Do You Need to Hire a Bird Control Specialist?

Specialist bird control experts are trained to discourage the settling and breeding of birds in public and private areas. These pest control officers will use tried and tested techniques to encourage the birds to move on as humanely as possible. The most well-known bird pests are pigeons, however there are many other types of bird that can prove themselves a nuisance and require removal, from starlings to seagulls.

Birds can pose a serious threat to the health, safety and cleanliness of your home and can even impact your day-to-day life, making your surroundings feel messy and dirty. HaMuch can help you find a bird control specialist to take care of the problem as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

What Does a Bird Control Specialist Do?

Bird pest control specialists are experts in handling birds and know how to remove them effectively. Their duties include:

  • Commercial and domestic installation of spike/wiring systems: A bird control expert can install a spike system, which is a simple and effective way to discourage birds. The installation of blunt wire tips or slipping plastic surfaces prevents the birds from settling.
  • Installation of kites and balloons: An expert can install fixed, weather-resistant kites or balloons to your building. As they move and draw a dark silhouette in the sky, they trigger the animals' innate escape reflex and prevent them from settling down over a long period of time. This can be a good method of pond protection, if you have outdoor fish that are at risk from herons or seagulls..
