In pigeon bird control prevent the passage of birds within the protected area and its posamiento on it, being able to use this system or bird control method to protect buildings of almost every species that create problems, being in the case of the sparrows and starlings the only method is useful, as in high pressure situations against pigeons and seagulls.
There are three models, varying in mesh size, the choice depends on the type of bird that needs to be protected against the house:
- Pigeons: 50 mm.
- Starlings: 29 mm.
- Sparrows: 19 mm.
Each thread of the network is put together with 7 polyethylene and polypropylene fibers with a thickness of less than 10 denier twisted (the higher this number is thicker the braid). Each individual fiber has a breaking strain of over 20 kilograms and is chemically prepared to give a high resistance to ultraviolet rays. In the manufacturing process to stabilize predilata network by applying a voltage of 9 tons and injecting steam at 100 º C, thus ensuring the failure of bank or dilation under a minimum of 10 years. In addition withstand high temperatures (up to 120 º C without softening and up to 130 º C without melting).
The meshes are presented in coils of 10 m2, in black, stone and translucent. The black mesh is most often used because the others are just fouling. A factory can be ordered in different sizes but must be asked for a minimum of 20 days in advance.
Pigeon Bird Spikes
Bird control spikes consist of a myriad, a group of hardened stainless steel spikes that project out at all the angles. It provides uncomfortable landing to the pest pigeon birds. The base are subject to a solid foundation that can be installed in window sills, ledges, eaves, etc.. or anywhere else prone to raising the birds. These sharp wire violate discomfort in birds, preventing them to land on these surfaces. The cornices other niches should be filled completely to achieve a total effectiveness. The broad surfaces may require two or more rows and rows of parallel spines.
The barbed wire can be very effective, but must follow carefully the installation instructions provided by the manufacturer. If left too much space between the building and the fences or between rows of spikes, birds can take advantage of this and build their nests on the wire, creating the problem again. Also the wires should be inspected and cleaned periodically to remove garbage like twigs, leaves etc. Because this trash can protect the sparrows of the effect of sharp projections and continuing to use this area of the building
These pigeon bird control methods are useful in situations of medium and high pressure, however this system is not recommended for high blood pressure. If birds are sleeping, nesting can not become valid, but not in all cases. They are steel spikes on the basis of field-resistant special plastic. The base can be fixed with screws, but most used is a special silicone. It is essential that the substrate is clean and dry to stick well.
Depending on the type of pest birds can be classified different types of skewers.
Method of placement
Bird control spikes are very simple to place, how hard is to do well. The first row of spikes should be in line with the ledge (for example), so that is more external spike protruding from it. The maximum space that may exist between spikes is 6 cm, and that is the minimum gap for a dove to alight. In protecting the railings overlooking the area where he sees food. There are special skewers gulls, which are large. There are spikes of a single spike that only cover an area of 4 to 5 cm. The biggest drawback is its cost is high.
Systems poles and wires
It is a very useful bird control methods for pigeons and gulls in low pressure situations, and employees with care can also serve medium-pressure situations, especially if accompanied by a reduction of the population through trapping. This is a cheap system that can be used almost anywhere.
Method of placement
Poles are placed every 1.5m, engaging them in a block of nylon. There are areas that can not be drilled, so stick with silicone bases special plastic poles. When using silicone must wait for it to dry for 24 hours, keeping the birds away all this time
.The first row of the structure should be lower so that the birds do not enter through the bottom, or use poles with holes at different heights.
Just as the first line of wire must be oblique.
Between each line of wire should be a maximum gap of 5 cm. By putting the parallel rows, the springs should be rotated in order to prevent and to control pest birds and the pigeons did not land on them. The cables can go in some situations attached to the wall, without using poles. There are posts that have more than one hole at different heights. These can be placed in a "clothes line" protecting the top of the pole with a wire so that it does not pose a bird. This wire is also used in places where you used long strips to act as a brace to prevent bending these posts. The posts are also presented with clamps to apply to different diameter pipes, gutters, etc.. This system is not effective against starlings.
Alternative pigeon bird control repellents
Pigeon control repellents have been used for years to scare away the pigeon birds of empty buildings where roost or nest trees. Repellents are usually designed to affect one or more respects from birds to cause alarm and leaving the area or make their leisure activities and raising, become uncomfortable. There are four different types of bird control repellents:
For most of the problems with pest birds in urban and industrial areas, tactile repellents are available for the professional. There are two types of tactile repellents: mechanical and chemical
So far we have seen several mechanical repellents (barbed wire and networks), but there are other less important
Used to gulls. It is a system by which gives the bird can perch comfortably.
- Wires "source"
These are wires that move the air as a source. It is a good method for industrial situations, such as deposits circulars, etc..
Pigeons is a system for low pressure situations. The spring is attached to the substrate with silicone or with pins. It is a very economical and easy to install.
They are the type most widely used repellent in the pest control industry and are available in gels, pastes, sprinkling and aerosol cans for smaller jobs vary considerably Chemical repellents some are thick and gooey, others are jelly, and some are so sufficiently viscous to be sprayed.
Generally these repellents contain polyethylene or polibutioleno. These substances are toxic to birds, rather convey the sensation of warmth in the feet of birds when they land on them, causing them to move from perch and to settle elsewhere
For best results, all surfaces should be cleaned of all debris, dirt and bird droppings, before applying any repellent. Non-porous surfaces such as metal, do not require additional activities, but porous surfaces like wood brick and stone must be completely sealed with a sealant, adhesive and fluid penetrate into the interior of such materials. Waterproof tape can be placed on the surface where it will place the bird repellent, but if the seal on the surface is dry the substance is inappropriate to reduce the residual product.
The effectiveness of chemical repellents is lost over time, if however the dust, dirt, moisture, extreme heat or cold are reducing the life of these pigeon control products.
Disadvantages to be considered:
1. In areas frequented by people they look unsightly
2. They can be annoying for the cleaning staff
3. Pigeons can throw sticks and other materials on the repellent, which will disable
4. Only useful for small jobs.
In this kind of bird control method they are using of lights, fake owls, snakes, scarecrows, balloons and other devices. Some aids have limited agricultural use for crops but are generally not very effective on all urban and industrial environments. In these situations have an effect over a very short period of time as they become accustomed to ignoring coming
Ultrasonic pigeon bird control device
Ultrasonic pigeon bird control devices are very effective and very efficient in large areas. These include loud noises, sudden and unusual (explosions, alarmed speakers, recordings, etc.). It has little effect that adapt well to the sounds of birds, besides this noise in urban environments may be more bothersome to people.
