PROBLEM:      Guano contaminated store front entrance due to feral pigeon infestation.

The store front entrance was infested with feral pigeons roosting and nesting in the void above the front canopy and on the metal beams behind the front store sign.

The resulting bird droppings on the pavement below and entrance doors were having having to be cleaned each morning. There were many pigeon nests under the front canopy and in addition to the guano contamination, there was a risk of nest dwelling textile pests such as clothes moths and carpet beetle causing damage to the store stock.


SOLUTION  Stage 1 –   Remove nests, decontaminate and remove guano build up.  Clean guano staining on store sign.                                                                                                       Stage 2 –  Install bird proofing measures.

Stage 1 – A thorough decontamination was carried out from roof to ground level. Working from a mobile access platform, a two man team wearing disposable coveralls, p3 respirators, goggles, gloves, hard hats, high vis vests, safety shoes and full safety harnesses had to firstly spray the work areas with a biocide spray.  The biocide we use is called Px-Ornikill and is specifically for the use of decontaminating bird droppings, it eliminates the pathogens that cause bird to human related diseases.

The guano and nests were then removed using small shovels and brushes and bagged up in strong rubble sacks which were then cable tied.  Staining on the front and rear of the store sign was also cleaned.

Stage 2 – Anti pigeon netting was installed to the rear of the sign and to the sides of the roof canopy where the birds were gaining entry. Pigeon spiking was fitted to the front sign using a high tack silicone adhesive.


One of our staff was shopping at the store last November 2017 and had a check of our bird deterrents.  Nine years on, our work is in good order.  The bird deterrent installations are doing their job and the store is still bird free.

At Birdteq we have pride in our work, every installation is completed to give results for the long term.
