Serving the Greater San Francisco Bay Area Since 1985

Birds Away/Pigeons Away is a division of Van Gelder Enterprises, Inc. that specializes in humanely solving pest bird and pigeon problems and activity on any surface where birds may land, (ex. ledges, rooflines, windowsills, columns, solar panels, etc.) in a low-visibility, aesthetically positive way.

Our firm has been solving bird problems in San Francisco and the surrounding greater Bay Area for over 30 years.  We are a California Corporation and Small Business, with a commitment to quality work and fair pricing. These two ideas have been the basic guidelines in serving our client’s needs, while continually refining our techniques.

Commitment to quality work and superior customer service: These are the foundations upon which we built our business. We get it done the right way – – with humane, non-harmful, non-toxic materials and installation techniques.

Aesthetics: We believe that pest bird deterrent systems should be low-visibility and aesthetically appropriate for residential, commercial or industrial buildings, while solving the pest bird infestation issue.

Guarantee: All of our work is backed by our Installation and Performance Guarantee. If you experience bird problems in the areas that we have treated, (provided that the areas have not been altered or damaged by others), we will absolutely return and fix the problem at no additional cost to you.

Trained Staff: Each job is completed by our team of full-time, long-term employees. Our technicians are API and Boom Operator Certified.  We do all of our own work – – no subcontracting! We have made the choice to do all of our own work to ensure that each phase of every job we do meets our exacting quality standards. Birds Away has completed over 10,000 jobs, which continues to grow.

Licensed, Bonded and Insured: We maintain all licenses required by the State of California. We will happily provide evidence of all licenses and insurance upon request.
