Why do I need bird netting on my building?

Amongst other things Pigeons can spread disease and leave unsightly droppings on your buildings.

 

If you look carefully you can see nylon bird netting and pigeon netting on many buildings all over the world. The discreet looking netting keeps pigeons and other birds such asgulls and sparrows from nesting or perching on ledges of buildings. By using bird netting and pigeon netting you can prevent unsightly droppings of birds from contaminating your building.

 Pigeon netting and bird netting can help prevent:

  • Damage to your buildings and corrosion of stonework caused by pigeon droppings
  • Nesting material, droppings and dead birds from blocking gutters and drains leading to water damage to buildings.
  • Infections which can be transmitted to humans from pigeon

What do I need to do before pigeon netting or bird netting is installed?

  • Pigeon droppings or bird guano, which is the technical term for bird excrement, should be removed prior to installing bird netting or pigeon netting.
