In urban settings, property owners can face many challenges when it comes to managing birds. Ledges and roofs will be attractive perches to them and also make handy locations for nests, leading to droppings, feathers and other debris. If left unmanaged the presence of the birds can lead to health concerns as they can carry various bacteria, viruses and parasites that can be harmful to humans.
Bird proofing systems can help to tackle the problem, particularly when they are designed to effectively deter birds from landing on the structure. There are a number of options to choose from so you can select the right one for your particular setting. When deciding which type of system to use, it is important that it does not harm the birds or detract from the aesthetics of the property.
One of the best options on the market is Avishock. The system is very discreet so it can be added to any property without risking marring the facade, which means it can be successfully installed on modern and heritage structures alike. It is also incredibly flexible so it can be installed on all manner of facades, including flat and curved surfaces.
Avishock works in a similar way to electric fences for livestock, albeit with a much smaller current. It delivers a small, harmless shock to the birds that touch it in order to deter them from landing, roosting or nesting on a structure. This encourages the birds to adjust their behaviour and keep away from your property.
