Solid Avian Solutions – FAQs
Bird droppings can build up when pest birds establish a routine nesting or roosting area. Bird droppings can pose a danger because they can carry diseases that can spread to humans if disturbed. Fecal spores can be airborne if bird droppings are disturbed in dry conditions. This is particularly true if bird activity occurs near buildings ventilation systems.
Bird droppings can cause health problems and water contamination.
Bird droppings can cause rusting and staining on certain surfaces due to their high acidity. Bird droppings can cause damage to buildings and vehicles, particularly historic ones.
Nesting materials are another concern when there is a problem. If nest materials are allowed to collect, they can be a fire hazard. The weight and pressure of the bird nesting can make it possible for the nesting or bird droppings to shorten electrical outlets. Bird mites or other parasites can be found in bird nesting. It is important to ensure that any nesting material is removed, and that the area is cleaned after pest birds have been expelled or deterred from a structure. Clogged drains can lead to standing water, and other problems. If there are many birds, bird droppings or nesting materials in the vicinity of customers, it can impact negatively on a brand's image. Particularly public walkways, canopies, and facade signage.
When you are looking at a bird control program, there are three main types.
Bird Exclusion is the first method of bird control. This involves installing products or architectural modifications to exclude pest birds from certain areas. Bird Exclusion products include:
Bird Deterrent is the next method of controlling birds. It involves installing products that deter birds from landing in treated areas. These products are called Bird Deterrent.
The last method of bird control is a general type of Bird Control. This involves using various methods to remove birds from specific areas. General Bird Control is:
The level of bird pressure at the site will determine which bird control method is best. The more exclusion-based methods should be used, the higher the bird pressure. Deterrent-based products that can deter birds from treated areas are more effective if the bird pressure is lower. If the birds must be removed within a certain time frame, then trapping or targeting methods of bird control should be employed.

Bird deterrents can be used as an alternative to installing bird netting.
You have many options to deter birds from landing in treated areas. Bird spikes are the primary bird deterrent.
Bird spikes can be used to prevent birds from roosting by making it difficult for them to land on a ledge, and then closing their wings when they land. Birds will be discouraged from areas that have been treated by making it more difficult to land on ledges and decreasing the area of landing. Bird spikes are made up of thin rods attached to a base. There are many sizes available depending on the surface area. Bird spikes can attach to almost any surface. Bird spikes can be attached to parapet walls, parapet walls and pipes.
Bird spikes are designed to deter pigeons. Bird spikes do not work against sparrows or starlings. Bird spikes will be used by smaller birds to keep their nesting materials inside the rods.
Tension wire bird deterrents are effective if the visual impact of the bird control systems is important. Tension wire is a small post, usually mounted in a mortar line. A monofilament line is then attached between the posts. Multiple rows may be necessary depending on the depth of the ledge and surface area. Tension wire, like bird spikes and bird spikes is effective only to deter larger birds.
All bird deterrents are effective in keeping birds away from the areas they are used. Some deterrent options may be more effective than others depending on the area, type of structure and historical value. Electrified shock track is another option for bird deterrent. This is suitable for projects with minimal visual impact. The shock track is a thin, low-profile strip that's mounted to parapet walls or ledges to discourage birds from landing on the treated areas. The units can be either 110- or solar-powered.
