Birds Control: Pets Or Pests
Birds can be great pets kept in cages or housed in a protected sanctuary where they live and breed freely under a controlled environment. But sometimes, they can also become a nuisance because of the diseases that they carry causing humans to experience lung problems, brain infections, and sometimes multi-organ failure that leads to fatality.
Among the dreaded diseases contracted from birds in Singapore and the rest of the world is Influenza A (H1N1) which caused a global stir in 2010 because of the unexpected increase in the number of patients seeking treatment for the illness.
At present, the disease is already on green alert according to the Singaporean government which means that the prevalence of the problem has decreased but the battle is not over yet as long as the number of birds coming in and out of the vicinity is still uncontrolled, hence, it is still important to continue being on the lookout.
Birds Control, An Aid In Decreasing The Spread Of Diseases
Bird control practices do not merely entail restraining the creatures from flying because they also play an important role in pollination and seed dispersal; rather, it refers to the regulation of the possible diseases that they carry.
Healthy Human Practices And Birds Control
In reality, people have no way of instantly proclaiming that the feathered animal that landed on the porch of their house is carrying a virus that can cause a life-threatening disease, because of this it is important to either practice avoidance or prevention.
In avoidance, it simply means that one should avoid going near or holding the winged mammal. While in prevention, it is focused on measures that halt the spread of the virus, thus, stopping the diseases to occur. According to the Singapore Health Promotion Board (HPB), citizens can minimize the risk of contracting any illness through the observation of good environmental hygiene; while the World Health Organization (WHO) states that hand hygiene or proper and regular hand washing is a good defense against unwanted diseases.
