They treat for bird lice. Then have the building repaired or put use another bird proofing method to stop the birds accessing their nesting area
Post and wire
Post and Wire deterrent is when the wire deters birds from landing. It is the original bird proofing system that can be considered for buildings with low pressure pigeon or gull problems. It is unobtrusive when installed correctly and is favoured by many architects on specifications. Posts can be drilled into the substrate or stick-on bases can be considered, particularly on lead or zinc cladding.
The Netting is used to cover harbourage areas to prevent nesting and perching on sheltered ledges or other surfaces. Netting is the most effective proofing measure, as it can generally work for all species at all pressures. Some nets are no flames nets and have been fire tested and certificated to not propagate a flame and are perfect for fire escapes, light-wells and areas that people may walk near.
Spikes are a series of plastic or metal pins usually with a polycarbonate base stuck to ledges to prevent birds from landing on low to medium pressure situations. Spikes are durable, easy to install and cost effective and can be discrete if installed correctly. Spikes can be installed on all types of buildings, surfaces and gutters. In heavy pressure situations other control measures may have to be considered in tandem to maintain effectiveness.
Scaring devices are very effective in stopping birds coming into a particular area. There are a few different types available:-
Light reflecting device are used to stop the birds flying in the area. They reduce pest bird numbers on commercial and industrial buildings, airstrips and agricultural situation.
Sound devices are effective for birds that are roosting overnight. they let out non repetitive ultrasonic sound waves to discourage the birds from the area. However, this device needs to be used in conjunction with other systems.
Moving device like one with long legs that come out and wave around in the are suitable for flat roof building.
Repellent System is a clever unobtrusive design that provides electrical currents to stop birds landing. It can even be used on sculptures and water features.It is water and moisture proof and does not cause corrosion. No drilling required as secured with natural silicone.
Electric Track System
The Electric Track Systems are discrete electrified tracks that can be used on regular and irregular shaped surfaces. They provide total exclusion to all bird species, even in high pressure roosting situations. The track is 6 mm high and is hard to see close up once installed. It is a humane system and does not harm or injure birds. it is made out of long lasting materials.
Trapping birds in cages, this is a slower process but can be effective in eradicating the problem pest bird. The cages need to be attended to daily to replace food and wate. Release of non pest birds.
Shooting is not commonly used by Surekill Technicians. It is an option in extreme case
