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 – while you may think they are someone else’s problem, if there are seagulls and pigeons on neighbouring buildings, it won’t be long before they find their way on 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 popular services that we recommend and provide is our bird netting service. As the name suggests, a netting system is constructed to act as a barrier to your roof or other areas where the birds have taken up home. Even if they haven’t made your roof their home yet, it is still an inviting territory for 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.
Another effective deterrent used by the Falcon team is bird hawking. Our team of hawking birds 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.
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.
