, State, and OSHA regulations are always followed.

  • Pigeon trapping - Our proprietary trap entices birds into a stress-free environment with food, water, and shade. Our specialists perform humane removal in accordance with local, state, and federal laws.

Diseases carried by birds

Birds are known to carry a range of diseases and are hosts to other insect pests. Humans can also develop symptoms similar to influenza from the spores from bird droppings. During our bird control services, Ehrlich takes care of the parasites too, leaving nothing behind or untreated.

It is important to contact us at the first sign of a bird infestation to avoid health hazards such as:

  • Salmonella - This bacterium is deposited where pigeons or gulls defecate. It can lead to Salmonellosis and Paratyphoid fever.
  • Psittacosis - Also called Ornithosis or pigeon fancier's lung, this infection can be transmitted by inhaling the bacteria from dried droppings or handling feathers of infected pigeons or seagulls.
  • Fowl pest - Known also as fowl plague or Newcastle disease, this virus can be transmitted to people when they’re exposed to fecal matter and other excretions from infected pigeon birds.
  • Escherichia coli (E. coli) - Mainly spread by seagulls, this can lead to illnesses such as gastroenteritis and septicemia.
  • Fungal infections - Includes Histoplasmosis and Cryptococcosis. These infections are carried within bird droppings from seagulls.
