Pigeons Destroy Bridges and Can Kill People with Over 30 Contagious Diseases: Construction Workers that Re-Paint Bridges, Decontamination Workers, Farmers, and Local Residents

This disease is very dangerous to workers and nearby residents. Dusts containing H. capsulatum spores can be aerosolized during construction, excavation, or demolition. Once airborne, spores can be carried easily by wind currents over long distances.

Such contaminated airborne dusts can cause infections not only in persons at a work site, but also in others nearby. Such activities were suggested as the causes of the three largest outbreaks of histoplasmosis ever recorded. All three outbreaks took place in

Pigeons Destroy Bridges

Indianapolis, Indiana. During the first outbreak, in the fall of 1978 and spring of 1979, an estimated 120,000 people were infected, and 15 people died. The second outbreak, in 1980, was similar to the first in the number of people affected. AIDS patients accounted for nearly 50% of culture-proven cases during the third outbreak, in 1988.

  1. Pigeons poop destroy bridges.  Pigeons roost under bridges and their poop or droppings are salty and acidic to steel and concrete. 
  2. Pigeon poop or droppings contain many deadly diseases easily contracted by workers who clean and remove pigeon droppings.  Construction workers that have to clean pigeon droppings from under the bridges can contract deadly diseases by just breathing “poop air”.  Bridge re-painting construction workers need to be protected by bio-hazard suits when working near these deadly diseases. Any laborer who has to clean pigeon poop should be protected from the 30 fungal, viral, and bacterial diseases in pigeon poop.  Pigeons are natural bioterrorists with their airborne diseases causing 120,000 cases of Histoplasmosis in Indianapolis in 1978-79 and another 120,000 in 1980 in the same city. 15 people died. 
  3. Pigeons consume and contaminate large quantities of food destined for human or livestock consumption. 
  4. Pigeons located around airports can also be a threat to human safety because of potential bird-aircraft collisions, and are considered a medium priority hazard to jet aircraft by the US Air Force. 
  5. Children need to be taught the dangers of pigeon roosts and their deadly diseases.
