Having too many birds around can cost businesses money in both damages and lost revenue. While most birds are harmless and do not cause a problem for homes and businesses there are a few species that cause problems for the St. Louis area.
The largest of the pest birds, these animals often will roost in protected areas of buildings and can cause a great amount of damage with their droppings. They will often roost along the edges of buildings to “people watch”, with their roost nearby. Due to the fact that they will often have large amounts of droppings, these birds can be a serious health risk.
This is a creature who is very good at getting into tight places. They will often make their homes in both homes and businesses. Many times they can travel in large numbers and when gathered their sound in deafening.
These birds tend to make nests which are readily visible in signs, lights, and other architectural features of buildings. Like the others, their droppings can easily deface the signs and other areas they take up residence.
