Feral bird solutions
Bird netting of different sizes can be fitted to nearly any structure preventing birds from entering. Ideal for light wells, entire elevations, balconies and pitched roofs etc. Bird wires are almost invisible, therefore ideal for window ledges and stonework where birds have yet to populate. Bird spikes are a much stronger way to deter persistant birds from perching on any kind of ledge and need no drilling to be fixed.
APC proposals include detailed specifications with photographs to ensure your complete understanding of what is proposed. We will work alongside you from the initial telephone call, site survey and project costing's, through to Health & Safety assessments until completion at no extra cost to you!

Why we need to control Feral Birds
- Bird fouling on stairs and pavements can cause slips and falls.
- Bird nests and droppings will provide a breeding ground for insects.
- Bird fouling can cause damage and stain brickwork due to the high level of acid content within their droppings.
Diseases associated with bird fouling
Is a 'flu-like' disease most commonly found in pigeon droppings. The bacteria live in the gut of infected birds and are passed out in the faeces and in eye and nasal secretions, the symptoms of this are more like common pneumonia.
Can be picked up by humans via the inhalation of faecal dust, or by contact with infected feathers, carcasses or birds nests. The disease organism becomes less infectious with time, therefore active roosts will present the greatest risk to humans. If diagnosed early enough the disease can be successfully treated with antibiotics. However, if allowed to develop, it can become serious, leading to hospitalisation and even death in certain cases.
Is present in most pest birds, but feature in a high percentage of feral Pigeons and also Starlings. Birds have been known to contaminate water sources so should be considered a health risk at food premises.
