Bird Proofing Your Commercial Property

No, you didn’t read the title wrong–bird proofing your commercial property is a specialty service KEVCO provides, and it’s extremely important! Each year birds cause millions of dollars in damage to commercial properties around the world. These feathered friends are known to cause damage to building rooftops, hvac units, and seek shelter in vents and other areas that are easy to get into and offer protection from the outside elements. When birds decide to move into your building, they will without a doubt leave damages behind!

How to Identify A Bird Problem

Identifying a bird problem is usually pretty simple, because you can typically hear them chirping. If you notice an unusual amount of birds around your property, debris collecting on ledges, or bird droppings, then you more than likely have some new feathered roommates.

Damages Caused by Birds

Damages caused from birds on the inside and outside of your building can be a huge pain and create a hazardous environment for you, your employees, and customers. When birds build nests they usually create debris in unwanted areas that can be fire hazards, and leave behind nasty droppings. Being exposed to bird droppings can be extremely dangerous because of the various diseases they carry including Histoplasmosis, Candidiasis, St. Louis Encephalitis, Salmonella, E.coli, and many more. Besides the diseases they carry, they also carry ectoparasites, such as fleas, lice, mites, and ticks.

How KEVCO Can Help

By contacting our team of Bird-Proofing consultants, KEVCO can devise a solution to your bird-proofing dilemma by installing a bird-deterrent system such as stealthNet, stainless steel bird spikes, bird coil or wire, and shock flex wire. Our upmost concern is to keep the relationship between birds and buildings a friendly and humane one.
