Bird control netting

Bird deterrent nettingBird control netting helps to prevent birds from perching and nesting. Suitable for domestic and industrial roofs, it can be purchased in a range of mesh sizes and colours to ensure it doesn’t prove an eyesore. Black, stone and translucent mesh is available to match the exterior of your building.

Knotted bird control netting can protect against nesting by seagulls, pigeons, starlings, sparrows and more. Different mesh sizes offer protection down to 19mm. Simple to fit with staples, corner ties or screws, you can also have knotted bird netting cut to size to perfectly fit your project.

Anti-perch bird spikes

Bird deterrent spikesAnti-perch bird spikes will stop birds from settling across the roofline of your building. This can inconvenience tenants and cause damage. With snap-off points lending to easy installation, anti-perch spikes available from Roofing Superstore can be installed using spike adhesive, nails or screws.

Bird deterrent spikes are available in stainless steel and polycarbonate. Choose between narrow, medium or wide spikes depending on the area you need protecting, and the type of birds you’re trying to avoid settling. For example, pigeons require narrow or medium spikes, while seagulls require wider solutions.

Visual bird deterrent options

Visual bird deterrentThere are several types of visual bird deterrent available. Agrilaser handheld bird dispersal lasers are ideal for repelling geese, pigeons, doves and many other types of bird. Using green laser technology, they have a far reach of up to 1,000 metres. If used consistently, they will make birds perceive the area as unsafe.

Alternatively, use a decoy bird as an affordable solution to deter pests. Perfect for small gardens, balconies and trees, they are available in several options. For example, the PestFix decoy flying falcon uses realistic movement to simulate a threat. Similarly, the Action Owl simulates realistic owl head movement.

The Terror Eyes inflatable bird deterrent ‘follows’ birds with its lenticular holographic eyes. Unsettling and constant movements scare pests away. This is a safe, humane and silent solution to bird deterrence.
