Bird Pest Control & Bird Proofing SolutionsWhether you have a one-off residential problem or are suffering an ongoing issue at your commercial premises, we can implement bird proofing solutions for your property, safely and effectively

Abate Pest Management is a bird control expert, providing effective solutions for a range of industries such as retail, warehousing and distribution, construction, facilities management and commercial property management.

From lasers to spikes and netting, we have a range of products and services that we can use to help deter birds from landing and making their nests on your property.

All the staff who are assigned to bird proofing projects are IPAF trained, for working at heights and for operating power access equipment. They are also PASMA trained, for scaffold tower and AGR (Advanced Guard Rail) systems.

It is important to note that it is illegal to interfere with or disturb nesting birds, and extreme caution should be exercised in dealing with any birds. Speak to the experts first.

In this recent case study, we demonstrate how and why we advocate bird-proofing solar panels. Our customer encountered roosting and nesting pigeons beneath their panels, resulting in gutters blocked with guano and noisy bird neighbours! To address this issue, our expert team conducted an assessment and devised a cost-effective and efficient solution to prevent future pigeon nesting. Read more here.


Our Bird Proofing Methods


Bird pest control netting systems screen off problem areas and can be 100% successful when installed correctly. The bird control mesh netting comes in a variety of sizes to suit the breed of bird causing the problem and in a variety of colours to suit your building’s masonry.


Post-and-wire systems

Post-and-wire systems are a tried and trusted method of bird proofing. They can be used on ledges, ridges, and other structures and work by preventing birds from gaining a foothold.


Electrical deterrents

We also use Avishock which is an RSPB approved product that educates birds via a harmless electric shock – in the same way that electric fences manage cattle – to stop them landing and nesting on ledges, roofs, and other locations on your property. This system is particularly useful for Grade 1 and 2 listed buildings and other sites where more conventional bird control methods are not allowed.


Gel systems

Gel systems are a great deterrent to discourage birds from landing on your building. The gel is applied to ledges and ridges. To the birds the gel feels unpleasant and unstable, and this discourages them from perching.


Spike systems

Spike systems consist of strips of metal or plastic spikes that again provide a physical barrier preventing birds from landing. They are a cost-effective and adaptable solution that can be used on a wide range of buildings.



Lasers are the latest in bird proofing technology. At Abate, we use a fully automated laser bird repelling system. This state-of-the-art bird control solution uses birds’ natural instincts to harmlessly deter them from nesting or roosting. It works by projecting a moving laser beam across a rooftop. The birds see the beam as a threat and stay away from the building.



Regularly flying hawks in a location, up to 3 times a week, can prove to be an effective deterrent especially if combined with other proofing methods. The aim being to make life uncomfortable for the problematic birds, as they recognise the threat posed by the hawk and eventually will move on to another roosting/nesting spot. It’s very rare for the hawk to actually catch any bird, but its mere presence acts as a deterrent.
