Bird Control, Bird Proofing and Bird Pest Control

Although many species of bird can be lovely to watch, and many can even be beneficial as they eat other pests and pollinate plants, certain species can also cause damage and spread disease if the population gets out of control - so it's essential to put effective bird control into place.

Here at Pest Control Direct, we offer a wide range of bird control products, making it easy for you to find an affordable and effective solution to your bird control problem. Depending on the species of bird in question, the animals can create a variety of difficulties. Some of the winged animals may eat the crops in your vegetable garden, while the roosting habits of others could cause damage to buildings - in all such situations, a quick response with the right bird control product is a must. For example, many birds - particularly pigeons - have very acidic urine, meaning their droppings can cause corrosion, while debris from the creatures - like moulted feathers or nesting materials can lead to blockages in guttering or ventilation shafts. Some types of birds can infiltrate the walls of your home, living inside cavity walls or in the roof space, making terrible messes and causing damage. In addition, if a bird dies in a difficult-to-access space, it could result in unpleasant smells. In addition, many birds carry bacteria and or parasites that can cause people to contract diseases like encephalitis, salmonella, meningitis and toxoplasmosis.

DIY bird control solutions

The right bird control solution will depend on the type of birds that you are dealing with, as well as the type of problem they are causing. Various bird deterrents are available, with bird dispersal systems and bird scarers popular options for dealing with the pests. These often emit noises that scare away the birds - a popular choice for airports - while statues of owls have been known to frighten the birds away. If you're looking for bird proofing solutions to keep the avian pests out of specific areas, netting is an effective choice that will stop the birds from roosting under ledges and other locations. The nets are provided in different sizes for dealing with different problem species - like pigeons, sparrows or starlings - and all the necessary fittings and fixings can be supplied.

Meanwhile, chimney protection products will stop the birds from roosting on top of your chimney or flying inside the flue. In addition, there are a number of products specifically designed for pigeon control. These include polycarbonate or stainless steel bird spikes that prevent the birds from perching on surfaces like roofs, gutters or fences. Catch-and-release bird control traps are also available, while bird-proofing fire gel is a non-toxic option that repels the feathered creatures.
