Get Expert Advice to Protect Your Home or Business
The last thing you want is for pest birds to start damaging your property. So call in the professionals to quickly stop them in their tracks.
Whether you have just moved into a new home or have lived in your current property for years, you’ll want to keep it free of any pests – including birds. Luckily, there are steps you can take to make sure that birds don’t wreck your property. Even better, someone else will do all of the hard work for you!
Familiarise yourself with your property
First of all, take the time to get to know your property. Identifying any areas that may be a magnet for birds will allow you to stay vigilant and spot a problem when it first occurs. Holes in roofs and walls are very attractive to birds such as swifts, while eaves are popular nesting places for swallows. Dormer windows on roofs are a haven for pigeons as well. So if you have any of features on your property keep an eye on them, and have any holes repaired.
It’s essential to act quickly when you spot a bird problem. Many birds nest all year, so they won’t go away on their own. A lot of homeowners underestimate just how much damage birds can do to a property. Their droppings are highly acidic, and over time these can make holes in roofs – which of course can lead to further issues. That’s before you even consider the damage caused by a build-up of nesting materials. Remember though – birds’s nests are protected by law. So don’t attempt any kind of action yourself.

If you suspect that you have a bird problem on your property, always call in the professionals. The team at Effective Bird Control have plenty of experience when it comes to dealing with bird problems. When they visit your home or business premises, they will quickly be able to identify which bird is present on your property and then come up with an effective course of action – one that is legal, effective and prompt. They’ll then get to work quickly, so you can get back to normal as quickly as possible.
Prevent future issues
After you have eradicated your bird problem, be sure to stop them coming back in future. Your pest control expert at Effective Bird Control will be able to advise you on the best bird prevention measures. Pigeon spikes and netting will stop those feathered pests from returning, as will anti-roost wires. Hawk kites are another really effective option, and use pest birds’ natural fear of prey birds. All of the anti-bird measures provided by Effective Bird Control are both humane and environmentally friendly, so you won’t be doing any damage by putting them in place.
Keeping those birds away
Once you have got all of your bird prevention measures in place, don’t jeopardise your hard work by feeding them. It’s always tempting to do so, especially if you have children who love nature. Even if you have anti-bird measures in place though, there could be another vulnerable spot on your property that you haven’t noticed yet – and then then whole cycle starts again! So try not to make your garden too appealing! If you need any additional advice, be sure to get in touch with Effective Bird Control, who will continue to advise you.
