Birds like pigeons and gulls are increasingly causing issues by damaging buildings, stairways, and paths with fouling and pecking. Their acidic guano can harm buildings, leading to costly repairs and extensive cleaning expenses 

These birds are often carriers of parasites that can spread from their nests and harm humans. 
 
High populations of pest birds nesting and roosting on your property can make buildings look unsightly. Seagulls, for instance, create disturbing noises and may become aggressive when protecting their young, posing a threat to passers-by. 
In addition to property damage, pest birds also pose health risks by transmitting diseases like salmonellosis and ornithosis, endangering human safety. 
To address the challenges posed by pest birds such as pigeons and gulls, it is essential to implement effective and humane bird control measures. One approach is to install physical deterrents like bird gel, spikes, netting, or wire systems to prevent birds from roosting and nesting on buildings. These solutions are non-harmful to birds but effectively discourage them from settling in unwanted areas. 
By taking a proactive approach to bird control and employing a combination of strategies, it is possible to mitigate the damage and health risks associated with pest birds while promoting a safer and more pleasant environment for both humans and wildlife.

Pigeons 

Pigeons, can harbour various diseases like Ornithosis, Listeria, and E. coli, which can be transmitted to humans through both their droppings and the birds themselves. When pigeon droppings dry, they can disperse into the air in fine particles, potentially causing respiratory issues like psittacosis. 
 
Pigeon guano possesses acidity that can corrode or erode metals, stonework, and brickwork. The nesting materials used by pigeons may obstruct chimneys, flues, and guttering, leading to concerns related to carbon monoxide and structural damage as overflowing water results from clogged gutters. 
 
The unsightly appearance and unpleasant odour of buildings covered in pigeon guano can tarnish a business's reputation. 
 
By utilising our expertise in working at heights, we can effectively implement a range of pigeon proofing materials such as optical gels, spikes, wires, and netting. These solutions are specifically designed to deter unwanted bird species from accessing your buildings and structures, safeguarding your premises and products from potential damage or disturbances caused by troublesome birds. 

Gulls 

There are six common species of gull found in the UK. These are the Greater Black-Backed, the Lesser Black-Backed, the Herring Gull, the Black-Headed Gull, Common Gull and the Inland Gull. 
 
Gulls are typically large birds with white or light grey plumage, dark tipped wings, yellow beaks and webbed feet. 
 
Gulls may carry a wide number of diseases, such as salmonella and tuberculosis, which are potentially fatal to humans. 
 
There are lots of ways we can stop gulls from nesting on your property. Proofing measures such as netting, sprung and parallel wires or bird spikes. 
 
Gulls can be huge, so the equipment involved in keeping them out of somewhere has to be very heavy duty. 
 
One effective method to deter gulls from nesting on your property is by utilising a combination of proofing measures. Netting, sprung and parallel wires, and bird spikes are commonly used to prevent gulls from settling in. These methods work by making the area less appealing for gulls to nest, encouraging them to seek alternative locations for their habitats. By employing a variety of deterrents, you can create a hostile environment for gulls and protect your property from their nesting activities.
