Bird Control Services
Using leading technology, our bird control experts provide customized solutions to address bird concerns specific to your situation, specializing in removal, exclusion and deterrence.
Some bird species are considered a real nuisance for businesses by entering loading bay areas or damaging roofing. Birds are known to create the following issues:
- Cause property damage by dislodging roof tiles, blocking guttering, building nests and leaving droppings that corrode building material
- Be aggressive and attack customers and employees, especially during the breeding season when they are defending their young
- Carry fleas, mites, ticks, lice and other biting insects which can spread diseases and pose a serious health risk
Adopting expert bird control measures sooner rather than later will ensure your business is protected against the hazards associated with pest birds.
Effective bird control requires the use of reliable and tested professional deterrents to ensure a long term solution to any pest bird problem. Factors which determine the best method of control include: area of application, bird species, location, access.

Batzner’s electric bird deterrent, called Bird Jolt Flat Track, is a cost-effective and discreet solution to keep pest birds away. The system can be used as a deterrent on any flat surface to completely exclude birds and prevent damage to your property. It is ideal for use on parapets, roof peaks, beams, ledges etc.
Benefits of Electronic Bird Deterrents
|Humane – the intermittent shock does not hurt the birds; it simply teaches them to stay away, long term.|
|Flexible – conforms to any surface shape.|
|Virtually invisible – only 6mm high and available in a variety of colors to match the structure. Bird Jolt Flat Track is hard to notice close up and virtually invisible from a distance.|
|Long-lasting – made from stabilized PVC and stainless steel.|
How it Works
- A charger sends out a harmless yet noticeable pulse down the ‘track’ every two to three seconds.
- This electric pulse lasts only a fraction of a second.
- The birds are not harmed, but they do learn that the protected surface is to be avoided in the future.
Diseases Carried by Birds
Professional bird control is not only critical to avoid damage to your property but also to minimize the health risks posed by the presence of certain birds. Birds are well known to carry a range of diseases and are hosts to other insect pests. Humans can develop symptoms similar to influenza from being in contact with or inhaling of air-borne fungi bird droppings. It is important to act at the first sign of a bird infestation to avoid these associated health hazards.
|Salmonella||This bacterium is deposited where pigeons or gulls defecate. It can lead to Salmonellosis and Paratyphoid fever.|
|Psittacosis||Also called Ornithosis or pigeon fancier’s lung. This infection can be transmitted by inhaling the bacteria from dried droppings or handling feathers of infected pigeons or seagulls.|
|Fowl pest||Known also as fowl plague or Newcastle disease. This virus can be transmitted to people when they’re exposed to fecal matter and other excretions from infected pigeon birds.|
|Escherichia coli (E.Coli)||Mainly spread by seagulls, it can lead to illnesses such as gastro-enteritis and septicaemia.|
|Fungal infections||Include Histoplasmosis and Cryptococcosis and are carried within bird droppings from seagulls.|
