Bird Proofing

Proofing the building is the first thing done by Technicians. They check if there are holes or access points into the building, roof, walls, subfloors where birds could be nesting. They remove the birds nests and treat for bird lice. Then have the either the building repaired or put use another bird proofing method to stop the birds accessing their nesting area.


Netting is used to cover harbourage areas to prevet 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 flame 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 underneath.

Scaring Devices

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 commerical 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 that 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 air. These are suitable for flat rooves, air conditioning units and boats. They are not noticable from a short distance. The rod legs rotate in the breeze and stop birds from landing.

Electric Track System

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 situatiions. 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.


Payment Options are cash, credit, eftpos or cheque.


Unless specific written arrangements has been provided then full contract price shall be due and payable and recoverable by the Surekill Technician on commencement of the intial treatment.

Post and wire

Post and Wire deterrent is when the wire deters birds from landing. It is the orginal bird proofing system taht 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.


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 effecive and can be discrete if installed correctly. Spikes can be installed on all types of buildings, surfaces and gutters. In heavy pressure situation other control measures may have to be considered in tandem to maintain effectiveness.

Repellent System

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. 


Trapping birds in cages, this is a slower process but can be effective in erradicating the problem pest bird. The cages need to be attended to daily to replace food and water. Release of non pest birds. Pest birds are destroyed humanely. Carbon dioxide is the most human way to dispose of pest birds. 


Shooting is not commonly used by Pest Technicians.  It is an option in extreme cases.
