Why Bird Netting?

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Written by: Alex A. Kecskes

Let’s face it, pest birds can cost you a lot of money. Especially when they gather, nest and poop in airplane hangars, canopies, garages, factories, warehouses, eaves and other covered areas. There are many ways to humanely get rid of pest birds. One of the most effective is bird netting.

It makes sense when you have hundreds to thousands of square feet to cover. The netting can stretch over all beams, ledges pipes and other areas birds can roost or nest on. Not to mention, Bird Netting is one of the few products that can successfully solve a bird problem where birds have been nesting. When birds establish a nesting site they can be very territorial about keeping their home. Bird netting acts as a humane barrier that completely blocks birds from reentering the site.

But before getting into why bird netting works so well, we should look at why doing nothing is not a good idea. (more…)

Bird Netting…an Effective, Humane Bird Deterrent

Monday, November 9th, 2009

NetCourtThere are songbirds, lovebirds and pet birds. And then there are pest birds. Birds we can all do without. Birds we don’t want to harm–we just want them to stay away. One way to do that is the subject of this article.

Bird Netting for Facilities Managers

If you’re a facilities or plant manager, you undoubtedly know that pest birds can cost you a ton of money and aggravation . They can easily invade your aircraft hangar, factory or warehouse, gathering by the hundreds in eaves, canopies and other large covered areas. Support beams make ideal landing, roosting and nesting areas for these pest birds. If you don’t keep them out with deterrents like bird netting, you’ll have to contend with all sorts of problems.

One of the biggest problems with pest birds is bird droppings. Aside from being unsightly and unhealthy, droppings can stop up gutters and down pipes. They can also “freeze up” ceiling windows and vents, as well as rooftop turbine ventilators and siding windows. Bird droppings can eat into corrugated metal surfaces, cover light sensors and security cameras, even block out those new solar panels you just installed to save energy. In fact, the acid in bird droppings can eat into electrical equipment to create a fire hazard. If you manage  a warehouse, bird droppings can spoil finished products in loading bays and storage areas. They can damage goods, and ruin the appearance of expensive finished goods. And something few facilities managers think about are slip-and-fall hazards created by bird droppings–this can become a costly legal liability should a worker or visitor become injured.
