Bird Control

We at Heightwise Access have been providing Bird Control Systems for over 20 years on all the various structures around the UK and we would be pleased to advise on what sort of System is required for your problem.

There are many Systems that can be used (we will advise if required) the most popular used are either Bird Netting: Bird Spikes: Bird Wire Narcotises or Repellent Gels.

 

 

CHOOSING THE CORRECT SYSTEM

Mistakes in the choice of Bird Proofing Systems can lead to embarrassing and expensive failures. Each System is only effective against certain species of Bird. Different Systems have different abilities to withstand the Pressure that the Birds will exert in trying to get back into the proofed area’s. Below is a description of the three main classifications.

HEAVY PRESSURE

Parts of a building used for nesting and night roosting. Generally a lot of fouling with nests, eggs and squabs. Birds are highly motivated to regain access. Netting is the only System that is likely to be successful in this situation. Spike Systems designed for Heavy Pressure situations will only give limited success and will most likely need to be backed up by a selective cull.

MEDIUM PRESSURE

Regular day roost, usually overlooking a food source. Often heavily fouled. Netting and Spike Systems can be confidently considered here.

LOW PRESSURE

Occasional daytime roost usually on an exposed part of the building. Little fouling to be seen. A large choice of Systems here, depending on budget and location.

As Heightwise Access are Steeplejacks and Rope Access Technicians in most contracts we can offer a more competitive service by not having to hire scaffolding and access plant.
