Bird control starts establishing why they are there

Birds are one of those annoying pests that are hard to get rid of in Hobart. Many locals have tried multiple ways to make them move on, but with little or no success.

Throwing things at them, or chasing them with a broom is what most people try. While it may seem to work initially, it will not have a lasting effect.

Some birds, like feral pigeons, are not the sharpest tool in the shed. They will eventually get used to the simple techniques that people try, and basically start to ignore all their efforts.

When it reaches this stage, that’s when Jim’s Pest Control Hobart is called.

If the birds are nesting or sheltering in or on your building, you will need the help of an expert. Knowing what type of bird you have, and their behaviours, will help to move the pest on.

For instance, applying bird spikes may stop them roosting in one spot, but they will soon find another area close by. Often you will end up chasing them around the structure with spikes.

A Jim’s pest professional will preempt what they do next. Our techs will then deploy products into all their nesting and shelter places.

We may even choose the option of netting a large area to completely remove their access.

It does not mater what bird species you have, we will have a solution for you, that will also match your budget.

It is important to note that some bird species are protected and cannot be interfered with. Your local Jim’s professional will know which ones these are.

Do plastic owls work?

Plastic owls work on the theory that a large predatory bird will scare smaller birds away. While this will initially work, they will eventually get used to it.

Of course a plastic owl does not move, so birds will eventually work out it is no threat to them. Manufacturers of these owls know this and have tried to make improvements, such as making their heads move. They have even gone to the extent of using red lights for their eyes.

But as the owl does not move its location, it will not have the desired effect.

Our local techs have even spotted pigeons cuddling up to these plastic owls, which makes for a funny photo.
