Helping Clients Reach Long Term Bird Solutions

Jan 6, 2014

Specializing in Pest Bird solutions is not a term that we use as a marketing strategy or a ploy to gain the business of companies that need Pest Bird help. Specializing in Pest Bird Solutions to us means applying a Problem Solving process to define and analyze a problem, develop and apply solutions, and measure the effectiveness of that solution towards the overall goals of the business. All Pest Bird situations are different and whether you are dealing with Pigeons, Swallows, Geese, Gulls, Starlings, or other bird species, the project must include a safe and humane approach while considering other factors such as financial and legal elements. Our Pest Bird Specialists undergo extensive training and certification by world renowned pest bird product providers.

During our 27 years as pest bird solution specialists, we have never had a situation where we were not able to effectively solve a Pest Bird Problem. This was no different when we were asked by one of our many major industrial clients to assist with a problem that was long standing and not solved by previous vendor attempts. The Pest Bird was Barn Swallows and the issue was their entry and presence in the Warehouse starting in April through to late summer.

The Barn Swallow is a medium-sized songbird (about 15 to 18 centimetres long). Males have a glossy steel-blue back and upper wings, a rusty-red forehead and throat, a short bill and a broad blue breast band above its tawny underbelly. The male has long tail feathers which form a distinctive, deep fork and a line of white spots across the outer end of the upper tail. The female’s tail feathers are shorter, the blue of her upper parts and breast band are less glossy, and her underside is paler.

Barn Swallows can be a nuisance in Industrial/ Commercial settings due to their nesting habits. Their mud nests damage and deface outer walls and ceilings while their feces can end up on finished product or raw materials creating obvious health and safety problems. Parasites can also be associated with the nests.

Barn Swallows have special protection under Canadian law and only a permitted company like Greenshield Pest Control can disturb them once they have built their nest. The Barn Swallow is very territorial and will always attempt to come back to the same nesting site. It is for this reason that a long term solution was developed using an audio deterrent and in this case the Bird Gard Pro was used. It is a programmable electronic repeller that uses a variety of distress signals and predator calls to send danger alerts to birds. The Bird Gard Pro is a very effective audio device primarily used for Starlings, Swallows, Sparrows, Pigeons and Gulls.

Following the installation of 3 Bird Gard Pro audio deterrent systems by our certified technicians – the presence of pest Swallows in the Warehouse is non-existent. An effective, long term and humane approach to a long standing Pest Bird problem.
