Bird Proofing

As Scotland’s leading bird control specialist you can rest assured you’ll never get in a flap over bird problems. We continue to work for leading Scottish brands such as Babcock, Scottish Water & Scottish Power.

Gull netting job (Small)Nuisance birds such as pigeons, gulls, corvids (part of the crow family) and starlings, when left unchecked will continue to create mess and damage requiring expensive cleaning and maintenance over & over again. While bird species and habits vary, so does the right proofing solution. A variety of systems are readily available and each one has its own particular advantages and disadvantages for any given site &/or situation.

All of our bird proofing solutions are species-specific as we understand exactly how the birds will react to the installation we provide. Birds will use different areas buildings for different purposes – resting, roosting and nesting.

Our team of bird control experts will provide you with a free survey to measure bird pressure throughout your site and provide you with sound advice and professional recommendations tailored to your particular business and environment.

Types of ‘Bird Pressure’

  • Light pressure – easy to bird proof and will allow the use of almost any system.
  • Medium pressure – potential problems mean that some bird proofing products will be ineffective so we use our expert knowledge to select and install the ideal bird proofing system.
  • Heavy pressure – in less capable hands, there’s a high likelihood of failure unless the correct bird proofing system is properly installed.

Bird Spike

Bird perching deterrent spikes are a simple, maintenance-free method of obstructing birds from perching or nesting on exposed features such as shop signs, drainpipes, guttering and ledges.

Bird spike on school (Small)

These spikes are fabricated from stainless steel do not hurt the birds, they are very flexible, withstand UV light and can be installed almost anywhere with a highly effective adhesive avoiding the need to penetrate the building shell, furnishings or fittings.

An important note is that despite their flexibility and effectiveness wherever pigeons attempt to perch, bird point is less successful in very sheltered places. Pigeons have even been known to build nests on top of the spikes if it means they get to stay in their preferred nesting area. Don’t worry though; we’ll tell you what’s suitable and guarantee our recommendations so the birds don’t come back.

Gull deterrent spikes are a heavier duty version of the pigeon spikes and have a slightly longer spike, preventing them from landing on the leading edges of buildings, exposed features such as lamp-posts, drainpipes and guttering.

The Bird point system is available with plastic or stainless steel prongs from 304 grade to 316 grade stainless.

Environmental Clean Ups

It’s a well known fact that droppings from pigeons, gulls and sparrows can cause permanent damage to the structure of your building or equipment if it is not dealt with correctly. Many areas such as roofs, balconies, machinery, ventilation systems, and lofts provide birds with sheltered spots which they often choose for roosting and nesting. The birds then leave their bodily waste in the building or area they’ve chosen to nest in.

Bird poo is very acidic, this can lead to corrosion of the surfaces it is deposited on. We find the worst effected areas to be tar-based roofing materials, and paint finishes.

Ventilation & ducting systems are also frequently damaged by bird droppings as the ducts can become clogged which often results in very expensive repairs.

Bird droppings can also introduce parasites, fleas and ticks into the environment around their nesting areas. This combined with the unpleasant odours that droppings from birds create presents a real risk to human health.

The odour from bird poo and it’s contaminants can quickly be spread around the building through the ventilation system and inhaling the bacteria and funguses in bird faeces can compromise your immune system causing diseases, including: Cryptococcsis, Histoplasmosis and Psittacosis.

The safe removal of bird waste is not only vital to improve the aesthetic appearance of the building or surface it is present on, it also ensures human health issues are eliminated and the life of the surface is prolonged.

Scottish Pest Control Services Specialist Hygiene’s technicians are fully trained in the removal, cleaning and sanitisation of areas that have been affected by bird droppings and ensure the procedure is performed in an efficient and safe manner.
