Bird Control

Although having birds in the garden is often enjoyable, there are some birds that can ultimately become pests primarily due to their droppings, the risk of spreading disease and the damage they can cause to property.

Bird Control Facts & Figures

Nests can block drains, chimneys and flues which could potentially be lethal. They can also be the source of many unpleasant insect pests, for example:

  • Blood Feeding Insects:  Fleas, Mites, Ticks & Lice
  • Fabric Damaging Pests:  Carpet Beetles
  • Stored Product Pests:  Larder, Fur & Fridge Beetles
  • Carrion feeding pests: Blow Flies, Beetles
  • Bird droppings not only look unsightly, they can:
  • They can lead to slippery surfaces, a problem in public areas
  • Damage buildings through direct chemical action
  • Dry droppings (Guano) can cause lung disease & asthma

What is Bird Proofing?

Bird proofing solar panels, roofs, windows and other areas of your property is a way to deter birds and an effective preventative measure for bird control. Birds can become a serious nuisance and AJ Pest & Bird Control carry out a lot of bird proofing to homes and business premises including bird proofing solar panels, roofs, gutters, ledges and windows. Our technicians inspect your property and provide a plan to clean, sanitise and proof the area leaving it clean and safe.

Bird droppings increase the risk of the spread of disease, insects and parasites as well as physical damage to the premises. By reducing the pest and disease risks, we reduce the possibility of contamination and damage to property in the future. 

AJ Pest & Bird Control delivers preventative measures to deter birds. Certified by the National Pest Technician Association (NPTA), our technicians use their expertise to install systems such as nets, bird spikes or wire systems to prevent birds from perching, fouling and nesting on windows, ledges, gutters, roofs and as an effective means of bird proofing solar panels.

Bird Control & Bird Protection

When dealing with pest birds, bird control legislation and UK law must be followed. The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 states that all wild birds, their nests and eggs are protected. AJ Pest & Bird Control can help you deal with any birds that may be a nuisance to you and your property. There are exceptions whereby some birds are regarded as pests and in certain situations can be culled. These exceptions are controlled by the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and should only be carried out by authorised persons using approved methods such as those used by AJ Pest Control.

AJ Pest & Bird Control will inspect these situations for you and carry out such bird control measures if necessary. If we can demonstrate that appropriate non-lethal methods of control such as scaring or bird proofing are either ineffective or impractical, we may be able to assist and carry out other procedures as needed.
