Bird Netting an Effective, Humane Bird Deterrent

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Article by: Alex Kecskes

There 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 bird 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.

Debris from pigeons roosting in a restaurant’s electrical sign is believed to be the cause of one of several fire-related calls that firefighters from the Yuma Fire Department responded to Wednesday.

At about 8:35 p.m. a fire was reported in the free standing sign in front of Rocky’s Pizzeria, located at 2601 South 4th Avenue.

Erfert said a passerby reported seeing flames coming from the sign. Power to the sign was shut down and the fire was extinguished.
