Need Pest Control For birds?


Bird Control SydneyWhy are some birds considered pests in Sydney?

Pest bird populations are on the rise Australia-wide due to urbanisation. The availability of an easy and continuous food source and our persistence in building structures that offer havens for pest bird species.

Birds that are known as pests include Pigeons, Seagulls, House Sparrows, Indian Mynas and Starlings.

The longer birds nest or roost in an unwanted area, the harder it is to remove them. Pigeons live in flocks of anywhere between 50 and 500, a small problem has the potential to turn quickly into a large infestation.

Birds have been known to:


Cause property damage:  dislodge roof tiles, block gutters, build nests which can cause a bird lice infestation and leave behind their droppings.

Safety Issues: Bids can often become aggressive and attack customers and employees during their breeding seasons.

Health Risk: As birds can carry fleas, ticks, mites, lice that can cause bites to customers and employees. These host pests can spread diseases and allergic reactions to their bites

Why is bird management critical to commercial clients?



Retail stores do not portray a good image with a building or signage covered in birds, nests and their droppings. The public no longer tolerates bird droppings on building as they believe the external look of the building reflects the internal look and cleanliness of the store.  Building & company owners and managers are beginning to realise this.


The ongoing cost of cleaning buildings, shop fronts and facilities can be quite significant.

Work Stoppages

Staff and contractors may not be tolerant of working in a bird infested facility where work stations are covered in bird droppings.

Hazard Risk

An increase the chance Slip and fall hazards on work sites due to dropped feathers, nesting and/or droppings


Bird droppings can damage materials such as painted surfaces, glass and steel as it contains uric acid.

Preventing birds entering your property is of the utmost importance. We will locate and secure all viable entry points to your premises. If nests are found, the area will be cleaned and sprayed for bird lice.

Management sometimes can be complicated due to the severity of the problem and the location.

We will determine the best method of control based on your needs by taking into consideration:

  • Area of application
  • The bird species
  • Your location
  • Access to the areas of concern

Some forms of control that may be used are as follows:

  • Shooting
  • Trapping
  • Baiting
  • Excluding

Non-chemical methods


There are many products available on the market today to help solve bird management problems. The most commonly used of these are:

  • Bird spikes – bird spikes deter birds from roosting on guttering, ledges, window sills and other flat surfaces by preventing them from being able to land.
  • Netting – high quality bird netting is used for all installations to ensure maximum protection.
  • Coil – Used to deter birds from landing on buildings and ledges. An effective method of when used in the right situation.
  • Shock – tape that is placed on any ledge to prevent roosting. When a bird lands on the tape it gives them a small electric shock as the deterrent.

Bird shooting


This method of control is mainly used for a single rogue bird or two. Pest Control Today can provide further information on this at your request

Bird Capture


This method involves encouraging live birds into a trap that is placed in their roosting or feeding areas that is either baited with a live bird or with grain.

Once a certain number of birds have been trapped, they are removed and killed. The traps will then be re-set.

Chemical controls


Chemical control for birds is a touchy subject, even if the bird in question is a pest species. The public take concern when they see birds in distress or dying.

Birds are fed untreated grain in a secluded area for about a week and on the 8th day the untreated grain is substituted with treated grain. The grain is treated with a narcotic substance, the purpose being to induce stupor in the bird so that it is easily caught and killed.

This method strictly complies and is in accordance with the National Parks & Wildlife Service.
