Washington DC Bird Control
Bird control in the state of Virginia is a problem that is growing in need. As homes and buildings essentially appear out of nowhere. The developers and home building companies are knocking down all the natural nesting areas birds have to nest in. Once the natural areas have been depleted, birds will nest wherever they can find acceptable structure. This type of area is unlimited when you look at structures that we build on a daily basis. Decks, soffits, vents, garage ceilings, cell phone towers, electrical substations, loading docks and many other industrial type structures make really good nesting locations for birds of all types.
Some of the types of birds that we specialize in include but are not limited to: House Sparrows, Pigeons, Seagulls, Grackles, Terns and Vultures.
We have solutions for any of these and would be more than happy to provide you with a free, no obligation quote to help you solve your problem. No matter the size of the project, we are the team to help!
Bird Netting in Washington DC
The installation of bird netting is one of the most common control tactics. It is used to exclude most types of birds. This method can be used under decks, in loading docks and all other areas that they are not welcome in. This is a very humane way of executing bird control. You are simply denying them access to a given area.
We have installed thousands and thousands of square feet of this netting. We have a 100% success rate with this type of barrier exclusion. Our methods are tried and true. Our installation is fast and effective and our warranties are backed by over 50 years of net installation experience.
Most nets come with a 10 year manufacturer warranty and we have nets that are still in service after being up for as long as 30 years. Some of the net that we put up back in 1993 is still up and looks as good as the day we installed it.
Invisible Bird Netting
Nylon bird nets and pigeon nets are available in a variety of different colours including black, ‘stone’ and translucent. A range of colours are offered for bird proofing applications in order that the net will blend in with the fabric of the building concerned. The product is barely visible from a vantage point of only a few metres if the product has been installed and maintained properly.
Bird Flex Track Installation
Bird Flex track is an electrical track that is designed to keep them from ledges, tips of buildings, ages of buildings, and any other place that a flat surface will allow them a roosting opportunity. Flex track works as a sort of an ele/ctric fence for birds. They simply land on the track, it gives them a slight electrical jolt which scares them. This quickly convinces them to fly off.
Most of them learn by a process called imprintation. This process teaches them where not to land. This will force the bird pressure on to other parts of the building or ultimately away from your building should you decide to install Flex track on the entire building.
We offer this type of solution to companies and homeowners all across the country. They are generally maintenance free. Occasionally we will have to make a return trip to install a new charger. This is normal as the chargers will only last between 3 and 5 years. As technology gets better, the chargers do too, but some type of maintenance plan should be expected with this type of solution.
Sea Gull Grid System Washington DC
The seagull grid system has been around for years; however, our company has taken the execution of this system to the next level. We are THE ONLY COMPANY IN THE WORLD TO INSTALL A 220,000 square foot grid system that worked!
We are the leaders in this type of bird control technology and we have completely revolutionized the thought process about these grid wire systems. We can install these types of systems on buildings, rooftops, or basically anywhere that is a flat area. These type systems are very unique and you should contact one of our specialists to make sure a grid system is right for you.
Grid systems are not a prescribed product in high traffic areas, as they can be very obstructive to get around on. If you have a spot, such as a rooftop, that does not get much foot traffic beside maintenance, this could be the solution you are looking for.
Birds In Vents
Birds in vents is a major problem that occurs mostly in the spring and early summer in most of the country. This directly coincides with the mating season of the most problematic bird in the United States, the European starling!
European Starlings were first introduced in the United States in 1890 in New York city by a man named Eugene Schieffelin. He was the president of the American Acclamation Society. In an attempt to have every bird mentioned in the writings of William Shakespeare in the United States. Little did he know that he was releasing one of the most destructive birds ever to hit the US soil, doing an estimated 40 billion dollars a year in damage to personal property and industrial equipment. Thanks to the efforts of this one guy, we have a very invasive species that will never be eradicated.
For the very same reason that they will get into soffit, attics and other man-made structures the sole purpose for the bird is to find a sufficient, safe, nesting area in which it can reproduce and hatch its offspring. This is the only reason you will ever have one in the vent of your home.
Birds In Soffits
They will also inhabit the soffit area of a home or building. This is a very common call in the spring/early summer; just like the bird in the vent calls. When in the soffit area of a structure, it is associated with the reproductive activities of either house sparrows or european starlings. These pests will continue to use the same nesting locations year after year. If you do not take care of the problem, it will continue to reoccur. We can fix this for you. This includes but not limited to metal flashing, screening, netting or some other type of exclusion material to keep Them from entering a given area.
