I’ve been flying and training hawks for pest control for 22 years. I’ve lived, breathed it and devoted my life to understanding bird behaviour. This is what makes Contego the leading falconry services provider in the
UK. But are hawks the magic answer to every pest bird problem?
The simple answer is no. Birds of prey like the falcons and hawks we use at Contego are a real asset to the team. The flying of birds of prey is the only bird control method that’s scientifically proven that pest birds do not habituate to. When birds of prey are flown in the right situations and at regular intervals, they can disrupt and disperse pest birds like no other method can, however, using them on an irregular basis or as a one-off solution on a single day won’t have any long-term effect on a population of resident pest birds.
Our birds are trained to fly indoors and outdoors, and they are particularly effective at dispersing pigeons, gulls, and starlings. Our team of hawks and falcons are pest control trained to fly in any situation, so they’re perfect for a range of sites. We currently operate falconry services in high-security hospitals and prisons, football stadiums, landfill sites, factories, docks, and marinas.
But at Contego, we don’t rely solely on birds of prey to do the job. We look at the whole picture and come up with a bird management and control plan that we know will work for you.
Whether it’s dispersal techniques like bioacoustic species-specific distress calls, lures, lasers, or visual deterrents that are best for your site, we’ll provide you with the most efficient and cost-effective solution to your pest bird problem.
Hawks might not be the magic answer, but they’re a good place to start.
