What You Need To Know About Magpies

Magpies belong to the crow family. They live off insects, berries, grubs, carrion and sometimes snails and frogs. They are also known to kill little pets such as guinea pig babies. When they are breeding, they will often complement their diet by looting the nests of birds that are smaller than they are and consume their baby chicks and eggs. The Magpie is the most frequently seen bird in Britain. Magpies are believed to have played a part in the rapid decrease in songbirds over the past several years.

When A Magpies Problem Becomes A Pest Problem

It was only fairly recently that some birds, including Magpies, became seen as pests that need their own pest control methods. Birds can overrun your home, your business and your community. Unless they are eliminated and controlled by a professional pest control company, they can quickly become a nuisance.

Not only are birds a nuisance, they also pose health problems to humans. Pests such as fleas, ticks and mites thrive in bird-infested areas. The bird droppings can also contaminate air ducts, which can cause serious health issues if not addressed quickly and correctly. Birds are known to carry diseases that can be transferred to humans such as salmonella and psittacosis. Birds, their nesting materials as well as their droppings are known to carry up to 60 different diseases, which can be transmitted to humans as well as their pets.
