BIRDS

 About Feral Birds:

Feral birds nest and roost in buildings and their droppings accumulate in the surrounding areas. These droppings, when dry, harbour over 40 known diseases including Salmonellosis, Cryptococcosis, Histoplasmosis and Ornithosis, the latter two causing blindness and even death. 

Accumulating and decaying bird droppings create offensive odours and will attract flies and other disease-carrying insects, especially during summer. Droppings are also highly corrosive, not only to metal, but to concrete as well. 

 

Bird Proofing:

Putting physical barriers in place is the most effective method of preventing birds from entering and roosting or nesting in buildings.

We use a wide range of products from bird net and bird mesh to bird spikes depending on your unique situation.

 

Bird Nest Removal:

Cleaning and disinfecting is a critical part of the bird control solution. Removal of the nests prevents lice and a number of diseases. Droppings are also acidic, unsightly and carry a number of airborne diseases.  It is crucial that they are removed by our qualified personnel with the correct safety equipment and disposed of correctly.

This service includes treatment against bird lice using a residual insecticidal spray as well as an anti-microbial treatment.


Bird Culling:

Culling of feral birds is allowed where it becomes a pest. We use a skilled marksman with years of experience in culling pest birds. A high velocity airgun and heavy, soft pellets guarantee very good results

One culling service consists of three after hour visits. Culling starts approximately one hour before sunset until approximately one hour after sunset. We remove the carcasses off site and dispose of it in a safe, environmentally friendly way.

This method of bird control reduces their numbers, disturbs the family order of the birds and
makes the survivors feel threatened in the area.
