Bird Control

Whilst most Australian birds are considered harmless creatures and mere joys of nature. There are some pest species such as the Feral Pigeon, Sparrow, Myna Bird and Starling that are considered as pests. The main reason these birds are considered as pests is because they are carriers of fleas, mites, ticks and lice. They love to nest inside the roofs of homes and buildings and their unpleasant droppings are more hazardous than they look.

These birds along with their droppings contain more than 60 pathogens and diseases such as E.Coli and Salmonella all of which pose serious health risks to us humans. Once their droppings become dry they become dust like and airborne meaning we as humans are breathing these pathogens into our airways which can make us dangerously sick.

These birds can cause thousands of dollar’s worth of damage to buildings and homes. They also cause blocked gutters with their nesting materials and droppings. Did you know their droppings also stain and even corrode building surfaces.

Birds are also known to become very territorial believing your home or workplace is theirs. Often becoming aggressive trying to swoop and attack you when protecting their partners, nests or when they have their babies.

Bird Control Solutions (Bird Proofing, Bird Deterrents & Pest Bird Removal Services)

Depending on the type of pest bird/s you are dealing with we use a variety of different deterrents and methods of eradication to effectively remove or deter pest birds from your premises. Among these methods are Stainless Steel Bird Spikes, Bird Netting, AVI Strand Bird Wire, Perimeter Roof / Gutter Proofing, Electric Bird Shock Track Systems, Solar Panel Bird Proofing, Baiting Programs, Trapping Programs and Bird Shooting Services.

STAINLESS STEEL SPIKES

Stainless steel spikes prevent birds from being able to comfortably sit or roost on the surface these spikes are installed to. We use a special adhesive specifically designed for these bird spikes to install them to almost any surface such as business signage, beams, lights, pipes, ledges, security cameras, window sills and any other places that the birds may try to find a foothold.

The spikes are made from a high grade stainless steel so they can withstand even the worst weather conditions. They come in different sizes and can be curved or cut to suit the architectural design of any building.

BIRD NETTING

This bird netting is available in various sizes and is made of very thin, strong strands of polyethylene twine, making it very strong and highly resistant to ultraviolet rays. Bird netting once installed is effective for both small and large pest birds and can be installed to cover roof tops, car parks, garages, loading docks, awnings, pergolas etc to make it impossible for any pest bird to gain entry or roost on the ledges and frameworks that the netting is protecting. We can even install zippers in our netting so if access is required to lighting, fire sprinklers and other services they can all still be accessible without damaging the netting.

AVI STRAND BIRD WIRE

When you need to deter pest birds without affecting the aesthetics of the building, you need AVI Strand Bird Wire. It is virtually invisible from the ground so it will not spoil the look of the building. AVI Strand Bird Wire consists of stainless steel posts and stainless steel wire that can be used effectively to deter birds from being able to comfortably land or roost. It can be secured to most surfaces using UV stable post support bases or if needed, we also have our custom made edge saver stainless steel brackets available too.

PERIMETER ROOF PROOFING

By proofing the perimeter of the roof, pest birds and even rodents find it impossible to gain access to your building via the roof. This proofing is made from aluminium and has a powder coated finish which can be matched to suit the colour of your roof. It is very robust and will not warp or burn. This is the most compatible protection against pest birds for all roofing types. This proofing is not only good to deter birds it also helps keep your gutters clean and free from leaves and debris. When installed the mesh is attached to the edge of the gutter and across the first tile and under the second tile. We attach the mesh to the gutter of a tiled roof using a color-coded aluminium trim and for a metal roof we fasten the mesh down to the roof by using color-coded saddle clips.

ELECTRIC BIRD SHOCK TRACK SYSTEM

One of the most effective deterrents against all bird species is the Electric Shock Bird Track System. This system is made from PVC and stainless steel and is very flexible to ensure it can be adapted to the design of any building. It is only ¼ inch high and cannot be seen from the ground looking up. Based on the principal of ‘fright and flight’ it conditions the birds to start avoiding the area in which it was frightened by the electric shock. This track is suited to be installed to higher ledges and frameworks not accessible for humans to touch.

BIRD TRAPPING PROGRAM

Where there is a large population of pest bird’s onsite we highly recommend reducing the flock by installing bird traps onsite. These traps are available in different sizes to make provision for different sized birds such as the Feral Pigeon or Myna Bird. The traps are set up where the birds are inhabiting and a program is implemented to ensure the birds are captured humanely. The cages are maintained with fresh water, seed and the trapped birds are then euthanised as per our governing regulations. This method of removal is ideal when there are non-target birds also around such as Native Birds which we don’t want to remove.

BIRD BAITING PROGRAM

A bird baiting program is ideal when other methods are not feasible or when we are culling in an enclosed environment such as a factory or warehouse where other non-target native birds are not inhabiting. Initially the birds are fed an untreated grain in a nominated area. Once their confidence is gained, they are fed a grain that has been treated with a narcotic substance. Once the bird has consumed the narcotic and has become pacified this enables the easy removal of the birds. The baiting method works very well where a specific pest bird is being targeted.

BIRD SHOOTING

Also classified as a legal method for culling pest birds, performing a Bird shoot is the quickest, cost effective and efficient way of getting rid of pest birds. Forensic Pest Management Services is accredited and licensed to use air rifles to remove pest birds in built-up areas like warehouses, factories, shopping centres and schools.
