Are Pigeon Droppings Becoming a Problem?

Are Pigeon Droppings Becoming a Problem?


People typically find pigeons and other birds to be the most fowl and disease-ridden creatures that dwell in almost all areas of the world. They have been everywhere and they carry whatever they pick up with them. The worst part is that they make a home out of places where the most people are, usually. The more people populated, the more pigeons. What’s more disease-ridden than the birds themselves are their droppings.


Pigeon droppings appear to be the most important source of the disease fungus Cryptococcus Neoformans in the environment. The fungus is typically found in accumulations of droppings around roosting and nesting sites, for example, attics, ledges and water towers. In fact, 84% of samples taken from old roosts contain this fungus. Even dry and old, bird droppings can be a significant source of infection.


Other diseases transmitted by birds have a less-harmful effect, but serious illness can occur. Psittacosis is normally a mild infection caused by a human’s contact with the droppings.


To avoid contracting these diseases, your best bet is to treat the areas where pigeons nest. If you are treating areas that are around your living space, then you will want a product that is all natural and will not harm the health of you, your children or your pets. PiGNX uses the active ingredient capsaicin, which is extracted from hot peppers, to safely and effectively rid your area of pigeons and other birds. Capsaicin works by irritating nerve-endings and has the same effects on pests as it would on us. Imagine the feeling we get by eating hot chili peppers; this is the same sensation that birds feel when they come onto contact with PiGNX. Don’t worry about harsh chemicals harming your family or pets- this product is all natural, humane and will efficiently rid your area of pests that produce disease-spreading droppings.
