Pest Bird Deterrents

Acoustic deterrents

Speaker systems – There are alot of different systems out there, bbut they all work with the same principal. These generate alarm calls of the pest bird species being controlled or the sound of a predator relevant to the pest bird species. These need to be used in conjunction with other methods if an establish population of birds already exists. They should not be used in built up areas as they are quite loud and likely to cause conflicts with people living in the area. Click here for more information on this service.



Active Deterrents

Birds of prey - trained to work in urban and rural areas, can see reductions of 95 to 100% over time, This is one of the services where the deterrent becomes more effective the more it is used. Unlike other deterrents which seem to lose their effectiveness over time, using real birds of prey don't. Click here For more information on this service.


laser - These are specially designed to scare birds, There are two types, the hand held and a standalone version. The standalone is programmed to cover an area and can be left to work 24-7 365 days a year. Works well in established problem areas on flocking types of birds such as pigeons, gulls and geese. Click here for more information on this service.


Bird scaring Kites and balls - These need to be mounted and used above the area the pest birds are using, larger areas will need more than one, they work quite well in low to moderate pressure areas. They need to be installed correctly so as not to tangle themselves up,and kept out of areas with strong winds as they often break away and disappear. These should not be used in breeding areas for gulls as they attack them, becoming entangled or break them.                                     



Static Deterrents – There are a few types of these such as statues of peregrines for pigeons and gulls and coyotes for geese, they have a limited time effect, depending on the size and species of bird be deterred. They need to be moved to new locations to keep up the effect, they are best used in conjunction with other methods.




Optical repellents – This is quite a new technology and comes in the form of a gel or liquid,  the chemical base treatment does not cause any harm to the birds, the gel or liqued emits an invisable light to the humans that looks like it is a flame visible to birds. Liquid is used on large surface areas, and gels to be used on ledges.

BIRD SHOCK TRACK – Works like an electric fence for cattle, the birds learn that landing in that area causes discomfort and find new roosting spots. Is very low profile and nearly if not impossible to see from ground level.
