Bird Control Details


The use of bird netting is our most popular method of bird prevention. This system is used to eliminate birds from external plant rooms on roofs, perching on ledges and stop roosting on window ledges. With our expert installers correct installation is long lasting and is virtually undetectable from the ground below.

The type of material used to produce bird netting is made of either knotted polyethylene or knotless polypropylene, both of which are:

  • Extremely Durable
  • UV Light Stabilised
  • Chemically Inert
  • Can be made Fire Retardant to BS 5827 PART2

There is also a choice of colours for your preventative netting scheme to ensure it blends in to your building and does not detract from its appearance:

  • Black
  • Stone
  • Translucent


This particular system of prevention is achieved by upright splayed wires attached to a UV -stabilised clear polycarbonate base. This is usually installed with the aid of a silicone adhesive or other suitable fixings. When installed it makes landing on a protected surface extremely uncomfortable or impossible for the birds.

Since UK law protects all wild birds the tips of the points are cut flat to prevent injury not only to the birds but also to the installer. This system works best when installed to buildings suffering low to medium bird pressure although; in certain high pressure situations this system can still have the desired effect. However heavily populated flocks may attempt to break down this system.


Being extremely versatile this system can be installed anywhere on a building including window ledges, wide or delicate ledges, gutters, beams, pipes, rails, signs and roof ridges.

The concept is to install a stainless steel post into the structure and attach a thin strand of stainless steel wire, tensioned with a spring, just above a ledge or other feature used by the pest birds in question, so that they are prevented from perching. Several strands may be used to create an exclusion zone to these pest birds.

The stainless steel posts may be installed by means of drilling into the structure or by using an architectural adhesive, where the structure is delicate: such as period stonework or where lead flashing exists.

There are also bases available that can be positioned using strong adhesive to prevent drilling in delicate areas such as UPVc windows and lead flashing.

Fouling Clearance Services

Before Avalon arrive on site quite often the damage has already been done - with birds creating dangerous excrement containing bacteria, insects and harmful pathogens. We undertake many clearances every week, taking a dangerous environment and turning it into an area that is safe once again for human contact. Anti-bacterial spray treatments are carried out and all bird related debris is removed from site. Most importantly the area is left bird proofed using exclusion methods.
