How to Prevent Birds from Nesting in Your Office Buildings

Birds can be quite an issue for any business. They can be noisy, cause a mess and even pose a potential health hazard.

Pigeons and seagulls are the usual suspects that nest frequently, even more so in cities and towns. Removing birds in these cases is more difficult when considering the following factors:

  • Pigeons can breed all year round if they find enough food (peaking between March and July)
  • Seagulls will return to the same nesting site year after year, so once they are established, they can be difficult to get rid of.
