Is your pet fascinated with birds?  Are birds something that fascinate your pup or cat to the point of anxiety? Are you wondering whether anti-bird netting actually works? Is this going to be durable and strong enough to prevent pigeons, gulls and other birds from invading your property? Often, there are misconceptions when it comes to netting and what it is able to do. Indeed, there are people that believe it will not be a long-lasting and capable solution if birds are roosting on ledges, windowsills and roofs.

But, we are going to clear up all of those rumours. In fact, we want to make it very clear that anti-bird netting is a popular solution for many reasons and it might be just what you need if you have a bird problem brewing. So, here is a quick and easy guide to understanding anti-bird netting.

What is Anti-Bird Netting?

First of all, if you have never seen anti-bird netting before, you will not be aware of what it looks like. Well, it all starts with a framework cable that is going to be fixed onto your building. These cables are tensioned and the netting is fixed onto them. You can click here to learn more about how this works from Apex Bird control. The netting can be a variety of sizes so that it can deter different bird species.

When a professional bird company installs a netting system, it will have a bespoke design. This means that you can ensure it covers all of the vulnerable areas of your building where birds will gather. This can include windowsills, roofs and other ledges that offer shelter from the elements.

How Does it Stop Birds from Nesting?

Now that you have a better idea of what anti-bird netting looks like, you will want to know how it operates. How can netting stop birds from roosting and nesting on your building? Well, it is simple. The netting is used to block off areas that birds will want to land on. It acts as a barrier they cannot get through and they will move on somewhere else. 

For example, if you have a roof, you can use anti-bird netting to deter them from using it. Since they cannot access the area, they will find another spot where there is food nearby or shelter. Hopefully, this is not on your property.

Thus, the birds will not be hurt by a netting system. Instead, it is just a deterrent that will stop them from landing on your building. So, you can have peace of mind and know that you are choosing an effective and humane measure. It simply makes areas of your building inaccessible to birds. There is no pain or discomfort used for deterrence.

Is This Solution Durable?

Having a professional bird company out to fit anti-bird netting means paying a good amount of money. So, a lot of people want reassurance that this solution will last a long time and be up to the job. Indeed, there are some speculate that netting is not a material that is tough and durable. However, this is not true.

In fact, netting is a very good material to use as a barrier for birds. It is constructed from long-lasting materials that are meant to deal with British weather. So, it is not going to rot or weaken over time. Instead, it keeps birds out on a permanent basis. What’s more, experts are going to use fixings that are strong and long-lasting. So, ensure that you choose a professional bird company to install the netting system for longevity. They will also make sure that the netting system is installed safely and will not come away from your building in bad weather or after being exposed to the different seasons.

Will You See Anti-Bird Netting?

Nobody wants to ruin the aesthetic of their building. So, they do not want a netting system installed if it is going to look hideous and eye-catching. Well, the good news is that this is not the case with professional installation. Instead, anti-bird netting is renowned for being discreet and subtle.

The netting is often a similar color to your building. You can select one that you like and that you feel will not stand out. So, this means that it can cover desirable bird spots without becoming an obvious feature. In particular, when it is used high up on your building, it is not going to be obvious to see. Just make sure that you choose the right color so that you can make it a subtle addition.
