Birds are considered vermin for several reasons including their ability to spread diseases and damage properties.
Not unlike rats, birds can carry ectoparasites such as mites which can be transferred to humans and cause diseases such as E. Coli, Salmonella and Ornithosis.
While bird nests can dislodge roof tiles and leave debris in drains and gutters, their droppings are highly corrosive and can damage your home interiors. More so, bird nests attract other pests such as bird mites, fleas and textile beetles, meaning a bird problem can sometimes lead to further pest infestations.

Feral pigeons, seagulls, house sparrows, collared doves and black-backed gulls are among the birds that are considered vermin.
