Birds can carry and spread diseases to people and livestock through their droppings.

Some insects that inhabit the nests of birds are also fabric pests and/or pantry pests. The northern fowl mite found on pigeons is an important poultry pest.
Because birds live in such close association with humans, they are a factor in passing on numerous disease, parasites and insect pests. Some of the diseases include chlamydiosis, coccidiosis, erysipeloid, Newcastle’s, parathypoid, pullorum, salmonellosis, transmissible gastroenteritis, tuberculosis, various encephalitis viruses, vibriosis, and yersinosis. Parasites include internal parasites (acariasis, schistosomiasis, taeniasis, toxoplasmosis, and trichomoniasis).
