Birds

image001No matter how some birds are an important and a beautiful part of nature, they may also be a nuisance and create many serious health and safety concerns by their presence. Loss of product, damage to crops, cleanup and maintenance costs are just a few of the concerns that these nuisance birds can create.

To control birds without harming them, exclusion and repellents are the foundation of our programs. The objectives for our techniques are to:

  • Effectively prevent birds from roosting.
  • Maintain the appearance and integrity of the building.
  • Be inconspicuous and reversible.
  • Protect the building's occupants.


Our experts evaluate each situation to develop a customized approach, and they have the training and experience to correctly install a variety
of techniques including:

Cleanup/Sanitation Services - Proper cleanup and sanitation is an essential part of a successful bird control program, since excrement should be completely removed before the installation of any bird control products. We offer a number of cleaning services, including steam cleaning, power washing, and odour control, that can be adapted to any situation.

Exclusion Netting – A virtually invisible netting can be installed in protected areas and certain other applications to totally eliminate birds from roosting and nesting. Different mesh sizes are available and colours coordinated to match the building, to provide a long term, virtually invisible installation. Specific installation specifications - consisting of hardware, fasteners, and other concerns - are discussed prior to the installation.

Wire Deterrent System - Horizontally strung stainless steel, plastic-coated wires are strategically placed on areas where birds commonly roost and perch to physically take up the space they would normally occupy. These areas would consist of window sills, roof parapets, cornices, and gutters.

Spikes - Stainless steel spikes, polycarbonate spikes, or a combination of the two can be installed on horizontal roosting and perching areas without penetrating building surfaces. There are a variety of sizes and models to choose from to provide a customized solution to match the particular needs of your building.

Problems Causes by Pigeon Infestation


The feral Pigeon is the only bird in the world that will make nests using its own droppings. These droppings, when dry, harbour over 40 known diseases including Salmonellosis, Cryptococcosis, Histoplasmosis and Ornithosis (Psitacosis, Parrot fever), the latter two causing blindness and even death.
Accumulating and decaying bird droppings create offensive odours and will attract flies and other disease carrying insects, especially during summer. Droppings are also highly corrosive, not only to metal, but to concrete as well.
Freshly painted surfaces do not stay clean for too long. Birds can mess up a building façade within 5 weeks.
Through our ability to install these methods, our bird control service is backed by warranties of up to ten years.
