As Canberra’s leading bird and pest control provider, we take care of any pest infestation or problems affecting your home or business.
Canberra’s warm, dry climate, parks and rivers are ideal for birds. Our professionally trained bird and pest technicians provide safe and effective treatments and deterrents targeting affected areas of your property.
We offer bird inspections along with a selection of discreet, harmless bird deterrents to suit your home or business.
If birds are a nuisance, stop scaring them away. Call (02) 6147 2613 to speak to an expert for more information.
Canberra has some of the most beautiful birds in the world. The lower slopes of Mt Ainslie, Mt Majura and Black Mountain are popular bird-watching spots. But unfortunately, birds can cause destruction and be an annoyance to homes and businesses in the city and suburban areas.
Trying to scare birds away will cost you time and labour. DIY methods are not tailored to the bird problems we have in Canberra. They’re either a short term fix, don’t work or could actually harm the bird.
Our technicians are regularly called to discourage Indian mynas, pigeons and swooping Magpies away from businesses and homes. We have simple, yet effective solutions to deter birds from nesting and roosting on your property.
While some species are native, many nuisance birds are introduced. If you have birds returning to your property, ask a professional to install discreet bird proofing.
Birds can cause problems for homes and businesses in Canberra
Parks, farms and rivers attract various native and migratory birds to homes and businesses in the city. Problems occur when birds start to nest close to properties or settle in large numbers. Even one ibis bird can be a nuisance, especially on bin night.
Bird problems range from the odd swooping to financial property damage.
Birds can damage property
Nests can block drain pipes, damage solar panels and wiring. Birds can even dislodge roof tiles to enter the roof void. Once in the roof void, their faeces and water leakage cause further damage to your roof space and insulation. Some birds, such as cockatoos, can break off wood and other materials with strong beaks.
Bird droppings carry diseases
Bird droppings contain uric acid, which eats away at paint and other building material. If you have birds roosting together regularly at the same location, the droppings can cause damage, not to mention look unattractive. Bird droppings can affect businesses, especially hospitality venues.
Birds can carry diseases
Mites, lice and bacteria can be spread to humans through birds. Salmonella and E.Coli bacteria can be passed to humans through bird droppings or nests. Hospitality businesses in Canberra need to be aware of bird behaviour, as a disease outbreak may affect their reputation. Birds also attract insects, which can cause other problems.
Magpies and plovers swoop during the spring nesting season. Kookaburras and cockatoos can be quite brazen when it comes to stealing food from your plate.

I had the very calm and professional Tom Andrews come by all week to catch what we thought was a possum in our roof. It... was clear from day one that he knew how these animals behaved and was very quickly able to determine that it was infact a different issue. He used multiple techniques and was able to sort it out very quickly. We haven't heard scratching or banging in the roof since he did his magic. Job well done!!read more

Flick is the best pest control service I’ve ever used. Marc O’Donnell came again today, having been here 2 years ago... for the same service. He was on time, extremely friendly and helpful, and did a thorough job inspecting the house. He also applied long-acting pesticide inside and out. He was the first of the inspectors to recommend the treatment in 2020. The treatment has been very effective controlling insects and spiders until the next inspection. Marc’s reports are professional with practical recommendations for termite prevention. I can highly recommend the service and have been very happy with the results.read more

Absolutely awesome service. Thank you Martin Kennedy for doing our yearly termite inspection. Not only did he check... everything he also answered my questions in regards to treated fence and how they can get into your house. A very knowledgeable technician who confirmed what I knew was correct. We have annual inspections for our termite barrier which was installed when the house was built. I strongly encourage people to get Flick out to do an inspection on the property before you buy. Don’t rely on your usual pest inspection. Martin would be the ideal person to do an inspection before you buy. His knowledge is outstanding. Thank you Martin.read more
Both Marc and Michael were on time and extensively inspected the roof void and underfloor of our property to find the... source of our insect infestation. They identified where specific activity had occurred and recommendations for future-proofing the property. The nature of our build was such that they could not directly remove the source but at least we now know where the problem lies! They were both very professional, informative and helpful. We would use Flick and these two technicians again. Also, the receptionist when I booked the call was very helpful and understanding and provided us with an early next-day callout (as well as a very specific time!), which was very much appreciated.read more
