Who are Flygreen?

Below is an overview of Flygreen and how we will be able to help you with your pest bird problem.

We are a small personal avian pest control business who take a green approach to our work.

Flygreen have 18 years of experience using birds of prey to control avian pests such as pigeons, seagulls, crows, starlings & sparrows.

Birds of Prey are natural predators that provoke a natural fear response from the pest bird, often with immediate results. The birds we use are trained not to catch the pest bird only to deter it from the immediate area.

We have found that trapping is very labour intensive and causes a vacuum effect – as pest birds disappear in the local area, more move in to fill their place. Shooting has very much the same effect plus it can be dangerous and is often not viewed favourably by the public and the same is true of poisons.

Experience has shown an initial 7 to 10 day intensive flying in order to instil fear, thereafter, twice a week during the breeding season and once a week during Autumn and Winter is usually effective for most situations.

We use Owls, Hawks and Falcons depending on the situation and pest to be controlled.

The Dangers

Whilst Pest Birds will probably not end up like this, they do bring risks.

Pest birds understandably gravitate towards warm dry places where they can set up home. These are often near air intakes and so the risk of disease is soon established when they move in. This risk only grows over time as their faeces build up which creates another health hazard for those who eventually have o clear up. At the same time they are acidic so over time corrode metal etc often creating costly repair bills.

The faeces often end up on walk ways and in public areas as the birds become established and move around creating both a risk of slipping and a further health risk.
