Commercial Pigeon Control
Our course, our bird repellents and other products must be humane bird deterrents because, though pigeons are pests, they are just trying to survive in the modern world. However, at Mug-A-Bug we also understand that our clients are also trying to survive in this modern economy and this is why we take great strides to find them the most cost effective solutions for getting rid of pigeons.
Damage Caused By Bird Droppings/Get rid of pigeons
The life expectancy of a rooftop for commercial, can be cut in half by the continuous application of bird droppings. The accumulation of bird droppings can cost you thousands of dollars in repairs or an entire roof replacement. Bird droppings are naturally acidic and bird droppings actually eat away at most substrates, especially tar-based roofing materials. When bird droppings are allowed to accumulate on rooftops, they eat into the material and eventually cause leaks.
Bird Nest/ Water Damage/ How to keep birds away!
Pigeon nests are often built in rain gutters, drains and corners of roofs where drains are located. Many commercial properties and warehouses experience water damage every year, there are rooftops that even collapsed when drainage systems are blocked and standing water is allowed to accumulate.
Bird Droppings/ Collapsing Ceilings/ Get rid of pigeons
Pigeons enter attics of apartments, warehouses, restaurants and other commercial buildings through openings that are not sealed off properly. In most scenarios the pigeons will set up residence in these protected areas and start to build nests, all the time discarding bird droppings. Over time the weight of the droppings becomes so great that the actual ceiling can collapse.
Fires Started by Bird Nests/ How to keep birds away!
Nesting materials such as straw, twigs and dried droppings are usually very flammable due to their dry nature. When birds build their nests inside fire place ducts, electric signs or other areas where the nesting materials may be introduced to fire, there is a great risk of property damage. Sign companies that service electric signs blame bird nests for most of their sign fires.
Bird Nests Blocked Ventilation System/ Get rid of pigeons
Bird nests built in chimneys and ventilation systems can not only spread diseases through the system, but can actually block airflow which can have horrible consequences. Any bird’s nest blocking an outside air intake, may cause carbon monoxide levels to rise in the facility and create a serious health hazard to humans.
