Bird fouling can be a serious hazard when in a pubic place such as roofs, guttering, window ledges and shop fronts. More commonly if birds find an opportunity to enter a loft or roof space they will start nesting immediately. We do Bird Spiking and Netting for areas and buildings where birds roost and cause health risks to the public. Bird Spiking and Netting is a very effective way of controlling birds and it doesn’t cost a fortune.

Pigeons pest control servicesPigeons

Feral Pigeons are found all over the UK, especially in cities and towns where there is a large population of people; enjoying the scraps of food and rubbish we leave ‘lying around’, as well as warm buildings to roost and nest, the issue of pigeons being a pest is a topic long debated.

Pigeons are not an aggressive bird, but their habits, especially when they flock in numbers as they are known to do, can present us with some issues:

  • Damage – pigeon droppings can damage builds. Essentially, erosive in nature, if the droppings are not regularly cleaned away, they ammonia in in can slowly ‘eat away’ at the surface of the stone or material.

  • Unsightly – droppings can also be unpleasant; streaking across roofs and down walls, many people find the constant droppings and mess the pigeons leave as being very ugly and not the image they want to portray.

  • Health – new pigeon droppings on pavements can be slippery underfoot but also dealing with dry droppings creates a dust which, if breathed in sufficient quantity and over a period of time, can cause breathing difficulties and, in rarer cases, lung disease.

Luckily we can put an end to this!

Bird netting is one the most effective bird control methods. The net in no way harms the birds, but is very effective in removing roosting and nesting opportunities that will in turn cause the birds to displace away from the affected area. The bird netting is constructed using a perimeter framework cable which is fixed. Spikes is another metod, the system consists of a polycarbonate base and steel spike which is fanned at different angles depending on the specification of bird spike selected which is determined by the species of bird being proofed against and the width of the ledge being protected.
