Why Is it Crucial to Clean Up Bird Droppings?

Bird droppings are more than simply an eyesore. They pose serious health, environmental, legal, and economic problems if allowed to accumulate or if they are left untreated.

  1. Public Health Risk – Droppings from birds harbour harmful microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, and parasites which are a particular threat to vulnerable individuals.
  2. Building erosion and degradation – it’s not just humans that bird droppings affect, they are also bad for buildings. Guano is acidic which means that over time it eats away at and permanently taints surfaces. Buildings made of limestone are particularly vulnerable.
  3. Slip Hazards – pigeon poop and bird guano create hazardous walking surfaces making companies and local governments liable for damages and injuries.
  4. Blocked Drains, gutters and flooding – bird droppings and nesting material block gutters and drain downpipes and can cause flooding within buildings.
  5. Reputational damage – bird droppings are unsightly. If you find them unpleasant to look at you can be sure that customers feel the same way. If you’re a front-facing company, having droppings removed is essential for the upkeep of your premises.

Health Hazards of Bird Droppings

Bird droppings, especially from pigeons, can pose significant health risks to humans when not handled properly. These health hazards can lead to the contraction of various diseases, some of which can be quite serious. In addition to the diseases mentioned, such as Cryptococcosis, Histoplasmosis, and Psittacosis, there are other health risks associated with bird droppings that should also be considered.

E. coli infection: Bird droppings can harbour Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria, which can cause severe gastrointestinal issues, including diarrhoea, abdominal pain, and fever. E. coli infection can be contracted by consuming contaminated food, or water, or coming into contact with contaminated surfaces.

Salmonellosis: Salmonella bacteria can be found in bird droppings and can cause a variety of gastrointestinal symptoms, including diarrhoea, fever, and abdominal cramps. Like E. coli, Salmonella infection can be contracted through contaminated food, water, or surfaces.

Allergic reactions: Bird droppings can trigger allergic reactions in some individuals, causing symptoms such as sneezing, itching, and difficulty breathing. The proteins in the droppings can act as allergens, provoking the immune system and leading to these reactions.

Structural damage and accidents: Accumulated bird droppings can cause damage to buildings and other structures due to their corrosive nature. Additionally, droppings can make surfaces slippery, leading to an increased risk of accidents and injuries.

Prevention and Control Measures

To minimise the health risks associated with bird droppings, it is essential to implement proper prevention and control measures. These may include:

Bird-proofing: Prevent birds from roosting and nesting on buildings and other structures by installing bird deterrents such as spikes, netting, or repellent gels.

Regular cleaning: Regularly clean and disinfect areas where birds tend to gather or leave droppings. This will help reduce the risk of disease transmission and minimise structural damage.

Protective equipment: When cleaning up bird droppings, wear appropriate personal protective equipment, such as gloves, masks, and goggles, to minimise the risk of exposure to pathogens.

Proper waste disposal: Dispose of bird droppings in sealed bags and place them in designated waste disposal containers to prevent the spread of diseases.

Education and awareness: Increase public awareness of the health risks associated with bird droppings and encourage responsible practices to minimise exposure.

By taking these preventive measures, it is possible to reduce the health hazards posed by bird droppings and protect public health.
