Bird Control

In this country  we  love our wild birds and Killaverm is certainly no different.  However, if pigeons and gulls live in close proximity to humans, whether it is where we live or work, they can cause serious problems which need to be addressed.

Pigeons and Gulls are  intelligent creatures which like to nest on cliff faces and rocky crags.  In recent years the population of gulls and feral pigeons have increased in  urban areas.  This is due to our buildings closely resembling their natural habitat and an abundance of food from our own food waste.  Gulls like to nest in the same site year after year and with a continual food source, pigeons will breed throughout the year making these birds very hard to remove.

As well as their droppings (guano) creating a mess, the birds can carry a number of infectious diseases such as salmonella and tuberculosis and a long term build up of guano can cause corrosion to buildings.

If you have a bird problem that needs professional help, Killaverm has a bird control team that can resolve any issue you may  have.  We can remove droppings, install nets, spikes and wire mesh or as a more natural alternative, we can offer a falconry service to control pigeon populations.  Click here for further information.

Solar Panel Pigeon Proofing

Pigeon guano building up under panels will attract flies and their maggots and other crawling and  biting insects like fleas.  If guano builds up on photo voltaic cells this will reduce the panel’s efficiency.  In addition, feral pigeon will block your gutters and pipes with feathers, eggs and twigs.

Killaverm provides a complete solution preventing  pigeons from roosting underneath solar panels.   The photos below show previous work that we have carried out on solar panels.  Within a very short time the pigeons will realise that their roosting place is no longer available and will move on.  If you have a solar panel that requires pigeon proofing, please contact us for free advice and quotation.  Click here for a contact us form or call 07989 235182 or email office@killaverm.com
