Sometimes there’s nothing quite like waking up in the morning to birdsong or hearing the faint tweets on a hot summer’s day. Although many species of bird can be nice and relaxing to watch, and some can even be beneficial as they eat other pests that you may find in the garden and pollinate many plants, other species can also cause damage and spread disease if the population gets out of control – so it’s essential to put effective bird control into place.
There are a few different types of bird control and prevention you can look at on the market, these include:
- Bird Control Nettings and Fixings – Bird control nettings and net fixings for a professional looking job and ease of use to prevent birds perching on your property or business.
- Pigeon Pest Control, Spikes and Deterrents – Pigeon spikes, pigeon wires and other pigeon control products to be used for all your needs if you find yourself inundated with pigeons.
- Seagull Pest Control, Gull Spikes and Deterrents – Seagull control deterrents, gull spikes and other seagull focused products are great for any building places on or near the sea or a river estuary to keep away what has been shown to be quite a problematic bird.
Some types of birds can infiltrate the walls of your home, living inside cavity walls or in the roof space, making terrible messes and causing damage. In addition, if a bird dies in a difficult-to-access space, it could result in unpleasant smells.
The right bird control solution will depend on the type of birds that you are dealing with, as well as the type of problem they are causing. Various bird deterrents are available, with bird dispersal systems and bird scarers popular low-cost options for dealing with the birds in a residential area. These often emit noises that scare away the birds, while statues of owls have been known to frighten the birds away. If you’re looking for bird proofing solutions to keep the avian pests out of specific areas, netting is an effective choice that will stop the birds from roosting under ledges and other locations. The nets are provided in different sizes for dealing with different problem species – like pigeons, sparrows or starlings – and all the necessary fittings and fixings can be supplied from any reputable retailer of pest control products
Meanwhile, chimney protection products will stop the birds from roosting on top of your chimney or flying inside the flue. In addition, there are a number of products specifically designed for pigeon control. These include polycarbonate or stainless steel bird spikes that prevent the birds from perching on surfaces like roofs, gutters or fences. Catch-and-release bird control traps are also available, while bird-proofing fire gel is a non-toxic option that repels the feathered creatures.
