Birds that are considered pest birds include:
Indian Mynah, Common Starling, and Pigeon (Rock Pigeon) species
Indian Mynah Bird:
The Indian Mynah was originally introduced to Australia in order to control locus plagues. It is considered the worst species of pest birds and breeds at very high rates in city areas of the eastern states.
It is in the World conservation Union’s list of Worst one hundred invasive species of bird. The main reasons for concern are due to the mites and disease this bird carries. This pest has been seen to force native birds and also their eggs from out of their nests.
The Rock Pigeon:
This species of pigeon has damages property with acidic feaces including historic old stone buildings. Feral pigeons will cause damage to air-conditioning gear, drainage system, rooftops, and trenches,
Their feces is unsightly and corrosive and also a health risk. This is because of fungi and parasites that live within it.
These birds are known to drive native birds to extinction. They are prolific breeders, that when you have gotten rid of 1 flock, they are quickly replaced by newcomers.
Noise is the Starlings enemy and they are frightened off by loud noises, and they may be controlled by using mild electrical shock tape systems. After removing these birds, it is suggested that you should also destroy their nests.
These pest birds may create similar problems as pigeons. These types of problems are mainly just confined to coastal areas. Also airports tend to be built near bodies of water, so gulls can also threaten to air navigation.
They can be controlled via netting, electrical shock tape, simulated predators and noisemakers.
Options available to Bird Control
There now many pest birds that are now roosting in suburban areas. They are fast becoming a plague in some suburbs of Canberra. Fencing, netting, audio and visual systems are effective in Pest Bird Control.
Bird netting is made up of polyethylene twine tied together on steel cables. This will block their access to places where it needs protection.
This is not enough to cause them harm, but strong enough to encourage them to stay away. These systems may be energized by battery pack, or solar energy.
Bird-Shock Flex-Track is a discreet low-profile ledge roosting deterrent system. It’s very effective against all pest bird species that conditions birds to stay away without causing them harm.
At around only 6mm high, in a wide variety of colours which can match the building material, Bird-Shock Flex-Track is difficult to see close-up and virtually invisible from a distance.
5 Year Warranty
It is manufactured from UV stabilized PVC and Stainless Steel. This recommended bird management product will be around far much longer than its 5 year warranty.
These are impossible for birds to perch on. This will present a surface that birds will not want to roost or land on.
Trapping is done where legal, is a deterrent program, new birds will fill the places left by the trapped and removed birds.
These play electronic versions of distress calls or species predator squawks to frighten the pest birds away.
Open Space Bird Control
Bird control problems in open or public areas like parks or schools may challenge. Birds roosting in trees may be impossible to get rid of. Only trapping and continued harassment has been successful in the past.
The Eagle Eye is an optical bird deterrent that deters birds without causing injury from protected areas by using light beams that are reflected from sunlight or artificial lighting.
The pyramid with reflecting lights rotates by an electric motor, sending out the beams of light in a menacing to birds pattern. This light spectrum disorients birds that are in flight by limiting their visual perceptions.
This will cause the pest birds to fly away to another destination and this is what we want! Give us a call and find out more information with no pressure to order our services on 0407 065 413.
