Pigeon Proofing by VermatechReading, High Wycombe, Uxbridge...
For commercial properties only, Vermatech Pest Control offer a comprehensive pigeon proofing service. Feral pigeons can cause a number of problems. For example, when pigeons are present at a property, they attract a greater number of birds to also use the property. The presence of pigeons can also cause disease because their faeces contain a number of harmful pathogens which can lead to serious illnesses such as E Coli, Salmonella and Psittacosis. In addition to this, pigeon feathers and the nesting materials which they use contain numerous insect pests such as fleas, mites and flies. Along with dangerous health implications and the encouragement of further infestation from other birds and pests, when pigeons use a property they can cause corrosion and staining of the building structure. There is also a danger that faeces may fall directly onto the pavements outside your premises, therefore becoming hazardous to passing pedestrians and possibly resulting in a serious accident.
For all of the reasons listed above, pigeon proofing your premises is vital to ensure that your property remains both a healthy environment for those using it and that the building structure and appearance is maintained to a high standard. We have recently completed pigeon proofing work in the towns of Reading, Uxbridge and High Wycombe as well as surrounding areas.
Our Pigeon Proofing Methods
At Vermatech Pest Control we offer a number of pigeon proofing methods:
- Bird Netting Systems - these can be used to protect against any urban pest species. Vermatech Pest Control ensure that all Bird Netting Systems are fitted properly, with the correct size mesh for the species of bird in question. This type of bird proofing guards against even the most persistent birds in heavy bird pressure sites. We can fit Bird Netting Systems both horizontally (to enable the exclusion of bird pests from open areas - i.e. walls and courtyards) as well as vertically (to bird proof the front of large buildings for example). A combination of both horizontal and vertical Bird Netting Systems can also be used to protect installations on the roof of buildings (e.g. air conditioning units).
- Point Systems - these can be used to protect your premises against pigeons and gulls, working as a deterrent which relies upon upward pointing wires or spikes which deter the birds. Many different types of point system products are available. Point Systems are usually stuck in place using silicone adhesive but an alternative to this is to secure them with suitable screws.
- Wire Systems - these are a cost-effective bird deterrent method which is extremely versatile. Wire Systems have been used for many, many years to keep pigeons and gulls away from buildings. They are able to adapt to fit almost any building type or architectural feature.
