Bird proofing your produce

Your vegetable patch or allotment is potentially a 5* restaurant to the neighbourhood bird population. From seed to harvest time, they appreciate a great opportunity when they happen upon it. When one or two birds enjoy tasty fayre, they tell their friends and soon after your hard work and pride and joy produce could be decimated as frustration and health and safety risks elevate.

Bird control companies have a range of sophisticated, practical, cost effective and efficient bird proofing measures at their disposal. Fight back; take advantage of bird control services so unwelcome guests can’t dine from your patch and foul on it to cause risks to human health.

Don’t worry. The birds don’t get hurt, just discouraged.

The current Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 under General Licence states that pest birds can be dealt with, depending on the species and time of year, when one or more of these reasons applies:

  • To preserve public health and /or safety.
  • To preserve air safety.
  • To prevent serious damage or spread of disease.
  • To conserve wild birds.

Anti-bird netting and anti-bird mesh systems

In many cases anti-bird netting is an ideal solution because it can cope with small to impressive sized bird infestations.

Bird control services professionals recommend this as a humane approach to halt the progress of birds into open areas. The netting provides a shield which encourages the birds away from your crops.

Anti-bird netting is often comprised of a perimeter framework cable which is fastened in place using fixings at regular intervals. The cables are made taut when the net has been secured to the perimeter.

Anti-bird netting comes in different gauges. For example, Apex Environmental Services uses 19mm, 50mm and 75mm gauge dependent on the species of bird being tackled. Product colours vary but black, stone and translucent netting are perceived as the standards.

Anti-bird mesh systems are strong and self-supporting. They are suitable for any severity of bird infestation and provide an effective solution in areas which require humane bird proofing but are considered at risk from vandalism or damage which means anti-bird netting is not a viable option.

Anti-bird mesh systems can be clamped for simple removal or securely fastened in position. This method repels birds and human pests, even if your plot is larger, overlooked, reachable or accessible from busy paths or roads.

A range of colours is available, and the materials are rust proof for aesthetic and functional appeal.
