Effective bird pest control service
Is your property being plagued by birds and their mess? In large numbers, birds can sometimes become significant pests. Flocks of pigeons, gulls and starlings are the main culprits in our region. They tend to congregate on roofs and in the recesses of building exteriors, dropping their excrement over the immediate area.
Aside from the visible mess, large amounts of bird droppings create slip hazards on walkways below where birds congregate. They also pose a significant health risk to humans.
Bacteria, spores and fungi, including the likes of Salmonella and Cryptococcosis, are present in bird guano. Anyone involved in the clear-up operation of bird fouling must therefore wear protective clothing and a breathing mask.
With the ever increasing use of solar panels, we are witnessing more problems with pigeons nesting under the panels. The solution is to fix mesh to the perimeter of the panels to prevent entry by birds. Access to the roof is a major issue, in order to protect our safety we always survey the premises before submitting our proposal. There are various alternative mesh products, we select the most suitable for the individual property.
Positive Environmental’s bird control service guarantees to rid you of your bird problem quickly and with the minimum of disruption. It includes a full clean and disinfection of affected areas using biocides and insecticides where necessary to remove the health hazards associated with bird guano. Once the area is clear, we can tailor the installation of a bird repellent system to deter bird flocks returning to your property. Bird repellents include pigeon spikes, bird wire and bird netting.
All birds in the UK are protected by law. Positive Environmental obtains all authorisations and licences needed to comply with the law before commencing any bird control activity on your property.

Pigeon Pest Control - Case Study
Positive Pest Control are particularly skilled at resolving difficult pest control problems.
The upper parts of Hereford Cathedral main tower had become home to a considerable number of pigeons through deterioration of window guards.
Right the picture shows a wooden frame around the window with chicken mesh which has become breached over time allowing pigeons in.
Where the pigeon problem need to be resolved was in a very challenging location reached via a long spiral stone staircase (150 steps!).
The working area was a narrow void between the outer and inner walls, no more than 2/3rds of a metre wide.
Work methods had to be carefully planned to: -
- Minimise the number of trips up and down the stairs with the bagged waste
- Minimise noise in the cathedral
- Ensure the health & safety of the Technicians in this difficult working area
The end result: -
- The problem windows fixed
- Pigeons unable to gain access
- All the droppings cleared up
Leaving the Cathedral in great shape for future generations.
