Bird Control Brisbane
Bird Control Brisbane – Expert Services
Birds can cause significant damage to both residential and commercial buildings. Their droppings corrode surfaces and they represent a significant health hazard. The Pest Doctors utilise a range of humane exclusion techniques to protect buildings and solar panels from bird damage.
The Pest Doctors use a range of bird management techniques to exclude birds from an area or building. The product choice and design of the exclusion system depends on the nature of the site, the species present and the level of bird pressure.
How Bird Control In Brisbane Can Help
We have a range of humane methods that we utilise to get rid of bird problems in different situations. The first option is usually a bird management technique that excludes birds from a building or area. This is more humane than removing them, and it’s also a more sustainable solution that prevents them from coming back. The product we choose to use will depend on the bird species, the number of birds and the nature of the site. The solutions we can offer include bird spikes, bird posts and wires, bird slopes, repellent gel, shock systems, bird netting, vinyl strip curtains and scaring devices.
If this isn’t enough to deal with the issue, we do also offer bird removal in Brisbane using trapping or shooting as a last resort. If you want to protect your solar panels, we can bird proof your Brisbane solar panels to ensure they remain free from bird droppings and no birds nest underneath them. After any bird removal service, we also offer cleaning services to clean up nests and droppings to prevent disease and other pest problems like bird mites or spider pest control. Read More
Humane Brisbane Bird Removal Solutions
At Pest Doctors, we focus on humane bird proofing and removal so that no birds or solar panels need to be harmed. We have a range of different products we can use to find the perfect one that suits your building, the bird species involved and the level of bird pressure. The most common solution we have is to install steel mesh from the edge of the solar panels down to the roof to prevent birds from roosting there. This has no impact on your solar panel warranty and doesn’t involve any drilling into the solar panels. We can also install a more substantive bird exclusion system if the problem is more serious than that, using spikes, posts and wires, slopes, shock systems, repellent gels and more to keep your roof bird-free.

General Bird & Pigeon Removal Services
The Pest Doctors are very much focused on humane bird management techniques, so prefer to use exclusion techniques to protect an area or building rather than trapping or shooting (which can also be provided if no other method is possible). A well-designed bird management system will provide lasting protection from problem birds.
A number of products and technique are utilised to bird proof buildings. The choice of product is heavily influenced by the nature of the area to be protected, the size and behaviour of the bird species present, the number of birds present and the aesthetics required (some buildings require a low profile or ‘invisible’ product).
Products for ledges and narrow resting areas:
- Bird spikes
- Bird post and wire
- Bird slope
- Repellent Gel
- Electrified shock system
For large spaces / indoor areas:
- Bird netting
- Vinyl strip curtains / doors
A range of scaring devices are also sometimes required.
As bird removal activities involve working at height and often close to electrical services, the Pest Doctors take all necessary safety precautions when carrying out an installation and are fully insured.
Best Method to Control Birds
Why do you need to protect your solar panels from birds?
- Bird droppings are very acidic and can quickly cause damage to the metal components
- Mess on the solar panels can greatly reduce their efficiency and the amount of electricity generated
How does the Pest Doctors protect your solar panels?
In many residential situations, the issue is cause by birds nesting underneath the panels. As such, our standard solar proofing service includes the installation of steel mesh from the edge of the panels to the roofing material. The mesh is secured by specially designed fixings so no drilling to the panels is required.
Our bird proofing methods won’t void your solar panel manufacturer warranty.
However, sometimes the problem is caused by large numbers of birds resting or roosting on the roof and panels. This is particularly the case with pigeons. In such cases a more substantial exclusion system will need to be designed and installed to keep the roof bird free and it can definitely be done with our specialised bird proofing solar panels.
Cleaning Services after Bird Removal
Cleaning up after a pigeon removal in Brisbane is an important part of bird management. Without cleaning up the bird nesting materials and droppings there is a significant risk of disease transfer and pest problems (eg. bird mites) in the building.
The Pest Doctors can clean up all bird mess and provide disinfectant treatments as part of the service.

Why are pest birds a problem?
- Bird droppings are corrosive and cause damage to buildings and surfaces.
- Droppings, nesting material and feathers impact businesses, spoiling products and goods for sale
- Birds feeding on agricultural and horticultural crops can cause significant crop loses
- Birds and their droppings carry a wide range of diseases, such as Salmonella, coli, psittacosis and histoplasmosis
- Birds also carry a number of parasites, including bird mites and lice, which can make their way into buildings
- It may seem unlikely, but large amounts of droppings on pavements can create a slip hazard (it does happen!) with potential litigation issues – The Pest Doctors have been involved in major projects such as the Queens Wharf development for this very reason!
A good bird management / exclusion plan can be a good investment, saving money by avoiding:
- Regular clean-up costs
- Lost product / goods
- Repair damage to buildings
- A large number of roosting birds can create a significant noise issue
Pest bird species
There are regulations around the management of pest birds, which is why it is important to choose a pest control company like the Pest Doctors that have significant bird management experience. If the pest bird happens to be a native animal there are additional restrictions, as there a penalties for harming native animals.
In Brisbane, the key pest birds are the common (Indian) myna, pigeon (or rock dove), starling and sparrow. All these birds are invasive pests (not native).
Native birds that cause pest problems (and so have to be managed carefully), include the silver gull (seagull), sulphur crested cockatoo, corella, Australian white ibis and welcome swallow.
