Pest birds such as pigeons and seagulls can cause a lot of nuisance to homes and businesses. Their droppings are highly acidic and can damage property and make surfaces slippery and dangerous to walk on as well as smelling unpleasant, looking unsightly and harbouring and spreading diseases.
In addition they may encourage insect infestations such as fleas and mites which are attracted to their nests and roosting areas. Birds can also have a detrimental impact on crops when they feed on them or steal from fruit orchards.
There are many approaches to bird proofing including gels, posts and wires, netting/mesh and spikes.
A survey is required to work out the best method.
