The need to control birds in and around buildings has been recognised for many years. The mess and potential contamination caused by birds in and around buildings not only looks unsightly; it is likely to cause a health hazard.
Several bird species have become an everyday sight in towns and cities; these include pigeons, seagulls and starlings. They have adapted extremely well to city life and breed pretty much all year round. With a constant supply of food, safe and warm shelter and a lofty perch on which to watch out for predators, urban life is good for these feral birds.
Each year, the populations rise, bringing with it more guano (bird poo), which contaminates our buildings, damaging the structural fabric of buildings and harboring potentially contagious diseases.
Rapid Environmental Services are experts in bird control and prevention. Working with Pigeon Protection Groups, we specialise in non-lethal forms of pigeon prevention. Bird prevention measures like bird spikes, bird netting, permanent weld mesh installations, Bird Free Gel deterrents and Avishock, a unique electronic bird deterrent system that actively trains birds not to land on buildings and ledges. When deploying our solutions, we remove any chicks and eggs and work with the Pigeon Welfare Groups to re-locate them where possible, removing the need for culling.
Whether it is birds in your loading bay areas in your logistic centre, or protecting your listed building from the effects of bird faeces with a discrete electronic bird prevention system, Rapid Environmental Services will offer the best and most cost effective system for you, often combining several technologies to achieve the desired results. The systems we offer have an amazingly short return on investment in most cases, so ask us for help now.
It is worth noting that most money for cleaning up bird fouling comes from the public purse, this could be spent more effectively elsewhere, hence the need for an effective system to protect the buildings and deter the birds once and forever.
Safety is our key concern, so all staff are CSCS (certification card scheme for construction) card holders, PTS (Personal Track Safety) for working on railways and IPAF trained for the use of Mobile Elevated Working Platforms. We are used to working at heights and in conjunction with other trades that may be working on the site, normally we are the last people on site after a refurbishment so we work closely with architects, landlords, property managers and site agents to ensure the job is done on time and to budget.
