Non-native birds such as pigeons, house sparrows, and European starlings were introduced into the United States in the 17th century and have since become a problem in the US, Colorado, and Mesa County. These non-native bird species are now considered nuisance pests, which becomes especially clear when you cannot keep them from nesting or roosting on your business or home.
What makes these birds a nuisance? Typical signs are feathers, droppings, and waste from pest birds. These signs can be a problem for a variety of reasons. They often result in property damage, unsanitary conditions, and potential health hazards. When bird droppings are consistently found on roofs, cars, sidewalks, and buildings, they are not only unsightly and smelly but also corrosive.
In addition to damage, high amounts of droppings also can kill vegetation and can pose health problems for people and animals. For example, pest bird and pigeon feces have been found to contain over 60 different diseases and 40 different parasites that could be passed to you, your loved ones, pets, clients, or employees.
