Pesky Birds in WA
In Perth, Pigeons, Seagulls, and Swallows are among the biggest sky-bound pests that pose a risk to the environment and your health.
If you’ve ever tried eating fish and chips on one of Perth’s beautiful beach cafes, you would know that Seagulls and Swallows are a nuisance because of their scavenger tendencies, as well as their soiling of surfaces with faeces. For example, if bird droppings are left on your car for too long, it can ruin the paint job, which can be expensive to repair. However, Pigeons pose the biggest threat to us, as they are known carriers of more than a dozen different diseases that are harmful to humans. Some of these include Histoplasmosis, Encephalitis, and Toxoplasmosis.
This is a systematic fungal disease that can be found in dried Pigeon faeces. It affects the lymph nodes, trachea, and bronchi of the lung and can cause a range of symptoms. Occasionally it can affect other organs, and when left untreated, it can be fatal.
Encephalitis is a viral disease that can be transmitted to humans by mosquitoes, who pick it up when they bite Pigeons. Some symptoms include headaches, fever, confusion, fatigue and even seizures or convulsions.
An influenza type disease, Toxoplasmosis comes with serious health repercussions, especially if a pregnant woman contracts it.
The Importance of Bird Netting
Bird netting is one of the easiest ways to eliminate bird related issues in Perth because it’s an immediate, effective, and discreet solution.
Our nets are designed to block birds out 100%, stopping them from roosting and nesting in unwanted areas. They’re also effective in stopping birds from pecking at fruit trees or vegetable crops.
Control the Birds
Bird netting is just one of the ways to prevent birds from taking over your business or even your home. The Pest Guys also have a range of other products that will keep away any feral birds.
This is a low-profile electrified track that will shock any bird that tries to land, without hurting them. It simply teaches them to stay away by using negative reinforcement.
Daddi Long Legs
Perfect for use on rooftops and other open areas, the Daddi Long Legs system targets Seagulls, Pigeons, and a range of other larger birds. Its thin stainless steel rods rotate in the breeze and wave menacingly, which interferes with birds’ wings when they try to land.
Our Eagle Eye unit is an optical bird scarer that is approved and recommended by the Department of Nature Conservation. It works by harmlessly relocating birds from unwanted areas, such as buildings, airstrips, and public areas.
