Our experts say the most effective way to prevent birds from nesting in loading docks is to install bird control netting. Professionally installing bird netting will completely prevent birds from accessing the rafters and I-beams. Netting is truly the only option that will ensure a bird-free environment. The rafters, I-beams, supports and the ceiling of a loading dock provides ample protection from harsh weather conditions and predatory birds. This is precisely why pigeons and other birds find loading docks ideal for nesting.
In addition to netting, secondary deterrents can help keep birds out of the general area. Products such as Avian Block Bird Repellent Pouches irritate the bird’s senses to repel from the area. Harmless to humans, these pouches utilize grape seed extract to drive birds out. Sound and visual deterrents can be installed in addition to netting to scare birds away from the general area surrounding the property. These products trigger the bird’s instinct to flee when danger is detected.
Loading docks are a prime target for bird infestations due to their sheltered nature, which offers protection from both harsh weather conditions and potential predators. Without a proper bird control plan in place, your loading dock can quickly become a sanctuary for birds, disrupting the efficiency of your business's shipping and packaging department. By implementing effective bird control measures, you can ensure a more productive and hygienic working environment for your employees while protecting your reputation from the harmful effects of bird infestations.
