MG or mycoplasma gallisepticum only lasts in the environment for about 3 days. It may live a bit longer in frozen droppings. Usually with removal of the infected birds, cleaning the equipment, and waiting a few weeks, it is safe to start over with new healthy chicks. Here is a good article with some info:

Do you by chance know how long MS and ILTV last in the soil?
MG/MS lasts in the environment for 3 days. Here's a good link:

As far as ILT goes, it is a fragile virus in the environment. However it is still infectious in feces, feathers etc.
Here is info on ILT: Scroll down to "Field virus survival and inactivation."

Here's another link: Scroll down to "Prevention" and read the last paragraph:
