Businesses and residents alike face bird issues throughout the Tucson area. Birds are common and can be quite destructive, messy and create a serious health concern, especially pigeons. Pigeons are often called “rats of the skies,” because they are associated with filth. An example of their filthy habits includes nesting in their own feces, which leads to mites, parasites, and disease that can affect humans. Their feces is also very acidic and can cause damage and staining of most surfaces, thus pigeons are the nuisance pest of the skies.
Issues that birds create:
• Roosting or nesting around roofs or attics
• Wrecking vegetation and contaminating foods
• Diseases or ectoparasites affecting man including histoplasmosis and
• Create unpleasant or hazardous working conditions
• Permanently damage buildings and property.
• Can quickly build excessive populations, that exponentiate other issues

Each building is unique offering many nesting sites under solar panels, coolers, AC units, signs, eaves, gutters, and a dozen other potential nesting areas.
