Alongside our bird guano removal services, we offer a range of bird deterrent solutions that our work at height trained operatives can install at your convenience. Spikes, wires bird scarers and alike are designed to discourage birds from resting on your property and making a mess. We have bird proofing solutions to suit all property types, sizes and budgets detailed below:
Anti-bird spikes – Rigid spikes (stainless steel or plastic), at around eight inches high, stop birds from landing and roosting in popular bird guano problem areas. Whether installed on a chimney, gutter or statue, bird spikes are cost-effective, enduring, and unobtrusive. Along with metal coils, they are also approved by the RSPB for use against pigeons. Different anti-bird spikes are required to deter pigeons and gulls so please contact us for more information.
Post and wire bird proofing – Often preferred as a discreet solution, post and wire bird proofing is ideal for ornate and high-profile buildings. Spring-loaded stainless-steel wires fixed in place by posts on ledges, signs, beams, balustrades and handrails create a barrier for birds. Suitable for use on all types of brick, stone and concrete, once in place, post and wire bird proofing can be easily maintained and removed for building works. Different versions may be required to deter different types of birds so please contact us for more information.
Chimney bird proofing – As chimney pots are a popular place for gulls and pigeons to perch and nest, good chimney bird proofing should be your priority. As well as protecting yourself from further bird guano removal costs, having an avian adversary fall inside a chimney stack is a huge inconvenience. Whether it is spikes or a wire cowl, we will assess and install the best chimney bird proofing to suit your needs.
Solar panel bird proofing – Pigeons are known to nest under solar panels and, over time, bird guano removal becomes essential. To avoid damage to your solar panels, extra expense and health and safety implications, we can install wire mesh to cover the gap between the panels and roof. Boasting a fast and efficient team with cherry picker access to reach those awkward spots, you can count on our solar panel bird proofing service.
Bird scaring – There are a variety of bird scaring devices on the market but RJS Waste Management favours three. Mobile predator decoys that move in the wind, such as hawk kites, should be positioned high for the best results. Reflective light repellers also use the wind but they catch the light and deter birds with a glint. However, these only work during the day. While non-toxic bird repellent gel combines strong visual and olfactory effects to discourage birds from landing. These can be applied to most solid structures.
