Pressure Washing, Waste Clean up

Bird droppings on the sidewalk can be unsightly and a health hazard. With warm weather the birds are back in town, and so is their bird shit, leaving people wondering  Does Trapper Nick remove bird shit or bird poop from many different surfaces? The answer is yes !. Bird poop stains can be very difficult to remove form certain surfaces if you don't know the tricks to get them out. Like most stains the sooner you can get to cleaning the stain the easier it will be. Sometimes soaking affected areas will improve stain visibility when finished. There are a couple of different soaps, disinfectants, and Bio Degraders I use for waste clean up depending how bad the situation is.

Bird poop and Histoplasmosis 

Histoplasmosis is an infectious disease of the lungs caused by a fungus called Histoplasma capsulatum. The infection sometimes can spread to other parts of the body.

This Histoplasma organism thrives in moderate temperatures and moist environments. Droppings from chickens, pigeons, starlings, blackbirds, and bats support its growth. Birds are not infected with it because of their high body temperatures, but they do carry it on their feathers. Bats can be infected because they have a lower body temperature than birds and can excrete the organism in their droppings. Because bats populate them, caves often are sites where multiple people become infected simultaneously.

To multiply, Histoplasma capsulatum produces small spores called conidia. The conidia of Histoplasma capsulatum are only two millionths of a meter (microns, µm) in diameter. When these conidia are inhaled, they are small enough that they enter the lungs and start an infection. Many of these infections are easily overlooked because they either produce mild symptoms or none at all. However, histoplasmosis can be severe and produce an illness similar to tuberculosis.

When a person breathes in the conidia (spores) of Histoplasma capsulatum, the lungs' defense mechanisms attempt to neutralize them. Not all the conidia are neutralized. The ones that avoid the defense start an infection. The symptoms of the infection appear within 5 to 18 days after exposure, most commonly in 10 days.
