Picture11-225x300Our Gardenbusters division has recently carried out large scale treeworks to remove dead and dying trees/tree limbs within a residential area of Bromsgrove, in order to make safe and protect the health and safety of residents, general public and nearby properties.

The work, which was completed over a one week period, was organised such that all felling/pruning was carried out on a Saturday, in order to minimise any health and safety risks to the general public.  All working areas were cordoned off for safety of the public, and ‘look-out’ ground staff were also put in place, to help prevent any unauthorised access to the working area.

A variety of trees were worked on, including a Scots Pine that was hanging over a public car park, which a ‘two man team’ brought down in sections.  A large dangerous limb was removed from a Beech tree and a Silver Birch was also pruned.  We were also requested to pollard a Lime tree which had been previously badly pruned. The debris from these trees was then removed over the following five days.

Dave2-300x225Pestbusters celebrated 10 years in business this month and Managing DirectorDave Nash organised a staff Team building day which was followed by a Go Karting event.

The team building involved exercises which were organised by Kevin Parr of the PGS Team Ltd, together with ex Royal Marine Rob Bull from Extreme Evolution.   After some initial trepidation everyone relaxed into the exercises and good team camaraderie was enjoyed by all.

The Go Karting  event was great fun and finished with a Winners Race which was hard fought but eventually won by our Pestbusters Service Supervisor Mike Nash, closely followed by Jason Harris from ourGardenbusters Tree Surgery Team.  Third place went to Pestbusters Service Technician Keith Colwell.

At the celebrations after the event Darren Brough our General Manager presented Dave with a caricature painting of himself with his dog Jimmy on behalf of all The Busters Team staff, in recognition not only of his own personal achievement, in building Pestbusters into the successful company that it is today, but also as a big ‘thank you’ for his care and commitment to the personal development of all his employees.

Pestbusters now look forward to another successful 10 years in business as it continues to expand along withGardenbusters,Hygienebusters & Total Bird Control.

DSCF0088-300x225In January we carried out a job to remove pigeon nests and eggs from under the eaves of the roof on a building in Solihull.  We then installed 9m x 4m of black pigeon netting to the roof using a mobile working platform in order to stop the pigeons from nesting and roosting in this area.

Are you buildings plagued by the presence of unwelcome birds such as pigeons? If so, there’s no need to worry. Here at Total Bird Control, we are able to provide easy and effective bird control methods to make sure that unwanted birds leave your premises pristine and undisturbed. By introducing our simple bird proofing London techniques, you’ll be able to relax in the knowledge that there won’t be any unexpected mess due to arrival of local birds.

Many building owners may be exposed to some form of bird-related troubles, and with so many negative implications associated with their arrival, it’s no wonder that some need to introduce solid methods to eradicate the problem.

The frequent arrival and departure of birds can begin to cause significant damage to the buildings themselves over time. Due to the acid which is contained within the droppings of pigeons and gulls, erosion may begin to develop, as well as car paintwork which may begin to become affected.

There are several different techniques which we are able to implement into your building to provide a successful deterrent to birds, which include;

•    Bird Capture
•    Wiring Systems
•    Scaring (with prey)
•    Bird Netting
•    Bird Spikes
•    Pigeon Control

Proofing methods such as spikes are a brilliant solution for stopping birds from landing on the building, due to the unpleasant surface which they create. We are able to advise you on the most appropriate spikes for your premises, as they are available in a number of different sizes and strengths. Post and wire provide similar results, as the tensioned wires provide an effective barrier to prevent birds from landing. If your building is experiencing an influx of seagulls, we are also able to offer humane trapping programs to reduce the problem.

If your building or premises is being affected by birds and you would like to do something about it, we can help. For expert advice on the most effective bird proofing London methods for your environment, contact one of our specialist team by completing our online contact form, for further information.

The arrival of birds can be an unwelcome presence within many environments. In commercial settings, particularly those who have direct interaction with customers, birds such as pigeons who choose to populate the area can provide an off-putting and unprofessional appearance for organisations looking to impress and draw in business. Luckily, our team at Total Bird Control are able to provide effective methods which can be put in place to stop birds from landing upon your premises. Through implementing our experience and knowledge, with the aid of deterrents such as bird spikes Bristol, you’ll be able to put an end to your bird related worries.

A flock of pigeon’s right outside a business may begin to repel potential customers, thus possibly reducing custom. This, along with the mess such birds make, presents a pesky and frustrating annoyance for the site owner.

We are able to install this simple and effective solution into your premises, preventing birds from landing and roosting. They can be either glued to the surface, or directly attached by using nails or screws.

The spikes which we are able to provide are available in a range of different strengths and sizes, to cater for varying sizes of birds. These can be chosen depending on the types of birds which you most regularly encounter problems with, to offer the most suitable and effective solution. If you are unsure of which type of system will benefit you most, then we are able to help by listening to your requirements, and using our knowledge and expertise within bird deterrent methods to suggest the most successful solutions.
