Since the 1800's people introduced birds that they thought could be domesticated for food or sport, others as an attempt for biological control of insects. However most of the introduced birds are now pests which need to be controlled.
They have adapted very well to the environment and we have added to the problem by providing an abundance of food and shelter for nesting and roosting. Deliberately feeding or allowing birds to feed from rubbish areas also adds to the problem.
Over the past number of years feral bird management has become a large problem in the urban and rural environment with populations steadily increasing.
Some of the feral bird species are responsible for the spread of bird diseases and can cause of health issues in humans.
We have seen an increase in the displacement of our native bird populations due to the aggressive nature and nesting habits of these birds.
We employ a variety of materials and methods to counter these feral invaders such as :- Physical Barriers (bird netting, bird spike and track systems). Chemical Baits and Gels. Trapping. Trained Dogs. Vigilante Helikites and Eco Hawk Kites. Vigilante Helikites are superb for scaring flocks of pest birds as it is able to enter their safe flight zone (Zero to 200 ft.) and mimics predator birds hovering and swooping. We are the Australian distributors of Vigilante Helikites and Eco Hawk Kites we do supply directly to users. Lethal destruction (shooting). This has an instant effect on the bird population and has been used many times in commercial warehouses. At times, this is the only practical solution. We often subcontract to other pest control companies as we are fully licenced and have the experience to conduct this type of pest management.
Main species include :- Feral Pigeon (Colomba livia) Indian Myna (Acridotheres tristis) Sparrows (Passer domesticus) Starlings (Stumus vulgaris) Peacocks (Pavo afropavo) Little Corella (Cacatua sanguinea) Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita)
