Birds can be a beautiful sight but they can also be looked upon as a serious problem. These problems are even more prevalent in airports. Not only can birds cause headaches and health hazards to workers and customers, but they also are threats to the aircraft.
Dangers Involving An Aircraft
A bird strike involves a collision between an individual or flock of birds with an aircraft. No matter the size of the bird or aircraft, a strike can be dangerous. According to Birdstrike Committee USA, bird and other wildlife strikes to air crafts result in over $900 million in damage to US civil and military aviation every year. Being proactive and preventing birds from access to runways and airports can not only save money but also save lives.
Health Hazards From Birds
Bird droppings can contain diseases like salmonella and psittacosis causing potential harm to employees and guests. Regular cleanings of equipment and property can be a short term solution, but investing in a long term solution like a liquid bird repellent will save the company time and money.
Awareness of Surrounding Areas
Airports provide a good amount of nesting area from their landscaping or buildings. However, an airport isn’t just runways and watchtowers. There are also ponds and trees that can attract birds, who are always on the lookout for new nesting areas. Think ahead and search the areas of your property that will potentially attract birds.
