Some bird species can cause varying degrees of problems when either roosting or nesting on your property. Their droppings can spread disease and cause damage to a number of surfaces, whilst some species of birds can be extremely disruptive in a number of ways. For example, their loud, noisy calls, their tendency to steal food, and in the case of gulls, their occasional aggressive behaviour towards people all lead to people seeking pest removal solutions.
If for some reason bird spikes, netting, and other forms of bird proofing are not suitable solutions, then consider using birds of prey. Here, Enviropest Control Services Ltd takes a look at how and why the method can be effective.



Birds of prey have put years of evolution to good use, making the most of their speed and flexibility to provide them with exceptional levels of manoeuvrability. These attributes allow birds such as the Harris Hawk to thrive in urban areas, where alternative bird proofing methods might not be viable. They also mean that birds of prey can work effectively indoors, making them a perfect bird deterrent in locations such as plane hangars.


Natural instinct

Just as our birds of prey have built up years of natural instinct, so have the birds you’re seeking to keep away. As a result, the presence of a bird of prey is almost certain to be enough to keep the animals out of a desired area. Once the birds have become aware of a predator’s presence, they will find alternative locations to roost or nest. By introducing the birds of prey through a series of “visits” to an area, the pest birds’ habits will change.
