Large amounts of fouling and associated mess look unsightly and require frequent specialist cleaning. Fouling can present a physical health and safety risk due to its slippery nature when present on paths and walkways.
The diseases carried by pigeons can be transmitted to humans, making handling of fouling and associated materials hazardous in case pathogens are ingested or inhaled, with lung infection by Ornithosis probably the greatest hazard.
Insects that are known to be found in birds’ nests can range from biting insects such as fleas and mites, to stored product and textile pests that attack commodities. High pest bird populations increase the risk of migration of these insects from the birds and their nests into houses.
Contego can provide cleaning and treatment services to resolve all of these issues leaving the area clean and hygienic. Where necessary this service can also be supported with advice on restricting further bird activity.
