Pigeon and Seagull Deterrent Installation in Swansea Completed
The Coastal Housing Group develops homes and communities across Swansea and Neath Port Talbot. Part of Coastal Housing's £25 million regeneration development programme in the centre of Swansea is the Urban Village so they moved their Head Office to a new office space to High Street, Swansea, as part of this exciting new development.
Swansea not only has a thriving population of Herring and Lesser Black Backed Gulls but also has a long-standing problem with feral pigeons. As a result, the High Street has become one of the main focal points for these bird pests: the large amount of activity and food build up makes it an ideal place to feed and nest.
Our bird control works involved a combination of different bird control systems to target aspects of the building design that were perfect for the birds to perch, congregate and nest. Our Birdpoint bird spikes were used on narrow ledges and areas where the birds could easily land and perch, such as roof top copings and ridges. Next, our Birdnet anti bird netting system was installed to seal off voids leading down into the building and sheltered areas of the roof and upper elevations.
Our bird deterrent systems will now not only prevent pigeons and gulls from perching on the buildings but nesting too. This in turn eliminates the risk of nest build up and possible blocking of the high-level drainage problem.
David Harry, Wales and West Contracts Manager for Eco Environmental Services Ltd, commented "Coastal Housing are behind a lot of the good schemes in and around Swansea at the moment and we were delighted to have the opportunity to work with Coastal on this prestigious development for Swansea.”
