Pest Control

Common types of pests we exterminate:

Bird Control

Bird proofing requires the use of reliable, professional bird deterrents to ensure an effective, long term solution to any bird control problem.

Most bird species are considered a nuisance for businesses and gain entry into premises through damaged roofing. Pigeons, Seagulls, Sparrows and other species have become a massive problem for buildings, residents, the health conscious as well as farmers. Bird infestation is associated with acidic droppings, disease, lice, noise, property damage, product-loss and many more.

The most common pest-bird in Cape Town is the Starling bird:

  • Starlings are boisterous, loud, and they travel in large flocks. Starlings nest in suitable holes and crevices in houses (roofs), buildings and trees.
  • Males establish territories and choose nest sites, then attract females.
  • The nest is an untidy collection of grasses, bark strips, twigs, and other debris.
  • Their droppings may cause components of steel buildings to degrade and lead to significant structural damage. A potential health risk arises from soil enriched with starling droppings, which promotes fungal growth and lead to diseases.
  • Bird droppings onto goods stored in infested areas can make the products unsellable.
  • They continue to make noises (especially at night) in your attic and leave an unrecognisable smell in your house. They also carry bird mites which poses a health threat to your family.

Three stages of bird control solution:

Bird Removal

We will NOT kill any birds or chicks found in nests. They will either be relocated or left till they can leave the nest naturally.

Disinfection

Ensuring that the environment is clean and safe from lice and any diseases/viruses that the birds may have carried.

Bird Proofing

Ensuring that birds will not return and nest in or nearby your home again. Keeping your home or building pest-bird free.
