Bird control

The installation and maintenance of effective bird control measures is vital for any business subject to the nuisance of urban birds roosting or congregating together on its buildings. The upkeep of your building’s bird proofing is essential.

Are you getting these issues from an overpopulation of birds?

As well as protecting customers, staff and the general public from mess, noise and the risk of attack and disease, humane bird deterrents protect building facades from damage and keep rooftop gutters, drains and ventilation flues free from blockage of nesting material and feathers.

Since STQ Vantage already works at height, installing, inspecting and maintaining fall arrest protection equipment, we also offer businesses a comprehensive installation services for bird proofing, including:

Does bird netting work?

Protecting your building from being accessed by a wide range of bird species, bird netting provides a highly effective deterrent. It can be used vertically or horizontally, for small and very large areas, and is virtually invisible from more than a few metres away.

How do electrical bird deterrents work?

Imparting a harmless electrostatic pulse when landed upon, electric bird deterrents are a highly effective means of conditioning birds to avoid an area. Suitable for protecting virtually any kind of flat or curved surface, these dual electric tracks are flexible, very low profile and the ultimate psychological barrier.

When are bird spikes used?
These blunt, upward pointing stainless steel or plastic prongs come in a variety of designs and lengths to cope with different bird species and building types. A humane physical barrier to birds, the spikes can be applied to almost any kind of facade or roof surface, and are usually found on narrower ledges.

 

When are bird wires preferred?

Used to deter larger birds from business rooftops, bird wire installations are often preferred by architects and building managers for their barely visible appearance. Comprising steel springs and wires pulled between fixed brackets, bird wires are a cost effective and extremely versatile deterrent.
