Hazards and damage

  1. Nesting – Pest Birds will nest on the top of your building causing structural damage.
  2. Blockages – Nesting materials and other debris i.e., bones and guano will gather on the roof and may restrict the flow of rainwater away from rooftops and cause potential blockages and overspill into the buildings.
  3. Droppings – Build-ups of gull guano can lead to structural damage from the uric acid in the bird droppings and furthermore cause a foul smell.
  4. Diseases – Pigeons and Herring Gulls droppings will carry a host of serious diseases such as Cryptococcus, Toxoplasmosis, Salmonella, food poisoning just to name a few.
  5. Nuisance – The aggressive nature of gulls and Pigeons and the high noise levels that they emit may cause a nuisance for staff, customers, and the public serving as potential customers.

Population Control – Pigeons and Herring Gulls in Wicklow

Bird Proofing is specialist work. An experienced, fully licensed, and insured installer should be consulted for advice and proofing strategies.

Urban Pest Bird Control is a complex subject and requires an integrated approach which will include waste management regimes to minimise roosting and nesting sites and proofing strategies that will exclude Pest Birds from priority areas.


Benefits of our Wildlife Management Programme:

  • Cost – Prevention is better than cure. Not having bird management in place can cause structural damage to your property.
  • Health and Safety – Reduction in health and safety hazards that can be caused by droppings which are known for triggering human slips and falls, as well as damaging structures and statues.
  • Image – Maintain a good image and reputation with both current and future clients.
  • Noise – Less disruption due to their noise and aggressive nature of Herring Gulls and Pigeons.
