While it may be relaxing to hear birds in the morning, they can also be too close for comfort. If they are nested behind your shutters, constant chirping may interrupt your sleep habits. Birds behind shutters cause damage to your home and may expose you to diseases.
Why are birds behind shutters harmful?
Not only can nuisance birds leave a large mess, they also cause damage to your home. Birds nesting behind shutters is a very common occurrence we see in homes with a stone exterior featuring mounted shutters. The nesting debris hangs around the windows surrounded by droppings. If they are not cleaned constantly, the droppings corrode and destroy exterior elements of your home. Moreover, while the outdoor temperatures rise, odors from their nests become pungent.
Diseases they carry
In addition to the noise, mess, and odor, they also carry bacteria and diseases. Histoplasmosis, Toxoplasmosis, West Nile Virus, Salmonella are just a few they carry. Hundreds of different microscopic mites and parasites are found on birds and in their droppings.
