Do You Have Birds In Bathroom Vents?
One may ask, “How will I know if I have birds in my bathroom vent?” The first thing that one will begin to notice is the sound of scratching in their bathroom ceiling. Birds have very long claws on their feet, which they use to grip tree limbs and food. When a bird walks in metal vent pipes, it can also sound like a scratching noise. Birds in bathroom vents is a common issue around the Charlotte area. As soon as you hear these sounds, do not hesitate to call Varmint Gone to quickly remove them from your home.
Why Birds Choose To Invade Bathroom Vents
Bathroom vents can be an attractive place for birds to build their nests. Given their high location above the ground, they offer protection from predators and the elements. On the other hand, young birds can also occasionally get stuck in the exhaust pipes and are unable to fly out. On some occasions, adult birds may not be able to escape the narrow space. This happens because their wing movements will become restricted. The problems that can arise from this situation can range in severity. Nonetheless, you should resolve your bird issue as soon as possible.
Potential Hazards & Health Risks of Birds In Bathroom Vents
Birds that congregate around bathroom exhaust vent can create an extremely dangerous situation. The humidity in showers can incubate the growth of histoplasmosis fungus, which is found in bird feces. Babies and individuals with weakened immune systems are highly susceptible to getting Histoplasmosis. The symptoms from contracting it can be lead to severe issues like heart problems and Meningitis.
Having birds in bathroom vents can cause bird lice to have direct access into your living area. Customers have found bird lice falling down inside the bathroom from the vent areas. If the situation reaches this level of severity, contact a professional as soon as possible. Ultimately, it is best to take care of the bird problem before it gets this severe.
