Birds are an essential part of our ecosystem and wherever possible should be encouraged and protected. We feed them in our gardens, they eat many pest insects and they bring us joy, watching them in their natural habitat. In certain circumstances however, they do conflict with human interests, and these conflicts must be resolved.
Bird guanno is not only corrosive but is also a carrier of many pathogens and disease such as salmonella, E-Coli and Bird Flu. Birds also have a number of blood feeding parasites which can bite humans. Nesting areas are host to a number of parasites and insects, which, once the birds have vacated the nest, make their way into our homes looking for a new host.
Our bird management puts the emphasis on proofing and prevention. We offer exclusion systems such as wires, nets, spikes etc which prevent the birds from roosting or nesting in a particular area. We offer a complete site survey and explore all options to determine the best solution for you and your property. Successful bird control is often about using a number of methods to manage a situation.
Please call us with your requirements and we will come up with a solution to suit your needs.
Frequently asked questions – Birds
Can I kill or move the bird nest myself?
Absolutely not. Birds are protected by law and any work must be undertaken with full knowledge of any legal implications.
Can we deal with the problem without harming the birds?
We always aim to proof properties and install deterrents. This way the birds aren’t harmed and the customer gets the desired result too.
I have bird droppings in my loft, can I just scrape them up?
Bird droppings can contain some very harmful pathogens and diseases. Inhaling the dust created is not a good idea. For example there are 110 pathogens associated with pigeons alone. We spray the area, remove the droppings and have them properly disposed of.
How much does it cost?
This varies depending on the size of the problem, its location and what is required. Call or email us to talk about your requirements.
