Information about birds

Birds cause millions of pounds worth of damage to buildings every year, with pigeons the chief culprits.

They roost on ledges, sloping roofs and under bridges, destroying insulation, defacing surfaces and blocking pipes and gutters with their droppings and nesting materials. Pigeons also carry diseases which are a health risk to humans.

Our bird control service includes advice and help on: 

  • Clearing bird mess and droppings
  • Disinfecting the area
  • Installation of all types of bird proofing, including netting and anti-roosting systems
