Issues Associated with Birds

  • Birds tend to roost and nest in all types of buildings, whatever the design. This is usually a seasonal occurrence when the breeding cycle commences.
  • Bird droppings can deface buildings, walkways, air conditioning units, hand railings and other highly visible areas. This not only looks unattractive but also can contribute to health problems.
  • Bird droppings harbour diseases such as Histoplasmosis, Cryptococcosis and Aspergillosis fungus. When the spores become airborne, they can be inhaled causing serious illness. Pigeons are the main offenders because of their roosting.
  • Birds are hosts for bird lice and bird mites, and which can become a nuisance

 

Types of Problem Birds

 Bird Control & Removal Techniques
  • Bird Baiting - This requires the pre feeding of birds for up to 14 consecutive days then on the final day an immobilizing agent is used to pacify the birds where they can be readily removed from the site.

  • Trapping - This method must be carried out in a controlled environment where the birds cannot be disrupted by daily activities. Suitable feed is placed at the target area and gradually different cage components are introduced until the birds are comfortable with the cage. Once the birds have entered the cage, they will not be able to escape. The cage and birds are then removed.

  • Shooting - Due to some bird species being classified as pests or vermin, it is legal to set up a culling program to alleviate an infestation. This procedure is considered as a final action when other options cannot be implemented.

 

Bird Prevention Methods

  • Bird Spikes - These are installed along framework, walls, pipes and other items to prevent birds from roosting.

  • Bird Wire and Coils - Similar to bird spikes preventing birds from roosting on wider ledges. This system can also be electrified to induce a shock.

  • Bird Netting - Bird-proof netting is used to prevent birds from coming into unwanted areas.

  • Daddi Long Legs - These are long, thick, wavy, stainless steel rods used in situations such as lights, air conditioning units and other flat surfaces
