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 the crops. For example starlings, black birds, crows, geese, and more frugivorous avians, are considered pest birds.

They attack the harvested goods, 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 harvest. Therefore farmers need to use an extra amount of pesticides to get rid of them. Consequently, the yield cannot be sold as biological.

Pigeons control

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. 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 dirty. Especially they like to occupy ventilation machineries and drainage systems.
