Birds

Some feral/pest birds can be a big problem for business. Most gain access into a business through loading bay areas or damaged roofing.

A feral bird infestation can cause damage to your property by dislodging roof tiles, blocking guttering, building nests and leaving droppings that can be corrosive to building material. Some feral birds can be aggressive and attack customers and employees, especially during the breeding season when they are protecting their young. Feral birds are known to carry fleas,mites, ticks, lice and other biting insects which can spread diseases and pose a serious health risk.

Diseases Carried by Birds

Birds pests are well known to carry a range of diseases and are hosts to other insect pests. Humans can also develop symptoms similar to influenza from the spores from bird droppings.

Examples of transmissible bird diseases include:

  • Histoplasmosis is a respiratory disease that may be fatal. It results from a fungus growing in dried bird droppings.
  • Candidiasis is a yeast or fungus infection spread by pigeons. The disease affects the skin, the mouth, the respiratory system, the intestines and the urogenital tract.
  • Cryptococcosis is caused by yeast found in the intestinal tract of pigeons and starlings. The illness often begins as a pulmonary disease and may later affect the central nervous system.
  • Salmonellosis often occurs as "food poisoning" and can be traced to pigeons, starlings and sparrows. The disease bacteria are found in bird droppings; dust from droppings can be sucked through ventilators and air conditioners, contaminating food and cooking surfaces in restaurants, homes and food processing plants.
  • Escherichia coli (E.coli). When birds peck on cow manure, the E. coli go right through the birds and the bird droppings can land on or in a food or water supply. Can lead to illnesses such as gastro-enteritis and septicaemia.
  • Bird mites are often found in nests and roosting places. They feed mainly on bird blood but will also bite humans.
  • Fowl pest (also known as fowl plague). This virus can be transmitted to people when they’re exposed to faecal and other excretions from infected pigeon birds.
  • Psittacosis (also called Ornithosis or pigeon fancier's lung). This infection can be transmitted by inhaling the bacteria from dried droppings or handling feathers of infected pigeons or gulls.

Signs of a bird infestation problem

You can drastically reduce the length of time required to effectively control feral/pest birds if you know how to recognise the signs and take immediate action before if becomes a serious issue:

  • Birds setting on roofs or ledges
  • Bird noises including continuous bird cries, especially from young/baby birds.
  • Bird nests and nesting materials
  • Damaged stock from pecking and bird droppings
  • Droppings look for concentrated areas of droppings where birds roost
  • Debris from nests and feathers as these may block guttering and drainage systems which can lead to other problems

Bird Control Treatments for your business

Jentel Pest Management experienced technicians offer a range of effective bird deterrents. The feral/pest bird deterrents offered are safe, non-toxic and humane.

Bird Netting

Bird Netting

Bird netting can provide an immediate, effective and discreet solution to rid an area of pest bird problems. The nets are designed to provide 100% exclusion of birds and aim to eliminate birds from roosting and nesting in areas.

Bird Spikes

Bird Spikes

Bird spikes can offer an immediate and effective solution to rid an area of feral/pest bird species. Spikes can be fitted to most outside surfaces, preventing problems associated with birds landing on ledges and leaving unsightly, hazardous droppings.

Electric Bird Deterrent

Electric Bird Deterrent

The electric feral/pest bird deterrent is a cost-effective and discreet solution to keep pest birds away. A charger sends out a harmless yet noticeable pulse down the ‘track’ every two to three seconds. This electric pulse lasts only a fraction of a second. The birds are not harmed, but they do learn that the protected surface is to be avoided in the future.

Optical Bird Scanner

Optical Bird Scanner

Optical bird scanners work by reflecting light beams which make the feral/pest bird fly in another direction. It is completely harmless to the bird and will not disrupt your business operation. Only suitable for specific sites. Jentel Pest Management technicians will determine if the optical bird scanner is suitable for your business.

Do I Need Professional Bird Control Assistance?

The longer feral birds are allowed to nest or roost in an unwanted area, the harder it will be to remove them. Pigeons, for example, live in flocks of anywhere between 50 and 500, this means a small bird pest problem has the potential to become a large infestation. Jentel Pest Management provide professional deterrent services which can provide effective and discreet solutions to your bird problem.

Professional bird control is not only critical to avoid damage to your property but also to minimise the health risks posed by the presence of certain birds.

Why call in a professional pest controller for your Bird control?

Effective bird proofing requires the use of reliable and tested professional deterrents to ensure an effective, long term solution to any pest bird problem. Control and management of feral birds can sometimes be complicated due to the severity of the problem and the location. Jentel Pest Management takes into consideration several factors which determine the best method of pest bird control. These factors include: area of application; bird species; location and access
