Welcome to National Bird Control in Barnsley

The Battle of the Balcony

Pigeons are notoriously awful neighbours. Once they move in, they pack in all their friends and relatives, and take over the neighbourhood. Pigeons are highly gregarious, quick to breed, and in an urban environment have few predators that are hardy enough to go after them in their massive roosts. Unfortunately, rats are drawn to pigeon roosts because of the eggs, and the easy prey that awaits them there. Getting control of pigeons also reduces the chance of exposure to the parasites and pathogens that they carry. If you have pigeons treating your balcony like they own the place, it is time to get control.

Step One: Clean Up

In case you haven’t noticed, pigeons habitually leave a lot of droppings. Not only are these droppings unsightly and smelly, but they are also unsanitary and can carry bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses. Many people don’t know that they can also damage stone, paint, and concrete with their acids. This is not a DIY job! National Bird Control has the equipment and expertise to safely clean and dispose of pigeon droppings in Barnsley. Getting rid of these droppings is imperative before proceeding to step two.

Step Two: Eviction

Evicting pigeons is a simple matter of making them feel unsafe in their current environment. The best way to do this is to simply remove their nests. Their nests are not only the places that they feel safe enough to sleep, but it’s the place that they lay eggs, hatch, and raise their young. By removing the colony’s nests, the pigeons will get the message that this is not a good place to be.

Step Three: Area Denial

Cleaning up and nest removal are a pair of interlocking short-term strategies employed by National Bird Control. Long-term area denial relies on things like metal mesh to bar birds from attractive nesting sites, pigeon nets for balconies, and bird spikes to deny them landing places. Once area denial measures are in place, routine maintenance the mesh, spikes, and pigeon nets for balconies keep the pigeons in line.
