Like other creatures, sparrows are known for causing damage to buildings. Typically, sparrow damage is done to farmlands and crops. These birds are known for pecking at flowers, buds, seeds, fruits, and vegetables. They usually travel in large groups and feed, so damage can occur over a large area. In homes, sparrows typically cause damage because of their feathers and droppings. They can even cause unsanitary and potentially hazardous conditions if not taken care of, especially in areas where they roost.
Exercising Caution with Sparrows
Always exercise caution with sparrows. They can spread diseases, which are very easily transferred to humans. These birds often live in areas populated by humans, so watch out because they can create unsanitary conditions. They are known for carrying the following diseases:
- Various Encephalitis Viruses
- And more
They can also carry internal parasites, including Acariasis, Schistosomiasis, Taeniasis, Toxoplasmosis, and more. Sparrows can also cause major problems to households and businesses because they may host fleas, lice, mites, ticks, bed bugs, and more.
