Bird Control Milton Keynes

Birds are pleasant to watch and are in the main, great for the environment. However, when they invade your property and become a nuisance, there will be literally nothing to smile about. These beautiful creatures can be quite destructive to your home and business and might need to be deterred or relocated.

Concerned about how to get rid of pigeons nesting in your garden or premises? How about seagulls that will not stay away? Pigeons, seagulls, crows and starlings can present serious problems to your business and home. Pigeons and seagulls can pose a health risk, spreading diseases such as ornithosis, salmonella and E. Coli. Their droppings are acidic in nature and can damage the stonework to your premises and any corroding metals. Pigeon nests also attract other insects such as bird mites, fleas, ticks and lice. We have treated many instances where bird mites have made their way from nests under solar panels into restaurants, offices and homes.

Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels

Worried that pigeons may be nesting under your solar panels? You have every cause to be concerned. Solar panels can prove a wise investment, driving down your energy costs as long as they function effectively, usually for up to 30 or 40 years. During installation, a gap is typically left between the solar panels and roof to house the wiring. Unfortunately, expensive solar panels, air conditioning or heating units could attract and serve as the perfect home for birds sheltering from the elements and predators. Birds produce a lot of sticky excrement or guano which can build up quite quickly, causing stairs, pavements, fire escapes and walkways to become slippery and your guttering to back up as rain washes the poop away. Bird poop is highly corrosive and once on your panels, can cause major damage to them, rendering them ineffective and in need of repair. Birds can also damage the wiring to your panels. Worse yet, bird guano can host mites and other diseases such as salmonella and psittacosis, posing a serious health hazard to your family or employees. A pair of pigeons on average can have around 12 young squabs (i.e. baby pigeons) a year, so they are best dealt with swiftly before they cause an unsightly mess, too much damage and become a noise nuisance.

Like all other living creatures, pigeons as well as seagulls are also keen to get away from potential predators like owls. So erecting a fake plastic owl on your roof or balcony can be a very effective deterrent as pigeons struggle to tell the difference between a real and a fake one. There are also fake owls with heads that move with the movement of the wind, presenting an even more intimidating and effective decoy. 

Finally, nothing beats getting in an expert bird removal company to come in and help when the situation gets out of control. There are many ways in which 1st Call Pest Control can help with both humane and cost-effective solutions. Most commonly, we can install bird spikes to deter a variety of bird species including pigeons, sparrows, starlings and seagulls from perching and heavy duty bird netting to act as physical barriers to discourage nesting, particularly under solar panels. We also diligently and carefully deliver a nest removal service.

Our Bird Control & Prevention Solutions

We love birds and as such, we will employ safe and humane ways to get rid of them. There is a wide range of options that we will make use of and have various equipment fit for the task. Bird netting is one of the methods that we use and this will effectively protect your property for the birds. We will create decoys or barriers which the birds and other flying pests cannot go through. There are some bird deterrent and repellents that we can use. These are only meant to keep these creatures away and not cause any harm to them.

If you are looking for a temporary solution to keep the birds away, then you may want to consider the deterrents. There are anti-roosting spikes which we also use as a way of making your property less appealing to the pests. We will attach these spikes in the specific areas where the birds love to nest and as such, it will become impossible for them to perch. With this in place, the birds will find ways to stay off your property and you do not have to suffer any structural damage. Over and above, we are experts who use modern solutions, which are safe and effective in exterminating birds and keeping them away.
