AVIAN PESTS AND DISEASES

AVIAN PESTS AND DISEASES
Pigeons can carry around sixty diseases, some of which are contagious and can be fatal. In any flock of birds, ectoparasites are always present: fleas, bedbugs, ticks and mites, which often cause entrenched infestations in buildings where there are nests, notably in attics.
AVIAN PESTS AND DISEASES

These are some of the most common and dangerous diseases: salmonellosis, cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, ornithosis, aspergillosis, candidiasis, chlamydia, coccidiosis, encephalitis and tuberculosis.

AVIAN PESTS AND DISEASES
Pathogens of these diseases are found in pigeon droppings. For them to be dangerous, direct contact is not necessary – the wind, vacuum cleaners and fans can all carry the infected droppings’ dry powder into homes, restaurants, offices, hospitals and schools,  contaminating food, utensils, linens, and triggering infections. All pigeon flocks carry ectoparasites, especially fleas, bedbugs, ticks (argas reflexus) and mites. Floors soiled by droppings, guano and carcasses can contaminate the environment and are a source of serious sanitation problems, since these insects in turn become disease carriers.

What can be done to deter pigeons
The pigeon is considered a pet like a dog or a cat and as a result they are protected by law.  According to law n.968 of 12/27/1972, these birds are “good for the environment ” and ” part of the national heritage”, so without legal permission from the relevant authority (USL), pigeons can not be captured, much less poisoned or exterminated, unless authorized by the state. However, pigeons can be deterred from entering certain areas, and this is the primary objective of any control campaign.

How to Protect Against Pigeons
The best defense is deterring:  electrical, audio, mechanical or nets that are designed to distance the pigeons from homes, historic buildings, monuments and so on, without causing damage to structures or people.

Birds Removal Systems:

The sight of pigeons in a city is common and in some cases even a tourist attraction. In reality, however, pigeons are very dangerous creatures – not for their aggression but for the diseases that they can spread to humans. Their presence in excessive numbers requires a precise intervention strategy to prevent the spread of these diseases and to protect your health.

BIRD DETERRENTS
The procedures follow strict protocols and specific certification and the successful treatment of the infestation is 100% guaranteed.

BIRD DETERRENTS
Project & Service works with different methods to remove birds and to prevent the spread of disease. To remove pigeons from a building or part of a building, we adhere to a specific intervention protocol based on research of the best technologies and experience of their correct use in each specific context. We develop strategies for removal of troublesome pigeons and design integrated systems according to your needs.
