Posted on May 17, 2014 by Alex Kecskes in Bird Control

Pest birds, like pigeons often roost and nest on the open beams, catwalks, towers, pipes and ledges of an industrial plant. Without an effective pigeon repellent to keep them away, these pest birds will gather in increasing numbers. In just a short while, their nests, droppings and debris will accumulate to cause all sorts of costly headaches for facilities mangers.

Bird droppings, for example, can result in considerable damage to valves, controls, gauges, switches and other mechanical and electrical components. Pigeon droppings are very slippery when wet. This can create, dangerous slip-and-fall hazards for workers on catwalks, steps and ladders. Bird droppings also carry dangerous diseases, which can reduce the effective workforce in your plant.

Fortunately,the bird control experts at Bird-B-Gone have a number of effective and humane pigeon repellents to keep your industrial plant pigeon free.
