BIRD CONTROL, BIRD PROOFING & GUANO CLEAN UP
PPCS Pest Control provide bird control services to safely remove problem birds from your property or ensure your premises have effective bird proofing systems in place to prevent unwanted issues as long as the target species are not currently protected. It should be noted that DEFRA change the bird control licences every year. You are also sometimes not allowed to remove the eggs or nest of certain species.
Bird control efforts begin with a comprehensive inspection, then based on the inspection findings, he or she will identify the species of bird(s) and choose the most effective exclusion methods.
Why Bird Control Is Important
Bird droppings and nesting material can lead to the spread of a number of diseases and the proliferation of ectoparasites like bed bugs, chicken mites, and yellow mealworms.
Ensuring the prevention of birds including pigeons can help to prevent infestations of parasites. Diseases include Listeria and E-coli and Ornithosis.
Bird dropping problems includes:
- Staining, corroding or otherwise damage building materials
- On pavements they can create a safety hazard
- Bird nests may create a fire hazard if located near lights or electrical equipment
- Birds that nest inside or around food production and warehouse facilities may contaminate equipment and products
Simple measures can minimise bird population
By removing food sources and nesting places, make sure refuse is disposed of correctly and tidily. Ask the neighbours not to leave out food for birds or other wildlife. Ensure block gaps in buildings which could be used as a perch or nest are not easily accessible.
Cover balcony openings with netting but ensure that other safety hazards have not been created. Make sure the netting does not allow children to climb the balcony more easily.
