Birds are beautiful creatures as we all know, however in the wrong location they can unfortunately become a pest. Pigeons and corvids such as Crows, Rooks and Magpies can become a real nuisance for your home and business and seriously affect your reputation. Damage to roof tiles, blocked guttering can be expensive to repair.
Birds attract insects such as mites, fleas and and beetles which are then transported to roosting and nesting sites. Fouling and mess can deface the front of your business or property and can cause serious health and safety issues such as slipping, due to bird fouling on entrances and walkways, diseases like E. coli and Salmonella all also major concerns.

Birds, also known as Aves, are a group of endothermic vertebrates, characterised by feathers, toothless beaked jaws, the laying of hard-shelled eggs, a high metabolic rate, a four-chambered heart, and a strong yet lightweight skeleton. Birds live worldwide and range in size from the 5 cm (2 in) bee hummingbird to the 2.75 m (9 ft) ostrich.
They rank as the world’s most numerically-successful class of tetrapods, with approximately ten thousand living species, more than half of these being passerines, sometimes known as perching birds.

Birds have wings which are more or less developed depending on the species; the only known groups without wings are the extinct moa and elephant birds. Wings, which evolved from forelimbs, gave birds the ability to fly, although further evolution has led to the loss of flight in flightless birds, including ratites, penguins, and diverse endemic island species of birds.
The digestive and respiratory systems of birds are also uniquely adapted for flight. Some bird species of aquatic environments, particularly seabirds and some waterbirds, have further evolved for swimming.
