Bird Control Services
Pigeons and seagulls are two of the bird species that we as pest controllers have to deal with the most. They not only cause a mess, block guttering and chimney flues, and damage loft and roof space, but they can also be a significant health hazard and can spread disease including Salmonella and E.Coli.
There are other reasons why control may be absolutely necessary as well. In numbers they can frequently produce such a volume of waste matter that pavements and entrances can become dangerously slippery, not to mention messy. And they can quickly damage a company’s image if not dealt with. Their nests and roosting sites commonly become infested with fleas, mites and other unwanted insect pests and in actual fact we get many call outs where the birds have been attacking people during their breeding season.
There are a number of proven measures of bird control we can advise on, including netting, spikes and some very effective new non-toxic bird proofing products and deterrents that are ideal for situations where spikes and netting are simply not practical or desirable. Bird work is hazardous, and should absolutely only be carried out be a qualified, licensed, experienced and fully insured professional pest controller in accordance with the Health and Safety Act 1974.
Marked increase in numbers and moving more and more inland. Feeds on refuse and can transmit harmful micro-organisms such as Salmonella.
