Choosing the Right Heavy Duty Bird Netting to Exclude Pest Birds

Choosing the Right Heavy Duty Bird Netting to Exclude Pest Birds

Posted on May 16, 2014 by Alex Kecskes in Bird Netting

Airport hangars and large warehouses with large doorways that remain open most of the time will invariably draw pest birds. These winged intruders will seek the lofty beams and upper spaces of a structure to build nests and roost. Once they've established themselves, they're not only difficult to remove but will draw other bird pests to compound the problem. And the problems are many. Bird nests interfere with lighting and maintenance operations. Bird droppings can eat into wiring and cause electrical shorts. This debris can also fall into machinery, parts and sub-assemblies, creating maintenance and repair issues down the line. Bird droppings can even create dangerous slip-and-fall hazards for workers and visitors.

While some hangars and warehouses use bird spikes to prevent bird pests from landing, and others use sonic systems to scare birds, many have found that excluding pest birds using quality bird netting works best for their particular bird problem. Through the years, bird netting has been shown to successfully exclude pest birds in a humane and effective manner. But which bird netting is best for the particular bird invading your hangar or warehouse? Some suggestions from the bird control experts at Bird-B-Gone:
