Pest control should be monitored and implemented in a timely fashion. Birds are the most regular offenders with the likes of pigeons and seagulls leaving droppings, or nesting on buildings.
Bird droppings are not only unsightly, they cause a chemical reaction to buildings if not cleared. Nests cause blocked gutters and drains which lead to water damage on buildings.
Prevention is the key to long term pest control solutions. The Orb Rope Access team, as experts at height, are trained to install bird netting and spikes to prevent birds leaving droppings or nesting on buildings, thereby making sure the problem doesn’t reoccur.
Health and safety should be a major consideration when combatting pest control. Leaving the problem to get worse puts workers, the public and buildings at risk.
