Birds Control

Large populations of roosting birds may pose a health risk to humans and must be dealt with by trained professionals who are knowledgeable in proper removal techniques.

The presence of birds can also cause serious damage to the face of building and to the paint of vehicles parked nearby. Bird excrement is corrosive and can cause problems with metal trim, electrical equipment and machinery around the building.

Vents and downspouts can become blocked by excrement, feathers and nest materials which then causes an accumulation of debris. Pests are attracted to this debris and can cause an additional infestation on the property.  

Pigeons, sparrows and laughing doves are the three most common species that congregate near buildings and cause problems. Technicians at ETS have extensive experience in birds control and will conduct an evaluation of your property.

This will be used to determine the size of the population and an appropriate course of action depending the mobility and habitat of the birds.

Depending on the severity of the infestation, a technician may suggest waiting until the population is at its lowest count, which is right before breeding season.

Bird Spikes

Installing spikes along building ledges is a common method for preventing birds from roosting in certain areas. There are a variety of different options available and include: porcupine wire, sharp metal spikes or anything that resembles a bed of nails.

This does have its limitations if the aesthetics of the building are important. The spikes may be visible but depending on the design of the structure, thanks to ETS Technicians the spikes can still be utilized in hidden areas as well as adjusting the color of the spike so that it looks almost invisible to create a deterrent.

To maximize their effectiveness, technicians will suggest that the spikes are evaluated every six months and any debris that has accumulated be removed. Droppings, feathers and nest materials can build up in between the spikes allowing the birds to continue to roost in the location.

If there are multiple ledges on a building, it is recommended spikes be placed on as many as possible to prevent the birds from simply moving to another ledge.  

Our spikes are suitable for the atmosphere of the Gulf region as they’re treated with UV treatment so that they can resist the effect of the big amount of sunlight exposure they receive.

When determining whether or not spikes are going to be the most effective choice for your property, an ETS technician will evaluate the area and observe how many trees are near the location.

Falling leaves have the ability to block the spikes making them less successful in preventing birds from roosting.

Bird Net

The use of netting to block large groups of roosting birds from settling in large areas is a technique utilized in many industrial spaces. When aesthetics are not a concern, especially in warehouses or around large pieces of equipment, netting provides protection from the destruction birds can cause to your property.

While birds are known to be carriers of disease, preventing them from roosting within warehouses and other industrial spaces is critical to maintaining productivity among employees. If workers are distracted by birds and are spending time with temporary solutions, their energy is not focused on their jobs.

These nets used to be made of metal or fiber but have been replaced with plastic. Normally composed of extruded polypropylene with an added ultraviolet inhibitor to protect against sunlight degradation, these nets last an average of five to ten years depending on the amount of sunlight exposure they receive.

If you are interested in the benefits of a bird net, an ETS technician can evaluate your property and determine how the nets can be installed to provide the best protection from roosting birds.

Bird Gel

Bird gels or sticky repellents are applied to surfaces and are designed to make birds uncomfortable when they land. The active ingredient is either polybutene or isopolybutene, the same substance used in adhesive bandages and the goal is not to have the birds get stuck.

The birds may attempt to land for a short period after it has been treated but the birds will quickly associate discomfort with those ledges and seek alternative roosting locations. This is an effective alternative to bird spikes in areas where maintaining the aesthetics of the building is a priority.

For maximum efficiency, it is important the material is applied properly. ETS technicians are trained to understand different surfaces and how to prepare them for use of a repellent. Ledges must be free of any debris, sealed prior to the application and completely dry.

Depending on the surface and type of repellent that is deemed the most appropriate for your property, different application techniques may be utilized.

The repellent can be applied using a caulking gun which gives more sufficiently to the treatment.

A consultation with an ETS technician will help you determine what is best for you and your property and develop a course of action.

Ultra Sound

If you have problems with birds at your home or commercial property, electronic devices that omit high-pitched frequencies may control problems with bird infestation. Humans cannot detect these but instead act as a deterrent for the birds that have the ability to register the frequency and can be irritated by it.

This is not an effective method for all situations. A free consultation with an ETS technician will provide you with the information you need to make an educated decision about the type of products you should use to control your bird problems. The decision will be based on the severity of the problem, what the facility is used for and where it is located. Our trained and experienced team will work with you to ensure you make the most appropriate choice.
