What can be initially home to a couple of birds can soon become a resting ground for what can seem like an army of nuisances. If you have been worrying how to get rid of pigeons from your property, contact Able Group today for advice on how our bird control services can help you today.

Bird control treatment
When dealing with a bird infestation, the course of treatment we will use depending on your circumstances and needs. All of our methods involved aim at preventing the birds from landing on a specific area, such as a roof or a building ledge.

If you have discovered a bird infestation in your property, our bird pest control experts can be there to provide expert bird removal solutions and advice, so you have one less thing to worry about. The only things we cannot treat with birds is if they have laid eggs in their nest or if there are live young inhabiting the nest.
Bird spikes
One of the most effective forms of bird deterrent are bird spikes. Rather than harm the bird, these spikes simply stop them from landing in a specific area. The birds will no longer be able to perch on their favoured site and will instead have to move on elsewhere.
Bird netting
Bird nets, of 50mm for pigeons, can be installed to prevent the birds from reaching the infested area completely. It can also be used to prevent crops from being damaged by pigeons and wild birds, so has many functions.
Gel pads
These are non-harmful and non-poisonous to the birds but work just as well in keeping birds from your roof. It induces a burning sensation onto the birds feet that prevent the pigeons from staying on your roof property for any considerable length of time.

Advice on dealing with birds infesting your home

Firstly, it is important to identify the type of bird that is infesting your home. This is important as some birds are protected by law. Sparrows, starlings or pigeons are not protected by law, and are generally the most common birds found in the UK. Our pest experts have a wealth of knowledge to draw upon and can identify your problem and walk you through the next steps in solving your infestation.

Once the bird has been identified we can check for nests outside your property in trees, in gaps of your roof or even in your eaves. Birds often inhabit a home to build their nests and lay eggs. Once you have identified a bird's nest, you can confirm a bird infestation. It must be noted that should there be eggs in the nest or live young, we cannot treat the problem.

While there are some things you can't change, birds will often be attracted to a home if it has an accessible water and food source. If you have a bird bath or bird feed outside, removing them may make it more difficult for birds to make a home in your garden. This is one of the first steps you can take to get a bird out of the house or to keep pigeons away.

What birds can do to your property
Bird nests
You may have noticed there are a few more birds than normal on your property. They may just be stopping by, or you may have birds nesting in your roof. Once birds have found a place to inhabit, they will often build a nest in your home. Another common sign of a bird infestation is droppings on your property or pathway, this can be dangerous if left, as it is how diseases are spread.
Bird debris
Debris from birds' nests or feathers can potentially block drainage systems and guttering. Bird fouling can also lead to damage on your property, and can be a concern as they spread disease. This can normally be seen in areas around where the birds roost.
Number of birds
If you have noticed a large number of birds flocking together outside your home, this could be a sign that you have an infestation. This can often be very noisy, as these large flocks can get into your attic and use your home to set up a nest for laying their eggs. This brings in damage to your property and potential blockages to drains and guttering also.
Property damage
Birds have been known to damage roofs by tearing a hole or widening the cracks in any joints, corners and eaves. If you suspect you have an infestation, it is a good idea to be watchful of your property and if possible, inspect your eaves and roof tiles. Our professionals can help you to identify and stop a bird infestation, no matter how severe it may be.
