How do you stop birds nesting on a power station?

Agrilaser Bird Control System
One of our existing clients recently called us in to carry out some bird proofing to deter gulls and other birds from nesting and roosting on their rooves.

We installed a state of the art laser system – Agrilaser – which uses birds’ natural instincts to deter them from nesting or roosting.

The fully automated system circulates a green laser beam on a timing mechanism which sweeps across the roof tops. Birds see the approaching green beam of light as a threat. Their innate survival instinct kicks in and they fly away.

The continuous presence of this moving laser beam will keep areas bird free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  The laser system is fully automated and can be run 24/7 giving it a great advantage over the hand held products on the market which need staff to operate regularly.

The Agrilaser system has many advantages including:

·         It’s easy to deploy in all situations.

·         Safe for the birds and humans.

·         No maintenance is required.Agrilaser Bird Control System

If you have birds nesting on your premises in large numbers they can cause several problems. Over time nests and droppings block gutters and downpipes and the resulting overflowing rainwater can ultimately lead to structural damage to buildings. Their droppings can be a health hazard spreading disease as well as posing a slip hazard on footpaths and the land around the nest and roost sites.

Bird proofing gutter boxes at Jarrolds Norwich

8 Apr

Last month we were working at Jarrolds Norwich, bird proofing their gutter boxes. They had noticed that pigeons were nesting behind the gutter boxes and called us in. We cleared away the nesting material and then manufactured and fitted bespoke metal plates and spikes to the gutter boxes. If this problem had been left untreated they could have caused serious flood damage due to blocking the gutter and down pipe.

Rain gutters have always been a problem bird area and bird proofing gutter boxes is an important job as over time pigeon and seagull nests and droppings block gutters and down pipes. If this happens the resulting overflowing rain water leads to timber decay, broken rendering, ruined decoration and, in some cases, structural damage. The resulting repair work can be costly.

There is a wide range of bird proofing systems on the market today and with our expertise we can recommend the best method to control your bird pest problems. From netting, post-and-wire systems, spikes or gel systems to the Avishock system. This is an RSPB approved product that educates birds via a harmless electric shock – in the same way that electric fences manage cattle – to stop them landing and nesting on ledges, roofs and other locations on your property. This is particularly useful for Grade 1 and Grade 2 listed buildings and other sites where some conventional bird proofing methods are not allowed. We can also offer the latest laser bird proofing technology.

The standard of our work is extremely high. We are proud to be one of only a few companies in the country who have achieved National Pest Technician Association (NPTA) gold accreditation. Meaning all our facilities, procedures and training practices have been fully audited and accredited.  Our team has over 55 years combined experience in bird proofing, and the services we offer include in-depth site audits and risk assessments.  We have also achieved CSCS cards, enabling us to work on construction sites where there are often bird proofing issues. We are also IPAF certified for working at heights.

Bird Control for Warehouse in Norfolk

Our technicians working last week on the Norfolk coast in a warehouse, carrying out pigeon proofing measures to prevent them roosting and harbouring inside this building.

By installing weld mesh over air vents it will stop the birds gaining access into the building creating havoc with alarms being triggered off, along with guano potentially damaging / contaminating goods.

Bird Free Gel – An innovative bird control system

31 Dec

An innovative bird control system, that is quick, easy to use and is very effective. Bird Free keeps all pest birds off structures without harming them, whilst maintaining the aesthetics of the structure.

This year we have installed many bird proofing systems and 2014 looks like we will continue to be very busy helping companies protect their buildings. The Bird Free Gel system is a great innovation that is installed on flat areas, pitched roofs and angled surfaces. Birds see ultraviolet light so Bird Free appears to them as fire, keeping them well away.

May we take this opportunity in wishing everyone a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year.

Post and wire bird system Installed in North Norfolk

31 Dec

A post and wire bird system is a standard bird proofing device that is normally installed on  flat surfaces to stop birds perching and roosting.  The main benefit of a post and wire system is that it is virtually invisible when installed at height and viewed from ground level.

These photographs were taken from our bird proofing project at Wells Next the Sea, North Norfolk.

Bird Proofing Wells-Next-the-Sea North Norfolk

9 Jul

Last week we were at Wells-Next-The-Sea on the North Norfolk Coast to install an Avistrand pin and wire solution on the gantry of The Granary.  We used stainless steel ridge brackets specifically designed and fabricated to adjust and lock onto roof ridges.  We operate a number of Bird Proofing methods for Bird Control.

The wires are then tensioned and fixed on each pin which in turn will stop gulls and pigeons landing on the brand new re-roofed slated Gantry.

Because of the building being listed and of importance,  we had to  match the stainless steel to the colour of the ridge.  The brackets were sprayed by us  to colour match the roof.

Bird Proofing on Cromer Church

8 Jul

We have just completed some Bird Proofing work on Cromer Church on the North Norfolk coast. The bird proofing work involved netting church windows with fire retardant pigeon netting to stop pigeons roosting. The fire retardant was needed as the windows are lit up with lights that give off heat. Other work was completed on the roof to repair gull pin and wire work which was on the parapet.

Our team have over 55 years combined experience in bird proofing, and the services we offer include in depth site audits and risk assessments. We have also achieved CSCS cards, enabling us to work on construction sites where there are often bird proofing issues.
