The signage industry has as particular vested interest in protecting their signs from defacement and damage. After all, it’s the sign that reflects a company’s image. And in many cases, the location of signs means they’re costly to repair or replace.
Birds often roost or nest in and around signs, billboards, and channel letters because the high perches offer a good vantage point for predators and food sources. Birds will also nest between billboards and inside of channel letters.
Bird droppings not only deface signs with unattractive streaks, but the acidic nature of droppings can “eat” into and permanently damage signs made of steel, plastic, glass, even stonework. Bird nesting materials make excellent kindling and many signs have caught fire when heated bulbs or electrical wiring came in contact with feathers and twigs in bird nests.
Proactive Bird Control is Best
Ideally, bird control measures should be installed when the signs go up. This proactive approach is the best and most economical way to prevent sign defacement and damage. The next best tactic is to deter birds as soon as they’re noticed, for the longer they’re allowed to inhabit an area, the more difficult it will be to remove them. Fortunately, most signage contractors already have access to special tools and lift equipment, so installing bird deterrents on signage is both simplified and economical.
