Bird Proofing

Love them or hate them, birds are an essential part of our natural environment. They maintain a balance, control insects and other pests, perform vital roles in the germination of many plants, and fill the countryside with their joyous songs. But sometimes a need arises for bird pest control.

Bird Free ‘Fire Gel’

We’ve been using Bird Free Fire Gel with great success in deterring birds from nesting and roosting on our clients’ buildings across London including 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 and Paddington Station in London, and St Andrew’s University in Scotland, where it is keeping the gulls away.
