Bye-bye birdie?

EQUUS - - Letters -

I hon­estly wish I could keep the birds out of my barn (“Go­ing to the Birds?” Hands On, EQUUS 450). They carry a fun­gus/bac­te­ria that, un­for­tu­nately, I’m al­ler­gic to---which I didn’t know un­til re­cently. Grack­les had taken over my barn and left a hor­ri­ble mess. I power-washed all the hard sur­faces, and un­be­knownst to me, the dried-up drop­pings floated through the air I breathed, and I ended up with a dou­ble lung in­fec­tion.

Now I must com­pletely cover up and wear a mask just so I can get any items needed to feed my horses, even if it’s 90 de­grees! Cats, dogs, snakes, netting, re­mov­ing nests, etc., have had no ef­fect on them. I will not give up my horses to th­ese fly­ing ver­min and will con­tinue my quest to ef­fec­tively re­move them from my barn. Jeanne Luep­pen At­tica, Michi­gan
