Aviary mesh: plastic netting versus metal net.
CHICKENMALLA® aviary mesh is the most effective method to keep birds away from the areas you want to protect.
It is as strong as steel mesh but more economical than metal mesh. In fact it is manufactured from high density extruded polypropylene, through a process of bi-axially orientation. That means that the layers are stretched in two different directions. So it provides higher tensile strength. Thanks to a special treatment against Ultra Violet degradation, it is UV resistant and does not oxidize. Furthermore, as is very flexible and adjustable, it is possible to cut it with common scissors or trimmers to obtain the exact measure of the aviary netting needed. This advantage is particularly important in case of application on trees of different heights and shapes. CHICKENMALLA® aviary net´s almost imperceptible appearance permits its use on all the surfaces, even on historical monuments.
Sanitary danger. Bird borne diseases that can be transmitted to humans and why a bird net would help.
Bird control is required not only because of the huge structural damage birds can cause on buildings, in urban and commercial areas. Avoiding bird droppings on buildings is highly recommended also because of the risk for human health.
It is common to see hens, pigeons, parakeets and parrots perched on attics, park buildings, bridges, cupolas, on the street. However, birds are responsible for many types of diseases that are transmitted through their excrement, which contain bacteria and fungi.
Among respiratory and intestinal diseases that can cause is atypical pneumonia (infection in the lungs by bacteria), avian tuberculosis and allergic alveolitis (inflammation of the lung). If not detected early, this illness could affect the kidneys and heart and even cause death or humans.
Pigeons, geese, starling and house sparrows can lead to several diseases. All of them are transmissible to humans. In fact dried organic matters are easily spread through ventilation systems and transported to the airways or deposited on food.
Example of diseases provoked by birds
- Histoplasmosis caused by a fungus present in dried bird fecal matter.
- Candidiasis spread by pigeons.
- Cryptococcosis fungus derived from pigeons and starlings.
- St. Louis Encephalitis carried by infected house sparrow, pigeons and house finches.
- Salmonellosis originated in bird excrement and spread through air conditioning systems. It contaminates food.
- E.coli infection: bacteria present in bird droppings.
