While birds fluttering and chirping outside the window is pleasant to the senses, when they perch on the windows and crevices on the buildings, the acidic bird droppings and the nests they build are not only disturbing, but also unhygienic. The woes are more complex when the birds end up inside your bedrooms, balcony and kitchen.
Nowadays, problems caused by pigeons and other birds are major irritants to residents of almost all major housing and office complexes. This is not just an irritant but also a health hazard. Birds get easy access to get good nesting areas on the windows, pipes, parapets, inside the duct and behind AC units. Many pigeons die in the ducts causing large presence of maggots & other insects in the affected area. They often make nests and rapidly reproduce causing major health risks. Three human diseases are known to be associated with pigeon droppings: histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and psittacosis.
Histoplasmosis is caused by the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum, which grows in pigeon droppings. This disease primarily affects the lungs and other organs which if left untreated can prove to be fatal.
Cryptococcosis, also known as cryptococcal disease, is another fungal disease associated with pigeon droppings and also grows in soils throughout the world.
Psittacosis, also known as parrot fever is a zoonotic infectious disease caused by a bacterium called Chlamydophila psittaci and contracted from parrots, pigeons and sparrows.When bird droppings dry and become airborne people may inhale them and get sick.

It provides an inpenetrable barrier that birds cannot break through and do not cause harm to the birds. Most of the city apartments and offices use this method to bird proof their homes and premises and avoid health hazards caused by this birds.
