Glasgow Hospital Spends More than $500,000 to Kill Pests after Pigeon Droppings Crisis
Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow has spent 450,000 £ ($545,236) to kill pests after deaths linked to pigeon droppings, according to the Daily Record.
Pest teams at the hospital have had to shoot pigeons, install anti-bird spikes and netting and use chemicals to kill mold and fungus since January.
Combatting vermin at the hospital accounts for more than half of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s entire spend on pest control for all of its facilities in Glasgow, Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and West Dunbartonshire.
Two patients at the hospital, a 10-year-old boy and a 73-year-old woman, were being treated for the fungal infection cryptococcus before they died.
