Whether you have a one-off residential problem or are suffering an ongoing issue at your commercial premises, we can implement bird proofing solutions for your property, safely and effectively.

Abate Pest Management Services are bird control experts, providing effective solutions for a range of industries such as retail, warehousing and distribution, construction, facilities management and commercial property management.

From lasers to spikes and netting, we have a range of products and services that we can use to help deter birds from landing and making their nests on your property.

All the staff who are assigned to bird proofing projects are IPAF trained, for working at heights and for operating power access equipment. They are also PASMA trained, for scaffold tower and AGR (Advanced Guard Rail) systems.




Bird pest control netting systems screen off problem areas and can be 100% successful when installed correctly. The bird control mesh netting comes in a variety of sizes to suit the breed of bird causing the problem and in a variety of colours to suit your building’s masonry.


Post-and-wire systems

Post-and-wire systems are a tried and trusted method of bird proofing. They can be used on ledges, ridges, and other structures and work by preventing birds from gaining a foothold.


Electrical deterrents

We also use Avishock which is an RSPB approved product that educates birds via a harmless electric shock – in the same way that electric fences manage cattle – to stop them landing and nesting on ledges, roofs, and other locations on your property. This system is particularly useful for Grade 1 and 2 listed buildings and other sites where more conventional bird control methods are not allowed.

Gel systems

Gel systems are a great deterrent to discourage birds from landing on your building. The gel is applied to ledges and ridges. To the birds the gel feels unpleasant and unstable, and this discourages them from perching.


Spike systems

Spike systems consist of strips of metal or plastic spikes that again provide a physical barrier preventing birds from landing. They are a cost-effective and adaptable solution that can be used on a wide range of buildings.



Lasers are the latest in bird proofing technology. At Abate, we use a fully automated laser bird repelling system. This state-of-the-art bird control solution uses birds’ natural instincts to harmlessly deter them from nesting or roosting. It works by projecting a moving laser beam across a rooftop. The birds see the beam as a threat and stay away from the building.
