Bird Proofing

The purpose of bird proofing an area is to move birds on safely without causing any harm to the bird.

The best method to stop birds getting into a property is by blocking off all means of entry. This is very easy in a domestic environment however when you look at bigger commercial buildings this can be a lot harder. There may be large roller doors that need to be open all day for example however there are still measures that can be put in place such as plastic curtains to deter birds from getting in.

In general, if you can keep the birds away from the outside then this will assist with the problem with them trying to get in. Window ledges are a common place for the larger birds to roost or even nest, for something such as this we can introduce some spikes for example to stop them being able to get onto the ledge. Fouling is a big problem caused by birds perching or roosting on external structures, pigeons are guilty of this. Several systems can be used to protect the building which involve either covering parts of the building with a barrier or adding a deterrent making it undesirable for a bird.

Some of the more common methods of bird proofing are Bird Netting Systems that will quiet simply deny Access by exclusion. You also have anti perching systems such as Pin and Wire, Spike systems and the newer Optical Gel. We can also fit electrical bird deterrent systems that issue a small shock to act as a deterrent that will move the bird along.

The list goes on with lots of other products that can be used, some in conjunction with others. All these systems will need a survey to be completed to identify what system is needed and what is wanted by the customer, so if you have a need for a bird proofing service we will always come out and give advice as to what methods are recommended for the task and price the work accordingly.
