Bird Proofing Bournemouth

Bird Proofing Bournemouth


Bournemouth’s coastal charm attracts not just tourists, but also feathered residents – flocks of seagulls and pigeons that, while lovely from afar, can become a real nuisance up close. They create unpleasant noise and their droppings cause damage and spread disease, impacting businesses. At Urban Pest Control, we understand better than most the challenges these birds pose. That’s why we provide comprehensive bird proofing solutions to commercial clients across Bournemouth, Poole, Wimborne, Ferndown and the surrounding areas. With our range of expert bird control services, we ensure a safe and bird-free environment for your business premises.

The Advantages of Bird Proofing Your Property

  • Prevent costly damage: Bird droppings are acidic and can corrode roofs, gutters, and even paintwork. Their nesting habits may also block vents and damage insulation, leading to further complications.
  • Protect your health: Bird fouling harbours harmful bacteria and parasites, posing health risks to humans and pets.
  • Maintain kerb appeal: Guano, feathers, and nesting materials make your property unsightly and unhygienic.
  • Enjoy peace and quiet: The constant screeching and squawking of birds can be disruptive, especially for businesses and restaurants.

Seagull Control and Nest Removal

Bird Proofing Bournemouth

Seagulls are notorious for causing havoc, especially in coastal areas like Bournemouth. Their persistent nesting and aggressive behaviour can pose a significant risk to buildings and the safety of people in the vicinity. Urban Pest Control offers expert seagull control services, including safe and effective nest removal. Our trained professionals will assess the situation, identify nesting sites, and implement humane methods to prevent seagulls from returning.

Seagull Control UK Regulations

It’s important to note that seagulls are safeguarded under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, and they feature on the Conservation red list. Consequently, it is unlawful to harm or kill seagulls or to disturb and destroy active nests. Engaging in such actions can result in substantial fines and/or imprisonment. Natural England, the advisory body of the UK government, grants licences to qualified pest controllers, such as Urban Pest Control, empowering them to oversee bird control within designated regions. As these licences are tailored to specific sites, our team will work with you to secure licences for the removal of seagull nests. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your gull control needs in more detail.

Pigeon Spikes and Bird Netting

Pigeons are another common bird problem, particularly in urban areas. Their nesting and roosting habits can lead to structural damage, as well as health and sanitation issues due to their droppings. To deter pigeons from perching on your property, Urban Pest Control provides effective pigeon spikes and bird netting solutions. These preventative measures create physical barriers, ensuring that pigeons are unable to land or nest on your roofs, ledges, or other surfaces.

Falconry Pest Control: Nature’s Way

At Urban Pest Control, we believe in using environmentally friendly solutions wherever possible. That’s why we offer falconry pest control services as a natural and sustainable method to deter birds from your property. Our skilled falconers and their trained birds of prey create a presence that naturally discourages birds from roosting or nesting in your area. This approach not only effectively scares away the birds but also promotes a harmonious balance with nature.

Removal of Bird Droppings: Health and Hygiene

Bird droppings (also known as bird guano) not only deface and stain buildings but also pose potential health risks. The acidic nature of bird fouling can corrode surfaces, damaging walls, roofs, and vehicles. More importantly, bird droppings can contain various pathogens and parasites that can be harmful when inhaled or come into contact with skin. Urban Pest Control offers professional bird droppings removal services, ensuring the thorough and safe cleaning of affected areas to eliminate health hazards and restore cleanliness.

Drone Inspections

We can also offer cutting-edge drone pest inspection surveys tailored for commercial properties. These innovative surveys are particularly useful for bird control as they utilise drones to quickly and accurately assess pest issues in difficult-to-reach areas such as rooftops, high-rise buildings, and large outdoor spaces. This method not only improves safety but also saves time, money and minimises disruption to your business. With Urban Pest Control’s drone inspection services, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your business is protected by the latest in pest control technology.
