Bird control is important because pest birds can create health-related problems through their feces, including histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and psittacosis. Bird droppings may also cause damage to property and equipment.Click here for more information on birds >
Bees and Wasps
Bees and wasps cause painful stings by injecting venom through a dart–like needle in their tails. While bees leave their darts behind, stuck in your skin and subsequently die, wasps do not lose their dart, and do not die after the sting therefore are able to sting repeatedly.
