FALCONRY Introducing birds of prey to an established roosting area can have an immediate and positive effect, it significantly reduces the number of nesting debris and guano from the area. Our Bird of Prey Pest Control Programme involves several visits from our in-house falconer Ryan and his team of birds of prey to the effected site throughout the year.

Ryan works closely with our customers to put a plan in place regarding the number of flights required to achieve the best results for your commercial and organisation site. Each bird species requires different approaches to successfully deter nuisance birds from a specific area.

Regular visits will reduce the amount of guano, feathers and nesting material around your business. Sites with a well-established ’resident’ bird population may take numerous visits to ensure the nesting bird population has been significantly reduced. The birds of prey are not trained to kill the pest birds, but simply to discourage infestations away by being present.
