Keep Birds Away: Bird Control for Property Managers

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

get rid of birdsUnhappy tenants create unhappy property managers. As a property manager it is your responsibility to upkeep the property so the tenants are happy and for the longevity of the property. When birds are sitting, pooping and nesting on roofs, canopies, window seals, balconies, in trees and other areas, it creates a mess that visually unappealing and damaging in some cases. It also poses health risks for your tenants and employees and legal risks for property owners.

Bird Control is necessary for property managers. Depending on the type bird you are dealing with and where they are located on the property, there are several solution possibilities to keep birds away. Bird Jolt Flat Track™, Bird Spikes and Bird Slope™ are a few options for property managers when it comes to getting rid of birds and maintaining your property.

Bird Jolt Flat Track is a low profile electrical track system that gives off a slight shock when birds land on the surface of the strip. The shock will not harm the birds; it will condition them to stay away from the treated area. Flat Track is now available in several colors: clear, black, gray, stone, Terra Cotta and red.

Bird spikes are a physical bird deterrent used to prevent larger birds, like seagulls and pigeons, from landing and nesting. The spikes will not harm the birds or humans. The spikes simply create an uneven surface making it impossible for the birds to land in a particular area. Bird Spikes come in a stainless steel or plastic. Depending on the width of the ledge, roofline or problem area, you can choose 3”, 5” or 8” stainless steel spikes and 3”, 5” or 7” plastic spikes.

Bird Slope keeps birds of all types and sizes from perching and roosting on ledges, beams, eaves and other 90° angle areas. Slope extenders are available for ledges up to 10” wide and end caps ensure birds don’t find their way behind the slope.

Need to Keep Birds Out of Rafters? Bird Netting to the Rescue

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

keep birds off with bird nettingBirds love to sit and nest in high places that protect them from predators and weather. This means that places with open ceilings with beams and rafters, like warehouses or manufacturing facilities, are perfect for birds in search of a nesting area.

Birds will sit on beams, pooping and preening, which causes a huge mess but the acidic droppings can erode building materials. Bird droppings also carry up to 60 transmittable diseases and when dried can blow around in dust form and be inhaled by humans. Nesting also creates a mess and a hazard. Workers who have to climb in the rafters, to change lights for example, are at risk of being injured or picking up diseases. Additionally, droppings fall on equipment and product or anything produced in the open area facility, potentially damaging or ruining the expensive equipment and product.

This is a serious problem that must be addressed. The best way to keep birds out is to create a barrier that fully excludes birds from being able to enter the area altogether. Bird Netting is the perfect solution for getting rid of birds in your rafters. The best, most efficient and effective bird netting is the Bird Net 2000™, which provides 100% bird exclusion and is the #1 bird net specified by architects and government agencies. Depending on the size of your affected area, there are multiple options for bird netting

Bird netting requires professional installation and installation hardware. If you do not have an installer, we can connect you with authorized installers in your area to ensure your bird netting is properly installed and your bird problems are solved.
