What is Bird Netting, and How is it Used?

Bird netting is a highly effective bird control solution that provides a physical barrier to prevent pest birds from accessing specific areas. It is commonly used to protect outdoor spaces, roof spaces, and other areas where birds cause problems. High-quality bird netting is a type of netting made from durable materials such as nylon, wire, or polyethylene.

It comes in different sizes and mesh configurations to cater to various bird species and their behaviours. The installation of bird netting is crucial for its effectiveness and longevity. Proper installation ensures that the netting remains secure, preventing birds from landing or nesting within the protected area.

By creating a barrier between birds and their desired or damaging locations, bird netting helps maintain a clean and bird-free environment, minimizing the risks associated with bird infestations such as property damage and health hazards from bird droppings.

Types of Bird Netting We Use

Just like any worker should use the proper tools for the job at hand, Icon Bird specializes in bird control and installs the exact type of bird netting that is required for your specific situation.

Polyethylene Bird Netting
Commonly used in agricultural settings, it is lightweight, easy to install, and offers excellent protection against small to medium-sized birds.

Knotted Bird Netting
Knotted bird netting is suitable for larger birds, is made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and features small knots at the intersections, providing added strength and durability.

Welded Wire Bird Netting
Welded wire bird netting is constructed from galvanized or stainless-steel wires, offering superior strength for heavy-duty applications where resistance to larger birds, rodents, and pests is required.

Pigeon Netting
Pigeon netting is specifically designed to deter and exclude pigeons from roosting and nesting in areas such as balconies, rooftops, ledges, and other high-rise structures. The smaller mesh openings prevent pigeons from passing through.

Evidence of Birds in the Area

Evidence of birds in the area can include various signs that indicate their presence. One common sign is the presence of nesting sites. Birds often build nests in areas such as trees, vents, and balconies. These nests can be made of twigs, leaves, and other debris.

Another telltale sign is the accumulation of bird droppings. If you notice a high concentration of bird droppings in a particular area, it could indicate that birds are roosting or nesting nearby. Clogged gutters can also be a sign of bird activity. Birds may build nests in gutters, causing them to become blocked and overflow. This can lead to water damage and other issues.

Furthermore, damage to balconies can be another clue. Birds may peck or scratch at surfaces, causing visible damage. This can be particularly problematic in outdoor spaces where birds may be attracted to food or nesting materials.

Identifying these signs before proceeding with bird netting installation is crucial. It allows for a comprehensive assessment of the area, helping to determine the extent of the netting required and any additional measures that may be needed. By understanding the evidence of birds in the area, the installation process can be tailored to effectively address the specific bird control needs.

Preparing the Area for Installation

Before the situation gets any worse, it is crucial to properly prepare the area to ensure a successful and long-lasting installation. Here are the necessary steps we follow:

1. Assess Evidence of Bird Presence: Before installing the netting, we assess the area for evidence of bird activity. Signs such as bird droppings, nests, feathers, or damage caused by birds suggest the need to have bird netting installed. These signs will help determine the severity of the bird issue and the appropriate measures needed for control.

2. Evaluate the Area: Proper evaluation of the area is crucial to determining the size and type of netting required. We consider the size of the area, the type of bird species present, and the specific problem you are dealing with.
