Bird Deterrents and Solutions
There is no single way of getting rid of birds and it will often take a combination of methods to get the desired results.
DIY bird control is not recommended due to the diseases associated with certain species.
The best option is to call bird and pest control professionals to review your requirements and advise on the best form of removal and deterrent.
- Spiking – Steel spikes affixed to a plastic base prevents birds from landing.
- Netting – Nylon netting used to exclude birds from certain areas. We have various options, providing a solution for all situations
- Solar Panel Mesh – Galvanised mesh affixed to the perimeter of your solar panels, using drill-free clips
- Nest Deterrents – Clear acrylic nest deterrents prevent birds from nesting under the eaves of your property. Ideal solution for discretion
The best way to discourage birds for good is to remove their food sources, however in busy urban areas this is not always a practical solution. If birds are causing a nuisance at your premises there are a number of solutions that Acorn can offer.
Birds can become particularly troublesome in the colder months, when they look for shelter out of the elements. Ensure that your roof is in good order to help deny access.
Removing bird nests and guano cleaning
Laws and regulations restrict the times of the year when bird nests may be removed. It is illegal to remove gulls’ nests once we are in gull nesting season, for example.
If you’re unsure about whether a nest can be removed, contact The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). Specialist licensing is required to remove a nest so call Acorn Environment to find out more about your options.
Bird guano (or droppings) can contain diseases and other pests, such as mites, so it is strongly advised against cleaning bird infested areas yourself.
A professional bird control team is certified and equipped to do the work quickly, effectively and safely.
