How to control birds on your property

Getting rid of pest birds can be a real problem for any business. Not only do they cause a mess, but they can also be a health hazard – and a little frightening.

Pigeons and seagulls are normally the worst culprits, especially in towns and cities. Bird removal in these cases is made more difficult by a number of factors:

  1. Pigeons' natural food is grain and seeds but they adapt to urban areas by scavenging processed food, such as discarded takeaways and food waste from trash bins.
  2. If they can find enough food, pigeons breed the whole year round, with a peak between March and July.
  3. Seagulls will return year after year to the same nesting site, so once they’re established they’re hard to get rid of.
  4. Seagulls can live a long time - up to 40 years - during which time they can keep breeding.

Look for common signs of an infestation if you are noticing more and more bird nests around your property.

How to keep birds away

The best way to keep birds away for good is to remove their food sources. However, in busy urban areas this is not always a practical solution.

If birds are causing a nuisance at your business premises there are a number of tactics that you can try:

  • Remove access to nesting sites (ex. put barriers over window ledges).
  • Keep any possible food sources well-hidden.
  • Make sure bin lids are secure and trash bags are not left in the open.
