Why is bird control important?

 Lack of bird control can cause the following:

  • Bird droppings (guano) not only look unsightly but there is also a serious risk of pedestrians slipping.
  • Ammonia contained within the guano causes damage to the fabric of buildings.
  • Direct contact with Guano can result in diseases being contracted.
  • Birds spread disease such as ornithosis, cryptococcus neoformans, extrinisic allergic alveolitis, salmonella, escherichia coli and campylobacter.
  • Nest materials can and do block gutters and outlets on flat roofs, valley and box gutters on pitched roofs.

The Food Safety (General Food Hygiene) Regulations 1995 state:

“It is a violation to allow birds to infest a food premises”.

Whilst wild birds can be a nuisance for commercial businesses and the general public, they are protected under the wildlife and countryside Act 1981.

In order to comply with this Act we can recommend/install any of the following proactive control measures to mitigate the nuisance that these wild birds can cause:

    • Spring wires
    • Spikes
    • Exclusion netting
    • Chimney cowls

      Our company also offers a guano removal and cleaning service.

Our service includes advice on preventative/control measures on all of the above.
