Signs of a bird infestation

Your premises can make an ideal habitat for pest birds as it provides them with shelter, food, water and a place to roost on. And once they turn your property into their home, it will be quite a challenge to remove and stop them from coming back. For example, pigeons are gregarious creatures living in flocks of anywhere between 50–500 birds, so a few pigeons here and there will have the potential to turn into a large uncontrollable infestation.

FACT: Birds, like many other animals, are drawn to the odour of their own waste, which encourage their return.

Common bird infestation signs

Recognising the signs of bird infestation and getting an immediate solution can drastically reduce the length of time needed to effectively control pest birds. Here is a list of warning signs indicating that it’s time to get professional help:
  • Birds settling on roofs or ledges.
  • Bird noises — continuous bird cries, especially from young chicks.
  • Bird nests — nesting materials strewn about your premises.
  • Damaged stock — from pecking and bird fouling.
  • Droppings — concentrated in areas where birds roost.
  • Debris from nests and feathers — may block guttering and drainage systems, potentially leading to damp damage.

Where to look for bird problems 

  • Pigeons prefer to nest on tall buildings, roof voids and slope.
  • Balconies, ledges and pipes on the exterior and interior walls are among their favourite roosting areas.
  • Any gap larger than 25mm that allows access into your building is a potential entry point for pigeons.

Don’t let pest birds damage your business reputation and property!
