Bird Droppings Health Risks

There are many diseases associated with bird waste – some more dangerous than others.

If you discover small amounts that simply look unsightly you can remove the this yourself with the appropriate fluids, face mask and gloves.

Large amounts of bird guano contain a variety of known diseases and secondary infestations such as maggots surrounding dead carcasses of birds, fleas and bird mites which can cause pinprick size lesions and small red bumps. You will often get that itchy feeling!

The main diseases which birds can transmit can be broken down into 3 categories, they are:

  • Bacterial
  • Fungal
  • Viral

Known diseases include:

Histoplasmosis– A fungal disease that is spread to people if they breath in droppings dust.

Salmonella– this could be present in some bird droppings. It is a bacterial infection that can cause significant diarrhoea through the ingestion of contaminated water and food stuffs.

Cryptococcosis – Caused by the systemic pathogenic yeasts which is carried in the intestines of birds. When bird waste is disturbed the fungus contaminates the air. Can affect lungs and nervous system.
