Birds Pest Control

Pigeon and Seagull Pest Control

We remove birds in Essex quickly and efficiently

Ben’s Bugs Pest Control can help to identify if you have an infestation or a nest nearby and help learn how to deter birds and prevent nesting in the future.
When we are considering the above, it is really important you seek advice from a qualified pest controller beforehand as every wild bird and their eggs in the UK is rightfully protected by law under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.
The common Seagull and Pigeon are amongst the most common birds who can cause the most havoc in both your home and your business. If they have a ready food source and a sheltered area to nest, these birds can grow and breed rapidly and soon become a thriving colony.
Once they have settled, nests become extremely
difficult to remove whilst the bird is still nesting.

Birds can be a real nuisance in the UK, causing a range of problems from damage to crops and property to health and safety hazards. Here are some of the main reasons why birds are considered pests in the UK:

  1. Agricultural damage: Birds can cause significant damage to crops, eating the seeds and plants. This can result in significant financial losses for farmers, and can also lead to a reduction in food supply.

  2. Property damage: Birds can cause damage to buildings, monuments and other structures by nesting and roosting in inappropriate places. The droppings they produce can also cause damage to paint and stone work, leading to costly repairs.

  3. Health and safety hazards: Bird droppings can be a health hazard as they contain bacteria and fungi that can cause diseases such as salmonella and E. coli. In addition, bird droppings can make surfaces slippery and increase the risk of slips and falls, particularly in public places.

  4. Noise pollution: Birds can be noisy, particularly early in the morning and at dusk, causing disturbance to people living and working nearby.

  5. Allergic reactions: Some people are allergic to birds and their feathers, which can cause breathing difficulties, skin irritation and other symptoms.

In conclusion, while birds are a part of the UK’s rich wildlife, they can also cause a range of problems for people and property. It is important to use effective and responsible methods to control bird populations and minimize the impact they have on the UK.

When dealing with Birds, the Law must be kept in mind at all times.
The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 is the primary legislation which protects animals, plants and habitats in the UK.
