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 clear when you cannot keep them from nesting or roosting on your CO business or home.
What makes them a nuisance? Pest bird feathers, droppings, and waste can be a problem for a variety of reasons. They often result in causing property damage, unsanitary conditions, and a potential health hazard. 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, large 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.
