Hygiene & Bugs R Us - Bird Control

What is Eagle Eye?

 

The Eagle Eye™ bird scarer is an effective bird deterrent device that harmlessly relocates birds. Birds are irritated by reflected light beams that flash at various angles from a rotating Eagle Eye™ unit. The system has been extensively tested and used on hundreds of locations in South Africa as well as Internationally. Facilities and situations include resorts, food production facilities, waste treatment plants, correctional facilities, hospitals, libraries, government buildings, tourist facilities, golf courses, bowling greens, and horticultural crops to name but a few. The species of pest birds now being deterred by Eagle Eye in South Africa is extensive.

 

Eagle Eyes have been used extensively in South Africa and are the original home of Eagle Eye having been developed and tested. Extensive trials and now commercial use has been very successful in a wide variety of commercial and cropping situations. South African success stories have been included on this site to give access to information on this exiting product range.

Bird scarer

Feral Pigeon (Columia livia)

 

Feral PigeonThe Feral pigeon is a wide spread, common urban pest bird. They have short legs with level front and hind toes, which enable them to walk on flat surfaces as well as perch on branches.

Habitat

 

Mostly found in urban or suburban areas

Especially centre of larger cities and railway yards (rarely farmland)

Prefer small flat areas away from the ground like protected ledges and rooftops.

Popular nesting places includes: building ledges, bridge supports, air conditioning units and above windows.

 

Breeding

 

Mating pair has 3-4 broods per year

Female lays 2-3 eggs at a time

Eggs take 18 days to hatch

Fledglings leave nest after 35 days

Although they mostly build simple nests from a few stiff twigs, some will lay eggs directly on a protected ledge.

They like to make nests in and on manmade structures

 

Damage

 

Uric acids in feces are highly corrosive: Feces cause damage to waterproofing of roofs causing leaks; feces damage paint work of automobiles with regular/long contact; feces also damage air conditioning units and solar panels.

Built up feces can lead to structural damage and blocked gutters.

Degrading the aesthetics of potentially neat and beautiful buildings.

Pigeons may cause a health risk when HACP standards are not met by food processing companies as a result of birds entering factories and warehouses: bird droppings damage and infest raw materials, products in process and finished goods

Nests near electrical points/lines or in chimneys are a great fire hazard.

Bacteria, fungal agents and ectoparasites in droppings may be a health risk.

 

Control Using Eagle Eye

 

The Eagle Eye is a very effective feral pigeon deterrent. It will deter a large number of roosting and nesting birds from buildings as well as open spaces. The feral pigeon is very sensitive to the Eagle Eye.

Hartlaub's Gull (Larushartlaubii)

 

Sea gullThe Hartlaub's Gull is an indigenous tame sea bird, increasing in numbers. They often hang around gardens, parks and restaurants for scraps. They also follow fishing vessels looking for scraps, or follow ploughs looking for soil invertebrates. Those in urban areas will catch insects at street lights at night. Roosts on roofs, hedges or islands.

Habitat

 

Seashores, offshore islands, city centres, rubbish dumps, cultivated farmland and estuaries.

Search human inhabitations like parks and restaurants for scraps of food.

 

Breeding

 

Roosts on rooftops, ledges and islands.

Nest made of twigs and shells

Cultch: 1-3 (in some cases up to 5-8)

 

Damage

 

Uric acids in feces are highly corrosive: Feces cause damage to waterproofing of roofs causing leaks; feces damage paint work of automobiles with regular/long contact; feces also damage air conditioning units and solar panels.

Degrading the aesthetics of potentially neat and beautiful buildings.

May cause a health risk when HACP standards are not met by food processing companies as a result of birds entering factories and warehouses: bird droppings damage and infest raw materials, products in process and finished goods

Nests near electrical points/lines or in chimneys are a great fire hazard.

Bacteria, fungal agents and ectoparasites in droppings may be a health risk.

When they move in flocks the buildup of their feces has a great impact on buildings

Often dive down, grabbing fisherman's fish or scraps of food from people

 

Control Using Eagle Eye

 

Roosting gulls are easily deterred with the Eagle Eye. Nesting gulls are more reluctant to leave. Their instinct for food is greater than their fear for the Eagle Eye and therefore all food sources must be removed.

Bird Control

We also do bird proofing and removal as well as the following .Netting, spikes, Flax and sound systems and bird lice and cleaning of bird poop areas.
