Signs of a Bird Infestation

You may not realise it but your business premises could be the ideal habitat for pest birds. Pigeons and seagulls have learnt how to survive in most environments, scavenging our waste food and needing only the smallest amount of shelter to make their nests.

Here are just some of the ways they’ve adapted to make use of the urban environment:

  • Pigeons and seagulls use seemingly inhospitable areas of tall buildings and flat roofs to nest.
  • Balconies, ledges, chimney stacks, guttering and culverts are favourite areas for these birds.
  • Seagulls in particular like to flock together on flat roofs.
  • Any gap larger than 25mm that allows access to your building is a potential entry point for pigeons.
  • Pigeons prefer roof spaces to roost in and can shift loose or damaged tiles to get in.

Our safe, cost-effective and eco-friendly bird control solutions will displace birds without harming them.

FACT: Pigeons are gregarious creatures living in flocks of anywhere between 50 and 500, so a small problem has the potential to turn into a much larger one.

Pigeon or Seagull Infestation Signs

What should you look out for that might be a sign of a bird infestation? What should set alarm bells ringing?

  • Birds settling on roofs or ledges.
  • Continuous bird cries, especially from young chicks.
  • Nesting materials strewn about your premises.
  • Damaged stock, from pecking and bird fouling.
  • Droppings concentrated in areas where birds roost.
  • Debris from nests and feathers, which may block guttering and drainage systems, potentially leading to damp damage.
