Bird proofing your Plymouth school

At Falcon Environmental Services we get many calls about nuisance birds who have decided to make their homes in all sorts of inconvenient places. From under motorway bridges to train stations, town centres and coastal areas, it seems that these birds don’t discriminate and will look for anywhere warm, dry and safe to lay their eggs.  If you run a school or other educational establishment, bird proofing your Plymouth school against nuisance birds is paramount, especially when you have vulnerable young children to protect.

It is important to protect against the threat posed by gulls

Gulls can be dangerous to children

In addition to being a nuisance with their mess, and the damage that they can cause to properties, one of the biggest problems is the danger that they pose. Not only are seagulls, less intimidated than ever before about swooping down and stealing someone’s lunch, they can also carry some nasty diseases.

If your school, college or university has an outdoor eating facility, you want to ensure that its not covered in bird mess and that the children and young people are safe without threat of attack when enjoying their sandwiches. The types of diseases that they transmit via their faeces include Histoplasmosis which is a respiratory disease caused by fungus that grows in dried bird droppings and Salmonellosis.
