BIRDS OF PREY AND BIRD CONTROL
Falconry services specialise in using birds of prey to deter roosting,
nesting, feeding or colonies of pigeons, seagulls and other nuisance birds.
The birds we fly are captive bred in the UK; they each have current and
relevant DEFRA paperwork to abide with current UK laws.
We tend to use two types of bird,
- The Harris Hawk, native to South America, the are designed to fly
in close country therefore adapting well to build up areas such as factory units, etc. They are a very sociable bird living in family
packs in the wild and this sociable nature transfers in captivity.
- Saker Falcons are native to Russia and Central Europe, they are
larger than are native peregrine, They are hand reared from a few days old, we use hand reared and not parent reared birds, as from a few days old we have them on sites that they may be working when they are older, by having the baby birds on sites where there is heavy plant working and public they are completely relaxed and happy in the working site environment.
Birds of prey are used as a deterrent, they do not catch any of the nuisance
birds, the birds have to be flown regular over the site which installs into
the pest bird that this is a falcons/hawks territory therefore not a safe
place to roost, colonise.
This practice tends to be used in areas that are very much in front of the
public to ease the concerns of the public, where trapping or bird proofing
may not work or be suitable, i.e. Listed buildings, Stadiums, City centres.
All our Pest control technicians are fully trained experienced falconers,
with an extensive knowledge and understanding of pest birds, therefore
having maximum impact when clearing a site.
