As the UK’s leading bird control specialist, NBC Environment has a proven track record in providing a wide range of effective bird control services for all types of bird problems.
We have over 23 years’ experience at the forefront of bird control working at a wide variety of sites including industrial sites, heritage sites, construction sites, office blocks, shopping centres, airports, farms, fisheries and ports.
In order to ensure you have the most effective bird control solutions we recommend our team first surveys your site to fully understand the bird control problem. Typical bird control and bird deterrent measures we may recommend include:
- Bird control using traditional proofing techniques such as netting, bird wire and bird spiking
- Bird control using innovative proofing techniques – electric or gel deterrents (ideal for listed buildings and retail applications)
- Bird scaring using falconry response – we have the UK’s most experienced falconry response teams
- Egg & nest removal – A humane way to prevent bird populations increasing
Typical bird problems we encounter:
The most common bird species that create bird control problems in the UK are gulls and pigeons. Frequent bird problems we deal with include:
- Bird fouling – deposits on buildings, solar paneling cars, stock, rooftop plant machinery or walkways can be a significant hazard and health and safety risk
- Aggressive behaviour – very common during the nesting season (March – September)
- Nesting in or on buildings – clogging drains, flues encouraging insect infestation
- Noise – Some bird species are very loud, for example the gull calls can be disruptive to business or residential areas
- Ground nesting – ground nesting bird species can cause significant development delays and costs if not managed correctly or legally
Other problem bird species that come into conflict with businesses and organisations are canada geese, starlings and corvids (crows, rooks, ravens, jackdaws) which create health and safety issues, depositing bird mess and creating destruction wherever they go.
