South Hams Bird Control

Professional South Hams Bird Control Services

All across the Devon area, and further afield, nuisance birds are a problem. Not only for homeowners who may have pigeons or gulls nesting on their solar panels or chimney stacks but also for business owners, farmers and land owners.

If you are looking for effective and professional help with this issue, our South Hams bird control services are highly effective. 

South Hams Nuisance Birds

Not only are nuisance birds noisy and messy, they are also pose a threat to health and can cause untold damage to crops and property. The trouble is, you can’t just scare them off yourself and not expect them to return. As soon as you disappear, so will they. It’s also against the Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981 to interfere with their nests so you can’t move them while nesting. It’s a problem – you need them gone but you are limited with what you can do.

Some of the problems you might incur from gulls, pigeons, starlings and crows, for example, include:

  • Potential contamination from bird faeces
  • Damage to property
  • Risk to humans from aggressive birds
  • Noise and general disturbance
  • Destruction of crops, especially freshly planted seed
  • Threat to livestock (disease)
  • The unpleasant sight of mess


No-one wants this on their property. It’s a threat to health, causes damage and can cost you money.

South Hams Bird Netting services

Once birds have taken up residence, it can be hard to get rid of them without resorting to sophisticated methods of bird scaring (see BirdAlert). The best course of action is to prevent them nesting.

Of course, this form of South hams bird control has to be carried out before nesting season. Generally this is the period in between birds fledging the nest and then pairs returning to build new nests in the spring. 

Bird netting is the most effective method of bird proofing and stops birds being able to land on your roof, ledges, around chimney stacks etc. With professional South Hams bird netting, you can be confident that these nuisance birds won’t be taking up residence at your property. 

South Hams Bird Spiking

Bird spiking is an alternative to bird netting and used when netting isn’t viable. Spikes are used in higher, smaller places where birds find it easier to perch and roost.

The placement of spikes makes the area inhospitable to birds encouraging them to find somewhere else to nest.

South Hams Bird Control

While bird netting and spiking are two highly effective methods of bird control, there are other services which can help. These include hawking and at Falcon we are lucky to have a team of reliable birds of prey that are used to fly over an area populated by gulls and pigeons to scare the birds into moving on.

Our birds are important members of the team and are accustomed to leading a very comfortable life with us.

South Hams BirdAlert

BirdAlert is a sophisticated method of bird scaring which uses various tactics to encourage birds to move on. Unlike other audible bird scaring tactics, BirdAlert has a variety of tactics which can be programmed to target a specific species. The sounds are played at various times and intervals to avoid habituation meaning that the birds see the sounds as a true threat of a predator in the area.

We have seen great success with our South hams Bird Alert system which is now used by many commercial organisations to manage their bird control requirements.

I was recommended Falcon to remove a wasp nest from the fascia’s which turned out to be two nests. I can’t rate them highly enough and their quick response was thoroughly followed up until completely sorted. They are honest, friendly and reliable and I would not hesitate to recommend them. It is great to support local people who are good at their work and this is a team who really deserve exactly this. Thank you.

Matthew was extremely thorough and very professional and informative. It was unnecessary to take any further steps as there was no evidence of mice.
