Prevent Myna’s with Gutter Guard & Bird Proof Your Home
There are a wide range of bird species in Australia and unfortunately some of these species are a nuisance for homeowners. One of the most common pests are Starlings.
Starlings were introduced into Australia during the 1880’s, to destroy insect pests. They are now one of the most common bird species in suburban areas in the south eastern part of Australia.
They feed on protein, namely invertebrates as well as fruit, vegetables, meat, seeds and food scraps. Starlings breed seasonally most commonly in August and September each year. As pairs, they nest in eaves, roofs ceilings, tree hollows, holes in the ground, shrubs, tree stumps and even fence posts.

Starlings carry a range of allergens, bacteria, parasites and infectious diseases such as salmonella, meningitis and histoplasmosis.
These are spread via their droppings which can become airborne when dry or carried into a property or on the soles of shoes. Furthermore a decomposing starling can contaminate a water supply due to displaced parasites which can lead to other pest infestations.
Starling nests consist of sticks, leaves, feathers and other materials that are highly flammable, that poses a serious threat to building. This is especially dangerous when nests are created near electrical boxes or near machinery.
In addition, nests are created in a destructive manner and as their droppings are corrosive. This can cause extensive surface damage to homes and buildings.
