Last week we were contacted by two different property management companies to help them with their car park bird control problem.
Basement Car Parks vs Birds
Birds (mainly pigeons) have discovered the warmth and protection of car park basements. Now, this is nothing new but the problem of them nesting and dropping their faeces on cars is something that high level executives really don’t appreciate.
Anyone who has worked in a city office would know that only those well paid executives are provided with a car park as part of their salary package. They don’t wish to have their Audi, BMW or Mercedes spray painted by nature.
So, how to solve the problem.
We have been asked about bird sound deterrents which frankly, work for a week and then the birds adapt. Bird spikes are just another convenient way to place a nest. Poisoning birds (apart from being in humane) is against the law in many cases and cause an ecosystem nightmare.
Bird Proofing Australia provides one solution and one solution only.
Bird netting. It is the only permanent solution to stopping the birds from perching leaving them no choice but to find another home.
Both property management companies have taken this solution to their clients and have installed the bird netting with us.
Problem solved once and for all.
