Whilst most Australian birds are considered harmless creatures and mere joys of nature. There are some pest species around the Sydney metropolitan area such as the Feral Pigeon, Sparrow, Minor Bird and Starling that are considered as pests.

The main reason these birds are considered as pests is because they are carriers of fleas, mites, ticks and lice.

They love to nest inside the roofs of homes and buildings and their unpleasant droppings are more hazardous than they look. These birds along with their droppings contain more than 60 pathogens and diseases such as E.Coli and Salmonella all of which pose serious health risks to us humans. Once their droppings become dry they become dust like and airborne meaning we as humans are breathing these pathogens into our airways which can make us dangerously sick.

These birds can cause thousands of dollar’s worth of damage to buildings and homes.

The most common way birds gain entry into a building or home is by dislodging roof tiles. They will even gain access under broken ridge capping, drain hole pipes, chimneys and vents. In fact, a gap as small as a 50c piece is big enough for a bird to gain entry.

These birds also cause blocked gutters with their nesting materials and droppings. Did you know their droppings also stain and even corrode building surfaces.

Birds are also known to become very territorial believing your home or workplace is theirs. Often becoming aggressive trying to swoop and attack you when protecting their partners, nests or when they have their babies.

SOLAR PANEL BIRD PROOFING

Our custom made solar panel bird proofing system will stop all birds for gaining access underneath your solar panels 100% Guaranteed. We install a heavy duty mesh to the perimeter of your solar panels using our custom made clipping system. We do not drill or apply adhesives to your solar panel system which can void the warranty of your solar panels. This system once installed is very strong and has a very low visual impact to your roof. Our mesh also allows your solar panels to have access to fresh air and also allows the rain water to freely pass down into your gutters. This system can also be removed and reapplied if maintenance to the panels is required.

STAINLESS STEEL SPIKES

Stainless Steel Spikes

Stainless steel spikes prevent birds from being able to comfortably sit or roost on whichever surface these spikes are installed to. We use a special adhesive specifically designed for these bird spikes to install them to almost any surface such as business signage, beams, lights, pipes, ledges, security cameras, window sills and any other places they may try to find a foothold.

The spikes are made from stainless steel so they can withstand even the worst weather conditions. They come in different sizes and can be curved or cut to suit the architectural design of any building.

STEALTH NETTING

Stealth Netting for Gravel Roof Top

This netting earned the name ‘stealth’ because it is almost undetectable to even the human eye once it has been installed. It is available in various sizes and is made of very thin, strong strands of polyethylene twine, making it very strong and highly resistant to ultraviolet rays. Once stealth bird netting is in place, it covers roof tops, car parks, garages, loading docks to make it impossible for any pest bird to gain entry.

 

AVI STRAND WIRE

Protected Window Ledge with Avi Strand Wire

When you need to deter pest birds without affecting the aesthetics of your building, you need AVI Strand Bird Wire. It is virtually invisible from the ground so it will not spoil the look of your building. AVI Strand Bird Wire consists of stainless steel posts and wire that can be used effectively to deter birds from being able to comfortably land or roost. It can be secured to most surfaces, using UV stable post support bases. If needed, we also use custom made edge saver stainless steel brackets.

 

PERIMETER ROOF PROOFING

Perimeter Roof Proofing installed to the Guttering

By proofing the perimeter of the roof, pest birds and even rodents find it impossible to gain access to your building via the roof. This proofing is made from aluminium and has a powder coat finish which can be matched to suit the colour of your roof. It is strong and will not warp or burn. This is the most compatible protection against pest birds for all roofing types. This proofing is not only good to deter birds. It also helps keep your gutters clean and free from leaves and debris. When applied to the lip of the gutter, the other side is placed over the first and under the second tile, thus covering the gutter and stopping debris from getting into it. We attached the mesh to the gutter of a tiled roof using a color-coded aluminium trim and for a metal roof we fasten the mesh down to the roof by using saddle clips.

 

ELECTRIC BIRD SHOCK TRACK SYSTEMS

Bird Shock Electric Track

Bird Shock Electric Track

One of the most effective deterrents against all bird species, is the Electric Shock Bird Track System. It is made from PVC and stainless steel and will not be harmed by UV rays. The track is very flexible to ensure it can be adapted to the design of any building. It is only ¼ inch high and cannot be seen from the ground looking up. Based on the principal of ‘fright and flight’ it conditions the bird to start avoiding the area in which it was frightened by the electric shock. This track should not be used in lower areas deeming the track accessible to be touched by humans.

 

BIRD TRAPPING PROGRAMS

Bird_Trap (1)

Pest Bird Trap

Where there is a large population of pest birds we suggest reducing the flock by installing bird traps onsite. The traps are available in different sizes to make provision for different sized birds such as the Feral Pigeon or Myna Bird. The traps are set up where the birds are inhabiting and a program is put in place to ensure the cages are maintained with fresh water, seed and the trapped birds are euthanized as per our governing regulations. This method of removal is ideal when there are non-target birds also around such as Native Birds which we don’t remove.

BIRD BAITING PROGRAMS

This program is ideal when other methods are not feasible or we are culling in an enclosed environment such as a factory or warehouse. Initially, birds are fed on untreated grain in a secluded area. Once their confidence is gained, they are fed a grain that has been treated with a narcotic substance. This enables easy capture of the birds. The baiting method works very well where a specific pest bird is being targeted.

BIRD SHOOTING

Performing a Bird shoot is the quickest, most cost effective and efficient way of getting rid of pest birds. Forensic Pest Management Services is accredited and licensed to use air rifles to remove pest birds in built-up areas like warehouses, factories, shopping centres and schools.

More Reasons To Control Birds Around Your Home & Family

When birds gain access to buildings they love to roost on exposed ledges, window sills, air-conditioning units, verandas, garages and many more. Sometimes birds will nest in downpipes or in guttering systems, causing problems with water flow and even causing moisture damage to internal walls. Bird faeces can also cause a disruption in the normal water flow in guttering, causing metal guttering to erode.

But there is a much bigger concern with pest and birds than mere damage to a building, this could be why you need bird control in Sydney. These birds can pose a severe health risk to humans. Fungal organisms like histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis and aspergillosis are commonly found in bird droppings. When the spores from these fungal organisms become airborne they can be inhaled, where they will cause influenza-like symptoms. In the elderly or others with a compromised immune system, it can develop into more serious and even deadly illnesses.

The deadly food poisoning bacteria salmonella can also be carried in bird droppings. When humans come into contact with this virus, it can have deadly consequences.

Our mission at Forensic Pest Management Services is to rid your environment from pest birds by making their roosting and nesting sites inaccessible. We use various methods but are always committed to using only methods that are safe and humane.

When you contact us to report a problem with pest birds, one of our trained and certified technicians will come to your premises where he will assess the situation and discuss with you the best and most cost-effective method for getting rid of the birds.
