Bird Control Services in the South East
Controlling and prevention of building damage by pigeons and gulls
Pigeons and gulls can often be a problem in busy urban environments such as towns, city centres, schools, construction sites and transport hubs. Their presence bring noise issues as well as health risks with their unsightly droppings potentially spreading diseases such as E.Coli and Salmonella. The damage caused by these birds to buildings, vehicles and walkways can run into thousands of pounds every year. With the current government legislation making it illegal to kill or injure any wild bird, SkyHawk Pest Management offers a natural, sustainable and discreet form of nuisance bird removal.
Our experienced hawking team will implement a long-term solution to your pigeon problem by flying a specially trained bird of prey around the affected area. This frightens other birds away and, with repeated sessions, ultimately changes their roosting and nesting behaviour as they will believe the hawk has set up its territory there.
We provide bird controlling services for customers across the southeast including:
Hawking is a natural and effective deterrent that deters pest species from roosting or nesting in a particular area.
The first stage to hawking is a site visit, during which we will assess the problem looking at the cause of the problem, severity, species involved, most effective methods of control and visit frequency/duration.
Hawking works well in a natural and eco friendly manner as the hawk is not trained to kill pest species, the presence of the hawk changes the behaviour of the pest species. Gulls and pigeons will see the hawk regularly attending site and realise that it is no longer a favourable place to roost or nest and simply move on to a new territory/area.
How quickly this happens will vary depending on the severity and cause of the problem. Taking factors such as roosting areas, feeding and nesting sites in to account we will work to minimise the attractiveness of the site and reinforce the behavioural change with the regular presence of a predator.
