Birds that congregate in large numbers on your business premises and become a general pest can cause you quite a few health and safety implications which you should aim to address as soon as you can.
- Birds can cause serious damage to the fabric of your commercial building and their droppings can create slip and trap hazards for the general public, your staff and your customers.
- Birds can block your guttering, dislodge roof tiles, create nests and leave behind nesting materials, insects and bacteria which will corrode the building fabric.
- Birds carry a number of diseases and insects that can potentially cause you harm
- Birds can also become aggressive during the breeding season and have been known to swoop and attack people.
The unsightly mess that bird droppings can create could also seriously tarnish the perception of your business and be damaging to your brand image. In light of these issues then it makes sense to deal with any bird control problems at your business premises as soon as possible to minimise risk and to keep your reputation in tact.
