Pigeon droppings and other bird dropping could cause a serious health risk and these pests are lethal at spreading diseases. As a result, its important to employ pest control services in London if you feel you need help removing pigeons or other birds from your property.

Bird Free ‘Fire Gel’

We have been using Bird Free Fire Gel with great success in deterring birds from nesting and roosting on our clients buildings across London including in air conditioning units at offices, on solar panels and even some of the Royal Households. The gel, which is completely harmless makes use of the fact that birds vision allows them to see ultra-violet light and so the gel appears to them as fire. Dubbed in the press as ‘fire gel’ it was introduced into the UK four years ago and is being used as an effective, yet unobtrusive, bird control method: well-known installations sites include Covent Garden Market, Paddington Station in London and St Andrew’s University in Scotland, where it is successfully keeping the gulls away.

Pigeon Netting

Installation of pigeon or bird netting to prevent birds and feral pigeons from accessing important areas such as plant and pipe work. This could also prevent bird nests from appearing, preventing infestations.

Anti Perch Systems

Installation of anti perch spikes and post and wire systems to prevent birds from roosting on fascias, window caps and other common areas favoured by pest birds. This could include bird spikes or pigeon spikes which could aid with feral pigeon and seagull control.

Controlled Shoots

After a thorough risk assessment has been completed and it is deemed safe to do so, a controlled shoot would be carried out at dawn or dusk when pest birds generally return to their nesting areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Shield Pest Control, we are committed to both effectively managing bird pests and upholding ethical standards that prioritise wildlife welfare and adhere to specific regulations. Here’s how we ensure our bird pest control methods are humane and compliant:

  • Legal Compliance: We strictly adhere to local, national, and international wildlife regulations, including those set forth by organisations like the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) and Natural England. Our methods are designed to be compliant with these regulations.
  • Non-Lethal Approaches: Whenever possible, we employ non-lethal bird control methods. These include the installation of bird deterrents like netting, spikes, and visual deterrents, which prevent birds from roosting or nesting without causing harm.
  • Live Capture and Release: In cases where live capture is necessary, we use humane trapping methods designed to minimise stress and harm to the birds. Once captured, they are released in a suitable, non-disruptive location.
  • Consultation with Experts: For more complex bird management issues, we consult with ornithologists and other wildlife experts. This ensures that our strategies are not only effective but also align with best practices in bird conservation.
  • Monitoring and Review: After implementing bird pest control measures, we continuously monitor their effectiveness. If necessary, we adjust our methods to maintain bird welfare and compliance with regulations.
