Bird of Prey Pest Control
Hawking is a traditional method of keeping problematic birds away from your property. It is simple and effective, deterring birds like pigeons, seagulls and starlings that can become difficult if they choose to roost or nest around your property. Birds can be attracted to large public areas where they might be able to find food, and hawking is one of the most effective ways to keep them at bay.
At Ninja Pest Control, our team has a wealth of experience when it comes to dealing with birds. We regularly use birds of prey to help deter birds from specific areas and our success record is very high. Our team will be able to find an appropriate solution for you, no matter what your pest problem might be.
How do you Know if you have a Problem with Birds?
If you feel you are being negatively affected by the birds living around your property, you are not alone. A large amount of UK properties are affected by birds, leading owners to seek solutions with pest control professionals.
Birds like seagulls can become very aggressive if they have young around your property – they have been known to attack and injure people. They can also cause a lot of damage to buildings when they begin nesting in them.
It’s important you don’t try to remove birds yourself. Nest sites are protected and you can be fined or even given a custodial sentence for moving or destroying them. It’s important to find a different solution, and that’s where we come in.
How can Hawking Work for you?
Hawking is highly effective and is often used at high profile events – hawks are famously flown at Wimbledon to keep flocks of birds away from tennis matches. Hawks or falcons are the most commonly-used species, as other birds will instantly recognise them as a threat. A bird of prey handler will visit the site on a regular basis for an extended period of time, flying hawks or falcons around the area.
By visiting the site regularly with predatory birds, we can deter other species from congregating and nesting in the area. They will begin to see it as unsafe and will find other places to roost, build nests and search for food.
This method of bird prevention is perfect if you need to control birds over a larger area or don’t want to have permanent fixtures like bird spikes installed. Handlers and their birds of prey can visit as many times as required depending on the nature of your problem or infestation.
