Starling Damage and Prevention
Starlings are small to medium-size birds that are known for their ability to mimic other types of birds and environmental sounds. Over the years, starlings have been known to cause significant property damage with their droppings and nesting habits. They travel in large flocks, which make it difficult to prevent property damage. Communities often create management programs made up of strategies that prevent starlings from venturing into certain regions.
In your community, if starlings are present, it is important to maintain a safe environment. Starlings carry infectious diseases such as histoplasmosis, cryptococcus, toxoplasmosis, encephalitis and salmonellas. By scheduling regular area clean-ups, you can prevent the spread of harmful illnesses. Each of these illnesses can be contracted by cats, dogs, livestock and humans due to the fungi and bacteria contained in feces.
