Bird Control for Window Washing Contractors
Adding bird control services to your window washing business is an ideal value added service that can improve your bottom line. It can also save you from heavy and sometimes hazardous clean up chores on return visits. In your profession, you’ve no doubt experienced first-hand the headache created by cleaning bird droppings from windows and windowsills. The health risks associated with the accumulation of bird droppings, feathers and debris can be extensive. External parasites can also become a problem when infested birds leave nests, endangering window-cleaning crews.
Protect yourself and grow your bottom line by adding bird control products to your services. There are several bird control products to keep birds from landing and nesting on windowsills.
These smooth PVC panels provide anti-perching, anti-roosting protection against a wide variety of bird. You install these panels in all the nooks and crannies where pest birds love to build nests. Bird Slope presents an angled, slippery surface that birds just can’t get a solid footing on. They slip and slide but never land. The best panels are U.V. protected and sun- and weather-resistant.
Bird spikes are a great solution to keep birds from landing on windowsills. You can get bird spikes in either rigid U.V.-resistant unbreakable polycarbonate or high strength, durable stainless steel. The stainless steel bird spikes come in 3-, 5- and 8-inch widths; the plastic bird spikes come in 3-, 5- and 7-inch widths. Bird spikes install easily with glue, screws or nails. Pre-drilled holes along the base of the spike allow for quick and easy installation.
Birds despise the feel of stickiness and will avoid bird gel at all cost. An ideal bird deterrent solution for ledges, sills, rooflines, and other areas pest birds frequent, the best sticky gels are effective in temperatures from 15F to 200F. Gels are easily applied with a standard caulking gun. They greatly simplify pigeon control and are just as effective against crows, sparrows, gulls, starlings and many other pest birds. Gels offer the added advantage of needing to be re-applied every six months, which means return visits and repeat washing/cleaning business.
