Bird control

Bird Control

Birds can become a nuisance because of noise and pollution. Due to the height they nest, reaching them can be difficult. Copley Pest Solutions offers different methods in dealing with nuisance birds in an effective & humane manner.

Legal aspects to consider

Some species are protected in the UK by the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981. Therefore, identifying the species is crucial. Licensing requirements will change throughout the UK. Non-lethal displacement methods must be incorporated first. If unsuccessful, then lethal direct control may be necessary, and depending on the species and your location; this procedure may be carried out under a general licence or require a class licence.

Non-lethal Bird dispersal:

  1. Falconry: using trained birds of Prey (Falcon) to scare away or capture nuisance birds by flying over an area. The presence of the Falcon can deter pests, making the area unsuitable for nesting or feeding. These nuisance birds have no other alternative other than to relocate elsewhere. The frequency and duration this method requires will depend on the species of nuisance birds. 
  2. Kites
  3. Bioacoustics
  4. Mock human presence e.g. scarecrow.

Lethal Bird dispersal:

  1. Bird cull

The permanent solution of bird control is bird proofing with fixed installation systems. These systems can be installed in a variety of settings, and available in a range of sizes.
