If you have problems with large groups of pigeons or gulls nesting on your property you might think that there’s nothing that can be done. Birds are after all able to fly out of reach when threatened and are so commonplace in urban areas that it’s tempting to simply ignore them. Unfortunately this can lead to various problems in the future, such as the poor health of those living nearby, soiling of property and various disturbances to everyday life. Thankfully there are companies which specialise in bird control Bristol and can help tackle the problem of nesting birds.

Here at Total Bird Control we use the most discreet techniques to deal with the problem of pest birds because we know what happens if breeding goes on unchecked. Pigeons are the main problem in this area. These birds multiply quickly and carry bacteria such as E-coli, Salmonella and others which can cause illness and diseases such as Ornithosis.

Pigeon faeces can cause respiratory problems for a building’s inhabitants in addition to various other illnesses if ingested or coming into contact with an open wound. Furthermore, pigeons have no problems living amongst their own dead, which can lead to guttering and drainage becoming blocked by dead birds and the build up of faecal matter.

At Total Bird Control we use spikes, netting, post and wire and trapping techniques to deter birds and control populations – all performed quickly and inconspicuously. We can offer solutions where competitors cannot, due to innovation and experience.

Our bird proofing services comprise a range of options which get rid of birds and stop them returning, therefore avoiding the various damage to buildings and noise disturbance that nesting birds cause. So remember, birds are not totally out of reach; services in bird control Bristol like those provided by Total Bird Control can provide permanent solutions.

The garden is commonly one of the primary selling points in a property; trees, flowers and grassy areas can all add to the appeal of a home, particularly amongst families with small children or pets. Unfortunately, with such busy lifestyles, many homeowners are unable to provide the care and attention that is required to keep a garden in good condition, and in some cases as trees grow they can cause real problems for the foundations of a property. We at Gardenbusters provide tree removal Birmingham, as well as a range of services to keep the garden in tip top condition.

Whilst the part of the tree that is above the ground may look relatively normal, the roots beneath can sometimes grow so large that they could cause issues for the structural stability of the home. It is in these cases when specialists in tree removal Birmingham, such as us, recommend that the tree is cut down.

Trees that are positioned too close to a home can also cause a number of other issues, resulting in the need for them to be reshaped or trimmed. Common problems include branches being positioned too near to windows and causing damage to the roof or guttering.

Those homeowners that feel they need to take action will be pleased to hear about the wide range of services that we have to offer such as, felling, logging, chipping, re-shaping, root removal and stump grinding. We can also provide comprehensive consultancy to homeowners that are unsure as to the best course of action.

To speak to a member of our knowledgeable team regarding tree removal Birmingham, homeowners are advised to contact us either via telephone or by filling out the enquiry form on our contact page. We will be happy to discuss the problem, how it is affecting your home and the best method of treatment.

In 2009 we were asked by FHM to carry out pigeon proofing Birmingham and clearance work on 3 high rise flats in the town of Wolverhampton.

FHM-Photo-300x200Each flat was 20 stories high and consisted of 6 balconies on each floor this was a total of 720 balconies. Each balcony underwent decontamination to be cleared of pigeon fouling and treated with disinfectant in order for other contractors to safely carry out concrete repair work and window replacement. Once the repair work had been done we carried out a second spray treatment ready for our team to carry out the pigeon proofing work.

Due to the size of the building all work had to be carried out using a mast climber.
The bird proofing consisted of a mixture of bird netting and bird spikes. For the bird netting, fixing brackets were installed at 1 metre intervals. A 2 mm galvanised wire rope was used with barrel strainers at each end to take up any slack then black 50mm polypropylene nets were fitted to straining wires on all of the balconies.

The job was finished off using bird spikes glued on the window sills between each balcony to give total protection.
