12 Aug Protect Your Roof This Bird Nesting Season
Spring is Bird Breeding Season
It’s been a cold wet winter in Melbourne however spring is almost upon us.
Spring is a fantastic time of year as our gardens bloom and weather warms. However it also signals the start of the bird breeding season, for a range of species. And where do some birds love to breed? Your roof.
From September to March, a range of introduced bird species breed vigorously and cause damage to people roofs all over Melbourne. Birds can find and enter small cavities in the roof corners or just above the corrugated rise. They are relentless until they find a place to get in. One key species that causes significant concerns are Indian Myna’s.
Indian Myna’s are often called ‘rats of the skies’ and pose many potential health risks to humans due to factors such as bird mites and faeces dust. They also have a negative impact on native birds due to competition for food and nesting locations. However unlike most native birds, Indian Myna’s prefer to nest in artificial structures such as residential or commercial areas rather than in vegetation. Once their nest has been established, they aggressively defend their territory and over time this can lead to the risk of disease to humans and the potential of causing fire, especially if they nest in roof cavities.
