Damages Associated with Bird-Infested Loading Docks

While a bird or two may not be a big deal, a group of nesting pigeons on your loading dock can quickly become a major problem for your business. These birds can contaminate your product shipments with their droppings, creating a mess that can be difficult to clean up. In addition, the droppings can create slip and fall hazards for your employees, putting them at risk for injury. 

If left unchecked, a bird control problem can damage your company's reputation and create health risks for your employees. Bird droppings can carry over 60 transmittable diseases, making it essential to take action as soon as possible. Don't let a bird problem put your business in jeopardy – contact Bird B Gone for effective bird control solutions today. 

Note: It is important to clean away nesting materials and droppings thoroughly before installation of products.

How to Stop Birds Nesting in Loading Dock Canopy

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.

How to Repel and Scare Birds Away from Loading Docks

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.
