The safety and health of students and staff are always a priority for schools. As such, school officials are
taking a more aggressive stance on bird control. Due to the potential diseases and bacteria birds leave
behind in their droppings, it is important to impose an integrated bird control system. Since birds are
opportunistic, they tend to perch and nest in areas with high food sources. Schools are a great place
for birds to scavenge both food and water; not to mention all of the places that provide safe nesting
sites. BirdBusters has worked with schools to complete an integrated bird control program that safely
removes hazardous bird droppings and prevents birds from nesting.
Our technicians are trained to create a comprehensive bird control program for schools that account for
current landing and nesting problem areas as well as potential new ones. By completing an integrated
system that may include multiple methods of bird control, schools are able to reduce costly clean up and
equipment replacement expenses. Not to mention play sheds, and outside eating areas are less likely to
be contaminated by bird droppings.
Many school districts are remodeling or building new schools to accommodate growing class sizes.
BirdBusters staff has worked with architects and building engineers to design/build bird control
programs that are effective, aesthetically pleasing, and still fall under required budgets. BirdBusters
has worked on designs for everything from water features and H-Vac units to stadiums and outside play
areas. No project is too large or too small for our team.
Netting – Installing netting under eaves, rafters, or structural beams removes perching or nesting sites
for birds of all sizes. Netting effectively eliminates access to birds by placing a physical barrier between
the bird and the desired nesting or loafing site. Unsightly droppings and debris will no longer be an
Spikes – When medium sized birds are perching on ledges, spikes make a great physical barrier.
BirdBusters carries the highest industry standard all stainless steel spike, so that any job we complete
has a longer warranty and the products will not become brittle and break over time. Spikes also come in
different sizes so that any ledge from narrow to wide can be effectively treated.
Screening – Small to medium sized birds will often find holes in siding or small nooks and make them
into nesting sites. BirdBusters removes the damaged material and installs a ¼” steel screen the
effectively prevents access to these spaces. Not only are the birds unable to get back into the voids, but
they are also unable to remove or break through the new stronger screening.
Cleaning - When birds have been nesting in buildings, attic spaces or even just hanging out on roofs
and ledges, droppings will accumulate. It is important to have a trained professional that has the
appropriate safety gear and knowledge to clean and properly dispose of the droppings.
Trapping – When an adequate bird control system is over budget, using live traps to remove the existing
problem is an effective alternate means of bird removal or population control. When play sheds or roof
areas only have a small population of birds, weekly visits can effectively reduce or eliminate the bird
population in a cost effective manner.
Live bird removal - Some situations require that birds be removed by non-lethal means. Small birds
that are protected under the Federal Migratory Bird Act may fly into offices, gymnasiums, or cafeterias.
When one of these situations occur, BirdBusters has a program to safely remove the bird without
