Best bird-proofing solutions for your home

Prevention is better than cure when it comes to any type of pest problem. Birds issues can strike at any time, resulting in lots of queries surrounding the law on removing bird nests. One of the best ways to stop this type of concern is bird proofing. This can stop birds from becoming a nuisance on your roof or inside your loft, preventing noise issues, damage and unsanitary conditions.

Best Birdproofing Solutions For Your Home

Here are some of the best ways to bird-proof your home.

Bird wire

Bird wire is a great option for flat surfaces, creating a barrier that stops birds from being able to perch or roost on ledges, roofs and other spots on tall buildings. The wire is typically stretched between posts or fixtures at different heights, producing an unstable surface to discourages birds from landing. This is a humane solution and is virtually invisible, appealing to both homeowners and commercial businesses.

Bird netting

Another bird control solution is netting. Bird netting creates a physical barrier to prevent access to specific areas of your property or garden. It’s available in various sizes and densities to suit different applications. Whether you need to protect a fruit tree, outdoor dining area, roofing, balcony, sports ground, building front or car park, netting provides an effective and humane deterrent against feral birds.

Bird spikes

Bird spikes are another popular bird-proofing solution, deterring birds from settling on ledges, windowsills, signs,  ines and other surfaces. These pointed protrusions make it too uncomfortable for birds to land. Easy to install (no drilling required) and virtually maintenance-free, bird spikes are made from stainless steel and don’t cause birds any harm.

Pigeon meshing for solar panels

If you have solar panels installed on your roof, it can encourage bird problems, such as pigeons nesting underneath them. Pigeon meshing or solar panel bird netting, is a specialist product designed to prevent birds from accessing the space beneath solar panels. Made from durable materials such as stainless steel mesh, it creates a barrier to block access to the area beneath solar panels while continuing to allow good ventilation and maintenance.

Bird traps

In some cases, bird traps are necessary if there are persistent bird infestations at a property. Bird traps are humane devices designed to capture a large number of birds without causing harm, so they can be relocated safely away from your site. Always use a professional pest control company, as bird traps must be used responsibly and in accordance with regulations. This ensures the humane treatment of birds and prevents unintentional harm.
