Diseases From Birds Are a Danger Now

CHICAGO, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 7, 2005 -- While birds and associated diseases are hot news right now, it’s old news to us at Bird-X, Inc. People worry and wonder about bird flu jumping species -- but in fact there are already over 60 different human diseases associated with birds and their droppings, some of which can be fatal.

Pest birds and their droppings cause unsafe and unhealthy conditions and require costly cleanup and repair. Droppings on pallets of food or pharmaceuticals are unacceptable. In fact OSHA and other agencies have the power to cite, fine, and possibly shut down companies for bird mess problems. Slip-and-fall accidents on bird droppings or Canada goose droppings can prompt lawsuits. Messy, dropping-laden shopping centers and office buildings cause bad press, plus these ugly premises offend employees and potential customers. Millions of unnecessary man-hours are expended cleaning the droppings and repairing the damage to structures and hard goods -- our GNP could increase if these hours were spent on more productive activities.
