Session 3: Mitigating The Threat Of Invasive Birds
Birds are unique problem in commercial properties because they can easily navigate between facilities that are miles apart and deliver pathogens in their droppings that contain harmful bacteria including listeria, E. coli and salmonella. In the past invasive bird control was often overlooked or a minor element when it came to third-party audits and government inspections but that is not the case anymore. Closer scrutiny and increased demand to safely steward food and packaging materials from farm to table, makes mitigating the threat of invasive birds essential.
