My secretary told me that she had received several complaints of large flocks of birds throughout the campus. I am the administrator of a medium sized university, so problems like this are always sent my way. The janitorial staff was working more than they should just on removing bird waste from the grounds. I had never had this problem in the six years I have been in this position, so I had to go online to find out more about bird control methods. I knew that I would have to have a company come in and handle it, but I still wanted to learn more about it on my own first.
I like to have an even playing field, or as much of one as I can, so I don’t get taken advantage of in any situation. I needn’t have worried with the company I contracted this work out to though. They were very honorable as well as reasonable, and I knew that I had made the right call in choosing them to help us with our bird problem. They told me that the problem was not severe, but it was still troublesome because of the amount of droppings this quantity of birds leave behind.
They explained the droppings and waste left behind is not only unsightly but unhealthy too. I had read about the different diseases that these types of bird leave behind, but he filled me in on even more. They have nests, and often things such as ticks and mites will be in the nests too. They bring about their own set of troubles, so I was avoiding more than one potential trouble by bringing in the professionals. They were able to install bird wires and nets as well as spikes in various spots throughout the campus, and we have not had any complaints since this was done.
