Bird Control & Proofing Service

While many birds are perfectly harmless, pest birds such as pigeons and seagulls can cause damage to commercial properties and even transmit diseases. Not only are they an issue to people’s health, but they can also put your business at risk. 

As well as being a general nuisance, birds on your property can spread diseases such as salmonella and damage both buildings and vehicles. Their unpleasant droppings can also lead to additional insect infestations or create a slippery and smelly health and safety hazard for your staff and customers. 

Here at VermEx we are very experienced in all types of bird control and can employ a range of bird deterrent products that we can supply and install. Bird deterrent spikes are made from a polycarbonate base and stainless steel spikes that are installed on ledges and window sills. These anti-bird spikes are designed to prevent birds from perching on the ledge. 

Bird netting is one of the most effective bird repeller methods. The net doesn’t harm the birds, but it is very effective in removing roosting and nesting opportunities which will help to keep your business bird free. 

If you notice any of the warning signs such as nesting material strewn around your property, bad odours or an increase in bird droppings or insects you may well have a bird problem that needs dealing with. Contact VermEx today by phone on 01904 798676, by email at

    Feral pigeons are found all over the UK, especially in cities and towns where the pigeon can enjoy the scraps of food and rubbish that is left on the ground by people. While pigeons aren’t an aggressive bird, they can present problems when they flock in large numbers. Pigeon droppings can cause damage to buildings as it is erosive in nature. 

    Anti-pigeon spikes are a great way to protect your commercial premises from pigeon droppings. The spikes work as a pigeon deterrent and prevent them from roosting on the ledges of your building, which helps keep your walls free from pigeon droppings. At VermEx, we also specialise in the removal, cleaning up and treatment of bird-related waste.

    Pigeon Proofing Solar Panels

    Many businesses are making use of solar panels to provide their buildings with electricity. Unfortunately, nesting birds are also taking advantage of this new technology. Pigeons, in particular, are nesting and roosting in the space under solar panels. This can easily result in the birds damaging the wiring or even the panels themselves. 

    In addition, debris such as feathers and nesting materials can reduce the efficiency of the solar panels, which means they will provide less power. Bird faeces is also corrosive. The best way to ensure your solar panels are protected is to have them pigeon proofed with a mesh. This will prevent birds from accessing the area beneath the solar panels, keeping them free from damage and work efficiently.


    Seagulls are a big problem for businesses, especially those involved in food manufacturing or distribution. Seagulls will often return to the same nesting site each year if they are allowed to become established. That’s why early action is so important. Thankfully, there are ways to make your premises less attractive to pest birds like seagulls.

    Bird and fence spikes are a common tool in repelling birds like seagulls and are designed to prevent them from perching near your property. Anti seagull spikes are an effective and affordable countermeasure that doesn’t harm the birds. In addition, Removing access to bins and rubbish helps to discourage seagulls from scavenging near your business.
