Every year hordes of pigeons and certain other pest birds deface hundreds of millions of dollars worth of otherwise beautiful buildings. Their noise, mess, and health hazards are a decided menace.
This year, an estimated 150,000 people in the United States alone will contract the common cold or flu-like disease, histoplasmosis. The blame can be placed directly on the fungus bearing droppings associated with infestations of pigeons and starlings. Skin tests by the National Communicable Disease Center in Atlanta, GA indicate that more than 30,000,000 people living in the United States have had the disease. A closely related serious disease, cryptococcosis, also stems from the droppings of pigeons. Salmonella Typhimurium, the most frequent cause of Salmonella poisoning in man, is also present in one pigeon of every 50 studied by the Public Health Service.
Mites found on pigeons and sparrows will infest upholstered furniture, bedding and even humans. In storage warehouses, pigeons and sparrows will cause severe damage to equipment and materials. Utility companies report heavy damage to circuits and equipment. Communities report water and food contamination. Gulls, blackbirds and certain other pest birds have been directly responsible for many airline accidents with immeasurable loss of life and money.
Avitrol, a chemically treated bait, causes the pestbirds to vacate the area. This occurs when a few of the birds which ingest the treated bait react in such a way that causes the others to be frightened away. Some will die but most will be dispersed to "safer, more desirable locations."
Avitrol is a product developed by millions of dollars worth of research over a period of years. Hundreds of professional pest control operators and animal management specialists from coast to coast use Avitrol with complete confidence.
