We now deal with a lot of commercial properties to keep the local bird population away from site. Bird droppings can be an unsightly and a destructive menace, on cars, windows and pavements. Birds’ nests can clog vents and drains. Plus seagulls will pull bins apart, causing more headaches for your business or tenants with a higher risk of rodent infestations. Our trained birds are environmentally sound and a permanent solution.
Greedy seagulls are the biggest menace to school children at break time, but when classes are called in the gulls then cause more headaches when they pull the bins apart. More and more schools are seeking the help of our birds of prey, who will keep the unwanted visitors away from the area. All our trained staff are fully compliant, hold Basic Disclosure Certificates and can visit at a time suitable for you. The birds also add some educational value to a school day.
Falconry at airports have a long established partnership. Working birds around the site has a huge safety benefit and can only prove that this type of pest prevention really does work. Not that all companies have an airfield they need kept clear, but the same principles apply to all expanses of areas. We now work with builders who want to temporarily discourage nesting birds, so the nests are not disturb whilst building.
Our Falconers have been working with and training birds for over 19 years. We only introduce new birds from responsible sources, keeping them ringed and registered. We fly them daily which keeps them agile and in top condition throughout their working months, then rotate the birds so they can moult naturally and breed as they need to. Our Falconers also work within the industry to advise on best practises and improve standards across the UK.
Using birds of prey as a pest control treatment is a very effective medium to long term solution. We will never tell you that one or two visits will sort the problem. In an ideal world we will view the site to assess its suitability and if there is anything harmful for the birds close by. Whether the area is unsuitable for Falconry work or not we will advise you of other measures you could consider for your pest problem. We will then discuss the options available and the number of visits required. The Falconer will usually need to visit every day for 8 – 15 days, typically for a 2 hour visit. The visits can then be reduced to once a week then once a fortnight, in order to deter the problem birds from returning. Our initial site investigation service is a FREE service and we will happily give you additional advice on other preventative measures available
