Are you having issues with gulls or feral pigeons in Fife?

Elysium Pest Control have been dealing with gull and feral pigeon issues for over 20 years throughout Fife. There are many ways to prevent gulls or feral pigeons from nesting.

How We Deal with Your Gull and Feral Pigeon issues

Typically issues tend to involve the lesser black-backed gulls and herring gulls, which can become particularly aggressive during their nesting season and when rearing young.

In many cases the problems can be avoided or kept to tolerable levels by taking preventative measures such as installing netting or wire over vulnerable roosting areas, keeping food storage and waste facility areas secure and discouraging deliberate feeding of birds by the public.

Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels

Pigeons nesting under solar panels is an increasing problem.  The solution is to fit a metal ‘cage’ around the solar panels and to run bird wire along the length of the gutter.

Bird Proofing is not straightforward and if it is to be both effective and inconspicuous it should be fitted by trained technicians. All too often we see ugly bird spikes glued to the ledges of buildings in Fife, which not only turn it into an eyesore, but often don’t do the job they were intended to.

Bird proofing mesh around solar panels – such measures can be vital to ensure the source of renewable energy is not adversely affected by pest birds. That is why it is important to select the right bird proofing installation specialist from the word go. A company that knows what it is doing. Will recommend first time fixes, not an approach that allows them to return again and again to earn more money. Also, one that will do the job safely and efficiently.

Carrying out bird proofing can be expensive, and will result in additional costs if it is not done properly. Risks associated with the process can result in even more serious consequences if the process goes wrong. Selecting the right bird pest controllers is the critical first step to having the peace of mind that the bird pest problem will be solved quickly and cost-effectively. With minimal fuss.
