Why Bird Control Can be Necessary
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 also. In numbers birds can quite often generate such a volume of waste matter that pavements and entrances can become dangerously slippery, in addition to the mess. And they can quickly tarnish a company’s image if not taken care of. Their nests and roosting sites frequently become infested with fleas, mites and other unwanted insect pests, and in actual fact we get a lot of 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 suitable for situations where spikes and netting are simply not practical or desirable. Bird work is dangerous, and should absolutely only be performed by a qualified, licensed, experienced and fully insured professional pest controller in accordance with the Health and Safety Act 1974.
Marked rise in numbers and moving increasingly more inland. Feeds on refuse and can transmit harmful micro-organisms such as Salmonella.
Major problem in towns and cities. Messy, can damage roofing and guttering and can carry diseases like Chiamdiosis and Psittacoses, similar to pneumonia.

Balcony Netting for Bird Proofing
Birds like pigeons and seagulls are looking for sheltered spots high up to roost and nest, and balconies are almost custom-made for them. If you have an issue with pigeons on your balcony or other birds, the only realistically effective way is to net the balcony off with bird netting. We can carry out balcony netting in Cambridge and the surrounding area, and indeed offer pigeon netting for balconies across most of England. If the pigeons are nesting, we have the appropriate licences in place.
A 7×7 strand steel shaping wire is used right around the perimeter of the balcony to hold the netting in place and this needs to fixed with appropriate fixings on all open sides. Barrel strainers are used to keep the wires and netting taught long term with the netting itself attached segment by segment using SR8 grade hog ring staples. Standard netting for balconies is black pigeon netting. Although it does obstruct the view out a bit, once installed the 50mm mesh size means that it’s more aesthetically pleasing than you might imagine. Translucent and stone coloured netting options are also available although they do cost more, and zips can be installed to allow access through if needed. We can also clean-down any build-up of fouling and treat with biocide to deal with the pathogens and bird mites present while carrying out the netting work. Cost will be governed mainly by dimensions and what we are fitting into. Ideally, if you could enquire by email including a picture or two and dimensions of height, width and depth of the balcony and what floor you are on that will move things forward quickly. However if you prefer to call first that’s fine too. We cover most of England for balcony netting for pigeons and other birds and if the pigeons are nesting, we have the appropriate licences in place.
