We can save you time and frustration dealing with your problem birds and that will save you money in the long run by having it done correctly the first time.
Trying to Control pigeons and other birds on the roof top or exterior buildings areas often requires quiet a considerably amount of effort. We find that the most effective and long lasting methods of control involve structural modifications which will either physically excludes the birds or pigeons from their preferred roosting or nesting surface or making it difficult for the birds to rest comfortably on the exposed building surfaces.
We have put together a list below and some detail information on many of the available bird or pigeon deterrent products that are available to us to help stop your birds and pigeons from making a mess on your home or business.
Bird spike is best used as a ledge deterrent. Stainless steel bird spike holds up to the Arizona heat better than the cheap plastic spike. Bird spike is a good deterrent for pigeons and larger birds but not small birds. When using bird spike be aware that sparrows may nest in the spike.
Bird netting is used for total bird exclusion by creating an envolope birds can't get into. Bird net needs to be supported by a cable or some sort of preminitor support system. Depending on type or size of bird will determine the netting needed. Pigeon net is 2" squares, Starling net is 1 1/8", Sparrow net is 3/4". Netting comes in Black or Tan, black is the perferred color since it holds up better in the Arizona sun and heat. Tan net can be used under canopies or out of the sun.
Galvanized screening can be used to securly close off roof line overhangs, tops of pillars and many other places for long term control. We use this same material for closing off under or around Solar Panels using special solar panel panel clips and attachments we custom build to hold the screen in place. We can paint to blend the screen and screw down all our screen unlike some companies that just staple the screen to the facia board.
Our solar panel pigeon deterrent screening system is designed to prevent pest birds from accessing the area beneath solar arrays. Pest birds like pigeons will nest under the solar array, creating a huge mess, causing damage and costly repairs and clean-up. Protect wiring systems, solar panels and your roof with our solar panel pigeon deterrent screening. We use galvanized material to close off around Solar Panels using special solar panel clips and attachments we custom build to hold the screen in place >> Solar Panel Pigeon Screening Information <<
Think of a dog or cattle shock fence but for birds. A Shock track system provides a mild but very effective very low profile solution to birds like pigeons when their feet make contact with the 2 stainless steel braided wires. Power is supplyed to the shock track by a plug-in charger or a solar powered charger.
Stainless steel post are spaced no more than 5 feet apart with a thin braided stainless steel wire run between post which creates an unstable area for pigeons to stand on. Usually have to use several rows depending on width of ledge. A single row can be used when running along a cable or pipe.
The arms wave gently in the breeze and as pigeon fly to land they hit the waving arms and leave. Works good on light poles, Ac units and chimney caps as long as you don't have a real fire in the chimney or the DDL will melt.
Looks like a big slinkly when streched out. Bird coils create and un-stable landing surface that most bigger birds like pigeons don't like and will avoid parapet walls where these are installed. Bird coil provides a very low visibilty solution to parapets and other types of ledges.
Looks like a holloween toy but is very effective at scaring away woodpeckers as the make any type of drumming sound. Hang up a scare spider off of a facia board and when the wood pecker starts to drum the scare spider drops about 2' on a string scaring the woodpecker. The scare spider then works it way back up the string moving its legs as it goes.
Let the sun help scare away your birds. The Eagle Eye is an optical bird scarer device that harmlessly deters birds from unwanted areas by making use of light beams reflected from direct sunlight or artificial light. The light beam reflected back by the Eage Eye disorients birds in flight by limiting their vision significantly.
Use on parapet walls and other places where the sun reflects back at the bird to disorient the bird, much like the Eage Eye. Should be use in conjunction with other deterrent products or hazing systems.
OvoControl P is a ready to use bait that controls the reproduction of treated birds, causing the population to decline. Ovocontrol interferes with egg hatchability. Since no new birds are hatching, the population declines. We see as much as an 80% decline over 24 months. OvoControl is used with an auto feeder at the rate of 1 lb per 80 birds per day. If the pigeons stop eatting the pellets they become fertile again.
The system works by inhalation and irritation of the respiratory system and the birds soft tissue membranes, without any risk to the birds or peoples health. M.A. is a grape extract that when turned into a mist even in small doses repels most larger birds like pigeons, but is not as effective on small birds. Use in hangars, food courts, shopping malls, product processing plants, and other open air places to reduce the current population. It does leave a slight grape scent in the air.
Made of UV stablized polycarbonate materials. Bird slide or bird slope completely protects the ledge against all birds species; they simply can't get a grip on the 45 degree angle and slide off. There are also extentions that can be added to protect wider ledges like in parking structures. When the product is reversed and placed along the wall and ceiling they provide a very good barrier to stop Swallows from from nesting by breaking up the angle.
A very reliably way of reducing the current residebnt population of pigeons from most sites as long as there is a flat or slightly pitched roof available. Many times trapping will reduce a very large flock of pigeons to a few in a number of months. Pigeon trapping is a good way to reduce the size of a flock of resident birds when they are attached to or have been nesting on a building for a long time. Some times even after non-lethal deterrents have been installed pigeons will not leave.
Sparrows are a tuff little bird to trap which is why there are a lot of different styles for the same place. Some traps use sound to attract and others use seed bait. Places like big box stores have sparrow problems and it is never an easy or one time fix since they leave the doors wide open and have food inside that attracts the sparrows to the inside.
Large vented warehouse screen doors that slide open and then can be closed to prevent birds coming into the warehouse through the open door. The screen are a coated rubberized mater with lost of holes air flows in and out and from the insides looking out you can easily see through the screen. The doors slide on rollers that are inside of a metal track for long term use.
Like the plastic owls visual bird deterrents come in all sorts of designs and styles There are reflector streamer tape, scare eye ballons (shown), bird reflector diverters, holographic owls and other such things. We have yet to see most any of this work on their own, but used along side other more proven methods many time will help.
Sound systems usually make distress calls or preditor and hawlk calls to scare off unwanted birds. Sound systems are very loud and are best not used around public places, up on a 5 story building roof top or blasting over a mines over flow pit or retention area can sometimes be helpfull.
Bird gells have been around for 50 plus years in all different formulations and when it comes down to it they do not work. Bird gells create a sticky mess and when the larger birds walk through it they just move the gell around, small birds when they walk in it get stuck and die all coverd in a sticky mess. Gells get covered in dust or dirt after a short time and the Arizona heat breaks down the gell and it can start to run.nissim lorem tortor.
Bats like small tight places, when doing exclusion bat work we never want to just close off the area and let the bats die. Bat cones at placed at points along the gaps we are sealing so that when night come the bats will find their way out through the bat cone but because its at an angle the bats can not climb back up the cone. Hopefully they relocate to anothe building if we did our job correctly. After a period of time when the bats have left the cones can be removed and the opening sealed.
Plastic owls or plastic hawlks do not work, maybe for like two seconds but not long term.
They do not work, they do not work, they do not work, they do not work, they do not work - how many times do we need to say it?
