Different Birds As Pests In New Zealand
Like any other region, New Zealand too has a wide range of birds that have time and again proved to be detrimental to humans.
Feral pigeons don’t merely damage your property with fecal droppings, but like parrots, they also carry viruses that might lead to fever, drowsiness, and nausea in some cases. To prevent infestation, get rid of pigeon immediately by consulting experts.
Initially introduced for assisting farmers in controlling the infestation of insects in livestock, starlings have now evolved as a pest themselves. They breed in October and November. They normally rear one brood a year in holes in trees or walls, and under roof tiles. The clutch of four to seven eggs hatch after 12-13 days, and the chicks fledge in 15 days.
House sparrows were introduced to New Zealand first in the mid 1860s. By the 1880s, they were regarded as pests. Sparrows have made their own way to offshore islands, breeding on those with human habitation. Sparrows breed from spring to summer. The clutch of 3-5 eggs are incubated by both parents and the chicks fledge in 15 days.
Mynahs were introduced in New Zealand during the 1870s. However, they’ve soon turned out to be a nuisance because of their aggressive and territorial habits. Mynahs are known for removing other birds from their nests in a bid to live there and feed on their livestock.
While a feathered bird-like parrot might seem harmless, they cause significant damage to homes and property. Their feathers and droppings often contain viruses that might eventually lead to harmful ailments in humans.
Signs Of Bird Infestation
The birds of New Zealand can be spectacular, but they can also be a source of pain, especially when they start nesting on your residential or commercial property. Yes, even the most innocent looking birds like parrots, pigeons, mynahs, crows, and sparrows can pose major health issues to you and your loved ones. But how do you understand if your property is being subjected to bird infestation? Are there some tell-tale signs you should look out for?
The primary sign is perhaps the most obvious one of the lot! If your property is indeed infested by birds, you will notice them nesting on your houses or even sleeping there. If you find several birds hanging out in your homes, chances are, you already have an infestation or are likely to face it in a couple of days.
The next sign to look out for is bird droppings. If your property is indeed infested by birds, you will find a huge chunk of bird droppings on flat areas as well as along the perimeter of your property.
You find a large number of insects in your home or office space. These insects alone might be attracting these birds in the first instance. There are a large number of pests that are usually associated with the pest birds. These can be flies, fleas, ants, and even mice. You find a persistent foul smell in and around your property that can’t really be blamed on your garbage or any rotting material. The final sign is that you sudden observe a higher level of bird activities in and around your area.
In case you experience on or more of these signs, it is important to consult bird proofing experts right away. These experts offer the best solutions for keeping birds away from your property. The best part: they do it humanely. These experts employ the highest standards in making your property fully unwelcome for any and every bird.

Damage To Property And Health
Some of the birds in New Zealand are pests, and if you do not check them in due course, they will end up damaging your vineyard, gardens, crops, vegetables, properties, eventually resulting in major economic losses. Blackbirds, starlings, mynahs, and pigeons have been known to damage the buds of kiwifruit even before they emerge. The result: significant damage in crops. The presence of these exotic birds in both urban and rural regions might also damage the property and the food processing regions by the accumulation of droppings on fences, structures, trees, tables of restaurants, car roofs and even bonnets. Bird deterrent solutions are even more essential as most birds carry a wide range of ailments like protozoa, virus, and micro-plasma that might eventually be relayed to humans through infected droppings, and through the inhalation of aerosols, and contact with the feather dust of these birds. In almost every case, you will need professional help to get these pertinent issues addressed. It is also important to note here that several newly introduced birds will kill the native ones for establishing their territorial range. This eventually affects our environment.
