Birds in Restaurants

Question: Why are birds such a problem around restaurants and other businesses?

Answer: Pigeons, swallows, starlings, and other pest birds are attracted to commercial properties like kids to a candy store.

They also cause tens of millions of dollars in damage every year. Their droppings can deteriorate building facades, roofs and ventilation systems, in addition to spreading disease. In fact, certain species of birds have become recognized as public health threats because they harbor disease organisms that can be transmitted to humans.

What’s worse, birds loitering on the outside may find their way inside. And once inside, you may find it difficult to remove them, in which case trapping or physical removal may be your only option.
