Bird Nesting Control

NBC are the UK’s leading experts in bird control with 28 years’ experience helping companies to navigate the conflict that can occur between nature and business. We always aim to minimise the impact to wildlife and our clients’ operations, while being compliant with UK legislation.

The very first thing to understand is that ALL bird’s nests are protected by law and it is a criminal offence, with a potential prison sentence, to take or remove them. The only way you can have a bird’s nest removed is through obtaining a license. If you are having issues with birds’ nests, then we can provide expert removal advice at every stage. This advice includes bird nesting deterrents to stop future bird nesting.
