Did you know...

Pigeons mate for life and can breed up to 8 times a year bringing two young in to the world each time.

When a squab is born it can double its birth weight in 1 day, but it takes 3 days before the heart starts beating and 4 days for the eyes to open.

Bird Netting

Bird netting is a practical and efficient bird deterrent solution that uses a physical barrier of netting material. The netting prevents birds from accessing certain areas, for example, rooftops, or structures. It creates a protective barrier that blocks birds from entering or nesting in the area. Bird netting is a humane and environmentally friendly approach that allows for the exclusion of birds without causing them harm. Bird netting is a versatile and widely used method to safeguard properties from bird-related damage.

Bird Spikes

Bird spikes are a popular bird deterrent method that involves strategically installing specially designed spikes on surfaces where birds tend to perch, nest or roost. The pointed spikes (usually made from stainless steel or plastic) make it difficult for birds to land and discourage them from settling on ledges, rooftops, or other areas where they can cause damage or create a nuisance. The spikes create a physical barrier that prevents them from perching or nesting.

Bird Wire Solutions

Bird wire solutions are effective bird deterrent systems designed to prevent birds from landing or perching on specific surfaces. Bird wire systems typically consist of thin stainless-steel wires that are tensioned between posts or brackets. The wires are strategically placed to create an unstable landing surface for birds, discouraging them from roosting or nesting. Bird wire solutions are commonly installed on ledges and rooftops, and other areas where birds may roost. This method disrupts the birds’ balance and makes it uncomfortable for them to land. Bird wire solutions are highly versatile, customisable and provide long-lasting protection against avian intrusions without causing harm to the birds themselves.

Bird Free Gel

An innovative approach that uses a special compound to reflect ultraviolet light. It gives a visual appearance to birds of looking like flames and will keep pest birds off structures without harming them. Rather than acting as a barrier like netting or spikes, the gel alters birds’ behaviour. Birds will completely desert a habitat, even ones they have been using for years, after Bird Free has been applied.

The product is applied in 8mm high dishes which are placed on the landing or roosting area. This makes the dishes invisible from ground level making them ideal for use on listed buildings.
