Pigeon Netting & Spiking

Bird control in urban areas requires extensive knowledge of the biology and behaviours of the species.

Just one of our solutions for control is netting and spiking, it is effective in creating an environment where the birds will move on of their own accord.

Carrying out these works requires specialist equipment and a stringent adherence to health and safety, working at heights and dealing with hazardous substances and should only be carried out by our professional team.
