Bird netting systems screen off problem areas and can be 100% successful when installed correctly. The 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 are a tried and trusted method of bird proofing. They can be used on ledges, ridges, and other structures. They prevent birds from gaining a foothold.
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.
Gel systems are another physical barrier 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 then from perching.
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.
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.
