Birds of Prey May Become a Bigger Problem if You Have Mice

One negative consequence of a mice infestation is that mice attract wild predators. One class of predator that feeds primarily on mice are birds of prey. Though barn owls are considered beneficial to farm owners, birds of prey in suburban environments can damage homes with their nesting and hunting. Mice are a gateway to larger, more aggressive house pests, which is one of many reasons why homeowners should seek professional exterminators as soon as they discover signs of mice infestation.

Gutter Damage

Birds of prey frequently build nests in gutters. The nest itself can damage the gutter and surrounding area both directly – due to the nest itself – and indirectly – through damage caused by pooling water and clogged water. In addition, water that does not flow can attract additional pests such as mosquitoes.

Roof Damage

Another common nesting place for birds are corners of houses’ roofs. Since birds’ droppings are highly acidic, birds will damage the area around where they live. In addition, birds that congregate on the roof can severely damage or destroy a roof with their droppings. And birds can enter a home through a hole in the roof, directly exposing its residents to droppings and avian parasites such as mites.

Ventilation Risks

A bird infestation can be lethal when birds’ nests block a chimney. Blocked chimneys can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. Even when birds’ nests don’t block a chimney completely, the nests themselves are fire hazards. And birds’ acidic droppings can damage the chimney and endanger the health of the home’s residents.
