From pigeons to seagulls, birds nesting or perching on buildings can be a real nuisance. The cooing of pigeons and the squawking of seagulls can really get on the resident’s nerves (not to mention being woken up at dawn), but the biggest issue is what birds leave behind.
Bird droppings are highly acidic, and damage stone and other building materials – that’s in addition to the ugly mess.
There are also health risks associated with fungi and bacteria breeding in bird droppings and feathers, from Cryptococcosis to salmonella. Some of them can be fatal to vulnerable people. No wonder that the owners and managers of residential, commercial and public buildings spend thousands of pounds on hundreds of manhours devoted to cleaning and repairing damage caused by birds.
Installing bird deterrent systems is the best solution to bird pests. These include wire mesh bird netting and bird spikes, which offer permanent, humane and most crucially, effective, solution.
Rope access techniques offer the optimal solution to all bird-proofing challenges, as the operatives can move freely on the roofs, balconies, along the walls and in all nooks and crannies of the building’s external structure, while their safety is ensured by the correct use of rope and harness. At HiSolution, we have extensive experience in installing bird deterrent, of which bird spikes are the most popular and simplest, but also among the most effective.Protecting your building and its users from mess, damage and hazards caused by pigeons and other flying pests is simpler than you think.
