Bird Control

Trusted experts in Bird Control for Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall.

Modern solutions, flying with tradition

The South West's leading Bird Control experts

Falcon Environmental Services are specialists in environmentally-friendly Bird Control solutions for commercial and domestic clients in Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall as well as across the UK.

We understand the crucial role birds play in our natural environment and our services are tailored to respect the indispensable work they do in protecting the wellbeing of our world.

But, nuisance birds, such as seagulls, pigeons and starlings, can also pose significant challenges to properties, causing damage and creating risk to public health and safety. They require extensive knowledge to deter them or prevent them nesting in the first place.

We always advise using professionals for all your bird control and proofing methods as these birds are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981 which prohibits damage or destruction to an active nest or its contents.

Our Bird Control services offer solutions that always prioritise bird welfare and natural, often traditional methods.

We offer a comprehensive range of Bird Control solutions, including Hawking, Bird Scarers, Bird Proofing, Bird Spiking and Bird Netting.

Our highly skilled team are experts in Hawking -which involves our qualified falconer working in harmony with the natural instincts of our magnificent birds of prey.

These birds act as a deterrent, encouraging nuisance birds to seek alternative roosting and nesting locations away from your property. This method is highly effective and eco-friendly, as it does not rely on harmful chemicals or disruptive techniques.

Our humane and natural solutions provide a sustainable approach to Bird Control. Contact us for a free consultation – we’ll diagnose your problem before arranging a visit to your property to carry out the most suitable solution.

Hawking is a popular method of deterring nuisance birds across the counties of Devon and Cornwall. Our hawks patrol and fly over the potential nesting site and send out a warning to seagulls and pigeons that this is a falcon’s territory. The objective is to make the nuisance birds feel uneasy, encouraging them to move on to a new home. Hawking is used as bird control across Plymouth, Exeter and/or Truro and the coastal regions of Devon and Cornwall and carried out by licensed professionals.

The concept of bird scaring involves the use of audio and visual deterrents designed to unsettle nuisance birds, encouraging them to move on.

We are qualified installers of the UK’s No.1 bird deterrent, BirdAlert, an innovative audio bird deterrent with a range of up to 250 metres. It works by detecting specific calls from bird species and then playing back the distress call of that species in order to scare and deter the birds from that area.

In addition to the audio deterrent, BirdAlert also offers visual add-ons, such as a pop-up Scareman, to maximise and vary the scaring tactics.

Other audio and visual scaring tools are available depending on your situation and we would be more than happy to make recommendations having undertaken a Bird Survey – another service we offer when it comes to bird control in Plymouth, Exeter, Truro and the coastal regions of Devon and Cornwall.

Bird Netting is a safe and effective way to prevent nesting birds. We design and install bespoke netting systems dependent on the problem species of bird, their habits and the environment. We offer bird netting solutions across coastal and suburban areas, for domestic properties we cover most of Devon and Cornwall, for commercial properties we cover Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and will consider UK-wide installations.

If you have a severe infestation of perching birds, then bird spikes offer an excellent deterrent. It is appropriate for all types of nuisance birds including seagulls and pigeons. Spikes are either stainless steel or plastic and prevent birds from landing, perching and nesting on the treated area. Falcon Environmental Bird Services offer bird spiking solutions across coastal and suburban areas, for domestic properties we cover most of Devon and Cornwall, for commercial properties we cover Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and will consider UK-wide installations.

If you have a persistent problem with birds in your chimney then a Chimney Cage or Cowl may be the answer. We supply and fit Chimney Cages and Cowls quickly and efficiently. 

We provide Solar Panel Bird Proofing for both domestic and commercial properties. Birds will often try to nest under panels – either between the ground or roof and can be difficult to remove. Solar Panel Bird Proofing is vital to guarding against this.

Bird guano causes damage to buildings and décor, as well as being a threat to health, too. The bird guano can clog up ventilation, damage solar panels and erode away at paint and other surfaces. Bird guano can be difficult and time-consuming to remove safely but our team are highly experienced in removing bird guano and sanitising the contaminated areas.

We support Churches, Cathedrals, Multi-Storey Office Blocks, Shopping Centres, Hotels, Hospitals and other large buildings with Bird Proofing Services, thanks to our experienced High Level Access team.

I was extremely pleased with Falcon Environmental Services. They were efficient, reliable, friendly and professional. I was happy that I found a local company to help with the problem of pests in my attic. They were always available to talk to explaining the situation to me and how they were going to deal with it. I really felt that they went over, above and beyond what I expected. Nothing was too much trouble, my calls and enquiries always returned with a friendly voice, care and consideration. I would honestly recommend them and use their company again if the need arises. It’s very comforting to find good, reliable professional people you can rely on. Thank you to everyone at FALCON.

5/5

We have recently started using Falcon Environmental Services for a number of large commercial solar panel installations in the Plymouth area, both sites are located on the River Tamar and have a history of nesting birds. From the very beginning, it has been a joy to work with the team. The results have been fantastic, we have gone from having hundreds of birds on a roof to a dozen in a matter of weeks. I would not hesitate to use Falcon for future projects and I would recommend them to anyone that needs any Hawking needs.
