Pigeons: The most common nuisance bird that we deal with is pigeons. Pigeons are common in urban areas of Missouri. They like to roost on various urban structures, such as beams, ledges, and store signs. There, they poop all over the place. This defecation is of particular concern in public areas, not just because it is unsightly, but because it is unsanitary.
Nuisance Concerns: The most relevant problem involving birds, pigeons in particular, is that they leave their droppings behind. In the case of pigeons, these droppings may accumulate and create unsanitary conditions. Add the fact that pigeons usually roost in busy urban areas, and it means that he droppings are inconveniently located. If the droppings accumulate over time inside a structure, they can grow the fungus that can cause the lung infection histoplasmosis.
