Bird Proofing

Bird Proofing

Pest birds can cause a whole host of problems for your business. They are a health and safety risk, they spread diseases, they can cause damage to property and goods, and they can be noisy and aggressive. 


So how can you keep your premises free of pest birds? Contego can help. 


How we can help

We have unrivalled experience in proofing buildings against pest birds like pigeons, gulls, and starlings. Our experience ranges from working on complex sites like rail platforms, power stations, petrol station and chemical plants, as well as hundreds of supermarket stores. 


Every site is different, so we think outside the box.

When we survey a site, we take every possible proofing system or combination of possible solutions into account before we give you our recommendations. Our estimators and surveyors will ensure that your options not only protect your premises from pest birds but meet your access and aesthetic requirements. 


We understand bird behaviour.

Because we understand site bird pressure and how to displace them, we’ll provide you with a bird-proofing solution that is:

Case Studies

firegel bird control

York Art Gallery

Contego recently installed ‘fire gel’ anti pigeon system to York Art Gallery, part of the £8 million refurbishment project that has recently been completed. We are pleased to have played a part in protecting this magnificent building for future generations.

Like many city-centre buildings, the gallery was very attractive to pigeons who regularly "painted" the roof and walls with their droppings. The building itself dates from 1879, and is a Grade 2 listed building, so we needed to pigeon-proof the roof and ledges, without causing any change to the building's appearance.

Bird proofing at supermarket

As part of a major re-development of ASDA, Eastlands Contego were appointed to conduct the bird netting on the project. The project was completed in two phases, phase 1 – removal of all old netting (two front entrance canopies & side canopy – as pictured above). The old netting was removed to allow for decoration works to be conducted. Phase 2 was the installation of new wire system in which new white 19mm netting was re-installed to the areas over 1500SQM.


All works were completed on time and ready for the store hand over in July 2016.


Full RAMS and work plans were provided to the client prior to work.

Roof Protection From Nesting Birds

Bird Proofing - Roof Net - Sea Gulls

Contego were approcached by an existing client to help protect one of their roofs from nesting birds - Sea gulls.

The solution to their problem was the installation of 75mm bird netting to prevent birds accessing the roof area. The 75mm netting was supported by a series of brackets installed at 5M intervals around the perimeter of the roof and 1M free standing posts. As standard we install our netting systems in stainless steel.

Two man safe anchor decks were required as part of the installation due to height of the wall.
