Commercial bird control

Rentokil utilises a wide array of specialist bird management solutions including netting, spikes, wire systems, repellents and scaring technologies

Rentokil works with architects, surveyors, landlords, facilities managers and business owners in all industries to incorporate bird control measures to prevent bird infestations and tackle nuisance birds. Our qualified avian specialists provide effective, humane, discreet and targeted bird control solutions to protect your business and reputation.

Types of bird control treatments

The best way to protect your property is to be proactive in preventing birds from becoming established on your premises. Our local and experienced bird specialists offer discreet, effective treatments that provide comprehensive bird deterrent solutions, including:

Bird control netting

Bird deterrent netting places a physical barrier between the bird pest and its intended destination - preventing pest birds from landing and nesting on and around your property

Bird scarer (bioacoustics)

An electronic, digitised recording of a distressed pest bird replays at random intervals to create a perceived threat - encouraging pest birds to flee the immediate vicinity

Anti-perch solutions

Bird spikes, spring wires and Daddi Long Legs offer a range of innovative bird deterrent solutions for protecting ledges, sills and areas where traditional bird proofing techniques are not feasible

Bird hawking

Utilising specifically-trained birds of prey such as hawks, eagles and falcons as an entirely natural solution to deter pest birds such as pigeons and gulls without harm

Solar panel bird proofing

Installing a barrier around the perimeter of your solar panels to prevent pest birds from gaining access underneath, or causing damage to its components

Rentokil’s individual approach and tailored programme really impressed us, and the hawks have been incredibly effective.

The risk of pest birds to businesses

Adopting expert bird control measures sooner rather than later will ensure your business is protected against the risks associated with pest birds and reduce overall costs of damage.


Risk to customers’ and employees’ health

  • Being aggressive by attacking customers and employees, especially during the breeding season when they have eggs and young to protect
  • Health issues caused by pathogens in bird droppings, including Salmonella and fungal infections, and airborne particles from dried droppings, nesting material and bird feathers 
  • Carrying ectoparasites, including fleas, mites, ticks, lice and other biting insects that can spread diseases and pose a serious health risk
  • Safety issues caused by droppings, including slips and falls and fire hazards caused by nesting materials

Risk to product and brand

  • Damaging product packaging while trying to access food, bird droppings or feathers may contaminate open product
  • Noise can be a problem for hospitality, healthcare and residential properties and for neighbouring properties when there are large flocks

Risk to building integrity

  • Roosting on buildings, leaving large amounts of droppings that corrode building material
  • Damaging property by dislodging roof tiles and other materials; damaging HVAC equipment
  • Building nests and blocking gutters, causing flooding that creates insect breeding sites and water damage inside buildings

Risk to your business’ bottom line

Many bird infestations lead to costly repairs or lost revenue as a result of impact to operations or damage to goods
