Regulation of bird control is governed in the UK by the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981, placing protective measures on how animals need to be safeguarded nationwide.

Due to this, bird control specialists will adhere to strict practices and procedures when conducting any work. Bird netting is a popular choice for customers, as it is a humane and versatile way for protecting property from bird activities.

Pigeons are one of the main objectives for bird netting, particularly in the urban space. For a guide on the different guides of pigeons found in the UK, have a look at this article written by the RSPB.

At ICE Cleaning, we provide highly effective bird netting solutions in both domestic and commercial environments. We are available 24/7, 365 days a year, so whenever you need our help with any bird problems, we've got you covered.

Main bird netting uses

With this in mind, let's take a look at some of the key ways bird netting is used throughout the UK and how professional assistance is recommended for installation of the treatment.

Commercial properties

One of the main uses for bird netting is on commercial properties, where birds roosting and nesting can affect businesses.

This humane way of bird control is a popular choice for company owners, as their presence can disrupt working hours and cause issues for customers visiting the premises. Due to the strict laws protecting birds, any control measures are heavily regulated.

Bird netting is a cost-effective way for businesses to protect their buildings from birds, and encourages them to make their homes elsewhere. It can be implemented on all aspects of structures, from balconies to eaves. 

A professional bird control technician will have plenty of experience in placing bird netting carefully and effectively. Our teams can work at a time suitable to you, which will help you to reduce downtime.

Agriculture

Crops produced in the agricultural sector are frequently subject to birds and other animals eating them. This can cause issues for those who work in this field, which is why many opt for safe bird netting to protect their crops.

Agricultural workers rely on their crops to make profit, which could be heavily impacted should birds eat great swathes of them. Due to its versatile nature, bird netting can be fit to any size and aid employees in ensuring their crops are safe. 

What's more, this pest control will not affect crops from growing, as they still have access to nutrients from the ground and get the benefits from the sun and rainfall too. 

Our bird control technicians work closely with customers to find the right type of netting for them, listening to their requirements to achieve the best results. Prior to each job, they will also perform a thorough risk assessment to identify any potential hazards and to help in choosing the right equipment to use.

Preserving historical buildings

Maintaining historic properties requires a lot of upkeep, which can sometimes result in significant and expensive work.

As a bird pest control treatment, netting is used on these kinds of buildings to prevent harm coming to surfaces from roosting and actions such as defecation. For instance, pigeon guano can cause damage to brickwork and nesting materials may cause roof leakages from blocking gutters. 

Careful repair work will be needed if properties are affected by these issues, which is why bird netting is a favourable option for those who work to preserve these sites.

Not only this, but the aesthetic of the building could be impacted from the harm that birds can cause to exteriors. Historic properties attract many visitors each year, so it is important that they are kept in a fresh and clean condition.

This useful document by English Heritage highlights some of the problems pigeons can cause to historical buildings and similar sites, and gives an insight into their lifestyles.

Protecting fish ponds

Bird netting is often used as a protective measure on fish ponds to stop birds and other predators eating fish. 

Additionally, netting works as an effective solution against natural matter which can drop into the pond and creating an unsafe environment for the fish. For example, algae may develop from different substances falling into the water. 

This method of prevention is good if your nearby area is full of birds. It can be very upsetting if your fish are preyed upon my other animals, and bird netting provides a cost savvy way to help limit the possibility of this.

Here at ICE Cleaning, we are able to provide bird netting services nationwide. Additionally, we can tailor the offering to meet your individual needs. So regardless of the type of solution you require, we are on hand to assist you.

Domestic properties

Though on a smaller scale to agriculture, bird netting is utilised in domestic properties to prevent birds from nesting on roofs, balconies or the like.

For a homeowner, enjoying your home is important. Bird netting is known for its longevity and for being affordable, which is why it works in all different kinds of settings.

Additionally, it can assist in the protection of plants if you are an avid gardener. As a lot of work is needed to sustain green areas, bird netting is a popular method for helping plants remain safe from predators.

Having a specialist put the bird netting in place is recommended, as they will understand the intricacies of the material and know how to carry out the work safely. For example, our technicians follow strict safety procedures throughout the job and use their expertise to deliver excellent results to customers.
