Pest birds alone cause $30-50 million in damages to properties, assets, roofs, drainage, and ventilation systems in the U.S. annually. Much of the damage caused to office properties are the result of pest birds such as gulls, pigeons, sparrows, starlings, turkey vultures, and Canada geese.
Heavily trafficked areas for all logistics properties, in terms of people and pest birds, are loading docks and parking lots. Additionally, these properties tend to be in more suburban environments, clustered next to similar properties types, and have more managed landscaping. Recent pest bird issues we've helped logistics property customers address include:
nesting material clogging rooftop drainage/ gutter systems
bird droppings affecting asset integrity
high concentration of bird droppings on landscaped areas
aggressive, nesting geese near loading dock/ facility access point(s)
Reducing the maintenance and repair costs while also preserving the health and safety of workers who use logistics properties/ facilities starts with adequate problem identification and the correct application of pest bird control solutions.
