Across the city, from the beautiful and elegant centre with its old, historic buildings to the more industrial parts on the outskirts, there is a constant need for effective Exeter bird control. Unfortunately, nuisance birds including pigeons and seagulls, don’t just go away. Instead they make themselves at home on roof tops and other hard to reach places. So, what can you do and why should you exercise good bird control measures for your property?
Nuisance birds, you may think, are someone else’s problem. You might spot seagulls and pigeons on neighbouring buildings but it won’t be long before they find their way to your building. If they are already using your property as their home, these are the issues you need to consider:
If you own a business and have visitors to your building, including staff, you need to think about protecting them as well as your property. Luckily there are several effective preventative and removal methods that will protect your property from these pests.
As Exeter bird control specialists, one of the most popular and effective services that we offer is bird netting. We usually provide bird netting to roofs and chimneys and other areas where these nuisance birds may have taken up home. Even if they haven’t made your roof their home yet, it is still an inviting territory for the future. Bird proofing now will save you a lot of time and money in the future.
Spiking is another effective method of bird control and works where netting perhaps won’t. The areas that Exeter bird spiking is most effective is in those hard to reach areas – ledges, beams, the rafters of roofs and around chimneys for example. By installing bird spiking you will deter birds from perching and make it inaccessible.
If it’s too late for preventative techniques such as netting and spiking, then you need to look at Exeter bird control methods. Another effective deterrent used by the Falcon team is bird hawking. Our hawks are flown around an area that is home to nuisance birds to encourage them to move on. The message that this sends out is that the area is home to birds of prey and a potential predatory threat to the young.
We also use BirdAlert®, a highly effective method of scaring birds using tried and tested techniques. Audible bird noises are played out through speakers to emulate the threat of a predator. This alerts the birds to the threat and scares them away. Unlike some bird scaring tools, it is cleverly programmed to avoid habituation using various techniques and sounds. This innovative bird scaring and detection service is specifically designed to recognise specific birds, detecting and reacting to them, encouraging them to find somewhere else to live. What’s more it can be programmed from an app on your phone. You can read more about our BirdAlert system here.
Solar panels are now a popular addition to many rooftops and while they are an excellent eco-friendly choice, unfortunately they are also very bird friendly. There are several problems with this. In addition to the mess they make, the droppings can also fall between the gaps and into the roof space. Our solar panel bird proofing solution will ensure that these gaps are protected from nesting birds.
