Signs of a Bird Infestation

Your business premises could be the ideal habitat for pest birds. Pigeons have learnt how to survive in most environments, scavenging our waste food and needing only the smallest amount of shelter to make their nests.

The longer birds are allowed to nest or roost in an unwanted area, the harder it will be to remove them. For example, pigeons are gregarious creatures living in flocks of anywhere between 50 and 500, so a small problem has the potential to turn into a large infestation.

Professional deterrent services can provide effective and discreet solutions to your bird problem, such as irritating bird sounds.

Common Bird Infestation Signs

Recognising the signs of a serious problem and getting an immediate solution can drastically reduce the length of time needed to effectively control pest birds.

    • Birds settling on roofs or ledges.
    • Bird noises - continuous bird cries, especially from young chicks.
    • Bird nests - 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 - may block guttering and drainage systems, potentially leading to damp damage.

  • Where to look for bird problems -

    • Pigeons use areas of tall buildings and flat roofs to nest.
    • Balconies, ledges, chimney stacks, guttering and culverts are favourite areas for nesting.
    • 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 gain access.
