Netting is by far the most popular prevention for all species of pest bird. Netting, when installed professionally using the correct fixings, will prevent bird activity from the excluded zone. This method is commonly used around air conditioning units, light wells, fire escapes, shop fronts, power stations, stadiums and is effective in pretty much any area that pigeons can gain access too.
Netting can be installed using either a stainless steel or galvanised wire frame using corner fixings at every turn and ten metre intervals to take the main strain of the net. Depending on the bird species intermediate fixings are placed approximetly every 1 metre apart (starlings require every 0.5m and sparrows every 0.33m).
The actual net is made to order therefore any size can be obtainable although we prefer to work to a max of 20m x 20m per net due to the size and weight. The largest net installed by our company is approx 200m x 20m within a busy loading bay of a paper company in Oxfordshire.
The net is attached to the installed wire frame using the appropriate hogring staples. We use an American pneumatic hogringer to ease fixing time which we can also offer for hire if required.
We offer a 1 year guarantee to all bird netting we carry out. We can also offer a maintenance contract whereby we can repair any damaged netting and ensure the netting is effective for years to come.
