Hopkinsville continues to deal with a bird problem, though options for moving them along are very limited.
Mayor Dan Kemp said last week that he had received numerous complaints about bird nesting causing a nuisance and assured residents the city’s contractor—McGee Pest Control—was working six days a week to drive them somewhere else.
Corey Keller of McGee says they are doing all they can to drive the birds away using loud noise making devices.
Keller says Hopkinsville seems to be in the birds’ annual navigational track and this year’s problems are primarily in the Great Oaks Subdivision area.
The nesting black birds are mostly a noise nuisance issue, but some fear possible health issues as histoplasmosis can be spread by their excrement.
