Signs of a bird infestation

Your business premises could be the ideal habitat for pest birds. Pigeons have learned how to survive in most environments, scavenging our waste food and needing only the smallest amount of shelter to make their nests.

The longer birds are allowed to nest or roost in an unwanted area, the harder it will be to remove them. For example, pigeons are gregarious creatures living in flocks of anywhere between 50 and 500, so a small problem has the potential to turn into a large infestation.

Professional deterrent services can provide effective and discreet solutions to your bird problem, such as irritating bird sounds.

    • Bird nests - nesting materials strewn about your premises.
    • Damaged stock - from pecking and bird fouling.
    • Droppings - concentrated in areas where birds roost.

  • Where to look for bird problems -

    • Pigeons use areas of tall buildings and flat roofs to nest.
    • Balconies, ledges, chimney stacks, guttering and culverts are favorite areas for nesting.
    • Seagulls in particular like to flock together on flat roofs.
    • Any gap larger than 2.5cm that allows access to your building is a potential entry point for pigeons.
