Pigeons, also known as rock doves, are very common birds found all over the world. Pigeon feathers are typically grey, but can range anywhere from white to tan to black. Pigeon feet are often red and their rumps white. Pigeons were originally domesticated birds, but have since become feral, and are now the most common bird pest known to humans.
Pigeons do carry diseases, which is probably why they have been referred to as flying rats. Ornithosis, encephalitis, Newcastle disease, cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, toxoplasmosis and salmonella are just a few of the illnesses spread by contact with pigeon poop and dead pigeons.
Cryptococcosis,one of the commonly carried pigeon diseases, infects the lungs of humans. It is transmitted by inhaling the yeast-like cells of the organism. Cryptococcosis can also cause acne-like ulcers on the skin.
Histoplasmosis, is a fungal disease contracted through airborne spores in pigeon droppings. If pigeons have been on your roof for a while, these spores can even infect the soil in your garden down below. Its symptoms may be anything from a mild influenza to blood abnormalities and fever, or even death. An eye condition has been linked to the bird disease histoplasmosis and can lead to blindness in those who contract it.
Bird mites are generally associated with moist or humid conditions and are most active during spring and early summer and are naturally found where birds (such as pigeons, starlings, sparrows and poultry) and their nests are located.They may move into living spaces in houses, climbing on walls, ceilings and bedding in search of a blood meal.
Humans can be exposed to bird mites when young birds leave their nests and the mite is left without a suitable host to feed from.
