Bird Droppings are a risk to health and their nest harbour insects and can block gutters. The hazards of bird presence makes it essential to get professional help.
The main bird species that we control are Feral Pigeons, Sparrows, Starlings, Canada Geese and Seagulls.
All species are protected at all times with special exceptions when there is a risk of the spread of disease, serious damage or a danger to human health and safety.
Each situation will be risk assessed prior to any action.
The Feral Pigeons diet has grown to include food discarded by well-intentioned people. With all this food available, numbers are on the up, but these colourful, head-bobbing city dwellers need to be controlled when they are in the wrong place or their population increases.
When Sparrows enter a food premises or warehouse contamination is almost inevitable and if conditions are right they will make it their home and may never leave. The first priority is to eliminate entry points by sealing gaps and closing doors. Any food sources should be protected to encourage the birds into thinking that this is not the right place for them. A general licence can be applied for to trap the birds or shoot them if all other precautions fail.
The Canada Geese population has increased dramatically in urban and suburban areas in recent years. These birds were encouraged to breed a few decades ago and now they are considered pests.
Seagulls are perhaps best known as being a scavenger. It is most often seen in large, noisy flocks congregating wherever food is available. Whilst you would associate them with fishing boats, they become a pest around picnic grounds, parking lots, office roofs and refuse tips.
Seagulls become aggressive when breeding and will take the food from your hand. Their large nests can block gutters and cause floods in buildings. Control can be achieved with egg oiling, physical deterrents such as spikes or nets or the use of our Falconry Team.
