The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 protects all wild birds, their nests and eggs. However, specific exemptions permit certain species to be controlled by particular methods for specific reasons.
Birds can be pests. They carry disease, eat food intended for human consumption, cause noise pollution with their calls and can create a very real hazard by the accumulation of their droppings.
The need for control of certain species of birds can be seen right across the domestic, industrial and agricultural sphere. This requirement has been recognised by government and we are dedicated to the fight against pest bird species.
A flock (whether large or small) using your building to roost, perch or nest will attract other birds to use it on a regular basis.
Two birds today could mean twenty birds tomorrow. Pigeon faeces are very acidic and will corrode the fabric of your building including UPVC, brickwork, guttering and metal, leading to costly repairs and increased maintenance. All bird faeces are wet and, when they fall directly to the pavement outside your building's entrance, could lead to a member of the public slipping and being seriously hurt. Unfortunately in today's legal climate an accident could prove very costly to your business.
Lastly and most importantly, it has been proved that faeces contain a number of very harmful pathogens that can be transmitted to man. Breathing in the ‘dust' caused by accumulated bird faeces is one of the direct routes to many chronic respiratory diseases. People who suffer from asthma and allergies can suffer especially. In addition, feathers and nesting materials contain numerous insect pests, such as flies, fleas, beetles and mites.
Control of birds through population reduction techniques is generally both less desirable and less effective than removing their food sources or blocking off sites where they perch or roost. The latter technique, known as proofing, is now used extensively with blunt spikes, sprung wires and nets installed in buildings to keep birds off without harming them.
