If we didn’t know better, we’d bet that birds are, deep down in their hearts, totally anti-business. Birds seem instinctively drawn to businesses of all kinds; warehouses, hangars, parking lots, loading docks, garages, rooftops, and signs are magnets for all manner of birds, including sparrows, pigeons, gulls, geese, crows, and many others. While it’s certain that the plentiful availability of food, shelter, nesting materials, and comfortable loitering spots surrounding various facilities are the actual attractions, it’s nevertheless somehow uncanny how these pestilential creatures can find a business and choose to hang out in the spots that pose the most difficult challenges for owners. And once birds move in, it’s very difficult to get them to leave; their persistent presence will unquestionably cause damage to your business, your property, and maybe even your brand. It’s almost as if they’re causing trouble on purpose.
Watch for the Signs
Here’s the truth: where there’s a business, there will be birds. It’s virtually guaranteed. And here’s another truth: where there are birds, there will be damage. The damage might be limited to minor structural cleaning issues or it could be as serious as slips and falls, disease, health code violations, blocked drains, or even electrical problems. To be clear, an occasional bird dropping by is not a problem; full-blown bird infestations are the problem. The following are signs of a bird infestation:
The consistent presence of birds sitting on roofs, cables, and ledges indicates a problem.
When droppings build up, recur in the same place, or become readily visible, it’s a sign of birds coming to stay.
When you hear continuous bird sounds, especially from young birds, it’s an indication of a bird problem.
Birds who build homes in your facility aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Building a nest is a messy process. If you can’t see the nests themselves, the presence of scattered bits of debris is a good indication of nesting activities.
Aside from droppings, roosting and nesting birds cause other damage to property such as holes from pecking or chewed wires.
If you suspect you have a bird infestation, it’s critical to take immediate action.
Exclusion is the Answer

Get Ahead of the Problem
Getting ahead of the problem is the best way to prevent costly repairs and cleanup. While it’s impossible to fully predict bird behavior, it is possible to identify patterns and anticipate problems. If you have a new business or birds have not yet moved in, bird netting is an excellent way to avoid the inevitable. If your business facilities include any of the following features, an exclusion strategy involving heavy-duty bird netting is a wise investment:
- Open loading bays
- Courtyards or balconies, especially where food is consumed
- Exposed eaves
- Large, 3-D, mounted signage
- Ceilings with exposed pipes or beams
- Exposed recreation areas such as tennis courts that require protection prior to play
- Vulnerable wildlife
- And many, many others
