1. Assessments and Cleaning
A clear and professional bird management plan should begin with assessing the environment to find out where openings and ideal nesting spaces are located. Once this is complete, it is essential to start removing nests from these areas. The most humane way to remove bird nests is to identify your local nesting season and begin removing nests before that period.
2. Environmental Management
It is crucial to remove attractive aspects to birds to prevent having a recurring problem. The most common element is food; birds are attracted to environments with food availability—providing bins in public areas and banning the feeding of birds in and outside your domain. Sites that are prone to food litter or food spills should be managed effectively regularly.
3. Choosing a Bird Control Tool
Choosing a bird control tool can be tricky, but two recommended tools have proven to work effectively in industrial and commercial environments:
• Acoustic (bio-acoustic) bird control systems emit alarms, distress calls, and birds of prey calls to create a danger zone for birds. This technique is very cost-effective and can be placed easily in pest bird high-risk areas.
• The AVIX Autonomic laser bird deterrent manufactured by Bird Control Group has shown effective results in reducing birds in the commercial and industrial sectors. The system emits a green laser beam that moves along a pre-programmed area specific to the application. The laser beam’s moving projection is perceived as a physical threat by birds and they are immediately spooked from the site. The laser bird deterrent is a silent, automated system and does not require any significant maintenance.
