PIGEONS

 

 
 

Pigeons are very adaptable birds. Once nesting in rock ledges and cliffs, these birds are now found in most major cities.

These birds drop excrement from their roosts and nesting sites. Their nests are unsightly and a potential health hazard. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, contact with pigeon droppings can pose a health risk. Three human diseases are known to be associated with pigeon droppings: histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and psittacosis.

DISEASES PEOPLE GET FROM PIGEONS

Histoplasmosis is a disease caused by a fungus, which grows in pigeon droppings. Symptoms of histoplasmosis begin to appear about 10 days after initial infection and include fatigue, fever, and chest pains.  Those with compromised immune systems such as cancer patients or people living with HIV/AIDS are generally more at risk of developing histoplasmosis. The disease cannot be transmitted from person to person.

Cryptococcosis is another fungal disease associated with pigeon droppings.  A major risk factor for infection is a compromised immune system. According to the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), nearly 85 percent of cryptococcosis patients are HIV-positive.

Psittacosis can occur when bird droppings dry and become airborne. People may inhale them and get sick. In humans, this bacterial disease is characterized by: fatigue, fever, headache, rash, chills, and sometimes pneumonia. Symptoms develop about 10 days after exposure. Psittacosis can be treated with a common antibiotic.
