Add to Your Revenue by Adding Bird Control

Friday, September 16th, 2011

As a contractor, you’ve learned that one of the best ways to increase revenue is to increase the number of services you offer your customers. And one of the most revenue enhancing services you can offer today is bird control. Regardless of the size or type of building, and no matter what the job, bird proofing is a vital part of protecting any building or structure from the damages imposed by pest birds.

 

Bird proofing is essential to protect a building’s heating, cooling, ventilation, and air conditioning system from falling victim to the damage caused by bird droppings, bird nests and other bird related debris. Your customers know that these systems can be very costly to repair or replace.

 

The same holds true for a building’s plumbing systems, drains, drinking fountains, and sprinkler systems. Even the timers that control them must be kept free of bird droppings and other debris to function properly. Likewise, outdoor walkways, tables and chairs used by employees should also be kept free of disease-carrying bird droppings lest they contaminate these and other areas.

 

Outside lighting and security systems must be kept clear and fully functional to ensure the safety of visitors, customers and employees. Bird droppings and other bird debris can obscure and render these systems ineffective unless bird-proofing measures are installed. Similarly, outer locks, doors and windows can seize up, leaving gaps in a building’s security and necessitating expensive repairs.

 

What’s more, many property owners have seen their roofs, exterior facades and signage permanently damaged by pest-bird droppings and nesting materials. The acid in bird droppings can quickly eat into painted signs and plastic moldings, and they can crumble stone facades. All the more reason your customers will be asking if you also provide bird-proofing services.

Bird Proofing Solutions You Can Offer

Today’s bird proofing solutions are humane and highly effective. These scientifically designed bird deterrents are easy to install and virtually maintenance free. Most are visually unobtrusive and balance aesthetics with function. Here are just a few bird control products you can install to boost your revenue.

Window washers: Bird Control is an excellent add on service for adding extra revenue

Monday, July 11th, 2011

We were recently interviewed for American Window Cleaner Magazines’ annual bird control issue, found HERE.

In it owner Bruce Donoho explains why Bird Control is good fit for window cleaners looking to increase their revenue stream. Not only are window washers exposed to bird problems on building exteriors, they usually have the equipment and experience for reaching those hard to reach spaces where birds like to land and roost.

American Window Cleaner also featured our product, Bird Jolt Flat Track, a low profile electric track system used to prevent birds from landing or roosting in unwanted areas. Bird Jolt Flat Track from Bird-B-Gone is the only electric bird abatement system with a patented anti-arcing design to prevent track short-outs. Bird Jolt is made by Bird-B-Gone in the USA and is ideal for areas where aesthetics are a concern.

Window Washing Companies Adding Bird Control

Written By: Alex Kecskes

More window cleaners are adding bird control to their list of services and doing quite well at it. Add-on services are ideal for all window cleaners.  It’s rare to find a window cleaning company that only offers window cleaning service.  Most companies offer at least 2 or 3 add-on services. Adding bird control services to a window cleaning company’s offerings can fatten service contracts, especially when the client must comply with public health codes to operate—like restaurants.
