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.
Provide a thorough cleaning programme – removing all nests, eggs, fouling, and other debris associated with birds
Installation of pigeon netting to prevent birds from accessing important areas such as plant and pipe work.
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.
If after a thorough risk assessment has been completed it is deemed safe to do so, a controlled shoot would be carried out at dawn or dusk when pests birds generally return to their nesting areas.
