    When it comes to dealing with birds, they have to be treated in a different way to other sorts of pests such as rats or mice.  While an infestation of rats will be eliminated through poisoning or trapping, killing birds is more problematic for practical (and for some people, ethical) reasons.

    Bird proofing can be particularly difficult when the problem affects surfaces like the face of buildings, statues, monuments and signage. Bird proofing on historic and listed buildings requires sensitive work so as not to affect the building structure long term and to limit any change to the aesthetics of the property.

    Our bird proofing treatments follow a 3-step programme

    1. Carry out a professional survey to work out the level and methods of proofing required.
    2. Use the appropriate proofing products to effective set up bird deterrents.
    3. Advise you on ways of maintaining proofing measures to prevent future problems.

    Bird Deterrents

    The pest control techniques used to keep birds at bay include:

    • Bird Netting – These are the nets you will often see on the roofs of buildings, preventing birds from nesting there.
    • Bird Mesh – This galvanised or stainless steel mesh comes in a variety of sizes and blends well with any environment.
    • Optical Bird Gel – Creates an illusion of fire to scare birds away from the property.
    • Bird Wire – If you are concerned that bird netting will ruin the aesthetics of your property then bird wire is an alternative solution, being much less visible but doing the same job.
    • Bird Spikes – For areas of heavy infestation bird spikes prevent perching on just about any surface.  Please note, although they look dangerous they do not hurt the birds because they will simply refuse to land there.
    • Falconry – Suitable for use in large open spaces either indoor or out.
    • Bird Scarers –  Emitting bird distress or predator calls, these are particularly effective at keeping birds out of a large area such as a car park or airport.
    • Pigeon Deterrents – Every situation is different, Eraserpest will recommend the best combination of pigeon netting, pigeon spikes and bird scarers for your circumstances.
    • Seagull Deterrents – In many ways seagulls are even worse than pigeons because they can become aggressive as well.  There are many ways to solve the pest control problem of seagulls however, from spikes to gull wire.
    • Electric Bird Deterrents – The Avishock electric strips are barely noticeble once installed and work by administering a harmless electric pulse to scare birds away.
