Bird scaring is often required as part of a larger bird control programme. Often a site will need to be cleared of the pest birds in order for work to commence, gulls can be especially aggressive. All birds must be cleared from an area prior to any bird proofing installing and falconry response is an ideal bird scaring method to clear a site of nuisance birds.
Other methods of bird scaring can be installed – dog patrols, automatic audio deterrents, manual audio deterrents, electric deterrents and even bird of prey decoys and kites. Each bird deterrent method has its own place and advantages and disadvantages in a bird control programme so it's important to appoint a contractor with proven experience and qualified expertise.
Our bird control teams have worked with our customers nationwide since 1993 and are the most experienced and qualified in the UK today.
We always recommend a comprehensive site survey to understand the problem, identify the appropriate solutions and tailor it to your business and budget.
To talk to the most professional and knowledgeable bird control team in the UK call NBC Environment on 0333 567 2020.
We are always proud of our high standards and love our client feedback.
“NBC have come highly recommended and I have personally used Craig Bickerstaffe, the Contract Manager for my area on a previous job. He was very efficient and made it clear from the start exactly what needed doing, how long it will take and how much it would cost. I have another project that I now want NBC to assist with.”
“The team arrived on site and had the full PPE requirements including safety harnesses and barriers. They carried out the work in a very professional and friendly way. They even regularly stopped their own work to allow for the constant flow of wagons to load and unload, they did not even moan about it!!
They kept the staff informed of every stage of the project and even pointed out issue with the building that we were not aware of.
The gantry walkway is now safe, useable and is so very clean now, excellent work!!
We are very happy with the work and we feel that NBC went above and beyond the requirements by carrying out extra bits of work that we did not expect, other companies could learn from this professional approach.
We have no complaints at all from the whole experience and have nothing but admiration for the team, thank you NBC for a job very well done!!”
“falconry was a great success through the day – the lasers through the night!”
“NBC have always provided a consistent professional service. The team always conduct themselves professionally when on site and are always happy to answer any questions we have to help reduce populations further”
“NBC Environment has been working under contract for the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS) for over 4 years, and I would recommend their services.
NBC have provided us with a good level of service in relation to bird control on our sites and have helped to reduce the amount of Pigeon and Seagulls nesting/resting on the sites. We have calculated that in the first year of the contract over 4 tons of pigeon mess was removed from the roof areas and court yards because of NBC controlling the amount of bird resting in these areas.
I have always found NBC to be flexible to our site and have worked with the UHS to provide around the clock service when needed to have certain activities done to suit site needs.
In the last couple of years, we have invited NBC to attend up our hospital open day to show the public what we our doing and what they can do for us regarding supporting these activities. This has helped the public to understand what we have achieved and how working in partnership with NBC has assisted us in keeping a clean hospital environment. ”
“Just to add, I’d like to thank you for your help throughout the project. It’s been a pleasure to work with you on this project, like with all construction projects we have some challenges but your helpful attitude and collaborative working approach has made the works run seamlessly. You’ll definitely be at the top of our list for any future bird protection requirements.”
“I am very happy with the way that your company has dealt with our pest problems so far. To date everything you said you would do has considerably reduced the problem and the tenants although wary at the start are now saying that they are glad we have this in place.
One thing in particular is that when Dan comes on site to do his business quite a few people come up to him and are interested in what he’s doing and of course the lovely Hawks take centre stage!”
“The NBC team were very efficient and professional in every aspect of the project and kept me advise of the various stages of works etc.
The project ran very smoothly and did not interfere with our operations at all and we would highly recommend NBC to others.
Since this project we have seen a large reduction of gulls on our site to the point of there being just the odd one or two now and again. Myself my team now feel more safe working within the compound and there has been no issues with gulls swooping.
Thank you, NBC!!”
“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.”
“Historically we have had pest issues in the past, rats, mice, pigeons and Gulls and most recently Canadian Geese. Our previous supplier wasn’t getting quick results so we contacted NBC Environment on the back of some recommendations. Over the past 12 months NBC have done a fantastic job with rodent riddance programs and also a safe removal of the Canadian geese. We are very happy with NBC and we have just resigned for another 12 months. Craig Bickerstaffe our main point of contact is very professional and I cannot fault his service especially with the current situation with Covid-19. We will continue to be a customer with NBC”
“We called in NBC on short notice to advise us and the client on the best way to over come our problem. NBC gave us good advice and helped us over come all our issues on our short time frame.
The operatives that visited site and completed the work were very knowledgeable, and helpful. Look forward to working with NBC again.”
“We first approached NBC in 2015 as a large colony of gulls had taken residence on our roof. These gulls were causing a health and safety issue by dive bombing drivers, defecating over vehicles and sometimes members of staff.
NBC came in and recommended a bird control programme. This has been in place for 5 years and we have seen a dramatic reduction in numbers with the colony now being pushed away into the surrounding area – this has been a great investment for our company. NBC’s staff have always been knowledgeable, helpful and highly skilled when carrying out their work – I would strongly recommend them to any business.”
“We wouldn’t hesitate to utilise and recommend NBC Environments professional services in similar circumstances in the future if an opportunity of similar nature arose for a client.”
“I would just like to say thank you to your team for the netting installations and the excellent workmanship. We are more than happy with it and will definitely be using you again!!”
“It’s very rare for a such a large site to start at this time of year and not have an issue with nesting birds. The developer here had the foresight to appoint NBC to carry out mitigation on the site prior to us starting work there. Our dealings on site with NBC have been very easy and they professionally manage the site and worked with us.”
“NBC have provided great assistance in resolving our gull and pigeon infestation and I would recommend them wholeheartedly. Their team and systems are professional and very helpful, always looking for imaginative ways of resolving our issues. In a business that is unpredictable by nature, these are great assets.”
“Since first being approached and engaging with NBC environment, they have worked closely with us to offer operational solutions to ensure the safe operation and maintenance of our assets. Once engaged and discussing the services, we began to fully appreciate the breadth and depth of support they could and would begin to offer us.
This ranged from temporary deterrent measures to physical barriers to prevent unwanted gulls nesting on sensitive equipment and protecting our workforce from being attacked whilst working at height. Their expertise and supportive approach have made them a valued partner ASCO Fuels and Lubricants, moving forward.”
“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.”
“We have employed the services of NBC for many years on our business park in Kidderminster and on an ad hoc basis for our other projects and have always found their team professional, cost effective and reliable with their services. We would readily recommend NBC on the basis of the commercial contract we have with them.”
