Bird Waste, Droppings and Guano Cleaning and Removal
Health Risks of Guano
Bird droppings, commonly known as guano, can pose a range of problems to buildings. They are acidic and can corrode metals, brickwork and stonework. It can cause permanent damage if not dealt with in good time.
But on top of that guano can be a threat to public health and it is essential it is dealt with quickly. The droppings can spread nasty pathogens such as ornithosis, listeria and e-coli. When dry, guano can become airborne and lead to respiratory complaints such as psittacosis, and the cryptococcus fungus.
Then there is a health and safety risk of slips and trips, and the fact that birds and their nests can harbour parasites such as mites, ticks, fleas and beetles.
Bird control measures can prevent birds from nesting in areas where it is not safe.
