Avian bird control is a major concern both in urban and in rural areas. In fact, even if birds can be useful to maintain the right balance of insects in the cultivated fields, they can also be very dangerous. Essentially they move in large groups and frequently massively assault crops. For example starlings, black birds, crows, geese and more frugivorous avians, are considered pest birds.

Hungry birds attack the harvested goods or fruit trees ready to be harvested, provoking partial or total losses. Basically most of the time birds eat part of the fruit, causing holes. These damages provoke the gradual decomposition of the crop. Therefore farmers need to use an extra amount of pesticides to get rid of them. Consequently, the yield cannot be sold as biological at a higher price.  Noise guns, scarecrows, plastic owls or falcons, ultrasonic scare devices are totally useless when it comes to trying to keep birds off your fields, as they become accustomed to the intervals, and presence of

Avian bird control using netting is efficient also against pigeons. Pigeon control is a serious problem in urban and suburban areas.

Actually pigeons are attracted by food as they are effective scavengers. In addition they are not afraid of humans. So they use to nest over the buildings, on attics, roofs, and semi open zones. When they access the properties, they roost and will soil and degrade any surface they spend time on. Pigeons especially like to occupy ventilation machinery and drainage systems.

The acid substance contained in the droppings cause permanent cracks on any kind of surface. All in all a huge expense is daily dedicated to clean and repair pigeons damages. To stop pigeons entering any space it is recommended to install GUACAMALLAS avian bird control net.
