The public is supportive of hawk flying for pigeon control, and our clients benefit from positive public relations by dealing with the problems caused by nuisance pigeons in a humand and responsible way.

Installing anti-pigeons nets, or anti-pigeon spikes will prevent pigeons being able to perch or roost on the structure.
The proofing solution installed may be complex and require several systems to achieve the best possible overall effect. Acting as your trusted partner, our surveyors are free to select any products or systems on the market, from any manufacturer, to achieve the desired effect as well as commissioning bespoke manufactured systems. We select the most suitable systems from the entire range available. All installations are completed by our own fully trained staff utilising the services of specialists where required.
Scaring systems, whether that is an audio or visual pigeon scaring system do not work very well for very long. Pigeons adapt very quickly to new things, so scaring systems will have very little long-term effect on a pigeon population.

- Damage to property or stock
- Blocked drains or gutters, especially if there are pigeon feathers and nesting materials
- Pigeon fouling / droppings at ground level
