FAST, EFFECTIVE and HUMANE BIRD CONTROL

Are pigeons and other birds causing you a problem? We use the latest bird proofing and bird control techniques to ensure any bird issues you have are sorted quickly and efficiently.

Based in Hillingdon, we are a mobile pest control business working across Hillingdon borough, South Bucks district, Three Rivers district and the surrounding areas.

For fast and efficient removal of pigeons and other birds from your home or business premises. We can also help prevent further problems.

Bird Control Methods

Our approach to bird control and pigeon control is systematic. Firstly we survey the extent of the bird control problem, which guides us to the most effective method of action.

Choosing the correct system of bird management will eradicate the chance of embarrassing and expensive failures. Each system is only effective against certain species of bird and offer different solutions to withstand the pressure that the bird will exert in trying to get back onto the proofed areas.

Bird mesh, bird netting, bird spikes and bird wire are used to prevent the birds from roosting, without harming the birds.

We use all sizes of nets that are discreet, taut wires or blunt spikes which can be put on buildings to keep them off. Alternatively, stupefying materials may be used or cage traps can be set to catch pest birds, which are then humanely destroyed.

This video shows a property we were called to in the South Bucks District, where the spiking installed by another company had failed, allowing pigeons to roost and defecate directly above the staff entrance of the building. This is what can happen when bird proofing is not carried out or installed correctly.

Bird Fouling Removal

We are specialists in bird fouling removal and facade cleaning. At best unsightly, unhygienic and annoying, bird fouling can also be hazardous and needs to be dealt with by properly trained and qualified pest control operatives.

Birds can be a huge problem when they find their way into a building looking for food, or simply looking to roost and be sheltered. This can cause an undesirable effect visually and in terms of health. Droppings are not only unsightly; they can cause long term damage. Fresh droppings, whilst unpleasant, pose no risk to health. It is dried droppings that can potentially spread infection.

Spores from the droppings can be inhaled as dust and carried on the wind. They can cause flu like illness in healthy people, but pose more serious problems to those with low immunity.

Check out the video below, to a job we were called too in the South Bucks District where the previously installed spiking installed by another company had failed and was allowing the pigeons to roost and defecate directly above the staff entrance of the building. This is what can happen when bird proofing is not carried out or installed correctly.

Problems with Birds

  • Risk of infection
  • Damage to property
  • Additional insect pests can lead to bites and textiles damage
  • Bird droppings also increase the risk of people slipping and falling.

Signs of A Bird Infestation

  • Bird droppings
  • Nests
  • High levels of insect infestation
  • Associated insect pests such as fleas and flies
  • Bad smells

Feral Pigeons (Columba Livia)

Pigeons are descendants of the Rock Dove. They are comfortable living in an urban environment. They tend to scavenge for food, often in substantial numbers where a good food supply is readily available – hence the need for pigeon controls.

If the conditions are right pigeons are able to breed all year round. They carry and can mechanically transfer to humans diseases such as salmonella. Pigeons have also been known to carry diseases such as Chiamdiosis, a virus similar to influenza, and Psittacosis, similar to pneumonia.

Wherever pigeons establish themselves they accumulate droppings and nesting materials.

Pigeon fouling makes buildings look dirty and shabby, and causes corrosion of mortar and masonry. In wet weather especially, droppings make pavements dangerously slippy, which can cause injuries to staff, customers and the general public.

The presence of pigeons poses a very real threat to the people living or working in an area. Pigeons not only introduce a variety of flies, textile pests and parasites, which cause damage and distress, they can also carry bacteria and viruses, which can be transmitted to humans.

The three most common methods of bird control for pigeons are anti-perching systems. These include netting, the spring and wire system and spikes.

A programme of bird proofing or pigeon proofing work can significantly reduce the high cost of cleaning and redecoration minimising the health and safety risk for you and your customers.

Don’t let a bird infestation ruin your hard earned business reputation.

We contacted Gerry The Wasp Man because we thought we had a wasps nest in our tree. Gerry was able to visit the same day which was a boon, otherwise we would've had to wait for 5 days for a visit from the local council. In the end, it turned out it we had honeybees. (Wasps don’t swarm). Instead of charging us for a call out fee, Gerry contacted a local beekeeper to come and take away the bees, which he was able to do safely within the hour. He also gifted us a delicious pot of honey. It was a wonderful outcome for us all- especially for the honeybees. Gerry was kind and generous with his time. I highly recommend him. Gerry The Wasp Man is your man, even if he isn’t your man!

Gerry was able to pop round a few hours after I called. He was on time, very professional and explained everything he was doing. Time will ultimately tell if the treatment he has administered works and I'll update the review as necessary but so far so good and would recommend. Update: its been over a month and no sign of any pests. Gerry rang to follow up and thankfully no more treatments are needed

Gerry was busy unfortunately, but very kindly forwarded me a name/number of a rival business to sort out my pigeons in roof eaves issue. The guy came within the hour as he’d had a cancellation and said we were very fortunate the pigeons hadn’t built their nest. He resolved the pigeons issue (with a wire mesh to cover the hole) and was done within the hour. Thanks to Gerry for recommending!! Hard to find good, honest, reliable tradesmen in this day and age.

Gerry came round very quickly and got straight into the loft to eradicate a rather large wasp nest. Very professional and very polite. He took all the mess ie wasp nest with him and assured my girlfriend that the problem was well and truly over after she was fretting and hiding behind closed doors! As Gerry said, I hope to not see you again but if we have any pest issues he is who we will definitely be using and recommending again. Top quality.

A brilliant job done by a friendly and professional guy. We had a wasps next at my mother in laws house in Hounslow. I called Gerry on a Saturday while I was down visiting and he fit me in for a Sunday removal - I was not expecting such a speedy service!

I cannot thank Gerry enough. He is the go to man for any pests. I have had Terrible wasp experiences in the past so for someone to keep you calm during treating them goes a long way.. This time round, there was luckily no nest but Gerry did a full inspection keeping our safety paramount. He fitted a visit in around my busy day too! To top it off, when I asked him how much I owed him, he didn't charge! I insisted many times but Gerry was happy to inspect for free. A genuine tradesman. Good sense of humour too :-).
