What is Bird Netting?
Bird netting is a humane way of controlling the bird population as it creates a physical barrier between the birds and their favourite nesting spots. This bird-proofing method is installed primarily on roofs, balconies, garages and windows but the applications for bird nets are endless. Bird netting, also known as pigeon netting, is made from a variety of materials, including polyethylene and nylon. These materials are suitable for a huge range of applications depending on the specific pest, location and coverage. Our technicians can install urban bird netting on all commercial buildings, including; Car Parks, Stadiums, Supermarkets, Warehouses, Listed Properties, Offices, Hotels and more.
Why do I need Bird Netting?
Bird pest control is important if you require building protection and bird netting is an incredibly versatile proofing solution. By installing this impenetrable barrier, you will prevent roosting on your property. Some other things to consider are:
Guano, also known as bird poo, is very acidic. This can result in exterior paint peeling away from building facades or cars, causing permanent damage.
In addition, owning a business requires a certain level of upkeep, and guano can be very dirty. Over time, this can result in your property looking very unprofessional.
Guano can also be very slippery, which is a hazard for yourself and visitors. In addition, bird faeces can carry many diseases; therefore, it can be extremely dangerous if you do not take control of your bird infestation.
Bird nests commonly house mites, fleas and ticks, which can also infest your property. This can lead to a much larger infestation issue.
Birds nesting on your roof can result in damaged or dislodged roof tiles. In addition, pigeons, in particular, can cause severe structural damage and block gutters with nest material and guano.
In reference to the Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949, businesses are legally obligated to keep commercial properties free from pests. This is to eliminate the opportunity for contamination and protect staff and visitors. Therefore, you need to take control of your pest issues to avoid forced business closure or fines.
In connection with guano and damage incurred by birds, a customer or staff member could slip or hurt themselves due to damaged property. If this happens, you could find your business in a tricky legal situation.
Is Bird Netting Effective?
Birds are incredibly intelligent and creative creatures; therefore, DIY bird-proofing solutions only work for a short time. Although they are cheaper and quicker to install, owl decoys, for example, will only prove effective in the short run. Birds will identify that these fake owls have not moved in a while, and they will learn to ignore them.
Installing bird netting for balconies, buildings, and warehouses is the most definitive way to stop birds from resting on your property. By creating this barrier which they cannot chew through, you are eliminating comfortable spots for birds to nest. As the birds are unable to get through these nets, they will move on.
