At Hull Tigers Football Stadium, a very high number of pigeons had started settling inside the actual stadium. Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, the stadium has become a quiet place with no staff or visitors but became the perfect roosting ground for pigeons!
NBC had already worked with the stadium a number of years ago to reduce the pigeon problem. This was down to a bird of prey being flown to act as a deterrent to the pigeons and the problem was solved for a few years. However, as a result of greatly reduced activity within the stadium as a result of the pandemic, pigeons began roosting and flying inside the stadium once again. There started to become a problem with excessive bird fouling.
In order to bring the problem under control once again, the same measures were deployed as that several years ago, to fly a bird of prey on a 10 day intensive presence to clear the infestation and then continue with weekly visits to keep them at bay. Once the pigeons reduce in their numbers and move away from the site again, a guano clean of the stadium will commence.
“During the pandemic and with no one being in our stadium the pigeons have returned and we were experiencing not only high numbers flying around but also a lot of pigeon fouling inside our stadium. We knew the H&S risks surrounding this and called in the professionals again to assist. NBC attended site the next day and advised the best way to tackle the infestation and also the safe removal of the pigeon fouling. NBC were very professional and we are very happy with the results so far. Would highly recommend.”
“The UEA campus was designed so that virtually no part of campus is more than a few minutes walk from anywhere else. As good as this is for students travelling between classes, it means many features of our distinctive University, such as the elevated walkways and concrete overhangs, are an attractive place for pigeons.
As we endeavour to make our campus accessible to all, it became clear that in a number of key areas the pigeon guano was a serious issue for our students and staff, particularly wheelchair users, and with the listed buildings on site we were restricted in what preventative measures we could take.
Luckily for us, NBC were able to deliver a humane solution which fit the needs of our site. With their consultants they were able to address the problems we faced and sensitivities from students and staff. As a result we have seen a significant reduction in the potential risks posed to our staff, students and visitors.”
“I would just like to thank you and your team on the professional manner that the site operation of cleaning the pigeon guano from the scaffold on the Brighton 3TS project. From the first site visit from yourself to the operation taking place it was done to the highest standards. Your men finished the works 1 day early which took strain off the NHS trust as we were working in live traffic. Much appreciated by all.”
“NBC completed the work safely and to a high standard, they listened to specific requirements and delivered a high quality job. We’re very pleased with the area and the result.”
“NBC have been extremely helpful – the falconry and pest services they provide is first class. I would highly recommend them to any business.”
“We awarded the works to NBC based on price and quality of their quote, NBC made the effort to survey the site before pricing, this allowed them to put forward a proposal that gave us confidence in their quote. The quality of their works is good and they have worked weekends to ensure that the works were completed as promptly as possible.
NBC mobilised quickly and have been easy to work with, I would use them again for projects in future.”
