Birds in the wrong location, in particular pigeons and seagulls can become a real nuisance for your business. It’s not just the mess they make; they can also damage your premises by dislodging roof tiles, blocking guttering and drive away your customers affecting your reputation. There are other problems that mean you should adopt bird control measures sooner rather than later. Pigeons and seagulls on your premises can:

  • Deface buildings & vehicles with their droppings. They frequently foul entrances and pavements, which can become dangerously slippery.
  • Encourage insect infestations such as bird mites, textile beetles and fleas – these are attracted to their nests and roosting sites.
  • Attack customers and staff, especially during the breeding season when they are defending their young.
  • Be a health hazard, by spreading diseases such as Ornithosis, E.Coli and Salmonella.
