How to Get Rid of Birds

Identify Your Pest

There are birds and there are pest birds. Understanding this is very important in how to control birds in your property.

Recognising the signs of a serious problem and getting an immediate solution can drastically reduce the length of time needed to effectively control pest birds.

The longer birds are allowed to nest or roost in an unwanted area, the harder it will be to remove them. For example, pigeons are gregarious creatures living in flocks of anywhere between 50 and 500, so a small problem has the potential to turn into a large infestation.

Pest birds are Pigeons, Seagulls, House Sparrows, Indian Mynas and Starlings that all have their unique appearance.

Choose Your Method

DIY or Professional?

When it comes to getting rid of birds, you have two basic options: DIY or hire a professional.

The DIY option requires you to purchase and correctly use bird control products.

The professional option requires you to to hire a pest controller to get rid of the problem for you.


  • DIY Bird Control Options

    DIY bird control is not recommended.

    Bird control can be complicated due to the severity of the problem and the location. There are differing laws and regulations in each state and territory on what species are protected and what species are considered as pest birds. The method of control legally allowed can also differ from state to state.

    How to Get Rid of Birds in Your Business

    Pest birds can be a real problem for any business. Not only do they cause a mess, but they can also be a health hazard – and a little frightening.

    Pigeons and seagulls are normally the worst culprits, especially in towns and cities. Bird removal in these cases is made more difficult by a number of factors:

    • Pigeons natural food is grain and seeds but they adapt to urban areas by scavenging processed food, such as discarded takeaways and food waste from dustbins.
    • If they can find enough food pigeons breed the whole year round, with a peak between March and July.
    • Seagulls will return year after year to the same nesting site, so once they’re established they’re hard to get rid of.
    • Seagulls can live a long time - up to 40 years - during which time they can keep on breeding.

  • How To Choose your Pest Control Professional

    To find the right professional pest control company, you need to ensure the entire organisation, as well as the pest control technicians are able to fulfill key criteria.

    You should expect the same level of competence and duty of care as provided by any other professional service provider.

    A good pest partner should be able to anticipate and answer all your health and safety concerns. Services and treatments should be tailored to suit your needs as much as possible.

    Crucially a professional should also respect your home, property or business site and operate with the greatest care and attention. He or she should be able to voice any challenges or restrictions right from the start. Equally, as a customer, you should always feel able to voice any concerns and ask as many questions as you need to.

    Key criteria for Selection:

    1. Certifications - licenses and certifications will demonstrate that your treatments are carried out to the highest industry standard practices.
    2. Affiliated associations - membership of recognised industry associations such as the Australian Environmental Pest Managers Association will ensure your services are provided by a trained, insured and trusted company, which has to comply with strict membership criteria.
    3. Personal recommendations - even today, word-of-mouth and personal recommendations can be more powerful than a company’s own word. Speak to neighbours, peers, friends or family to find out about customer satisfaction.
    4. Transparency - complete honesty and transparency early-on regarding the cost, level and duration of treatment required will help you see if the company is reliable.
    5. Expertise & experience - a well established, recognised company can offer a peace of mind in the services provided and its relationship with customers.
