The best first step in treating for pest birds is to have a thorough inspection. A quality inspection by one of our experienced Sales Managers will lead to the identification of the type of pest bird that you are experiencing problems with; familiarization of the architectural style of your home and the assessment of the degree of the present infestation. Once those factors are assessed, a Birds Away Sales Manager can provide you with a proposal that offers an effective, low-visibility, tailor-made solution for your pest bird problem.
A successful installation of deterrents for pest birds starts with cleaning the affected areas for removal of nesting debris and droppings. This step sanitizes the target area(s), removes the source of attraction for other birds and prepares the surface for the installation of bird deterrents.
Following cleaning, tailor-fit, low-visibility bird deterrents are installed to exclude the pest birds from the target areas. In this photo, galvanized wire mesh is installed in a recessed area to exclude pigeons.
In San Francisco, neighboring buildings often share spaces between, called “lightwells”. In this photo we have stretched tailor-fitted exclusion netting across the top of the lightwell to exclude pigeons.
In certain residences, we also see multiple types of pest birds nesting and roosting. In this photo, our client was treating both pigeons and swallows. The wire mesh excluded the larger pigeons from the recessed area, while the netting to the right excluded the swallows.
Many clients also have issues with pigeons getting under their roof-top solar panels. In this photo, we cleaned up the bird droppings and removed the pigeon nests between the solar panels. We used a wand to pressure wash the middle panel areas that were not accessible by hand. After the cleaning was completed, we installed a coated wire mesh around the perimeter of the solar panels to create a barrier between the solar panels and the roof. Specialized hooks were used to secure the mesh without tampering with solar panels. No drilling or glue was required.
