Phoenix Pest Control Can Help Free Your Attic from Pigeon Infestation

Birds make good pets. They are easy to care for and train, and offers meaningful interaction. Recent studies show that keeping birds is good for your mental health; however, some birds can cause more harm than good, especially when uninvited. Pigeons are the best example of birds that can turn from pets to pests. While they look adorable, pigeons can be troublesome when they start living in your Phoenix home’s attic without your knowledge.

Dangers of Pigeon Infestation

Pigeons may seem harmless but they can be a perfect mechanism for spreading disease as they travel great distances. They are known to carry over 40 types of parasites and host over 60 types of infectious diseases. The most common diseases they can host include histoplasmosis (characterized by fatigue, fever, and chest pains) and psittacosis (characterized by rash, chills, and sometimes pneumonia). Pigeons can pass on these diseases to humans through their droppings.

They may also use baits and nests to capture them and prevent newcomers from roosting.
