Bird Control Cape Town
Tired of the nuisance? We can assist.
When birds access premises and start making it their home, these avian intruders can inflict serious damage, such as dislodging roof tiles, blocking guttering systems with their nests, and leaving unsightly droppings. However, the issues don’t stop at property damage. Birds can also be vectors for various biting insects, including ticks, fleas, mites, and, more importantly, disease. Therefore, bird proofing and control measures are not just about preventing nuisance and damage – they are critical for maintaining health and safety!
What Is Bird Proofing?
Bird proofing is a sustainable and eco-conscious strategy that encourages birds to relocate to natural habitats and discourages them from nesting in buildings.
It uses physical, visual, and auditory deterrents to prevent birds from perching or nesting and becoming pests. When implemented correctly, these methods form a significant part of bird control and play a critical role in maintaining and reducing bird-related issues. Deterrents also help minimise property damage caused by birds.
Why Bird Proof?
Reduced Pest Populations:
Birds often carry various pests like ticks, mites, and fleas. Keeping birds away from your property can reduce the risk of other pest infestations.
Many pests carried by birds are vectors for diseases that can affect humans. By controlling bird populations on your property, we help you prevent the spread of such diseases.
Bird proofing can be a cost-effective solution in the long run as it helps to prevent the need for extensive pest treatments and repairs caused by bird-associated pests.
By keeping birds away, you can improve sanitation and cleanliness in and around your property or business.
Prevents Food Contamination:
Businesses in the food industry benefit from bird control as it helps prevent contamination, ensuring compliance with food safety regulations.
Are Birds Settling In?
While the occasional bird flying near your property is not a cause for concern, certain signs may indicate a need for professional intervention. If you notice a large number of birds consistently settling on your property’s roofs or ledges, continuous bird noises – particularly from chicks – or evidence of bird nests and nesting materials, it might be time to seek expert assistance. Other tell-tale signs include stock damage from persistent pecking, substantial amounts of bird droppings, and an abundance of feathers and nest debris scattered across your property, including in your drainage system.
