How does bird deterrent work?

Bird control services include a variety of bird deterrent techniques to solve pest bird problems without harming the birds in any way.

The aim of utilising bird deterrents is to move on nuisance birds to another area where they can live more harmoniously.

Natural bird deterrents

Birds of prey or falconry is a natural way to deter birds such as seagulls and pigeons, using specially trained hawks and falcons. In the wild, these falcons would be a natural predator and therefore pigeons and other birds will stay well away and find a new and safer home to inhabit.

In essence, falconry deters pest birds from a particular area through their learnt behaviours, leaving the site free from the nuisance of pest birds. The use of a bird of prey as a deterrent is also environmentally friendly - This method of bird deterrent is particularly useful for large buildings and industrial estates or wide-open areas, such as landfill sites, where bird proofing isn’t an option.

As the UK’s leading bird proofing experts, we have been installing bird spiking and bird wire deterrents since 1993. Both of these bird deterrent solutions can be used in conjunction if the situation merits their use.

Our qualified bird control teams and highly trained falconers can help deter pigeons and seagulls from returning to buildings and locations through effective use of seagull and pigeon deterrents. We only use humane and proven deterrent methods to scare pigeons and gulls away including laser bird deterrents, bird gel repellent and electric deterrents.
