bird control: solution for the presence of crows and pigeons in workplaces

The presence of crows and pigeons in urban areas is becoming increasingly significant and difficult to manage, especially to maintain the hygiene of the environment and avoid unpleasant incidents due to the birds' territorial behaviour. However, companies have been trying to curb this problem: How?

The methods used by companies to control crows and pigeons.

Several techniques are used.

The most common method to limit the accumulation of pigeons on buildings is the installation of mechanical needle bollards: iron needles that are theoretically supposed to scare away the flying birds. In practice, however, they do not have the desired effect. First, the pigeons gather on these "metal spikes" and build their nests between them, creating an even more stable tangle of twigs and foliage. Secondly, the sharp materials may injure them, leading to unnecessary suffering and an even greater spread of disease.

Die zweite Methode ist die Verwendung von Taubenabwehrnetzen, die nicht nur ästhetisch unattraktiv sind, sondern auch noch gefährlicher als die oben beschriebenen Metallspieße. Tatsächlich versuchen viele Vögel, vor allem kleinere, durch die Löcher im Netz zu gelangen und bleiben darin gefangen. Auch Raubvögel verfangen sich oft mit ihren Krallen und Beinen in den Drähten. Beide Situationen führen zu einer unmenschlichen Konsequenz: einem langsamen und schmerzhaften Tod.

Die neueste Technik, die von den Unternehmen eingesetzt wird, ist die Einführung des funkgesteuerten Adlers: eine Kopie eines größeren Vogels, der laut mit den Flügeln schlägt, um Krähen und Tauben zu verscheuchen. Obwohl dieses Verfahren zunächst wirksam zu sein scheint, erweist es sich nach kurzer Zeit als völlig nutzlos: Krähen und Tauben sind intelligent genug, um zu erkennen, dass der Vogel nicht echt ist und lernen schnell, ihn zu ignorieren.

All other attempts to drive away pesky birds have failed over the years; the only certainty is that they are extremely expensive methods.

All other attempts to drive away pesky birds have failed over the years; the only certainty is that they are extremely expensive methods.

We have learned a combination of ancient falconry techniques and innovative training to enable our team of raptors to hunt and intimidate nuisance birds in both urban and agricultural environments.

Thanks to our intervention, which includes two phases, a first intensive phase for two hours six days a week and a second maintenance phase that is more sporadic but regular, the presence of crows and pigeons will soon be just a distant memory.

There are hawks and owls of different sizes, trained for different purposes: The former, depending on their species and size, are used in small, medium and large areas to scare away birds or to hunt weaker prey because of their animal instinct; the latter, very large birds of prey with a truly exceptional wingspan, have the peculiarity of being nocturnal animals, which are therefore the ideal solution for disturbing the resting time of crows and pigeons during twilight.
